Christmas Tree Fire Safety Tips

Christmas Tree Fire Safety Tips

Christmas Tree Fire Safety Tips

Christmas time is a truly spectacular time of the year. Everyone everywhere is decorating their homes for the holiday. For many, this means placing a Christmas tree up in the center of the living room for everyone to enjoy. It is tradition after all. However, while having a real pine tree in the house is nice, it can quickly turn dangerous if a person is not careful.

Evergreen trees, while a large part of the Christmas celebration, can be very flammable. If someone isn’t careful, they can easily start a fire that ruins their entire holiday celebration. In order to prevent that, a person should follow these tips.

  • Pick a tree that does not lose needles at the touch of a finger. If a person touches a tree and it loses a lot of needles, then the tree is already beginning to dry out. Drier trees are more flammable than fresher ones.
  • Place the tree away from any heat sources. If a tree is too close to a heat source, it could easily ignite.
  • Once a tree is placed, it should be watered every single day. When a tree is watered daily, its life is prolonged, making it less of a fire hazard.
  • Replace light strings that are broken or damaged. This way they cannot cause a spark when placed on the tree.
  • Never use candles as decorations on a tree.
  • Always turn off the lights in the tree before leaving the house or going to bed.
  • After the holiday, get the tree out of the house as soon as possible. Once out of the house, do not store the tree against the house.

Christmas trees are a large part of the Christmas holiday. The festivities wouldn’t be the same without the sights and smells of evergreen trees. A person just needs to be careful. They do not want their precious tree to cause a fire and ruin the entire holiday for them.

 

Can Minors Drink in California?

Can Minors Drink in California?

Can Minors Drink in California?

As holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s roll around, there are plenty of parties to attend. Families get together to catch up and reflect on the passing year. These parties are full of fun, and typically, full of drinking. As long as there is no driving after the drinking, this is no problem for adults. After all, they can drink whenever they like.

However, problems can arise when the kids, especially teens, see all of the adults drinking. The fact that teens want to grow up sooner rather than later is no secret. One of their favorite requests is to join their parents and other adult relatives in drinking.

Some parents are fine with this request. They see no problem with it since the teen is in a safe and controlled environment surrounded by trusted adults. However, this is a problem in the State of California. If a parent or guardian is not careful, they could wind up in trouble with the law.

The Law In California

Here in California, and the rest of the United States, the legal age for a person to begin consuming alcohol is 21. Anyone under the age of 21 who consumes alcohol is breaking the law. The state of California makes it a crime to give or sell alcohol to a minor with Business and Professions Code 25658.

Under Business and Professions Code 25658, selling or furnishing alcohol to a minor is a misdemeanor offense. The law can apply to anyone who gives alcohol to a minor, or any minor who gets access to alcohol through the use of a fake ID.

What many people do not realize, is that this law applies to anyone who gives alcohol to a minor. This includes parents or guardians of the minor in question. If a minor is found to have a blood alcohol concentration of (BAC) 0.05% or greater, then the parent could face misdemeanor charges.

The Penalties

In California, parents who are found guilty of providing their child, who is a minor, with alcohol face misdemeanor charges. This means that they can face:

  • Up to 1 year in county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.
  • Some combination of fine and jail time.

These penalties are just slightly better than what a random person would face for breaking Business and Professions Code 25658. In addition to the above penalties, a person breaking this law would also be required to complete at least 24 hours of community service. If the person knowingly sold alcohol to a minor they, or the business, can lose their license to sell alcohol.

If someone under the age of 21 purchases or consumes alcohol on their own, they will face:

  • A $250 fine.
  • 24 to 32 hours of community service.
  • A 1 year suspension of their driver’s license, or a 1 year delay on being able to obtain their license.

Subsequent offenses lead to increased penalties for the minor in question.

Keep The Holidays Safe

While kids, especially teens, are always excited to grow up in a hurry, there are some things that should wait. Consuming alcohol is definitely one of those things. Not only is it not a great idea to allow a minor to consume alcohol, it can also get an adult into legal trouble. Even if the adult in question is the parent or guardian.

If a person wants to stay out of trouble this holiday season, then they need to drink responsibly. This means knowing their limits, having a designated driver (DD), and not allowing minors to consume alcohol. So long as a person does that, they can close out the year with loved ones and not behind bars.

No Two Situations Are The Same

No two people are the same, and even though two people may get into the same situation, the details of each one are unique.

Who Sets The Bail Prices In California?

Who Sets The Bail Prices In California?

Who Sets The Bail Prices In California?

If you have ever needed to bail someone out of jail, then you know that bail amounts can be ridiculously high. Even the cheapest bail amounts in the state of California cost several thousands of dollars. This makes it incredibly difficult for most people to bail their loved ones out of jail.

This struggle that people face causes them to wonder why the bail prices are set so high in the first place, when no one can afford to pay them. Who would set something so far out of reach? Many people assume bail agents have something to do with the pricing. After all, they are the ones who help people pay for them. However, that is not the case.

Bail agents are required by California law to charge 10% of the full bail amount.

Some companies are allowed to offer certain discounts to qualified clients. Bail agents often have their hands tied with what they can offer their clients.

The next guess is that the arresting officer determined the bail amount. This is sort of true. The arresting officers do assign bail amounts, but they are temporary until the defendant can have their first court hearing. These bail amounts are also pulled off of a bail schedule.

A bail schedule is unique to each county and is a list of every possible crime with a recommended bail amount.

Officers and court judges use this list to assign bail amounts. This means that whoever creates these bail schedules is responsible for the high bail prices. Bail schedules are created by select judges. These judges meet on a regular basis to evaluate and adjust the bail schedules as needed. They are the reason the bail prices are so high.

Since the idea of bail was invented hundreds of years ago, it has always needed to be slightly high. The bail amount has to be large enough that a person doesn’t want to part with it. This ensures that the person will return for their day in court. However, it still needs to be low enough that the average person can still afford it. That is the part that California law makers seem to have forgotten.

Speeding Is Illegal And Dangerous

Speeding Is Illegal And Dangerous

Speeding Is Illegal And Dangerous

Everyone has been late to something in their life. Anyone who has experienced this can attest to the fact that it is not fun. This makes a lot of people do whatever they can to avoid running late again in the future. Unfortunately, some people do this by breaking the law.

Speeding doesn’t seem like a big deal to a lot of drivers out there, especially since so many people do it on a daily basis. However, speeding is still illegal because it is dangerous. Speeding is classified as driving faster than what could be considered safe or prudent based on weather, visibility, and traffic.

The faster someone drives, the less time they have to react to an unexpected change or danger. This is what causes accidents.

Speeding is the third most common cause of accidents.

Driving under the influence comes in second, and distracted driving is number one. This gives you a good idea of how dangerous speeding truly is.

Here in California, drivers will face tickets for speeding, which are arguably worse than just getting to their destination a few minutes late. So long as the overall speed was under 100 miles per hour (mph), the ticket prices are as follows:

  • $35 for being 1 to 15 mph over the speed limit.
  • $70 for being 16 to 25 mph over the speed limit.
  • $100 for being 26 mph or more over the limit.

For anyone caught going over 100 mph, they face a max fine of up to $500, as well as a 30 day suspension of their license for a first time offense. If caught speeding like that again, the max fine can be up to $750 with a 6 month license suspension. A third or subsequent offense earns a person a max fine of $1,000 and a 1 year license suspension.

Despite how it may seem, speeding is a very dangerous thing to do. Driving at unsafe speeds can easily cause accidents that can harm or kill people, which is why the act is illegal.

What Could Be Considered Illegal Dumping?

What Could Be Considered Illegal Dumping?

What Could Be Considered Illegal Dumping?

Everyone generates trash that they want to get rid of. Sometimes the item that a person is throwing away is simply broken, or it was just the wrapper that contained the item. No matter the case, the item is no longer needed and is discarded.

Now most people, when they collect too much trash, they either pay to have a waste disposal company pick it up on a weekly basis, or they take it to the dump themselves and pay the dumping fee. However, there are some people out there who do not want to pay to throw away their garbage or other unwanted items.

Instead of making sure that their garbage ends up in a designated dump, they find a barren stretch of road and leave the trash there. Not only can this be unsanitary, but it makes the entire state look bad when more and more people start doing it. What these people may not realize is that dumping trash in random areas is illegal. When caught dumping waste illegally, a person is likely to face hefty fines, especially if they are a repeat offender.

What Constitutes Illegal Dumping In California?

Here in California, the crime of illegally dumping waste matter is defined under Penal Code 374.3. The crime lists several example instances when it is illegal for a person to dump waste matter.

The dumping of waste can be a problem when it is done in one of these 4 locations:

  • On a public or private road.
  • On private property that the public can access through an easement.
  • On private property without the owner’s consent.
  • On public property that isn’t a designated dumping place for garbage.

Under Penal Code 374.3, waste matter is not just trash. The following can all count as illegally dumped waste material:

  • Everyday trash.
  • Construction materials.
  • Yard trimmings.
  • Animal carcasses.
  • Any object likely to cause harm to someone.
  • Any object likely to cause a traffic accident.

This is just a simplified version of everything that the Penal Code lists. It even lists things such as cigarettes and matches. Basically, if an item can be left behind, then it can be considered as illegally dumped waste.

What Are The Penalties Of Illegal Dumping?

The act of illegally dumping waste matter is an infraction level offense. This means that a person caught breaking this law will not face jail time. However, they will face some hefty fines. This is especially true if the person continues to dump things illegally.

  • For a first time offense of illegal dumping, a person faces a fine of anywhere from $250 to $1,000.
  • A second time offense earns a person a fine from $500 to $1,500.
  • Any subsequent offense earns a person a fine anywhere from $750 to $3,000.

While those fines can be bad enough on their own, they may not come alone. For instance, these fines will double if any of the illegally dumped matter included used vehicle tires. In addition to the above fines, additional fines can be added on that are based on how long the illegally dumped material sat there. Depending on the situation, a person can also be charged with vandalism and trespassing, which would include their own penalties as well.

If the dumped material was in large enough quantities that they could only come from commercial business, then the crime falls under Penal Code 374.3(h), which is illegally dumping commercial qualities. This is a misdemeanor level offense with drastically increased fines.

Illegal Dumping Just Isn’t Worth It

Basically, dumping is something that everyone should take seriously. It is not a crime that person wants to commit just to avoid a few dump fees. It isn’t worth it. The fines will definitely cost more than it would to just pay a waste disposal company.

If a person is looking to throw away a large item that will not fit in their regular trash receptacle, they may be able to call either their city or their waste disposal company. Some cities and companies allow people to schedule large pickups of trash to make disposal possible.

If a person finds illegally dumped waste, or witnesses someone in the act of illegally dumping waste, they should report it to local authorities. If the person witnesses the act, they should take down the following information to give to the proper authorities:

  • Date, time, and location of incident.
  • Description of vehicle and license plate number.
  • Description of person(s) dumping.
  • The items/materials being dumped.

Depending on where the person is, they should report the incident to either the city police, local police, or Environmental Services. If everyone follows dumping laws, and reported incidents of illegal dumping, then the entire state would be a lot cleaner. That is something that everyone would enjoy.
