We Don’t Need Collateral at Lynwood Bail Bonds

 

Paying for expensive things is tough enough on its own without additional stress being piled on. That is exactly what collateral does for buyers, it makes a purchase, or expense, more stressful. Not only does the person have to worry about making payments on time, they have the constant threat of losing something valuable of theirs if they fail to make a payment. Nobody wants that.

Collateral for big expenses, such as bail, have to have the same value as whatever money is owed. When the money owed is several thousands of dollars, the collateral is typically a house or car. Those are both items that people cannot afford to lose because they missed one payment. Unfortunately, many bail bond companies require their clients to post collateral.

At Lynwood Bail Bonds, we know how stressful worrying about collateral can be, which is why we don’t require it on most of our bonds. We prefer to trust our clients. All we need on most bonds is the signature of a working co-signer. As long as we have that, we have faith that our clients will make their payments on time.

On top of that, we at Lynwood Bail Bonds are more understanding with our clients and their payments in general. We know that things changes. Payments that might have been affordable a month ago may no longer be within reach. If that happens, our clients can talk to their bail agent before the payment is due, to see about changing their monthly payments.

Dealing with the arrest of a loved one can be a stressful time. At Lynwood Bail Bonds, we want to reduce that stress as much as possible.

Do You Need a Warrant Check in California?

Do You Need a Warrant Check in California?

Do You Need a Warrant Check in California?

 

Bailing someone out of jail is no fun, but here at Lynwood Bail Bonds we do everything that we can to help you. We will always help you get your loved ones out of jail, but that is not all that we do here. We also provide warrant checks for clients who need them. This way, if someone thinks there might be a warrant out for their arrest, they can find out for sure.

When a warrant is issued for a person’s arrest, no one notifies the person in question. If the police could find the person, then they would arrest him or her. If a person suspects that there may be a warrant out for their arrest, they usually have to go to the police station to see. If they do have a warrant, then they are arrested then and there, which isn’t optimal.

No one wants to get arrested, but if someone were to get arrested, they’d probably prefer to prepare for it first. Lynwood Bail Bonds lets you do that. When we perform a warrant check, if we find a warrant, we may be able to prepare a bail bond before the person turns themselves in, in some instances. This way, a person only stays in jail as long as it takes for them to be booked in, then they are bailed out.

While not all California counties allow us to perform warrant checks, the following do:

  • Contra Costa
  • Fresno
  • Kern
  • Riverside
  • Sacramento
  • San Bernardino
  • Stanislaus
  • Tulare

And sometimes:

  • Kings
  • San Juaquin

Even if we are unable to perform a warrant check for you, we can still get started on some of the bail paperwork. This can help expedite the bail process once a person is arrested, thereby shortening their stay behind bars.

When a person needs bail help, they should always contact Lynwood Bail Bonds. When a person thinks there might be a warrant out for their arrest, they can contact Lynwood Bail Bonds for help with that as well.

Yes, Driving Under the Influence Is a Terrible Idea

Yes, Driving Under the Influence Is a Terrible Idea

Yes, Driving Under the Influence Is a Terrible Idea

 

Most people would agree that getting into a vehicle accident would be horrible. After all, car collisions can be catastrophic and even fatal. However, despite the fact that no one wants to get into an accident, there are some people out there who participate in risky behavior that increases the chances of an accident occurring.

One of the easiest instances to avoid, yet is still one of the most common, is drunk driving. Driving while intoxicated, or high on marijuana and other drugs, is a terrible idea. When a person is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, not only are they less in control of their bodies, their thinking is impaired as well. This can lead to risky behavior that can easily cause an accident. That is why driving under the influence is illegal everywhere in the country, including California.

 Drunk Driving Statistics

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) roughly 10,500 people died due to alcohol impaired driving in 2016. This amounted to just over 25% of all traffic related deaths in the United States. In 2016, over 1 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), which is about 1% of all self-reported incidents of drunk driving in the US.

The CDC also reports that drugs are involved in roughly 16% of motor vehicle accidents. They also report that incidents of marijuana usage and driving are increasing with each year. 13% percent of nighttime and weekend drivers have marijuana in their systems.

The CDC has also found that drivers involved in alcohol-related fatal crashes were 4.5 times more likely to have prior DUI’s on their record than drivers with no alcohol in their systems.

 The Law Here in California

Due to the increased risk factors associated with driving under the influence, there are federal laws and states laws all over the country that criminalize the act. Here in California, Vehicle Code (VC) 23152 makes it illegal to drive a vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

An important note is that according to this law, drugs are any intoxicating substance. This means that drugs can be anything from marijuana to prescription medicine. Basically, if something makes a person loopy or inebriated, they should not be driving with that substance in their system.

DUI is typically a misdemeanor charge, unless a person has more than four DUI charges against them in a 10 year period or the accident hurt/killed someone.

Misdemeanor penalties for a DUI can include:

  • Informal probation.
  • Maximum of 1 year in jail.
  • A base fine of no more than $1,000.
  • A suspended driver’s license.
  • DUI school.
  • Victim restitutions.
  • Community service.
  • AA/NA meetings.
  • Impounded vehicle.
  • Instillation of a breathalyzer ignition system.

Felony charges of DUI can include:

  • Formal probation.
  • Prison time anywhere from 1 year to life.
  • Base fine of no more than $5,000.
  • DUI school.
  • Victim restitution.
  • Community service.
  • AA/NA meetings.
  • Impounded vehicle.
  • Instillation of a breathalyzer ignition system.

Aside from the above, regardless of charges, a drunk driving charge or accident can greatly increase insurance rates for a driver as well.

 Never Drink and Drive

There is no excuse for driving under the influence, especially with today’s modern technology. Thanks to apps like Lyft and Uber, there is always a way for a person to get a ride home. Failing that, there is always public transportation such as buses and taxis. Lastly, a person can typically call family or friends for a ride. Most people would rather be woken up in the middle of the night by a drunk friend asking for a ride rather than by an officer telling them their loved one had an accident while driving drunk.

If a person is at home and finds themselves craving a snack, they don’t have to go out to get pick one up. Many restaurants deliver, and the ones that don’t, can still offer delivery through apps such as Grubhub and Uber Eats. Even Amazon can make quick deliveries of some items in big cities.

All of this amounts to the fact that no one should ever get behind the wheel while intoxicated due to alcohol or drugs. Doing so would not only risk the driver’s life, but the lives of any passengers, as well as the lives of passing drivers and pedestrians. Don’t ever put so many people at risk. Stay safe and let someone else drive after having a few beers.


Is It Too Hot for Your Dog?

Is It Too Hot for Your Dog?

Is It Too Hot for Your Dog?

 

As the weather warms up, people begin to venture outside more and more. At least until it becomes too hot, then people tend to hide out indoors. Everyone likes warm weather because it allows them to go outside. However, if things warms up too much, people would rather avoid the heat.

Still, some people don’t mind the heat, and will continue with their outdoor activities regardless of the temperatures. Some of these people will even take their dogs with them. After all, dogs love to go on adventures too, especially if their human is involved. However, taking a dog out for a walk, or even a game of fetch, in this heat can be dangerous for the furry creature.

 How Do Dogs Cool Off?

It is obvious to see that dogs and humans are not the same. We are two very different creatures. This becomes especially evident when it comes to how dogs cool off. Dogs mainly cool themselves off through panting. So when a dog warms up, it tends to pant in order to help cool itself off. They also have increased blood flow near the surface of their ears and face, which allows the body heat to be absorbed by outside air.

When it comes to what is too warm for a dog, just consider all of the fur on the pooch. The furrier a dog, the warmer they will get. This means that fluffy dogs don’t really appreciate high temperatures. This is where owners can inadvertently get their dog into trouble by taking it on walks during the day.

If the temperature is too hot for a person, it is safe to assume it is too hot for the dog as well. Dogs are just as susceptible to heatstroke as humans, if not more so due to all of their fur. A dog can succumb to heat stroke in just 15 minutes, which does not leave much time for any sort of emergency personnel to provide aid. This means that the best way to save a dog from heatstroke is to prevent it from ever getting heatstroke in the first place.

 Caring for Dogs in Hot Weather

Malibu Search and Rescue has needed to rescue three dogs in the last two months. Unfortunately, one dog succumbed to heat stroke before rescuers could even arrive on the trail where the dog and its owner were hiking. This is a solemn reminder to all pet owners to know their dog’s limits and know the warning signs.

One of the biggest warning signs of heatstroke in a dog is rapid, shallow breathing.

In order to avoid heatstroke, dog owners should limit walks to early mornings and late evenings when temperatures are more bearable. When on walks, owners should bring plenty of water and ensure their pup stays hydrated. It is also a good idea to check how warm the ground is. If the ground is too warm to keep the back of your hand on, then it is too hot for a dog’s paws.

 Take Care of the Pup

Going on a hike may be fun, and even more so with a furry companion, but as summer bears down on California, it may be best to leave the pooch behind. At the very least, a dog owner could schedule their hikes to be at cooler times. Everyone would appreciate that.

If a person ever is out walking, or hiking, with their dog, and they suspect that their dog may be suffering from heatstroke, they should call emergency services. Help will get their as quickly as possible to administer aid, regardless of the fact that the victim is a dog. It is also important to note that unless abuse is determine to be intentional, owners are not charged with animal abuse.

The Law That Everyone Has Broken at Least Once

The Law That Everyone Has Broken at Least Once

The Law That Everyone Has Broken at Least Once

 

With the literal thousands of different laws within the US, and even California alone, it is nearly impossible to follow all of them all of the time. Most of the time, people break laws not because they meant to, but because they simply didn’t know that doing that action was illegal. However, there are some instances when everyday people purposefully break the law.

When regular people break a law, it usually is due to the fact that they feel the law is pointless, or that it shouldn’t apply to them. Many people may argue that they don’t break a law, however there is one type of law that pretty much everyone is guilty of breaking from time to time. In fact it is typically broken several thousands of times a day. This law would be speed limits.

 Everyone Speeds at Some Point

Every driver everywhere knows what speed limits are. Every single road in the US has an assigned maximum speed at which drivers could drive and still remain safe. This limit not only keeps the driver safe from himself, but also from other drivers, and anyone else who may be using the road.

Typically, people speed either when they are rushing to get somewhere, or aren’t paying attention to their speed. Both instances can be equally dangerous. In these instances, the driver drives their vehicle faster than the posted safe speed limit for that stretch of road. This may get the person to their destination faster, but it does so at a cost.

The problem with speeding is that it does not just endanger the driver in question. It also endangers every single human being that they pass on the road. All it takes to cause an accident, is one tiny mistake. After all, the faster a vehicle is traveling, the easier it is for that vehicle to lose control and cause an accident, and the more deadly the consequences of that accident.

 Consequences of Speeding in California

Speeding has several different consequences depending on how the person is caught. If they are pulled over by a law enforcement officer for speeding, than the consequences will come in the form of a speeding ticket. Here in California, this means that:

  • A fine of $360 – $400 for speeds of 15 -20 MPH over the posted limit.
  • A fine of $480 – $550 for speeds of 26+ MPH over the posted limit.
  • Receiving points on a driver’s license. Too many points within a short amount of time can lead to a suspended or revoked license.
  • Increased insurance rates.

This is the better outcome for speeding drivers. In that scenario, nobody gets hurt. That is not the case for the other possible outcome for speeding, getting into an accident. In this outcome, a driver can face:

  • Varying criminal charges depending on the severity of the accident.
  • Points on the driver’s license.
  • Drastically increased insurance rates.
  • Possible court fees.
  • Paying restitutions to victims of the accident.

In the event of an accident, a speeding driver could be held responsible for another person’s injuries, or death. That is something that no one wants on their conscience, especially for something as meaningless as speeding.

 Just Follow the Speed Limit

Speeding may seem like a great way to get to a destination on time, or small mistake made when not paying attention, but it is really much worse than that. Speeding is illegal, and that means that anytime a person speeds, they are breaking the law. This means thousands of drivers break the law every single day, and that is just looking at California.

Increasing the speed of a vehicle increases the chances of an accident. One small slip up is all it takes for a driver to end up in a bad way. It is best for everyone to simply follow the posted speed limits.

Everyone has seen their fair share of crazy drivers out there doing whatever they can to get to their destination as quickly as possible.

What are some of the craziest things you’ve seen other drivers do? Tell us about it in the comments down below.


Strange Laws from Across the US

Strange Laws from Across the US

Strange Laws from Across the US

 

When people think about laws, they typically think of carefully crafted rules meant to keep people safe or in line. While most laws could safely fit into that category, not all of them do. Lawmakers are people just like everyone else, which means they are prone to bad ideas just as much as everyone else is. This is how crazy and weird laws end up in existence.

It is no secret that the state of California has its fair share of odd laws. After all, who would think guaranteeing sunshine to the masses or forbidding wild animals from mating in certain areas would be a good idea. Still, the state of California is not the only one with strange laws. Every single state in the Union has its own odd laws that make people scratch their heads.

 States and Their Odd Laws

No matter which state a person decides to look at, they will be sure to find at least a few strange laws here and there. In fact, there are entire websites out there that are dedicated finding the oddest laws in the country. These websites are often fun to scroll through for a good laugh. Some of the gems that can be found include:

  • In Alaska, it is an offense to push a live moose out of a moving aircraft.
  • Also from Alaska, waking a sleeping bear for the sole purpose of taking its picture is prohibited.
  • In Texas, it is illegal to take more than 3 sips of beer at a time while standing.
  • It is illegal to milk another person’s cow in Texas.
  • In Arizona, a person is only allowed to defend themselves from an attacker with the same kind of weapon that the attacker has.
  • Any misdemeanor committed in Arizona while wearing a red mask will be considered a felony.
  • Idiots may not vote in New Mexico.
  • In Las Cruces, New Mexico, it is against the law to walk down Main Street while carrying a lunchbox.
  • In Michigan, a woman may not cut her own hair without her husband’s permission.
  • Also from Michigan, it is legal for a robber to file a lawsuit against the owner of the house they robbed if they got hurt during the act.
  • It is against the law to pronounce Arkansas incorrectly in Arkansas.
  • The Arkansas River is prohibited from rising higher than the Main Street Bridge in Little Rock.
  • In New York, it is illegal for women on the street to wear “body hugging clothing” while on the street, however, women may go topless in public provided it is not being used as a business.
  • A fine of $25 can be levied for flirting in New York.
  • Also from New York, the penalty for jumping off of a building is death.

 These Laws Can’t Be Taken Seriously

As one can see, there are strange laws all over the country. No state is perfect with all of their laws. Some of the odd laws are clearly products of their time, while others just leave a person scratching their head. After all, how can some of the above laws ever be enforced? Who is going to tell a river that it has too much water flowing through it, and who expects the river to care?

Regardless of how these laws came into being, they do exist. Luckily, no one is ever really going to get fined or arrested for most of these acts.

What do you think is the weirdest law on this list? What is the strangest law that you have ever heard of? Tell us about it in the comments down below.
