A law can be defined as a rule or guideline put in place by a higher power to ensure the safety of citizens and as a way of promoting justice. As a society we typically obey all laws that are intelligible (easily understood). These laws are present to protect us in ways that prevent us from being put in harmful or dangerous situations. Every law has a purpose and that purpose is usually to make our lives safer. For example, trespassing laws are put in place to prevent others from entering private property without permission.
