When there is an emergency that requires immediate professional attention and care, the number to dial is 911. Emergencies include reporting a fire, or a car accident. Basically anything where fire, police, or medical attention is needed in order to save a life, reduce damaged property, catch a criminal, or rescue someone.
Emergencies do not include a restaurant running out of the barbecue sauce you wanted, really disliking your neighbor because they play loud music all the time, or not knowing how to unclog your toilet. There are certain times when calling 911 is and is not warranted for an incident.
In every state, including California, it is illegal to dial 911 if it is not an emergency. A person who abuses the hotline can be charged with an infraction and fined. They can even put into jail. To provide some perspective, a person can be fined up to $1,000 and put into jail for up to 6 months if they repeatedly call 911 with the intent to annoy or harass another person, such as a neighbor they strongly dislike. For other instances where 911 is dialed for non-emergency related incidences, the person can be fined as much as $200 per dial.
Misusing 911 ties up the call center’s hotlines. This means that people who are calling for a true emergency must wait even longer to get the assistance they need immediately. Additionally, the more times a single individual dials 911, the longer others have to wait. That amounts to crucial seconds and minutes lost for those who really need emergency services.
You need to use your best judgement to know when to dial 911. If you are unsure, it is best to call 911 anyway, just in case. Before dispatching the police, an ambulance, or the fire department, they will ask you a few questions in regards to the situation to help them assess and evaluate the need for assistance. Then, they will quickly dispatch emergency services. Other times, the matter can be resolved right then and there with them guiding you over the phone or explaining, for the future, what would or would not be an emergency call. They are careful when explaining this since they do not want to discourage people from ever calling 911 again.
Your skills qualify you for the job you are interviewing for and you hit it off with your interviewer. They tell you that unofficially, you have the job. They just need to do a background check and get the paperwork in order. Once everything clears, you are hired! However, you are worried that your potential employer will discover something on your background check that will put you in jeopardy of getting the position.
Background checks are standard procedure for job positions. They are also standard for other needs, like trying to get a home or an apartment. They are legal to do so long as the company complies with the federal and state laws on conducting background checks. The employer just wants to know if you have once been arrested for a crime. When they conduct the background check, misdemeanors and felonies that have occurred in the last 7 years will show up. Infractions and any crimes that you were charged for that occurred over 7 years ago will not show up on your background check.
Additionally, if you received a pardon on a conviction, then that conviction will not show up on a background check. Sealed and expunged records will also not appear on background checks. Finally, if you had successfully completed a diversion program because of an arrest, then that arrest does not show up on your record either.
The chances of the employer denying you a job purely because of your criminal record is slim. If you are worried, you can discuss your concerns, but only if the employer brings up the topic.
Having a criminal history is not going hold you back from getting a job or home. Do not stress about that. If anything, it proves you dealt with something big and you managed to get through it professionally and maturely. That is a positive way to look at it, and hopefully your potential employers will think the same as well.
Toward the end of last year, California finally made it a law to protect citizens who, in good faith and after exhausting all other options to no avail, break into hot vehicles to rescue a dog. Since the law has gone into effect, there have been few incidences where such action needed to take place. Now, summer is here and for the first time since the law went into effect, the temperatures will consistently top 70 and 80 degrees daily. This means that more dogs are vulnerable to being left alone in a hot vehicle while their owner runs an errand.
There are certain steps and conditions in order for the individual, who broke into the car, to be protected from criminal charges. This person first must be certain that there is no way of opening the vehicle without breaking in. They must identify the dog inside is indeed suffering and in danger. They must call the police to let them know of the situation, and they must stay on-site with the dog until the police arrive.
On a hot day, the temperature outside is more bearable than the inside of a vehicle. For example, on an 80 degree day, a car can get as hot as 120 degrees within 10 minutes. If it is 90 degrees outside, the car can reach 150 degrees.
While this Good Samaritan law protects individuals who break into a hot vehicles to save a pet, it does not truly protect them if they were to break into a car to save another human life, like that of a child. That is a legal grey area that California lawmakers must still work on.
If you have a vacation coming up, but you or a travel companion of yours is currently out on bail, you will need to make sure that their release terms and court appearances are not going to conflict with the travel plans. Unfortunately, you will need to prioritize the court situation over your vacation, even if it was planned months ago. By doing this, you and your loved ones are showing the court that you are serious about taking care of this important situation, and that you do not want to cause any additional issues or delays.
First, you will need to know if the judge is even allowing the defendant to travel while out on bail. If there are no travel restrictions, then the defendant is free to move forward with their upcoming vacation. However, the judge may impose certain travel restrictions. For example, the defendant may only be allowed to travel within the state, or among certain states. Then there are some defendants who are not allowed to travel at all. These defendants will even be required to hand their passport over to the court.
No matter what travel restrictions there may be, there is one thing that applies equally to all defendants: they must appear for court as scheduled. If the defendant fails to show up for court or is late, their bail falls into jeopardy and the defendant runs the risk of being taken back into custody. This could lead to paying more, and losing any pledged collateral.
For defendants who are allowed to travel and plan to do so, they should let their bail agent, and lawyer, know ahead of time. They will also need to make sure they are back in time for their next court date. If they need to return early, so be it. Traveling is great but if they skip court, they will not get the luxury to travel again for a very long time.
If you, or anyone you know, is ever in need of a bail bond, contact Riverside Bail Bonds online or at 951-684-4484 .
When you get a traffic ticket for speeding or running a stop sign, you can easily pay it, but you wonder whether it is worth fighting the ticket. You might be able to get it reduced or thrown out altogether. In some cases, it can be worth it to fight. However, it is not always the easiest or fastest thing to deal with. In the long run, you may end up losing more money on wasted time. Before you decide, evaluate the pros and cons, including how disruptive it could be to your daily routine and how much you have to gain or lose financially. You need to look at not only your ticket, but your insurance premiums that could increase due to the ticket.
You can get out of paying for a traffic ticket if you show up for court, but the officer does not. This results in an automatic win for you because you are being denied the right to question your accuser. If you postpone your court date and even choose one close to the holidays, you could be increasing your chances on having a no-show from the officer. Officers tend to schedule all their court appearances on the same days so they can do them all at once. If you can get the date moved, you could be in luck. If you get a date close to a major holiday, there is a chance the officer is off on vacation. The officer also may not show up for court if your ticket is inexpensive and is for a very low-level incident.
If you get a ticket based on camera footage, the ticket can get dismissed if the court does not have the video or picture. The courthouse may not want to go through the trouble of acquiring that video footage which means you win and do not have to pay the ticket.
There are other ways to fight a ticket, like getting a lawyer who specializes in traffic cases, but the ones mentioned here are the easiest, fastest, and most affordable ways to get out of paying for the ticket. These depend on your luck, but there could be a chance that luck is on your side.
Summer is officially here now, which means everyone will be doing their best to stay out of the heat. During this time of the year, it is extra important to remember that no child or pet should be left in a car under any circumstances. Leaving someone in a car on a warm day can put them in great danger.
If it is extremely hot outside, it will be worse inside a locked car. Cars heat up rapidly in the summer heat. Even if it is only 85 degrees outside, the interior of a car can heat up to 100 in less than 10 minutes. This can get even worse if the outside temperature is over 100 degrees. At higher temps, the inside of the car can reach 140 degrees in as little as 15 minutes.
This is why children and animals should not be left in a parked car during the summer months. They can easily suffer heatstroke and could possibly die because of it. That is something no one wants to face just because they had to run into the store for a minute.
It is also important to remember that it is illegal in California to leave a child or pet unattended in a car when it endangers the child or animal. In some instances, it is perfectly legal for a bystander to do what is necessary to get the child or pet out of the vehicle to safety.
This summer, remember to consider your child or pet when you need to run errands. You should take your kid with you into the store, even if it is only for a few minutes, and maybe it is best for you to leave your pet at home. This way, nobody is left in an inhospitable environment and everybody stays happy and safe.
We made it through our first big heat wave, so you can rejoice about that. Unfortunately, this is only the beginning and you should brace yourself. You can count on there being more scorching days this summer. Remember to stay extra hydrated by drinking plenty of water and to put on sunblock when you spend any time outside. When you are driving someone in your car, especially your own young children, remember to open windows or turn the AC on. If you have to make a stop, do not leave them in the car alone. Not only is this illegal depending on the child’s age, it is also very dangerous in hot weather.
Vehicles heat up within minutes on hot days. If you think the weather outside is bad, the temperature inside the car is even worse. If you have a young child with you and you need to make a pit stop, bring them with you. It is illegal to leave a child who is 6 years old or younger unattended in a car unless they are supervised by someone who is at least 12 years old. However, even if your child is old enough to legally be left alone in the vehicle, you need to consider if they feel comfortable being left alone, the safety of the surrounding area, and how hot it is outside.
There are a number of consequences the driver can face for leaving their child unattended in a hot vehicle. These consequences include, but are not limited to, fines, jail time, being inspected by social services for child endangerment, and the loss of the child.
Whether it is over 100 degrees or 70 degrees, think of the safety of your child first. Although you may take a few minutes longer during your pit stop, taking them in with you is the safest and most responsible way to handle the situation.
The world of American sports is electrifying. There is no shortage of sports to appeal to the crowd. There’s football, basketball, golf, swimming, cycling, sailing, and so many more options. If you really know sports, you know that there is always some major sporting event happening. This means that there are plenty of opportunities to try and make the events a little more eventful by placing bets.
There are rules and regulations that Californians must follow when it comes to betting on sporting events, including the following:
It is legal to place bets.
- It is illegal to take a bet or be a bookie.
- It is illegal for an athlete and a bettor to conspire, where the athlete will intentionally rig or throw a game in order for the bettor to win. People who do this can face prison time and a fine of up to $5,000.
- Refs, umpires, and other in-game officials are not allowed to take bribes. Both the person who offers the bribe and the official can be put into jail and pay a $10,000 fine.
Forms of legal gambling in California include the lottery, gambling on horse races, and going to Indian/ Native American casinos. Other casinos are now allowed in California, but Native American ones are permitted because they are built on sovereign Native American land. Card tables and slot machines can be found in these casinos, and anyone who is of legal age to gamble, is allowed to do so inside these casinos. A word of caution: although the minimum age to gamble is 18, many Native American casinos actually require patrons to be at least 21 to enter the premises because they serve alcohol.
A parkway refers to the narrow strip of land that occupies the space between sidewalks and the curb. Parkways run parallel to the street and sidewalk and are landscaped, although many do not appear so because people have parked their cars on these areas over the years. In Los Angeles, officials have turned a blind eye to drivers who park their cars on parkways, but that may soon change.
Finding parking is a challenge in any major metropolis, and Los Angeles is no exception. In neighborhoods that are densely populated, residents slowly started to leave their vehicles in these parkway areas. Realizing they were never getting ticketed or towed, they continued to claim these as regular parking spots, and others in the area started to catch on to this trend. What they did not know was that the city actually agreed to be lenient on these individuals back in 2011, but they never made a formal announcement. Angelenos figured it out for themselves.
A few weeks ago, the Los Angeles transportation committee proposed a law that would make parkway parking illegal once again. In fact, the proposed law even says that standing or stopping on the parkway would also be illegal.
Should the proposed law be approved, the city would first implement a grace period.During this time they would reach out to residents to warn them to stop parking in these locations because starting mid-August, they would begin issuing tickets and citations once again.
Even if the law passes, drivers will still be able to park on their own driveway apron, which is the paved section from the curb up to the driveway as long as their vehicle does not block the street or the sidewalk.
