Be Prepared for October 18

Be Prepared for October 18

California is pretty well known for having plenty of wildfires, and 2018 has been no exception. This year’s fire season has been one of the worst in state in history, but it was at least expected. The one plus side to wildfires, is that they follow a bit of a forecast. Here in California, wildfires become much more common during the warm months of summer and fall, making them a slightly predictable emergency.

Earthquakes, on the other hand, are just about as unpredictable as emergencies come. They can happen whenever and wherever in California, making them much scarier. Sometimes the ground will rumble, and it will be over in a second, before anyone can even register that an earthquake took place. Other ties however, things can be much worse.

Large scale earthquakes can strike without...

Don’t Cross While Distracted

Don’t Cross While Distracted

We all know that using a cellphone while driving is a bad idea. It distracts the drivers and makes it much more likely for him or her to cause an accident. While this is a big deal, there is another time involving cars when it is not a good idea to be on the phone. That is when a person is crossing the street.

Crossing a street can be dangerous if not done at a proper time, or if either the pedestrian or driver are not fully paying attention. In the city of Montclair, around 15% of all vehicle related fatalities occur in pedestrian involved traffic collisions. The city looks to reduce that number with their new city-wide ordinance.

This new ordinance makes it illegal for a person to cross a road while distracted by their cellphone or any other electronic device...

Exhaust Modifications. Yay or Nay?

Exhaust Modifications. Yay or Nay?

One of the first things drivers who purchase a sportscar want to do is play with the exhaust. They want to hear the vehicle rumble and purr every time they turn it on. While the modified exhaust does alert every other driver on the road that they’re sharing the space with a tricked-out sports car, it also catches the attention of the local patrol officers.

In a perfect world, the mechanic you bring your sports car to for exhaust work will let you know if the system they’re installing will get you in legal trouble. Unfortunately, the world isn’t perfect and there’s no shortage of mechanics who will place the loudest exhaust they can find on your vehicle even though the system isn’t legal in the state.

It’s up to you to take the time to research California’s laws about the ...

What Are Your Kids Doing This Summer?

What Are Your Kids Doing This Summer?

Summer is here and schools have let out for the year. Children are excited as they get to experience a bit of freedom for the next few months. However, parents might be approaching the break with a bit of apprehension. How are they supposed to keep their children entertained for the next few months while maintaining a proper work schedule?

Juggling kids and a job is not an easy task, but it can be done. Some parents may have kids who are old enough to take care of themselves during the work day. While this is nice, don’t forget to keep in touch with them. They still need an adult’s guidance from time to time.

In today’s modern world, it is easier than ever for kids to get ahold of material that may not be appropriate for younger audiences...

Truly Weird Rules of the Road

Truly Weird Rules of the Road

Drivers training is the time when you learn what things you can and can’t do while behind the wheel, however, it turns out that there are a few California road rules your driver’s training instructor failed to mention.

The Road Isn’t the Place to Take a Nap

Most of us have had a time when we found we were just too tired to keep driving. The simplest solution is to pull over somewhere and grab a quick power nap. If road fatigue strikes you while you’re traveling through Eureka California, it’s in your best interest to find a fast food place or nice rest area before parking. The town has a strict law stating that while you’re there, you’re breaking the law each time you use the road as a bed...

Fire Preparation

Fire Preparation

With temperatures finally dropping, some Californians are breathing a sigh of relief because they managed to survive yet another fire season. However, that’s not always the case. This past year, there were thousands of arcs burned, and hundreds of homes lost to fires. Once a fire gets too big, there is no controlling it, it just burns whatever gets in its path.

Even though it may feel like we’re done with fires for the season, California is still very dry. On top of wild fires, we also have to be prepared to handle a fire inside our homes. The Red Cross’s website has plenty of information to help prepare your household for a fire.

Before a fire:
• Form a plan.
• Install and regularly check your fire alarms.
• Have two escape routes for every room.
• Practice your plan.

No Child Left Behind

call-acton-bailbonds

As the weather begins to warms up again here in Southern California, we would like to remind parents that convenience is not always the better option, especially when it comes to your kids. It could be the line that defines whether you are a good or bad parent!

For example, you just picked up your 5 year old from pre-school. You need to make a quick stop at the store to buy toilet paper before you go home.

You have two scenarios:

1. Bring your child into the store with you and possibly deal with their crying, screaming, running around, nonstop talking, grabbing and breaking things, etc. Imagine the most nightmarish trip to the store.

2. Leave your child in the car and you will be in and out of the store in 10 minutes. Easy peasy!

Well, unless your child is 7 years old or older, you ...

What to Expect with the New Marijuana Laws of California

call-acton-bailbonds

As you know, California passed Prop 64 last November, making marijuana usage legal in California. However, as you might expect, the prop is not that simple to follow. There are details and complexities written within the prop and forthcoming laws. There are regulations and concerns that must be addressed.

Here is what you should know right now:

  • Anyone over the age of 21 can use, possess, and share up to one ounce of flowers or eight grams of concentrate of marijuana.
  • Anyone over the age of 21 can grow marijuana at home. What is tricky now is that a person cannot purchase a cannabis plant. Rather, they must receive it from another person who is already growing marijuana, and there must be no money transfer. In addition, no more than 6 plants may be grown at home at one time.
  • The state ...

Treat Bail Bond Payments Like You do Rent

call-acton-bailbonds

Choosing to post bail using a bail bond means:

    1. You pay less, overall
    2. You pay in increments over a custom payment plan
    3. You have an understanding, accommodating, and helpful bail agent

It does not mean that you should not prioritize bail bond payments. Keep track of what you owe and when. Also keep track of when you have made a payment. Look at your spending habits elsewhere. You may find that you need to re-work your budget so you can keep up with bail bond payments like you do your rent and utility bills.

Something you will want to keep an eye out for in the mail is your tax return. Hopefully this will be a rather hefty amount of money that you get back from the government. Instead of splurging this on a shopping spree, apply it towards your bail bond payments...
