Cell Phone Use While Driving Is Dangerous

Cell Phone Use While Driving Is Dangerous

Even with all of the PSA’s out there, there are still some drivers who think it is okay to talk on their cell phone while driving. It is still a common enough practice that you can see at least once a day. However, driving while talking on a cell phone without a hands-free device is illegal in California. If a driver is caught breaking the law, they will face consequences.

Driving while using a cell phone can be very distracting, which can cause a driver to not notice important events going on around them. This leads to an increased chance of their being an accident, which is why the practice was outlawed. It is estimated that roughly 28% of all car accidents in the US are caused by cell phone use behind the wheel. This equate to about 1.6 million car accidents every year.

Crime Rates and the 10 Safest Places to Live in California

Crime Rates and the 10 Safest Places to Live in California

Whether a person is looking to move or just wants to know how safe their neighborhood is, they will probably end up looking at crime rates. Looking at crime rates and statistics allows a person to get a good idea of how safe or dangerous an area may be. Having this information helps a person determine if they want to live in an area, or whether or not they want to raise kids there.

Unfortunately, not every city in the world is as safe as every other city. Some places are safe enough for their residents to walk the streets without a care in the world. In other areas, a person could run into trouble just going around the block. Anyone looking to make an informed and safe decision regarding their future should know exactly what they are getting into when living in certain areas.

Did You Hear about This Change to Kids Car Seats?

Did You Hear about This Change to Kids Car Seats?

Any experienced parent will tell you that kids need different kinds of car seats at different ages. As the child grows, they need different styles of car seats until they are finally big enough to sit in the seat without any additional device. For a long time, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that children should remain in rear-facing car seats until they are 2 years old. However, that has now changed.

Recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics changed their recommendation and eliminated the age limit. Now they say that a child should remain in a rear-facing car seat until they weigh over 40 pounds. The lead author of the updated rule said: “It’s best to keep your child rear-facing as long as possible. This is still the safest way for children to ride.”

Are You Sure You Want to Post That Online?

call-newhall-bailbonds

Employers are not the only people you should be worried about when you think, “I shouldn’t post that on social media.” These days, friends, family, police officers, activists groups, and even the general public need to be taken into consideration. Everyone is on social media and you never know whose hands your content can end up in.

Did you know that many law enforcement agencies now have special units that focus on delving into social media accounts, looking for evidence of criminal activity? People are too trusting, and even boastful, on social media. They over-share. This can end up hurting the individual and benefiting the police. Things like threats, photos with guns, and photos that are taken from a trespassing point of view can be incriminating...

Benefits and Risks of Bail Bond Co-Signers

call-newhall-bailbonds

Dealing with an arrest is an incredibly stressful and tense time, not just for the individual, but for their loved ones as well. There will be some bickering, but there should be mostly figuring out how to get through this situation together. Multiple parties will be involved in some way or another: the defendant, a bail bond company like Newhall Bail Bond Store, employers who may need to know, friends, family, a lawyer, and a co-signer.

This all sounds pretty straight-forward, but not the co-signer. What is a co-signer, and what do they do?

A co-signer is needed for the bail bond portion. This person assumes responsibility of the defendant to see that they show up for their court appointments. If the defendant does not, the co-signer will face consequences, such as needing to pay monet...

Don’t You Know: Life Is Not Perfect

call-newhall-bailbonds

Life is far from perfect, no one has a perfect life. At some point, everyone gets in trouble, from cutting curfew or not doing homework, to doing something wrong at work or speeding. That right there is already an indication that no one is perfect, and life is not either. The good thing is that we manage to recover from these negative moments. It’s certainly possible to get life right back on track, even something as extreme as getting arrested.

Most people who are arrested are given the opportunity to post bail. Bail can be posted with cash or with a bail bond. The latter of which is more affordable and ideal for most people, yet still very much valid. Posting bail is the immediate first step toward resolving this situation and getting things back to normal.

Get Over the Embarrassment and Get a Bail Bond

call-newhall-bailbonds

When you are in a very rocky situation, keeping secrets is not the best idea. It is brave, yet immature, to believe that you can handle this situation on your own. You can handle this situation faster and when you have a handful of trusted friends and family backing you up.

Admitting to loved ones that we were arrested would be embarrassing for us too. Our poor judgement and behavior in that defining moment is not a reflection of the ones who raised us. We all make mistakes, this was one of them. It has come and gone, and now we are tasked with damage control.

We do not expect our loved ones to clean up the mess we made, but we do hope they will find some way, big or small, to offer support by any means: emotional, financial, or legal.

Asking for support does not stop at our loved ones...
