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.

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...

Texting and Driving? Too Much, New Laws

call-santa-clarita-bailbonds

Let us be real, these days, texting and driving is no longer texting and driving. It is more like social media-ing and driving, or navigating maps and driving because smart phones have come so far in just a few years. This has caused driving and cell phone laws to be expanded, starting this year.

Starting this year, cell phones must be mounted to the dash, the lower left or upper left corner of the windshield, if the driver wishes to use it while driving. With it mounted, the driver may make one single tap or swipe on the phone.

Grey’s Anatomy recently aired an episode where a young boy accidentally shot his friend because the two found a gun in the home; the gun belonged to one of the parents. No one ever intended any harm, but the gun was poorly stored at home. This episode prompted us to highlight California’s gun storage laws, laws that donot get enough attention as do other gun-related laws.

California gun owners must keep their firearms locked away in a safe and secure place where others, especially children, cannot get to it. Though it is not a law, but rather a safety measure, gun owners are also encouraged to remove all ammo from the gun. If a loaded gun is kept in an unlocked dresser that any youth or child can access, then the owner is committing criminal storage of a firearm...
