New laws set to take effect with new year.

The new year brings with it new laws that take effect all over the country. In Kentucky, for instance, it will cost us $6.00 more to register our cars; and, the police can now issue you a $25.00 ticket -- not merely issue you a warning -- for not wearing a seat belt, even if that is your only offense. (Before the police could ticket you only if you first commit another driving infraction, like running a stop sign or traffic light). In Louisiana, the upward spiraling divorce rates in America (particularly in the south where more than half of ALL marriages end in divorce) prompted that state Legislature to take admirable steps to encourage married couples' reconciliation. There is now a law in Louisiana requiring couples with children to wait a year after seperation before divorcing. Read more about new laws.
