Fines for Rolling Stop Signs

Drivers Have to Stop

California is notorious for having drivers who like to play by their own rules. Drivers in the state seem to follow the mentality that if everyone does it, it must be okay. However, this is not the case. After all, if other drivers drove off of a bridge, you wouldn’t follow them. Besides, a driver can still get into trouble for breaking a law, even if other drivers broke it too.

A perfect example of this is when drivers approach stop signs. A driver is supposed to come to a full stop at the limit line, the white line in the road, when they approach a stop sign. This is required by law. However, many drivers prefer to do a rolling stop, also known as a California stop.

A rolling stop occurs when a vehicle does not stop...

Be Safe This Halloween

Be Safe This Halloween

There are certain holidays that just call for parties, and Halloween is one of those days. While kids are out trick-or-treating in search of candy, adults are out partying with friends. While there will still likely be some candy at these parties, most adults have upgraded to something different. Many adults will be consuming alcohol while having a good time.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this, provided it is done responsibly, which is what most people do. However, there are still far too many people out there who will be consuming alcohol this year, and then getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Due to this fact, don’t be surprised to see a rise in DUI checkpoints on Halloween.

Law enforcement officers will be doing everything in their power to keep everyone safe that nigh...

Handling a Cyberbully

Bullying has always been a problem, but prior to the creation of the internet and social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, most bullying was done by someone the victim knew.

Surprising Ways Booze and Cars Don’t Mix

Surprising Ways Booze and Cars Don’t Mix

It’s a well-known fact that you’re not allowed to drive your car when you’re drunk, but there are a few laws that some people don’t know that prove booze and cars don’t mix.

No Open Containers in the Car. Period!

Even if you haven’t had a sip of booze, if there is an open container in the vehicle with you and you get pulled over, you’ll find yourself in deep legal trouble. The Liquor Licence Act prohibits any alcohol in the front seat at all. The only exception to this is if you’re driving a pickup truck that lacks a backseat or indoor cargo area, or lock box. It doesn’t matter if the container is sealed or not, it can’t be within reach of the driver.

It’s worth noting, that it’s never legal to drive with a container that contains booze and is unsealed...

What is Probation Anyways?

What is Probation Anyways?

No one likes getting in trouble. We were all kids once, and experienced the feeling of disappointment from a parent. Then you try to move on, but you siblings or friends like to remind you of that one mistake you made 5 years ago. That makes it worse. Being reminded constantly of the mistake doesn’t make anyone feel better, but at least it’s better than being in jail.

Probation is what you’re stuck with after being released from jail. Probation is by definition, the release of an offender from detention, subject to a period of good behavior under supervision. Just think about it as a big brother or sister watchingover you after making a mistake. They’re there to make sure you don’t end up making any more mistakes. Though that may be daunting, at least it’s not jail...

The Credibility of Online Reviews

Online reviews in Santa Clarita

Just because someone says something on the internet, does not mean that it is true. Anyone can say whatever they want on the internet, and for many people, there will be no repercussions. Most of the internet is in its Wild West stages. This means there are not many laws governing what can and can’t be done. The few laws that do exist, can be hard to regulate and enforce due to the large scale of the task.

This all makes it possible for people to post fake reviews on products or services. People who are unhappy with a company for whatever reason, will often leave numerous bad reviews to try and harm the company’s reputation. In some cases, this person was never even a customer or client of the company, they just dislike the company for some reason.

One of the worst kinds of fake rev...
