Most people try to live their lives as productive members of society who obey the laws of the land and try not to cause any problems. In fact, the vast majority of the public will purposely go out of their way to ensure that they don’t fall foul of any rules and don’t put themselves in a position where they could be punished for illegal acts. Unfortunately, the huge number of laws and their relative obscurity can sometimes mean that most people aren’t even aware that they exist. This can lead to large numbers of people breaking them every day without even realizing they are doing anything wrong.
Throwing Out Previous Owner’s Mail
It can be incredibly frustrating when you move into a new house and keep getting junk mail delivered to the previous occupier of the property. While there isn’t much you can do to fix the problem, it can land you in trouble if you decide to throw out the mail. This is because of laws that prevent the destruction or opening of post that doesn’t belong to you, and breaking such laws can carry custodial sentences.
