As is the case with residents of other states, California property owners, that is, both private residents and business owners, have an obligation to keep their property reasonably safe for others.
A recent daytime crash near Modesto sent 8 people, including two young children, to area hospitals with injuries. Police who responded to the accident described the injuries of two of the victims as quite serious.
As many residents of Modesto probably know, our state recently passed a measure allowing adults to use marijuana legally under certain restrictions. To be clear, though, this change did not affect the prohibition on driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
