New Laws For Drone Usage In California Are Coming

Long Beach Bail BondsHave drones gotten a little too out of control? They’re cool gadgets to have to take fun and awesome photos and video (did you see the one that flew through fireworks to capture video?), but as more people get their hands on these fliers, more issues and complaints have risen. Most recently you’ve probably heard in the news:

  • Invading private property
  • Threatening and endangering large aircrafts like airplanes and helicopters

Well California, some new laws might be put into place. One would ban drones from flying below 350 feet over private property without the owner’s or tenant’s consent. People don’t want to have to worry about a drone flying around their backyard or trying to peep through their window.

Another law would allow police and firemen to destroy drones if it is inter...

Why We Love What We Do

Logn Beach Bail Bond StoreBail bonds don’t exist because the bail bond companies and the government want your money. Bail bonds exist because you have the right to be protected and, despite any crime you did or did not commit, the government wants to help you protect your rights. It might be a little convoluted that the government is trying to both punish you and protect you, but you have rights either way.

  • You have the right to non-excessive bail.
  • You have the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

These are two of the most important rights bail bond companies serve to protect for people who have been arrested.

Bail is expensive to pay, but having a third party bail bond company like Long Beach Bail Bonds is very helpful and more affordable. Bail bond companies do not have the power to reduce the s...

Bail Out A Friend In Time For Labor Day Weekend Plans!

Long-Beach-Bail-Bonds-servicesLabor Day Weekend is the last big weekend of Summer (officially) and friends and families love getting together for barbecues and short vacations. When someone very integral to the group and group dynamic is missing, then it just “won’t be the same,” as the saying goes.

Luckily what you can do is help get them a bail bond, especially if they cannot afford to pay for bail on their own. A bail bond will cost 10% of the full bail amount here at Long Beach Bail Bonds, and this can be paid over a period of months...

It’s Not A Happy Birthday If It’s Spent In Jail

Long Beach Bail BondsYou’re out celebrating your birthday like you always do – food and drinks with the best company. And it being your birthday and all, you probably are drinking more than your friends are. That’s fine and all, but don’t you dare drive yourself home. What if you get pulled over? What if you get into an accident? What if someone gets seriously injured or killed? What if you get arrested?

We realize these are very depressing thoughts but you must remember the seriousness of the consequences of drinking and driving. Drinking and driving can result in any number of crimes that could have otherwise been avoided. Your arrest is not how you want to end your birthday celebrations, right?

Arrange for a sober friend or family member to drive you home, or get a cab...

What Being A Good Role Model Means To Others

West Carson Bail Bond StoreYou may not realize it, but there are a lot of people who look up to you. This includes the people you love like friends and family, probably some coworkers and classmates, and even strangers. You carry quite a big load here then, in terms of not letting these people down by showing them a side of you that you yourself don’t like, such as having a rough patch and getting into legal trouble.

What might happen is that they will lose respect, think about you differently, question their perception others and question if they are making bad decisions in looking up to you, or worse, follow in your footsteps to fall into the same undesirable paths. You don’t want that. They don’t want that.

Yes there is some pressure to presenting yourself well for others but it gets easier and eventually, it’s j...

Holiday Weekend DUI Checkpoints And What Happens At Them

Encino Bail Bond Store
If you plan on drinking over Labor Day Weekend, as always, drink responsibly. And make other decisions (such as driving) responsibly. You can certainly expect the police to dispatch more officers for the weekend and have additional DUI checkpoints set up. Some checkpoints may be announced early, and some you might know about.

What happens at a checkpoint is the officers will guide your car to the side of the road so they can check that you are not driving under the influence or drugs or alcohol. You will roll down your window and the following will occur:

  • You will present your driver’s license, car registration, and car insurance
  • You will be asked if you’ve been drinking tonight
  • You will be asked where you are headed
  • The officer will look for signs of intoxication like slurred speech...

Don’t Stress About Your Finances And Meeting Bail Payments – Long Beach Bail Bonds Makes It Easy And Affordable

Long Beach Bail Bonds Service

Some people can pay their whole bail to the court; other people use a bail bond, which costs them 10% of the whole bail amount. This doesn’t mean that the rich are the ones paying for their own bail, and this doesn’t mean that the poor are using bail bonds. It all comes down to what is more of an ideal situation for the person at the time. Rich people, celebrities included, use bail bonds too, you know.

We don’t want people to get the wrong impression that bail bonds are like charity for poor people who got arrested. Bail can be very expensive and to be honest, even a bail bond can still be pretty expensive, especially if the original bail was hundreds of thousands of dollars. That’s why we allow bail bonds to be paid off on a payment schedule...

Paying For Bail Alone? Use A Bail Bond From Long Beach Bail Bonds!

Long Beach Bail Bonds
You don’t need to ask Mom or Dad for money to bail out of jail. You’re financially independent and you’re too proud to ask them for money. (You’d actually rather keep spending on them if you can because they’ve done so much for you growing up.) Plus, you don’t want to burden them and drag them into this mess.

Luckily, you don’t have to stress about paying the full bail amount that the judge gave you. You can pay only a small percentage of that instead by getting help from a bail bond company. There may be more stipulations when it comes to applying for a bail bond but if you’re absolutely adamant on being independent and paying this all on your own, you’ll definitely want to go the most affordable route as possible.

Can Someone Travel While They’re Out On Bail?

Long Beach Bail Bonds
You’ve been anxious and excited for your upcoming travel plans ever since the beginning of the year when you locked it in. But just the other week, your travel buddy was arrested and then released on bail. Is this going to ruin your trip? Can your travel pal still go with you?

The answer to this question will depend on the judge’s requirements, terms, and conditions of your friend’s release. Unless the judge forbids this person from leaving a certain geographical boundaries (i.e. city, state, and/ or country), the defendant can still go on the trip with you. In addition, a bail bond cosigner may ask for certain conditions to be attached to the bail bond and if this impacts travel, so be it.

Keep in mind though, that your friend out on bail must appear in court when he or she is aske...
