4th of July Party Planning

california bail bonds

Usually we go out to the big fireworks show on July 4th and watch the professionals light up the night sky for us. This year however, we decided to host our own party at home, inviting friends and family over to join in on the fun. We have started the party planning and were not too surprised to learn the following rules and regulations when it comes to purchasing and owning fireworks.

  • Only fireworks categorized as “Safe and Sane” can be purchased by the public. Safe and Sane fireworks are small sparklers and fuses, for example.
  • “Dangerous” fireworks are most fireworks like torpedoes, rockets, and large sparklers and these are not allowed to be sold to the public.
  • Safe and Sane fireworks may only be purchased between noon on June 28th and noon on July 6th. They may not be purchased at any other time of the year.
  • Safe and Sane fireworks may only be purchased from state-licensed retailers.
  • You must be at least 16 years old to purchase Safe and Sane fireworks.
  • Safe and Sane fireworks must not be played with and set off within distance of flammable material and other individuals. This could be disastrous.

We have come to accept that no one can ever set off their own big fireworks show because they are dangerous. Only professionals with a special license can do so and we are perfectly content with having only Safe and Sane fireworks.

If you are hosting your own 4th of July party, please make sure you have the legal fireworks and please use them safely and wisely. The last thing anyone wants is to end up in the hospital or in jail. However, do know that if someone in your party gets arrested, someone from our California Bail Bond Store team will leave our party immediately and to help you right away.

We want to help you bail your loved one out of jail ASAP. We can be reached 24/7 online or at 877-793-2245. Someone is always ready to help.

4th of July Travel Tips

california bail bonds

Perhaps the best thing about 4th of July this year is that it falls on a Monday, which means it is a 3-day weekend. This allows many people to go out of town and celebrate. However, before you take off, we recommend you plan out your itinerary and do some research, not on where to go and what to eat, but on the laws of what you can and cannot do.

We recommend looking up driving, drinking, and most importantly for this July 4 weekend; fireworks laws. For example, in California, it is legal to turn right on red, but illegal in other states. In California, the legal BAC is 0.08%; the legal limit in other states may be higher or lower. In California, many parks and beaches do not allow open alcohol containers, which may be different for other states. In California, fireworks are categorized as either Dangerous, illegal for the public to purchase and use, or Safe and Sane, legal for the public to purchase and use. In other states, maybe all fireworks are illegal, no exceptions.

It is very important to read up on some of the laws of where you are going because you certainly do not want to be arrested out-of-state. This not only ruins your weekend, but it also creates a huge hassle for having to deal with the situation later on.

If you are staying right at home this July 4th and instead have friends and family coming from out-of-town, make sure to keep them in check and keep an eye on them. They too should read up on our laws here, or you should inform them; like it’s illegal to drive and be on the phone at the same time. Overall, we want as few people in trouble as possible.

However, if something goes wrong and someone winds up in a California jail, you can count on California Bail Bond Store to help bail them out of jail. Do not worry about it being 4th of July, California Bail Bond Store is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Your loved one will be bailed out of jail in no time.

  • “Dangerous Fireworks” are 100% illegal for the public to sell, purchase, and set off. Dangerous Fireworks include rockets, sparklers longer than 10 inches, torpedoes, roman candles, firecrackers, and more. Almost all fireworks, especially the ones that create a big boom in the sky. Dangerous Fireworks may only be sold to, purchased by, and set off by licensed professionals who organize the big, official fireworks show.
  • “Safe and Sane Fireworks” are the select few fireworks that the public may sell, purchase, and set off. These are smaller grade and as the name says, safer.
  • Safe and Sane Fireworks may only be sold between noon on June 28 and noon on July 6 each year through state-licensed retailers. The licenses automatically expire at noon on July 6, so they must be renewed the following year by June 15.
  • One must be at least 16 years old in order to purchase Safe and Sane Fireworks.
  • Fireworks may not be set off within 100 feet of gasoline or other flammable liquid. Obviously, it also may not be set off where it is likely to injure another person.

california bail bonds

Prepping for your 4th of July should take more effort than you think. You have already planned who you are hanging out with, where you will be, and what you are grubbing on, but do not forget about:

  • Planning transportation – Do not drink and drive. Use Uber, Lyft, or designate a sober driver. Remember the legal alcohol limit in California is 0.08% but even if you are under that, it is best not to get behind the wheel anyway.
  • Considering checkpoints – It is a 3-day weekend that will involve more alcohol for most people. There will be more checkpoints.
  • Having the right fireworks – if you are going to be at home and want to have your own small fireworks, fine, but make sure they are certified Safe and Sane fireworks, not Dangerous fireworks. Make sure you purchase or obtain them legally from a licensed seller. It is illegal for individuals to set off the large fireworks.
  • If you and your group of friends are prone to being on the more rebellious side, or often get very drunk, we also urge you to have our contact information on hand. We are California Bail Bond Store, a team of bail bonds professionals. We can bail people out of any jail in California at any time of the day, any day of year, even on July 4th.
