Crosswalk Safety in California


Walking to work means you don’t have to worry about getting caught in a traffic jam. It’s a great way to build some stamina while also burning a few calories. It also provides you with the means to start slowing down and develop a connection with the world you live in.

Just don’t think that walking to work is safer than driving yourself. A surprising number of California pedestrians are killed annually. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, there were 972 pedestrian deaths in 2019. Approximately 22% of fatal traffic episodes in California involve a pedestrian. These alarming statistics prompted California lawmakers to pass the “Right-of-Way at Crosswalks” law.

The Right-of-Way law is written up in Code, Section 21950(a). When you read through the formal law, you’ll learn that drivers are legally required to yield to a pedestrian who is strolling through a crosswalk. The law requires that drivers yield to the pedestrian in both marked and unmarked crosswalks. The implementation of the law also requires that drivers use a little additional care when approaching a crosswalk and be on the lookout for pedestrians who may be about to step onto the street. If a pedestrian is stepping onto the street, the driver will have to stop to allow the pedestrian to safely cross the road.

Another issue that’s dealt with in the Right-of-Way law is passing while driving through a crosswalk. Passing while driving through a crosswalk is dangerous for several reasons, including that the passing driver may not see a pedestrian until it’s too late.

The interesting thing about California’s Right-of-Way law is that it’s designed to protect the rights of both pedestrians and drivers. Drivers do have the right away at crosswalks that are controlled with signals, provided the signal indicates that the driver can go. In this situation, the pedestrians are supposed to yield for drivers. However, drivers do have to wait for slow-moving pedestrians who may be struggling to reach the opposite side in a timely fashion, and the driver must be prepared to take safe and evasive action if a distracted pedestrian fails to notice the sign.

Drivers who are caught failing to adhere to California’s Right-of-Way law will likely receive a traffic citation which will involve a steep fine, points, and the possibility of having the state consider revoking their driving privileges.


Think Before Posting those Vacation Photos


One of the best things about social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter is the ability to quickly post all of your photos so that your friends and family can admire them.

Those same pictures can also make you an easy and attractive target to anyone who is looking for a home to break into.

The problem with posting vacation pictures on your social media account is that if you’re posting those pictures while you’re still on vacation, you are literally telling any would-be burglar that your house is standing empty. This is especially true if you happen to answer a question about how long you’re going to be gone.

Don’t assume that posting vacation pictures is the only way you can get into trouble. The same is true if you make a comment about waiting for a flight, discuss an out-of-town business trip, or even a routine lunch date. Most importantly, don’t take advantage of the option some social media sites provide allow you to share your precise location with all of your friends and family.

Most people feel comfortable sharing vacation photos on social media accounts because they reason that they are all friends and that their friends would never steal from them. But take a moment to go through your current friend’s list. How many of those people do you really know and how many are people who you’ve simply met a few times at different events or through other friends?

The first thing you should do is change your account settings so that the only people who can see your posts are your friends and family. If you also use social media for a business, then create a separate account for your business and make sure you don’t include any of your travel plans on it.

The next thing you need to do is refrain from sharing information about vacation plans, weekend getaways, and more on social media. When it comes to posting the pictures, wait until you get home. When you do decide it’s time to post those holiday snaps, make it very clear that you’re already home and that life has returned to normal.

Don’t assume that just because you’re not actively posting your vacation photos while you’re away from home that you don’t have to worry. Make it very clear to anyone you’re traveling with that you don’t want to be tagged in any of their vacation photos.

Do Not Forget – Your Parents will Always Support You

Inglewood Bail Bond Store

18 is the minimum age to be sent to jail, arrested juveniles are released back to their parents, but there is never a maximum age to which you cannot rely on your parents’ help any longer. Even if in 20 years you are arrested for committing a crime, you can and should call up your parents, fill them in on the unfortunate recent events, and seek their support.

Their support can just be emotional support, but in all likelihood, it will be so much more than that. After all, they are your parents and you are their child. It is their nature to do all they can to protect you, especially during such a difficult time.

Get past the embarrassment and shame of telling your parents you have been arrested. Yes, there will definitely be disappointment, but their love and support will overpower that feeling. They know you did not deliberately set out to be arrested. They know you are a good person and you just had a very bad day where things went awfully wrong. Your arrest is not a reflection of the person you truly are. They know that, so turn to them for help.

In addition to your parents, you would have the Inglewood Bail Bond Store team on your side as well. We can bail you out of jail with a bail bond that costs only 10% of your full bail amount. Like your parents, we will be with you through the whole bail process so it is efficient, fast, and problem-free.

If and when you need our bail bond services, call us at 323-357-0575 or chat us up online. We are available for you 24/7.

Safety Tips For El Nino


Californians, the much anticipated and historic El Nino is here and we want to make sure you all are keeping yourselves safe out when outdoors. Follow these tips for wet and windy weather safety and you’ll avoid accidents, police officers, tickets, and more unwanted ordeals:

  • Avoid the outdoors during the heaviest rains as much as possible.
  • Avoid areas susceptible to sudden and quick flooding. Get yourself to high ground.
  • Avoid rushing water.
  • Avoid downed electrical and power lines.
  • Keep emergency kits in your vehicle and your home. Kits should have items like water, flashlights, gloves, etc.
  • Drive slower and always use your signal lights.
  • Turn headlights on when windshield wipers are in use.
  • If you are hydroplaning, take your foot off the gas but do not brake. Keep control of your steering wheel and your car will gradually slow down and gain its traction again.

Other things you ought to do before the storm blows in: get your tires, car lights, and windshield wipers checked to make sure everything is good and ready. Replace anything that needs replacing.

It’s not like El Nino is going to cause a huge disaster, but it is rain and wind we are not used to every year. It’s wisest to be as safe and prepared as possible.

If you run into any trouble and end up behind bars for whatever reason, get a bail bond from Inglewood Bail Bond Store Services right now!

What To Look For When Hiring A Lawyer


If you’re ever in need of a lawyer, you need to find one who is the right fit for your case. You can’t just hire any lawyer to defend you because not all are trained and experienced for every work. You need someone whose expertise can benefit you as best as possible.

You should start by asking your inner circle of confidants for any recommendations, if possible. Once you find potentials whether through friends or from independent research, read up where they received their education and how they’ve performed in previous experience. Find some reviews former clients have left. This can be very insightful. Get the rates and find out exactly how they will charge and when you will pay (you might consider getting this in writing too in case they try to hustle you later on). Finally, just get a good read from them based on how they interact with you, how interested they are in helping you out. For anyone who comes off as uninterested, it may be a good idea to cross them off the list.

Those are key considerations to look for and consider when needing to hire a lawyer. Unfortunately we at Inglewood Bail Bond Store Services cannot refer you to anyone but we wish you the best and do hope you find the best fitting lawyer. Remember, our team is always here for bail bond assistance, now or in the future; for you or for another.

‘Reasonable Suspicion’ And ‘Probable Cause’ Are Not Quite The Same Thing


It’s important for you, as a citizen, to understand the difference between “reasonable suspicion” and “probable cause”. For you, it’s so you know your rights and protections. For the police, it’s what they rely on when deciding to make an arrest, conduct a search, for question a person.

Reasonable suspicion is when officers have the reason to believe that an individual they choose to stop, briefly detain, and/ or question is involved in some criminal activity. Their reason to believe this is developed from their professional training and experience.

Probable cause is when officers have sufficient evidence, facts, and/ or circumstances that leads them to believe that the person of interest is the correct person of interest. Probable cause can give officers the right to search and/ or seize evidence or make an arrest. An officer must have probable cause to secure a search warrant.

Sometimes, the officers are wronged in their arrests and searches. It’s to your benefit that you know when the officers are acting above their authority. You can argue in court. You must know your rights and protect yourself. If you are arrested, you’re not alone in your fight (whether you are truly innocent or not). Inglewood Bail Bond Store Services can help with bail. We believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty and since you (or your loved one) has not been found guilty, please do contact us for bail help.

That $8 Shot Is Going To End Up Costing You Thousands


Consider this before you even start drinking tonight: that last $8 shot that you’re half hesitant on taking could end up costing you thousands. It could be the few ounces of alcohol that tips you past the legal BAC limit, which for California, is 0.08%. It could be the drink that causes you be pulled over and arrested, or even worse – get into a serious accident, and arrested. This is what is going to make your night turn from fun to a complete disaster.

    We have a few tips:

  1. Say “NO” to too much alcohol. By now you know your limits.
  2. Designate a sober driver in the group.
  3. Call a cab or ride share service to drive everyone. Or call a friend or family member who is sober at home to come get you.
  4. Do not let inebriated pals drive home.
  5. Drink water and make sure to feed your inebriated friends to help soak up some of that alcohol. This also causes you to spend more time in one place, meaning you can sober up a bit too.

The goal, obviously, is to avoid any major incidents and (knock on wood) accidents and (knock on wood again) casualties. Once you’re 100% sober and you’ve come to fully realize the damages you cause while drunk is a pain we hate to see, and we see it all too often for those we bail out of jail. We hope this does not happen to you too, but if it does you can rely on Inglewood Bail Bond Store Services to bail you to of jail too. You have plenty of consequences to face and people to apologize to.

Please call us at 323-357-0575 or go to Lynwood Bail Bond Store.

We will support you through this whole process!

Getting A Bail Bond Should Never Be An Invasion Of Privacy


When you’re getting a bail bond, you should never feel like your privacy is being invaded. Yes, you will have to inform the bail agency of some personal information, but that will all be kept confidential. A bail company like Inglewood Bail Bond Store Services will never reveal this to others who are not in the need-to-know circle. We will always keep, this, the arrest, and any bail situation on “the hush”. However, you are still responsible for getting the defendant to court, as the trust is on you.

Never approach a bail bond company who will do anything extreme. Yes, there are bail bond companies who treat their clients with less respect and privacy than necessary, like placing a GPS tracker on client’s families. They watch where you’re going, what you’re doing, 24/7. On top of that, there are extra fees needed to pay for such tracker! Why? If you had the option, would you go with a bail company who asks for more money to invade your privacy? This is what to look for in a bail company:

  • Reliability.
  • Respect.
  • Privacy and confidentiality.
  • Quick service.
  • Friendly and approachable agents.
  • A great track record of satisfied clients.
  • A low premium (10-15%), and zero hidden fees.

There are plenty of bail bond companies like this, including the 28 year old Inglewood Bail Bond Store Services that has more satisfied customers than most others.

Defendants Are Capable Of Being Good People


It’s quite important to remember that no one is ever perfect. Everyone makes mistakes and has flaws, but everyone is very capable of improving themselves. This includes people who have had or are having brushes with the law.

Someone you might know and love dearly may be arrested one day. Are they a bad person? Not necessarily. To you, they most likely had a minor incident that everyone will forget about in due time. It’s nothing that a little emotional and financial support and time cannot fix.

They’re capable of improving themselves after this incident and it’s great for you to help them in any possible. A person’s ability to grow and develop positively does in some ways depend on the people who are rooting for them. They need this positive energy and encouragement to feed off of. You won’t find your time wasted, we promise you.

At the very least, your emotional support is needed. If you’re able to provide financially too, that would also be a relief for your loved one. But, we understand if that is not possible for you.

Please contact Inglewood Bail Bond Store Services at Lynwood Bail Bond Store or call 323-357-0575 today.

We reduce the amount of bail money due by providing bail bonds to get defendants out of jail. If the defendant wishes to pay the court directly and not work with a third party bail agency, he or she would need to pay 100% of the bail before he or she is released from jail. But by going the bail agency route, the defendant can pay the agency 10-15% of the bail over a set period of time. Additionally, he or she would be released before the entire amount is paid off. Clearly, the more affordable route out of jail is the bail bond route.
