Q: I received a package in the mail that had my address, but the previous homeowner's name on it. My friend stated that it is OK to keep it as the package was misdelivered, is that right? A: No, that is not correct; your friend is possibly confusing a reference to state and federal law regarding unordered merchandise, which in some situations may be treated like an "unconditional gift." The difference is that your question states the package is addressed to someone else whereas for the unordered merchandise rule to be in effect, the package will have your name on it.

Q: Can I get a ticket if I only use my "daytime running lights" during daytime inclement weather? A: Thank you for this question, with the added snow and weather conditions that we have experienced lately, this is an important safety topic to remind everyone to use their "headlights" during inclement weather.
