Minors Breaking the Law

juvenile procedure laws in california

Mveryone knows that kids get into trouble. Luckily, for the most part, kids tend to only get in trouble with their parents. As long as parents keep an eye on their children, and play an active role in the child’s life, the kid is less likely to wind up in serious trouble. However, that is not always the case. Sometimes kids mess up in a big way, and find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Finding out that a child has broken a law is a terrible situation for a parent to deal with. No parent ever wants to answer the front door, or a phone, to learn that their child is in some serious trouble. While rare, this does happen from time to time. As such, a parent should be aware of what happens when a minor has a run in with law enforcement agents.

Be Careful Where You Walk Your Dog This Summer

pet safety during summer

Taking care of others isn’t always easy. Often times, the other person or creature needs constant supervision to keep them safe and healthy. Without a constant, watchful eye, the dependent could cause trouble, get hurt, or worse. This is often the case with pets, especially dogs.

Dogs have a tendency to be more high maintenance than cats. Of course, this isn’t to say there are no high maintenance cats out there, but dogs take the lead. They need to be walked and cleaned regularly. Luckily, with summer here, walking dogs is no big deal. The mornings and evening in summer provide the best weather for taking a pup on a nice stroll around a park or along a hiking trail...

What Kind of Video Games Is Your Child Playing?

video game rating

Parenting is not an easy task, but at least school is there to take the kids away for a few hours each day. That helps. However, summer is now here and the kids are free from school for the season. It can be tough for parents to figure out how to keep their kids busy and entertained over the summer.

Nowadays, many kids are easily entertained with a video game of some sort. Luckily, there are plenty of games to choose from to keep the kiddies entertained. However, a parent needs to make sure that the game their kid is playing is appropriate for them. Some parents don’t realize that there is a way to determine what is in a game without having to play it.

How to Rate a Game

Video games come in all sorts of “shapes and sizes...

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 ...
