Using Marijuana While Driving

Using Marijuana While Driving

low-income-bail-bonds-in-long-beach

Yes, you can legally use marijuana for recreational purposes in California, but that doesn’t mean you can use it wherever you feel like it. California lawmakers treat recreational marijuana the same way they treat alcohol. It’s a substance that you’re free to use provided you’re able to do so without potentially hurting other people.

The potential to hurt yourself or someone else is why you’re not allowed to use marijuana while you’re driving.

While most people assume that California’s Vehicle Code 23221 VC only pertains to alcohol, if you take the time to read through it, you’ll discover that marijuana is also addressed. The code states that:

  • A driver shall not drink any alcoholic beverage or smoke or ingest marijuana or any marijuana product while driving a motor vehic...

What to Do if Your Neighbor’s Christmas Decorations are Over the Top

What to Do if Your Neighbor’s Christmas Decorations are Over the Top

discount-bail-bonds-in-long-beach

The holiday season is here. For many of us, that means breaking up the average, boring scenery with decorations that depict your favorite part of the holiday. Most of us love seeing how creative our neighbors are and will even sometimes engage in holiday decoration contests where you try to see who can upstage whom.

For the most part, holiday decorations are fun and everyone enjoys them but there are always exceptions. Sometimes a neighbor will go too far and instead of being a source of joy, the holiday decorations are actually an annoyance.

It’s important to know how to respond when your neighbor’s holiday decorating goes too far.

The first thing you should do is remind yourself that the holiday season is relatively short...

Avoid a DUI This Thanksgiving

Avoid a DUI This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. This is a time for family stories, friends, and great food. Many of us use the few days at home to catch up with loved ones that we rarely get to see.

Thanksgiving should be spent with friends and family. You shouldn’t spend it in jail facing DUI charges, yet that’s exactly what happens to many people.

There is something about the Thanksgiving holiday that inspires people to drink. This is particularly true the night before the actual holiday. Each year an astounding number of people are charged with DUI during the holiday weekend. In addition to not drinking and getting behind the wheel, make sure you’re buckled up.

Getting charged with a DUI will do more than ruin your Thanksgiving, it will ruin your immediate future.

If this is your firs...

Be A Good Role Model For Your Family

Be A Good Role Model For Your Family

no-down-payment-bonds-in-long-beach

For any of you out there who have children, you know how crucial it is to be a solid role model for them. That means being honest, honorable, and a well-rounded family-person. Parents can’t afford to go out and drink every night, do drugs, avoid traffic violation tickets, get into arguments (that could lead to altercations), etc.

Having a child means the consequences of such actions are more heartbreaking:

  • Your child could grow up without you in his or her life.
  • Your child, old enough to know what you had been up to, could make the serious decision to cut you out of their life.
  • Your child could also begin to start trouble and end up in jail, just like you.
  • Your family is no longer a family, and your home is no longer a home.

    You can avoid all of this simply by looking and evaluating...

The Unlawful Taking of Pictures and Video Recording

Thanks to built-in cameras on smartphones, most of us have a camera at our disposal 24/7. We’re able to record everything. We use the phone camera for selfies, points of interest, and to record the actions of others. We’ve grown so accustomed to taking photos and videos of everything that we rarely stop and think about the fact that there are certain times, places, and situations when taking pictures and video recordings is actually against the law.

Learning that there are cases where a person has broken the law with videos or photos they’ve snapped can make you have second thoughts about using your camera. The good news is that the odds are pretty good that you’re not going to record anything that will break the law...

Probation and Parole. What’s the Difference?

Probation and Parole. What's the Difference?

Probation and Parole. What's the Difference?

If you’re confused about the difference between probation and parole, you’re not alone. Most people don’t really know what the difference is between the two until they get into trouble with the law.

While you’re on probation, you’re still technically in police custody, but you have a great deal more freedom than you’d enjoy if you were in jail. There will be some rules attached to your probation, breaking any of these rules will result in you losing your probation status and being locked in a cell. One of the big things you’ll have to do is routinely meet with your probation officer who will insist that you prove you’re following the rules.

Many people are put on probation without ever seeing the inside of a jail cell.

Parole is both similar to probation and different...

The Truth About Parking Lot Safety

We take parking lots for granted. We treat them like a casual place to leave our car while we run into a nearby building.

We’re usually so focused on either getting to the store/office/school/government building or getting into our vehicle to go home, that we seldom stop and think about how dangerous parking lots really are.

The truth is that every time you use a parking lot, you put your life at risk.

A surprising number of people are injured in parking lot falls every single year. In most cases the reason for the fall is innocent, you tripped on a stick, a pothole, or even your own feet...

Are you Being Stalked?

Stalking is a major problem in the United States. Every single year there are about 6 million people who find themselves in a position of having to report stalking-related incidents.

While most stalking victims are women, that’s not always the case. Each year men, who often assume that they don’t have to worry about stalkers, find themselves being followed. Some female stalkers have even murdered their victims.

The sooner you recognize the early warning signs of a stalker, the safer you will ultimately be.

When stalking victims look back on their history with their stalker, they usually notice that things started getting weird when they continually ran into the person in various locations...

How Serious is Road Rage

long-beach-bail-bonds

long-beach-bail-bonds

The first time the term “road rage” was officially used was during the 80s when a team of broadcasters decided the term perfectly summed up the cause of a highway shooting. Since that broadcast, road rage has become a regular part of our working vocabulary. At the same time, it has become a serious problem for every single driver.

Road rage is a burst of strong, negative emotion that is triggered by some incident that happens while a person is driving. In most cases, we’re able to clench our jaws, hang onto the steering wheel, and wait for the emotional vortex to pass.

The problem is that some of us aren’t able to ride out a burst of road rage...
