No Pets While Driving

No Pets While Driving

No Pets While Driving

Anyone who has a pet knows how fun they are to be around. Often times, pet owners would prefer to spend time at home with their furry companion rather than deal with people. They often fantasize about being able to take their pet to work with them, just to make the day more bearable. Unfortunately, taking pets everywhere with them isn’t always a good idea.

Pets don’t always understand human customs. This can lead to them misbehaving in the most inopportune times, which is why they aren’t allowed in certain places. One town in Ohio has just outlawed pets from one area that many people are all too happy to have pets.

A new city ordinance in Mantua, Ohio looks to crackdown on distracted driving by making it illegal for a person to drive with a pet in their lap. There is no denying that pets can be distracting at times with their cute little faces and fluffy bodies. Unfortunately for them, driving is a time when people cannot pay attention to them.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 9 people die every single day due to distracted driving.

Sadly, having a pet in your lap while driving can be very distracting. They can restrict a drivers’ movements and take their attention away from the important task at hand. A driver needs to keep their focus on the road as much as possible, which is why Mantua enacted this law. Now, local police officers will be able to ticket drivers caught driving in this very distracting way.

As much as we love our pets, they can get in the way at times. They may not mean to, but it does happen. This is especially true when it comes to driving. That is why it is best to either leave the pet at home, or have them sit in a separate part of the car.

 

Keep Your Pets Healthy And Warm This Winter

Keep Your Pets Healthy And Warm This Winter

When winter finally begins to be felt in California, many people run for the safety and warmth of their homes. They do not want to deal with the cold, wind, rain, and snow. Unfortunately, some people forget about the furry creatures that are under their care. After all, the cold weather affects animals just like it affects us.

Animals that are kept strictly outside should be provided with protection from the wind, rain, and snow. This means having some sort of insulated shelter with an entrance that faces away from the direction that wind usually blows. There should also be some sort of bedding on the ground, such as wood shavings, to help keep them dry and warm. The bedding should be changed or dried regularly.

Outdoor animals will also need more food, and have their water bowl checked constantly to ensure a good supply of water.

The cold also affects animals who spend most of their time indoors as well. After all, most dogs need to go outside to do their business a couple of times a day. If a pet owner wants to take good care of their furry companions this winter season, they should follow some of the tips below.

  • Always accompany dogs outside. Once you are too cold to be outside, bring them inside. This prevent them from getting too cold as well as keeps someone from forgetting about the animal outside.
  • Dry dog paws and bellies thoroughly after they have been outside. They could have snowballs stuck to them, even between their toes. This can lead to frostbite.
  • For dogs who live near frozen roads and sidewalks, drying their feet can also remove road salts, which if linked up in large portions and can cause digestive issues in dogs.
  • Dog breeds with short hair may need protective sweaters when going outside, since their fur is less suited to keeping them warm. However, don’t forget to remove and dry the sweaters after any outside trips. After all, wearing cold and wet clothes can be bad for anyone’s health.
  • Keep a close eye on older animals who have arthritis. The cold can cause them to stiffen up and become tender rapidly. Keep them on a tight leash, close to you to also help prevent any slip or fall injuries to the animal.

Another thing to be aware of in winter, is the fact that outdoors cats will be seeking shelter from the cold. They love to hide in warm engine compartments on vehicles, and don’t always move before the engine is turned on. In order to prevent any harm to an unsuspecting feline, bang on the hood of the car a few times before getting in and starting it up. This should scare them off without hurting them.

The cold weather isn’t always fun to deal with. Just remember that if you don’t want to be out in the cold, your pets probably don’t enjoy it much either. Give them the love and care they need this season to ensure that they stay happy and healthy until spring comes around again.

 

Have A Safe Holiday Season This Year

Have A Safe Holiday Season This Year

Have A Safe Holiday Season This Year

The holiday season is officially here, and many people are getting ready to have some fun at family, friends, or office parties. Everyone celebrates in their own special way, but many celebrations will be including alcohol. If that is the case, then a person should be prepared to get home safely that evening.

Holiday season is all about getting together with people you are close with. Since it’s a celebration, there will likely be a bit of alcohol consumed. If that does happen, the person needs to have a safe ride home since, as everyone knows, driving with alcohol in your system is dangerous and illegal.

In order to avoid getting pulled over, best case scenario, or getting into an accident, worst case scenario, a person should have a designated driver. This can be a someone who has not had any alcohol, or it can be a hired driver. That is the great thing about today’s modern world, it is so easy to get a taxi, Uber, or Lyft to take a person home. Often times, it can be done through an app on the person’s phone.

Drinking and driving is very dangerous, and results in dozens of deaths every single day in the United States.

It is estimated that a person is killed in a drunk driving related accident every 50 minutes. This is a statistic that no one wants to be a part of. Luckily, that can easily be avoided by drinking responsibly, and having a designated driver.

When a person has an assigned designated driver to get them home, they do not have to worry about how much alcohol they are consuming. All they really have to worry about is not giving the people they are with another embarrassing story to talk about for years to come.
 

The Legal Ins And Outs Of Hidden Cameras

The Legal Ins And Outs Of Hidden Cameras

The Legal Ins And Outs Of Hidden Cameras

Hidden cameras have become a surprisingly popular thing in the United States. These days, it seems like nearly everyone has a hidden camera, frequently called a nanny cam, tucked into their house. The question is: are nanny cams legal.

The answer isn’t as black and white as you may think. There are laws governing the recording of other people. However, if you have the nanny cam set up inside your house, even if you don’t tell anyone it’s there, you’re legally allowed to use it.

While you’re legally allowed to record the activities within your home, if you’re doing so in order to keep an eye on guests, babysitters, house sitters, or your neighbors, you need to consult with a good lawyer and find out what the specific laws are in your state and township. For example, there are some rooms you may not be allowed to use the camera, and there are often laws that prohibit the use of hidden cameras to spy on your neighbors. Another example is that many states have laws stating that you can’t set up a hidden camera in parts of the house where the guest expects privacy: namely bedrooms and restrooms.

It’s also important to know why you’re using the hidden cameras. It’s perfectly legal to use the camera to make sure your housekeeper and babysitter are doing their jobs correctly. It’s illegal to use footage gotten off a hidden camera to blackmail someone.

There are many shades of gray when it comes to using hidden cameras outside of the home. Most businesses are allowed to use the cameras both inside their establishment and parking lots.

One of the issues that has recently come up is the legality of hidden cameras that also make audio recordings. In California, the audio recording can only be used if both of the parties know that the conversation is being recorded. Other states that require two party consent include:

  • Florida
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Washington
  • New Hampshire
  • Montana
  • Pennsylvania
  • Connecticut
  • Illinois

It’s important to note that in California, recorded telephone calls also require two party consent. You’re also not allowed to use a phone or hidden camera to deliberately record a conversation that wouldn’t be overheard if you were sitting just a few feet from the speakers.

You are also not allowed to set up hidden cameras in apartments that you’re renting to tenants.

Don’t Pay For A Thief’s Holiday Fun

Don’t Pay For A Thief’s Holiday Fun

Don’t Pay For A Thief’s Holiday Fun

There is no denying that credit cards are very powerful tools. They allow people to pay for things online or in person without actually handing over cash. This helps make wallets lighter and slimmer. Unfortunately, they can be very easy to steal. Some criminals don’t even need to steal the card itself, just get the information from the card.

As the holiday season rolls around, people begin to make more purchases with their credit/debit cards. Sadly, this means thieves become more active as well. A tactic used by some thieves is to tamper with machines that accept credit and debit cards. They install card readers and cameras onto the machines in order to get the information they need to use the card themselves.

If this is something that you want to avoid happening to yourself this holiday season, then you need to learn to identify signs of tampering. Some things to look out for include:

  • When going to use a machine, such as a gas pump, make sure that there are no signs of tampering. You should not be able to open up the machine. In fact, there should be a security seal over the hatch. If that seal is broken, notify the gas station or owner of the machine and use a different one.
  • Check the card reader slot. If the slot feels lose, like it could be pulled off, notify the owner of the machine. A thieve could have placed their own card reader over the machine’s.
  • Another thing to look for with the reader, is to make sure the device is tucked in under the rest of the machine. In other words, the machine would have to be opened to change the reader. If that is not the case, then a thief probably slipped a reader onto the machine.

Lastly, a person should keep an eye on their bank statements during the holiday season. This way if someone does have credit card information, it will be noticed quickly and the card can be replaced before too much damage is done.

Don’t let thieves have a good holiday season at your expense. Be careful of where you use your card and keep an eye on your bank statements this winter.

A Boring Solution To A Big California Problem

A Boring Solution To A Big California Problem

A Boring Solution To A Big California Problem

The city of Los Angeles is known for a lot of different things. Unfortunately one of the more prominent things in LA is its traffic. Trying to get anywhere in Los Angeles, or the Surrounding LA and Orange Counties, can be a real nightmare. At peak times, it can take hours to drive just a few miles. However, that could soon change.

Businessman and Investor Elon Musk has a plan to change that. After being stuck in a terrible LA traffic one day, Musk creating a boring machine to start digging. This lead to the creation of the Boring Company. The plan is to create high-speed tunnels to carry cars from one end of the tunnel to the other. The first test tunnel in Hawthorne is expected to be finished on December 10th, 2018.

The tunnel is expected to work as follows:

  • A car will drive onto a platform at street level.
  • The platform will hold the car in place on top of it.
  • The platform will lower into the tunnel, then travel through the tunnel at speeds of 150 mph.
  • The platform will rise back to street level at the other end of the tunnel.
  • The car will be released and be able to continue on its way.

This all sounds like something out of a sci-fi world, but looks like it may be a very real thing in the near future. The Boring Company already has other deals in place to construct similar tunnels in Chicago, Illinois, Baltimore, and Maryland. There is even a serious proposal to create a tunnel loop to take vehicles to and from Dodger Stadium called the Dugout Loop. If these tunnels do well, they could begin popping up all over California and the rest of the United States.

What are your thoughts on these Boring Company tunnels? Are they the solution LA needs to reduce traffic, or are they just a pipe dream?

Is Shoplifting A Felony?

Is Shoplifting A Felony

Is Shoplifting A Felony

If you know someone who recently got into trouble for shoplifting, you are probably very concerned about him or her. You wonder how much trouble a person can get into for shoplifting. How serious of an offense is it to steal something from a store or other place of business?

Well, the answer to that depends on what was stolen. If the item was something small or inexpensive, then the offense won’t be too serious. However, if something large or multiple things that have a combined total of more than $950, then things will be more serious.

Shoplifting in California is only a misdemeanor offense.

This is because most people do not steal things that are worth more than $950. If a person steals anything that has a combined total less than that, then they will only face a misdemeanor charge.

If the person steals more than $950 worth of items, then he or she could face felony charges. A person also faces felony charges for shoplifting if they have been convicted of felony shoplifting before.

Shoplifting is a serious offense, and can get a person into real trouble. If you know someone who was recently arrested for shoplifting or any other offense, you should bail him or her out of jail. This can be done easily by contacting the professionals at work here at David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia.
