Is Parking In Front Of A Hydrant A Good Idea?

Is Parking In Front Of A Hydrant A Good Idea?

Is Parking In Front Of A Hydrant A Good Idea?

When a person is driving in a city or heavily populated area, they know that finding a parking spot is probably going to be difficult. After all, there are a lot of people in cities, all of whom are trying to find a spot close to their destination to minimize any walk time. This process can be made even more difficult thanks to all sorts of signs, meters, and rules regarding parking.

Often times, cites have signage up that instructs drivers on when they can park in certain areas. These signs can often be a bit confusing to some drivers, but can easily be understood after some quick consideration. Other rules are much more straightforward, such as never park on a red curb. At least, that is what most people would think. Some drivers don’t pay attention to this simple rule and end up paying the price.

California’s Color Coordinated Curbs

Parking is such a simple act. All a driver is doing is bringing their car to a stop in a safe, designated area. However, here in California, there are a lot of rules and restrictions on where a person can park their car. A driver cannot just leave their vehicle wherever they feel like, whenever they want.

A driver can come across several different colored curbs while driving, and each one tells a driver a different rule. Some examples includes:

  • Blue: Parking is reserved for vehicles of handicapped people only.
  • Green: Vehicles can only be parked for a limited amount of time.
  • Red: No parking or stopping in front of this curb.
  • White: Cars can only stop long enough to pick up or drop off someone.
  • Yellow: Cars can only stop long enough to pick up or drop off cargo and the driver needs to stay with the vehicle.

These color codes are very basic and simple to understand, and still some drivers struggle with them. If they do not follow these rules, then they can find themselves getting a ticket.

Parking In Front Of A Fire Hydrant

One of the biggest no-no’s when it comes to parking is, parking in front of a fire hydrant. With every fire hydrant, fifteen feet in either direction, the curb is usually painted red. This is done to allow fire fighters to have access to the hydrant in case of an emergency. They need all of that space to do their job properly. Intruding on that space can be the difference between someone losing their home.

Parking in front of a hydrant may seem harmless, since how often do fires really break out? However, structure fires break out pretty frequently, and fire fighters will do whatever they need to in order to put the blaze out. Often times this means breaking the vehicles windows so the fire hose can run through it. There are plenty of images of this happening online when some dumb driver decided to park in front of a hydrant.

Not only does this mean the person has to pay for repairs on their vehicle, they can count on their vehicle being impounded and receiving a ticket from local law enforcement. This means that a person who parks in front of a fire hydrant will have a lot of expenses to deal with, which will add up quickly.

Don’t Park In Front Of Hydrants

Having brightly painted curbs is a quick and easy way to alert drivers to where they can and cannot park, provided the driver pays attention. Of course, paint fades over time, and some hydrants may not be marked as no parking areas; however, that does not mean that a person can park in front of the hydrant.

Even if the open spot in front of a hydrant is close, it simply isn’t worth it to park there. A good rule of thumb is to never park in front of a hydrant, and keep a car length of distance between a vehicle and a hydrant. That will ensure that the car is never too close to a hydrant. A driver just needs to keep an eye out, or else they could wind up dealing with some costly consequences.

 

Current California Law On Dissection In School Classrooms

Current California Law On Dissection In School Classrooms

Current California Law On Dissection In School Classrooms

Most adults probably remember the day they got to dissect an animal in one of their science classes back in school. Dissection day was a pretty big deal back then. For some students, the prospect of doing something new was very exciting and intriguing. For others, the thought of dissection just threatened to bring their last meal back up.

Everyone handles the idea of dissection differently. Some people have the stomach for it, and others don’t. No matter how a person feels about dissection, there is no denying that the lesson itself is important. It is a great way to teach kids how the body works. Nowadays, kids who have an aversion to dissection are allowed to complete some other form of study that meets the same teaching criteria as the dissection itself.

With recent advances in technology, and the stronger than ever push to protect all forms of life on the planet, some people are arguing that the act of dissection is no longer needed in schools. The same lesson can be taught through other means without having to harm a living creature. That is the premise behind a new bill introduced to the California Assembly.

What Is Assembly Bill 1586?

Recently, California Assemblyman Ash Kalra from San Jose introduce Assembly Bill (AB) 1586. This bill seeks to change the current law on dissection in school classrooms mandates that children who have an aversion to physical dissections be given an alternative course of study on the subject. This could mean using a 3D model or computer program, or simply reading about it in a book. The law also states that the new task has to require the same amount of time as the dissection itself.

AB 1586 looks to change that optional change to a mandatory one. AB 1586 would prohibit all children, anyone under 18, from participating in the dissection of a living animal. The bill goes on to define what constitutes participation in a dissection, by stating that it is the act of dismembering, or just viewing the act of dismembering.

This new law would not apply to the dissections of non-living things, such as owl pellets or to preserved samples such as microscope slides.

To Dissect Or Not To Dissect?

There is no denying that learning about how living organisms work is very important, especially for any child who may want to work in a biological science or medical field. This makes dissection day very important for students. It can help them make a decision toward what they want to do for a living.

However, there is also no denying that modern technology has opened doors that were pretty much non-existent when many adults were in school. Nowadays, it is very possible to get a believable model to dissect on a computer. The act of dismembering a once living animal may no longer be needed as an educational tool.

What do you think of AB 1586?

Should dissection be outlawed in all California schools, or is it decades of old tradition that should be preserved? Let us know what you think in the comments down below and tell us about your dissection day memories.

 

How Much Trouble Can You Get For On A Joyride?

How Much Trouble Can You Get For On A Joyride?

How Much Trouble Can You Get For On A Joyride?

Everyone has different feeling about driving. For some people, driving just means dealing with traffic and other drivers. For others, driving is all about freedom and having fun. Regardless of how a person feels about the task, driving is a great way to get wherever a person needs to be. Unfortunately, owning a car can be very costly.

Cars alone are not cheap, plus the gas they need to run, and all of the maintenance they need throughout their life. This high cost of ownership can prevent some people from being able to own a car for themselves. While this isn’t a problem for most people, since public transportation is usually available, others do have trouble not owning a car. They love to drive, and so they may decide to “borrow” someone else’s car. However, doing so can get a person into quite a bit of trouble.

What Is Joyriding?

Some people like to participate in an act most commonly known as joyriding. After all, it sounds like a lot of fun, especially since joy is right there in the name. How could something as nice sounding as joyriding be bad? Well, that’s because it involves taking someone else’s property.

Joyriding is the act of driving someone else’s car or vehicle without their permission. The person may have just wanted to take the car for a quick spin, but that can still deprive the car owner, the ability to use their own vehicle. Whether or not the person intended to steal the car permanently is irrelevant. Even if the person just borrowed the car to run a quick errand, if they did it without the owner’s consent, they are guilty of joyriding.

Law Against Joyriding

The state of California even has a law against joyriding, which is different than more known crimes like grand theft auto. California Vehicle Code (VC) 10851 makes it a crime for a person to drive a vehicle without the owner’s consent with the intent of depriving the owner of the vehicle for some amount of time. It does not matter if the person intended to return the vehicle or not because they took it without permission.

An owner of a vehicle can accuse a person of joyriding even if they told the owner they were taking the car so long as the owner didn’t give permission to do so. One of the only times this doesn’t apply is when the person who took the car has some claim of right to do so.

The consequences of joyriding can vary depending on the case. Here in California, VC 10851 is known as a wobbler. This means that it can either be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony. When charged as a misdemeanor, the person faces:

  • Up to one year in jail.
  • A fine of up to $5,000.

When charged as a felony, the consequences increase. For starters, the jail stay can be one of three lengths: 16 months, 2 years, or 3 years. In addition, the fine increases to a maximum of $10,000.

The consequences for joyriding also increase if the person “borrowed” an emergency service vehicle such as a firetruck, ambulance, or police car. Having a prior felony conviction of joyriding or grand theft auto is also enough to increase the penalties.

Don’t Take Something Without Permission

Taking something without the owner’s permission is never a good idea, even if the person intends to return it. However, it is a much worse idea with something as valuable as a car. Joyriding is a crime under California law, and carries some hefty consequences. In fact, this kind of behavior is so frowned upon within the state that there is even a law against taking someone’s bicycle without their permission.

The bottom line is that a person should never take something without having the permission to do so. If someone wants to borrow a friend or neighbor’s car, they should just ask. Being told no would be a much better outcome than getting arrested and sent to jail.

How To Deal With An Arrest

How To Deal With An Arrest

How To Deal With An Arrest

A lot of people pride themselves on knowing exactly what they need and when they need to do it. By knowing what steps need to be taken next, people are better able to prepare for each one. This also enables a person relax since they know what to expect. While this is nice, there are times where people have no idea what to do, and that can cause them to worry.

This is definitely the case when a person has been arrested. Whether they were the one who was arrested or they just know someone who was arrested, most people have no idea how to deal with that kind of situation. They need help to deal with it. Luckily, there are professionals from David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia located all over the state of California.

Here at David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia, we have been helping Californians deal with an arrest of a loved one for over 30 years. Unlike most people, we deal with arrests and bail on a daily basis. This means that we are more than comfortable with how everything works. We like to share this knowledge with others to make an arrest as unintimidating as possible.

What To Do Once Arrested

When a person suddenly finds themselves in handcuffs, the person needs to remain calm. Getting upset and confrontational will only make things worse. Even though most people aren’t happy with the officer that is arresting them, it is important to remember that the officer is just doing his or her job. The easier their job is, the better the mood they will be in, which can get the arrested individual their one phone call sooner.

Staying calm not only puts the officers in a better mood, but helps a person stay calm and make better decisions, which is very important. When a person makes their phone call, they need to call the right friend or family member. It needs to be someone that they can trust to relay information. Whoever they call will be the middle man between the person in jail and concerned loved ones. It is a very important role.

A person should not call someone who they cannot count on to deliver important information to other loved ones. If possible, try to contact someone who has dealt with jail and arrests before. They will be a little more equipped to help deal with the situation, which will work well for the person in jail.

What To Do If Someone Called You From Jail

If a person was just contacted by a friend or family member in jail, then they need to help out. They are now responsible for sharing information with other loved ones. They need to contact other loved ones as well as the person’s employer to let them know what has happened.

After being contacted by an incarcerated loved one, the person will want to help out however they can. The contacted loved one may also need to watch over the person’s home and/or pets. Basically, the loved one needs to help keep things running smoothly. This can be anything from watching the person’s house while they are in jail, to posting their bail. The best way to bail someone out of jail in California is to contact David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia. Our bail agents will guide their clients through each and every step of the bail bond process.

The Bail Process

The bail process starts the moment a client contacts one of our professional bail agents here at David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia. In order to get going, a bail agent needs, at the very least, the name, date of birth, and the name of the county where the arrest took place. Once that information is given, the agent can locate the loved one in the county jail system and get the rest of the needed information for the paperwork.

Once that is all filled out and ready to go, the agent will start work with the client to create a personalized payment plan. The plan will be designed to work with the client’s unique budget and make the bail bond more affordable by splitting up the cost for several months.

After the initial payment has been received, our agents will deliver the bail bond to the jail and secure the client’s release from jail.

Getting Out On Bail Is Better Than Staying In Jail

At David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia, the job isn’t done once the person is out of jail. After that, our bail agents keep the clients up to date on all upcoming court dates. This helps prevent the client from accidentally winding up in more trouble by missing a court appearance. That is something that no one wants to deal with.

After a person is bailed out of jail, they can begin to return to their normal life. While things won’t be exactly how they were, thanks to court appearances, life will be a lot nicer outside of jail. The person can return to work, thereby keeping their job and continuing to make money. They will also be able to sleep in their own bed and take care of their home on their own. Lastly, they will be able to say thank you to whoever helped them get out of jail.

 

Not Paying For A Meal Can Get You Arrested

Not Paying For A Meal Can Get You Arrested

Not Paying For A Meal Can Get You Arrested

Going out to eat is a pretty common activity. Many families go out to eat once a week and there is nothing wrong with that. After all, making dinner can be such a hassle after a long day at work. Most people do not have the time or energy to prepare a full meal for themselves, let alone the rest of the family. Why not go someplace where the cooking is handled by professionals who truly know how to cook?

While going out to eat once in a while is not a bad thing, what is a bad thing is skipping out on the check, and not the whole leaving the check for someone else at the table to pay scheme. That’s just rude on a different level. What is truly bad is a practice that is often referred to as dine and dash. For some people, it seems like a harmless prank, but this can actually get the person into some legal trouble.

What Is Dine And Dash?

For those unaware, dine and dash is the underhanded practice of getting a meal, and then leaving before anyone has paid the bill. This practice has several different names, such as dine and ditch, eat and run, and several others. No matter what it is called, it is just wrong.

The scammer gets a free meal at the expense of the restaurant. Depending on the size of the bill, this scam can cost the restaurant quite a bit. It also hurts the server and busboy for the table who end up missing out on a tip. Many people in those jobs depend on those tips for their day-to-day expenses.

This is not to be confused with someone ordering a meal, and then realizing they can’t afford it afterwards. Most restaurants are pretty understanding of this. They know that accidents happen, and sometimes cards get declined or someone forgot their wallet. Restaurants will usually work with customers to make up for it, such as allowing them to come back the next day to pay for the meal. Some may call the police, but only to help them get the customer’s information to ensure they will return to pay for the meal, not to arrest them right there and then.

Since dine and dash practices can be very costly for restaurants, as well as a nuisance, there is actually a law against the practice. Anyone who is caught committing this crime in California can face legal charges.

What Is California Penal Code 537?

In the state of California, there is a law that protects all sorts of businesses from being defrauded by customers. This California Penal Code (PC) 537, which is often referred to as California’s Defrauding an Innkeeper Law. While it may not initially sound like it, this law applies to anyone who commits the crime of dining and dashing.

PC 537 states that any person who obtains food, fuel, or services from a very long list of different businesses without intending to pay for said services is guilty and will face misdemeanor charges. Some of the business types listed in this law include:

  • Hotels
  • Inns
  • Restaurants
  • Apartment House
  • Campground

Basically, this law covers any place where a person can get a service of some sort. PC 537 views acts such as dine and dash as an act of fraud against the restaurant and its staff. This is due to the fact that the people who commit this crime often entered the establishment with the intent of never paying for the services that they would receive.

Consequences Of Dine And Dash

PC 537 is a wobbler crime here in California. This means that it can be charged as either a misdemeanor or as a felony. The severity of the charge is dependent on how much money is owed to the business in question.

If the amount of money owed is less than or equal to $950, then the person will face misdemeanor charges. This means that a person could end up with:

  • A six month stay in a county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.

If the amount of money is greater than $950 dollars, then the person will probably be facing felony charges. This means that their consequences will be more severe, such as:

  • Up to 1 year in a state prison.
  • A max fine of no more than $10,000.

Just Pay For The Meal

Going out to eat is a pretty common practice and can be a nice change of pace from eating at home. A person just needs to make sure that they actually pay for the meal at the end of the night. If the person forgot their wallet or can’t afford the meal, don’t panic. Just talk to the server and try to figure out a plan to pay for the meal at some point. Most restaurants are very understanding in these situations.

However, if the person just tries to run and skip out on the check, they could face legal trouble, the results of which could make the meal very costly for the person. So much so, that at the end of the day, it would have been cheaper to just pay for the meal rather than trying to run. After all, no one wants to end up in jail because they didn’t pay for their dinner.
