Rules Of Fireworks Swall

For anyone who is starting to plan their July 4 activities, do not forget the fireworks! It is always great watching the big fireworks show that is planned for the general public, but at some point you get tired of going early to find parking and snag a good spot. Besides, this year, your friend is hosting a party and you do not want to miss it. This party still needs fireworks because what is a 4th of July celebration without them? If you plan on bringing some fireworks to your friend’s party, make sure you know what is and is not allowed. The last thing you want is for somebody to get hurt and the police to shut you guys down.

Fireworks are categorized as either “dangerous fireworks” or “safe and sane fireworks.

Rules Of Fireworks

DANGEROUS FIREWORKS
In order to purchase and use dangerous fireworks, you must have a special license. Basically, the general public cannot purchase dangerous fireworks. Those who put on the official fireworks show for the general public can. These individuals have that special display license needed. Plus, purchasers with the special display license must be at least 18 years old.

SAFE & SANE FIREWORKS
The general public can purchase safe and sane fireworks, but only from licensed sellers and only between June 28 and July 6 each year. Anyone who wishes to purchase any safe and sane fireworks must be at least 16 years old.

There are penalties if someone disobeys any firework laws in California. They include up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Most violations are classified as a misdemeanor, but charges can increase to a felony if it involves dangerous fireworks and/or if an incident occurred that caused injury or even death. Felonies are punishable with more time in prison and thousands of dollars in fines, not to mention whatever you would need to pay for medical ativan bills and legal fees.

In order to avoid accidents caused by fireworks, there are certain practices to follow. For example, legally purchased safe and sane fireworks should be used outdoors and away from trees and bushes that can catch fire. They should also be used away from sources of gas and other flammable items and materials. Responsible and mature individuals should be the ones using them, and children need to be supervised. Fireworks come with safety instructions, so make sure to read those carefully.

California counties may have additional fireworks laws that differ from each other so make sure you understand what is and is not allowed where you are located. Fireworks are a spectacle that everyone wants to enjoy. It would be awful to be the one to ruin the fun, so educate yourself so everyone can share in the fun.

How Can I Lower Bail?

Bail is money owed to court in order for a defendant to be released from jail. The amount owed depends on the crime that the defendant is being accused of, any prior criminal record that he or she has, and their financial ability to pay for bail. Bail is set considerably high to encourage the defendant to show up for their court dates because if they do, their bail money can be refunded to them.

There is no way to formally lower the bail amount. A lawyer cannot do this, and neither can a bail bondsman. A defendant can petition the judge to reconsider the bail amount, but it is extremely unlikely the judge will change it.

What can be done to change up how bail can be paid is to hire a bail bondsman. By doing this, the defendant does not pay the court 100% of the bail. Rather, he or she and anyone on his or her behalf, pays the bail bondsman 10% of the full bail amount over a fixed amount of time. A customized payment plan will be drawn up that is put together around the financial situation of those who will be paying. Unlike cash bail though, the 10% paid to the bail bondsman is not refunded.

Even with bail bonds, the bail amount itself is still set in the high tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars range, but the defendant use a different method to pay for the bail. With a bail bond, that high number shrinks and becomes much more manageable.

What Collateral Is Acceptable For Bail Bonds?

When looking into getting a bail bond, you might come across the term collateral and wonder what it means. Companies use collateral like insurance. If the defendant is compliant with all the terms of the bail bond, then the collateral is returned back to the original owner. If the defendant fails to make payments on the bail bond, gets in trouble again while out on bail, or skips town, the bail bond company claims the collateral from the person who pledged it. This protects the bail bond company from a loss.

Common things to put up for collateral include vehicles, real estate, electronics, and other valuables. For vehicles and real estate, the owner must have made all payments already or have a large majority ownership of the item. This puts some pressure on the collateral owner to make sure the defendant shows up for court.
