We obey the law because it protects us and help regulate everyday life. Without law, we live in a society that total anarchy and are extremely uncivilized. Without law, life would be hell; the potential of people hurting us or our loved ones at any given moment is horrifying. People breaking into our house and stealing our belongings and not even being punished for their crimes. Laws help regulate food violations, water treatment, or even taking care of a city (i.e. road repairs, housing repairs, snow removal).
