Helpful Tips For Driving When It’s Raining

riverside-county-bail-bonds-561

Here, in Southern California, we may not see too many rainy days, even with a visit from “El Nino”, but we mustn’t forget that there are other parts of our golden state, particularly in Northern California, which sees much more rain throughout the year. In addition to all of the rain, there’s wind accompanied by fog, which make driving conditions much more dangerous. Regardless of whether it’s raining or not, Riverside County Bail Bond Store is here to offer some very helpful ‘wet-weather’ driving tips:

  • Turn On Headlights – This allows you to see in front of you better, as well as other drivers to see you better. And even if it’s sunny while raining, it’s the law to have those headlights on.
  • Turn Off Cruise Control – Despite being called “cruise control,” it can be more difficult to gain control of your car again if you end up hydroplaning while the car is in cruise control mode.
  • Hydroplaning Hazards – if you feel your car hydroplaning (when your tires lose traction of the road and only feels the water – this can happen with at least 1/12th of an inch of water), slowly take your foot off the gas and maintain control with your steering wheel. Do not slam on the brakes.
  • Drive Slower – Remember visibility may be low, so it will be harder to see people and objects.
  • Check Your Tires – If you’ve got pretty worn out tires, you’re more susceptible to hydroplaning and skidding in the rain because you don’t have optimum tread on your tires for traction.
  • Check Your Car Lights – Get any broken or dim headlights, tail lights, brake lights, and signal lights fixed. Not only is having non-functioning lights putting you at risk, it’s also against the law and you can get a ticket.
  • Always Remain Alert – Remember, you may trust yourself to be a safe driver, but you can never know what other drivers are going to be like. Drive defensively.

Check the weather and traffic conditions before you leave your house and always allow yourself extra time to get to your destination when it’s raining. Also, make sure to have a fully charged phone by your side! You never know when it might come in handy.

It’s not uncommon for people to be arrested for poor and reckless driving when it comes to bad weather conditions. It’s the impatient people who speed through the slow-moving traffic when it rains that wind up getting into accidents. Riverside County Bail Bond Store has helped bail these people out of jail and if this ends up to be your predicament as well, we will be there to bail you out of jail, no matter where you are in California. Give us a call immediately and we will stop at nothing to help your situation. We will not let you down!

California’s Traffic Amnesty Program Is Better Than An Arrest

riverside-county-bail-bonds-560

California’s traffic ticket and infraction Amnesty program is in full swing and if you don’t know what this is, you might want to because it could apply to you, in a good way. This information could prove to be useful to you in regards to any unpaid parking tickets you might have. The Amnesty program provides relief to some individuals who have certain outstanding unpaid traffic tickets. The amount due can be lowered, making it easier for them to finally be paid off.

    To qualify for this program:

  • Tickets must have originally been due by January 1, 2013; or if the individual has a suspended license and they are continuously making payments on the ticket.
  • Tickets must not be for parking violations, reckless driving, or DUI offenses.

To further determine if a person is qualified to participate in this program, they can contact the superior court in the area where they were served the ticket. There is a fee to apply, but truthfully, after calculating how much less a person has to pay versus when they were originally violated, the fee ultimately comes out to be cheaper.

Getting into this Amnesty program is much better than being served an arrest warrant for unpaid tickets, wouldn’t you agree?

For those who do not qualify for the Amnesty program, do not hesitate to get those tickets paid because the police are waiting and watching to arrest people. Riverside County Bail Bond Store will be here to help anyone bail out of jail; however, we’d rather not have to do that. Nonetheless, if you need a professional bail agent, contact Riverside County Bail Bond Store today!

What Is A “Bounty Hunter?”

perris-bail-bonds-564

For some reason, the “bounty hunters” only sound like they’re in the movies or on television shows. It’s how they’re depicted in pop culture that makes it difficult to understand how they are in real life.

Well, in real life, bounty hunters work with bail bond companies when a defendant fails to show up for his or her court date. When the court notifies the bail bond company that a defendant has skipped court, for whatever reason, that specific bail agent is on the line. This specific bail agent will need to pay off the full bail bond, but in an effort to avoid that loss, they will hire a bounty hunter to track the defendant down and get them back into custody.

Bounty hunters may travel across state lines to bring defendants back into court if they have fled. They rarely work with the local law enforcement, but occasionally they must, according to the law.

Perris Bail Bond Store rarely needs to use bounty hunters, but as a warning, cases have dwindled down to that. We truly hope that you, needing our bail bond services, will not betray us in this manner or take us for granted! Perris Bail Bond Store will always be on your side! Speak with us today about the entire bail bonds process and we’ll see how we may best assist you!

What To Know Before Cosigning A Bail Bond

ontario-bail-bonds-562

Before co-signing a bail bond, you may want to know what you’re getting yourself into. It’s a nice gesture to do for that friend or family member who has been arrested because it not only shows that you care about them, but that you’re willing to support them through this whole ordeal as well. However, there are also some very big risks that could be of concern, and we’re here to lay them out for you right now:

  • You agree to pay off the full bail bond if the defendant fails to appear in court.
  • You must pledge collateral to support the bail bond.
  • You must relinquish your pledged collateral if the bail bond is revoked because the defendant failed to appear in court.

You’re probably already aware, but pledged collateral is no in-expensive item. It’s typically real estate property, vehicles, and valuables; such as jewelry, electronics, and firearms. Risks like these can completely deter people from ever co-signing a bail bond, even for their most trusted loved ones, but co-signers also have powerful rights to protect themselves. They may withdraw their name from the bail bond at any time if they feel that the defendant will skip court or violate the law again. By revoking their name from the bail bond, the defendant will be taken back into custody and the pledged collateral will be returned to the co-signer.

Ontario Bail Bond Store can get into the nitty-gritty of being a co-signer because it’s imperative that one know every last detail about this subject for their own protection. We’re here to help bail people out of jail, but we’re also here to look after the co-signers as well. Ontario Bail Bond Store has everyone’s back!

What A Bail Agent Can And Cannot Do

colton-bail-bonds-563

    A bail agent cannot:

  • Offer legal advice
  • Get bail lowered
  • Refer to you to an attorney
  • Accept bribes
  • Deposit any money towards a defendant for referring business and additional clients

A bail agent can do one main thing: bail you out of jail with a bail bond which you, or any friends or family, can pay off with an affordable payment plan. However, under this “one main thing” that your bail agent can do, there is a list of “sub-things” they can help with as well:

  • Customize your payment plan according to your financial situation.
  • Stay with you through the entire bail bonds process.
  • Keep you up to date on payments, and be available to you 24/7.

Bail agents honestly become some of the closest confidants during these ordeals. Colton Bail Bond Store promises confidentiality and quickness to get you through this situation, but in a timely, clean, and professional manner. Colton Bail Bond Store will also make sure the entire bail bonds process runs as smoothly as possible – there is no room for mistakes!

The First Gun Laws You Need To Know About In California

perris-bail-bonds-555

In light of recent events happening around the world, the topic of gun ownership always comes up. Some people want gun control while others want to keep the right to bear arms for protection and safety. People seem to have a heightened sense of security when they own guns. However, because of the deadly nature of these weapons, it will always cause an intense debate. California has some of the nation’s strictest gun laws, some of which were just added this year.

    Here are some things that you might not be aware of:

  • Long gun purchasers must be 18 and handgun purchases must be at least 21 years old. Purchasers may only buy a maximum of 1 handgun per month.
  • Before receiving their gun, purchasers must pass a universal background check, which will take 10 days minimum.
  • Purchasers must pass a written safety test and obtain a Firearm Safety Certificate.
  • Every gun will be micro-stamped, meaning a unique serial number will be transferred to every cartridge case every time the gun is fired. This allows crime scene investigators and police to trace bullets back to the gun owner.
  • Assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines are illegal to sell or buy.
  • Guns must be sold and purchased through licensed dealers; private sales are illegal.
  • No one may carry a gun on school campuses, including those who hold concealed weapons permits.
  • If family members believe their loved one, who owns a gun, is dangerous, they can request the police and judge to confiscate the guns for a few weeks. During these few weeks, the gun owner will be evaluated and questioned to figure out the situation and threat.

These gun laws are just the tip of the iceberg; obviously, there are hundreds of other laws regarding guns, but this is what you need to know if you ever consider owning a gun.
Guns can and will get you into serious trouble, so we at Perris Bail Bond Store are here to warn and caution people for their own safety. If you are ever arrested for misusing your gun, contact us immediately so we can help you sort this out. Perris Bail Bond Store may be able to help bail you out of jail.

Either you or someone you know needs to call us today at 800-793-2245, or chat with us online for immediate assistance.

Why Some Juveniles Will Get Bail While Most Won’t

ontario-bail-bonds-553

In the majority of cases, juveniles (17 years of age or younger) who have been arrested won’t have to pay for bail because the way the justice system is set up, they won’t be offered bail. They will be released to their parents. Bail is only offered for those who are 18 years or older, unless the judge denies bail. However, the exception to bail and juveniles is that if the juvenile is being tried as an adult, then he or she can be eligible for bail.

Ontario Bail Bond Store can help with bail for any adult and any juvenile who is being tried as an adult. We will work with you to create the most flexible and affordable payment plan as possible. We’re not trying to make the process difficult for you – we want this to be as easy and as smooth as possible for you; after all, you have much to worry about outside of bail bonds as it is.

We’re happy to give you a free consultation! An Ontario Bail Bond Store representative will even come to meet you face to face if necessary. We will not let you down!

Streaming TV Online Is Illegal – Remember!

riverside-county-bail-bonds-552

These days, there aren’t as many people watching television shows and catching movies at the movie theater as there once was. They don’t want to have to move their schedule around to be able to catch their favorite show at a certain programmed hour, and they don’t want to have to spend $15 for a movie ticket. However, they will still be on point with their television shows and their movies. They will probably decide to catch them online and even download them; saving them on their computer.

Most people probably aren’t reminded or aren’t even aware of the fact that each time they download a movie or a television episode on their device, that it’s illegal to do so. Content that is available and shown to a substantial number of people by one person is also illegal. These are copyright violations and can result in fines and even a brief time in jail, depending largely on the amount of content that was infringed upon.

If you are planning on watching your favorite television shows and movies online, make sure you do it on a legal streaming service like “Netflix” or “Hulu”. It wouldn’t be the greatest thing to have to pay for bail after being arrested for illegally watching, downloading, or sharing content. If that does become the case though, Riverside County Bail Bond Store will be available to help bail you out of jail for a lower price than what you’d have to pay directly to a jail (actually would be 85-90% lower). The only catch, regarding money, is that the 10-15% you initially had to pay to Riverside County Bail Bond Store will not be refunded.

Contact Riverside County Bail Bond Store today, and let’s talk more about the bail bonds process and how it will work for you!
