Halloween came and went and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. The holiday season is upon us and that means a lot of parties, family, and drinking. This is a great time of year and is usually filled with lots of fun. Unfortunately, some people make a single decision that can ruin the festivities for everyone.

Alcohol is often very prominent at parties, and so naturally, people tend to get drunk at holiday parties. On its own, this is fine. The trouble comes when someone who has been drinking decides they are going to drive themselves home. They think things like they’re fine, or just buzzed, and then take their keys and leave. Sometimes they make it home. Other times they don’t.

Drinking and driving is illegal, and everyone knows that...

In this day and age, there really is no reason for anyone to ever drive drunk. Advancements in technology, primarily the smart phone, have made finding a ride home easy and affordable. Apps like Uber and Lyft allow a person to hire a ride at any time, just about anywhere.

Despite this fact, some people still refuse to use these apps.

These people would rather drive drunk than spare a few extra bucks to ensure that they get home safely. What these people fail to realize, is that the consequences of driving drunk cost far more than just hiring a ride for the evening. Aside from the obvious risking of life and limb, the cost of a DUI is far more expensive than an Uber home.

What Kind of Driving Is Worse Than Drunk Driving?

Driving is something that pretty much every single adult does every day. They drive to get to work, to run errands, and take their kids wherever they need to go. Driving is such a part of everyone’s day to day life that no one really bats an eye at it. Everyone is used to driving, which makes driving more dangerous.

When people deal with something on a daily basis, they tend to forget how risky that something can be. This is definitely the case with driving. On its own, driving can be very dangerous. When travelling that quickly, it doesn’t take much for something to go wrong. This is why a driver needs to keep their focus on the road and the task at hand. Looking away for even a second can have deadly consequences.

Dont drink and drive

Saint Patrick’s Day is almost here, and people all over the country are making plans to go out and party. This green holiday is one of the biggest of the year when it comes to drinking. For the most part that isn’t much of a problem. However, there are some people out there who make all of the drinking a very big problem.

A few bad people is all it takes to completely ruin something, and that is exactly what people do when they drink and then drive. This is extremely dangerous and is a choice that not only affects the person driving, but everyone they pass on the road. All it takes is one slip up, and they can collide with another driver, a building, or a pedestrian. Then things get really bad.

What Does DUI Stand For?

What Does DUI Stand For?

Just about every driver out there has heard of the term DUI. They know that it is something that they never want to receive and that it has something to do with drinking and driving. What many people may not realize is that DUI covers a whole lot more than drinking and driving. In fact that is why the term was changed from DWI to DUI.

With the recent passing of Proposition 64 in 2016, the state of California started the process of legalizing the use of recreational marijuana. With this legalization came new laws that limited and restricted the use of the drug. Even two years later, there is a bit of confusion as to when and where a person can smoke or ingest marijuana. One of the big questions is whether or not someone can drive after smoking marijuana, or even smoke while driving...

What Is a Watson Murder Charge?

This is one of those many legal terms out there that worry people the moment they hear it. They have no idea what the term can mean, and that causes quite a bit of fear. When someone is facing a Watson Murder charge, they should be very concerned.

A Watson Murder charge occurs when a person commits DUI and kills someone as a result. The name for this charge comes from the ruling in the People v. Watson court case. This allows someone to be charged of second degree murder if they kill someone while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

A Watson Murder charge is a felony offence, and comes with very hefty penalties. A person convicted of a Watson Murder charge will face 15 years, to life in a California state prison. They will also face a fine that can be as much as $10,000.

Drink and Jail = Bail

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Summer is in full swing and we can tell you all are having the times of your lives. For some, however, they may be having a little too much fun. We seem to be bailing numerous individuals out of jail for having too much alcohol, then getting arrested because their actions while inebriated were not the best.

Long Beach Bail Bonds cautions against over-drinking, and especially drinking and driving. Drinking alcohol impairs judgement, and the more that is consumed, the worse your judgment gets. Some people wind up in fights, others go home with the wrong person, and many unfortunately drive while intoxicated.

Sipping on beers, wines, spirits, and cocktails is perfectly fine, provided those who are drinking, are aware of their intake and their limits...

Why More Women Than Men Are Arrested For A DUI

Long Beach Bail Bonds

The California Department of Motor Vehicles conducted a study last year that showed a very interesting trend: more women are being arrested in Orange County and California as a whole for drinking and driving, particularly those in the 21-35 and 51+ age group. For men, DUI-related arrests have decreased. This trend is the same in other states like Missouri and New York.

Though there is no definitive reason behind this trend, there are a few possibilities:

  1. California is cracking down on people who are driving under the influence, and more women are mixing drugs with their alcohol. They may not be drunk, but they are intoxicated.
  2. More women are working today than years before, meaning more women are independent, are earning their own living, can drive cars, and delay building a family so...
