    Reckless Driving in Los Angeles and California

    Reckless Driving in Los Angeles and California

    Recently, a video surfaced of a group of cars taking over an intersection in South Los Angeles late one night. The video shows at least three separate vehicles doing doughnuts through the intersection at the same time. Meanwhile, spectators look on from the sidewalks, some dangerously close to the vehicles.

    To some people, this may look like fun, but most others see that this is a very dangerous. Not only did this block traffic in the intersection, but it put many people in danger. While it is unclear if any arrests were made in relation to this incident, it is likely that if any of the drivers were caught, they would have been charged with reckless driving.

    California Vehicle Code 23103 makes it a crime for any person to drive their vehicle in a reckless fashion with complete disregard...

    What is Bail and Why does it Exist?

    call-antelope-valley-bailbonds

    Bail exists because it is unconstitutional to hold a person in jail for an unreasonable amount of time after their arrest, but before the declaration of guilt or innocence at the end of trial. Bail is the amount of money a person will owe to the court in order to be released from custody during the trial. The Judge will decides how much the bail is. The judge makes the bail decision based on the crime committed, the defendant’s ties to the community, his or her criminal record, and the threat the defendant may pose to the community.

    Bail can be paid in 100% cash to the court, up-front, and then the defendant will be released, or 10% of it can be paid to a bail bond company like Antelope Valley Bail Bond Store, who will then act as a surety...

    Can a Parent Give their Child Alcohol?

    call-antelope-valley-bailbonds

    Like all states, the minimum age for drinking alcohol in California is 21. However, unlike other states, there are no exceptions to this rule in California. For example, some states allow minors to drink alcohol under the allowance and supervision of their parent or legal guardian, but this is not allowed in California.

    In California, minors who violate the legal age drinking laws for the first time face a $250 fine and 24-32 hours of community service. For subsequent violations, the minor is looking at a fine of $500 maximum and 36 to 48 hours of community service. If they have their driver’s license, it can be suspended for 1 year.

    Cash Bail vs. Bail Bond: Which is Better for Your Situation?

    call-antelope-valley-bailbonds

    Contrary to what some people may think, posting bail using a bail bond does not mean you do not have the funds to post bail in 100% cash. People who use bail bonds are not poorer, they merely see a bail bond as being more beneficial to them.

      Cash Bail
      If posting bail in 100% cash, there is no bail agent to assist and advise the family through the whole process. 100% of the bail must be paid before the defendant can be released from jail, and the money may be refunded later on.

      Bail Bond
      If a family chooses to use a bail bond to post bail, then they pay 10% of the full bail amount. If bail was set at $50,000 for example, they pay $5,000 to the bail bond company. Additionally, they get a custom payment plan so they can pay that $5,000 over a period of months...

    About the New California Cell Phone Use and Driving Laws

    call-antelope-valley-bailbonds

    New California laws banning the use of cellphones while driving have officially been put into place starting January 1, 2017. While such laws have already existed in California for some time now, the new laws expand on existing ones. The existing ones are outdated, having begun when smart phones were less advanced than today, and apps like Waze and social media platforms were less popular.

    The new laws say that drivers may only do a single swipe or tap on their phone, but their phone must be mounted on the dashboard or windshield in the driver’s lower left or upper left corner. A phone mounted in the middle of the windshield is illegal. This allows drivers to use their GPS maps while still maintaining focus on their driving and the road.

    Being Thankful for Family and Bail

    call-antelope-valley-bailbonds

    The Christmas season is a time to be thankful. You have a ton of friends and family members surrounding you during this holiday season. You have a nice home. You have a steady job and your children are in good schools. Be thankful for all of that. These loving people are the ones you need to be most thankful for because they may be the ones to bail you out of jail and save all these other things you have to be thankful for.

    If you cannot post bail on your own, reach out to close friends and family. Someone will step up and offer to help. To make it even easier, bring Ant...
