Never Drive After Drinking

Never Drive After Drinking

There are a lot of things out there that most of the general public know. This kind of information is referred to as common knowledge. An example of this would be that it is a bad idea to drive while drunk. However, despite the fact that most people know of this fact, many people ignore it. This leads to roughly 30 people dying every single day due to a drunk driver.

They then proceed to get behind the wheel of vehicle and drive off. The problem is that in their current state they are not making the best decisions.

Bicycles and DUI’s

Bicycles and DUI’s

It’s a well known fact that if you drink to much and than get behind the wheel of your vehicle, you’ll get a DUI, which comes with several life altering consequences. In order to preserve their driver’s license and reputation, many California residents who decide they’re going out for a night on the town, decide to leave their car at home and ride their bike instead. The theory is that if they’re on a bike, they don’t have to worry about getting charged with a DUI. Or do they?

call-quartz-hill-bailbonds

You might have thought the talk of elections and voting had ceased for a while, but January 1, 2017 saw the start of a handful of new voting-related laws in California. Here they are:

    1. Californians with low-level felony convictions now have the right to vote. One of the main reasons behind the passing of this new law is the note that many such felons serve their time outside of prison because California prisons are overcrowded.
    2. Voters can now mail in their ballots at any county elections office in the state of California, not just the county who issued the ballot, making it easier to vote for many people.
