Public Safety Violations

Certain state and local laws prohibit behavior that could be considered disruptive or threatening to public safety or the general peace of a public area, such playing loud music in front of a restaurant or inciting violence in a public park. Public safety violations include disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace, which are considered "catch-all" violations for actions or words that compromise the safety or overall peace of public places, varying from state to state. This subsection also includes an in-depth article on public intoxication and a link to FindLaw’s list of all criminal charges.
