Your are lucky living in Mexico....trust me
I read the local newspapers in California just to see how screwed up the state can get. Effective July 1, of this year, all homeowners in California with attached garages are required to have carbon monoxide alarms installed in their houses – or face a $200 fine.
What if you don't want one?
What if you can't hear?
What if you don't own a car, have any gas burning appliances, a furnace ?
YOU STILL MUST HAVE ONE!
It's not that they are expensive, they are less than 50 dollars and I think that they are a good idea, like having a fire extinguisher around the house when you have possibilities that something may catch fire.
The main problem is that there are tons of homes with fire detectors and by last survey close to 50 % of them have been disconnected or no longer working because of the choice of the homeowner.
BUT, having a law that makes you have one, is in my Libertarian view, couple of miles way too far into the govmint sticking their nose into your life.
But that's just my opinion.....
And you wonder why I love Mexico?
I enjoy hearing when friends discuss excited news when they are building a new house NOB.
I then ask them how much it cost for their permits.
I then tell them that for what they paid for their permits and fees, one can build a home in Mexico.
Just another observation.
