Why Checkpoints Are a Good Thing for You – The Drunk Driver

Memorial Day is a day when we honor and remember those who have died while serving our country. Here in Southern California, Memorial Day is more popular for bringing a three-day weekend for many students and professionals, and because it is nice and sunny out by this time of year. Memorial Day Weekend becomes a 3-day party and alcohol-heavy weekend immediately after any solemn honoring of course. Californians are not that ungrateful.

Our team at Rialto Bail Bond Store would like to remind you all to make wise decisions this Memorial Day Weekend . Whether you are partying out, or partying in, watch your alcohol intake, as well as that of your friends and family members. Do not drink and drive. The police are definitely going to have more checkpoints this Memorial Day Weekend than any other weekend.

Any drivers who happen upon a checkpoint will be directed to the side of the road. The officer will likely ask where you are coming from, where you are going, if you have been drinking, and how much. You may be asked to take a sobriety test of some sort. Best case scenario: the officer will let you drive on to your destination after a very brief stop. Worst case scenario: you will be detained until you sober up. It might be discouraging, but think of it like this. This worst case scenario at the checkpoint is way better than the worst case scenario of all: getting into a fatal accident.

No matter what your plans are for Memorial Day Weekend , please have fun and be safe. We hope we do not get a call from you, but if we do, Rialto Bail Bond Store will act quickly to help bail you out of jail. We have a team standing by 24/7, ready to answer your all of your questions; we will not let you down!

Skate Away from the Freeway Challenge

rialto-bail-bonds-855

Have you heard of the freeway challenge in California? This new challenge that is happening in Los Angeles has skateboarders riding their boards on freeways! Insane to you and us, but apparently less so for these skateboarders.

Usually when the traffic is slow, a skateboarder will get out on the freeway to skate and do some tricks. A friend will be taking a video and then it will be uploaded onto social media with the hashtag, #freewaychallenge. Clearly, this is dangerous for everyone on the road and the CHP is looking to use social media to track down some of these violators, subjecting them to hefty fines. A stunt like this can easily go terribly wrong with people getting injured and arrested.

    The two key takeaways from this:

  1. Do not get involved with this challenge. You can face some unfavorable consequences.
  2. Watch what you post on social media. You could incriminate yourself.

In any instance where you, or someone you love, needs to get a bail bond, please contact Rialto Bail Bond Store. This bail bond team serves all of California and is ready to help get you or your loved one out of jail ASAP!
