Drunk Driving On Halloween

Drunk Driving On Halloween

It’s no secret that getting behind the wheel after you’ve been drinking is a bad idea, yet there are a few nights of the year where driver’s leave their common sense at home and drive home after having one too many. Halloween is such a night.

Why People Drink On Halloween?

Halloween is a festive holiday. A time when lots of people like to cut loose and relax. There are usually lots of parties where the alcohol generally flows. The happy atmosphere combined with the anonymity of wearing a costume makes it easy to cut loose and lose track of how much you’ve had to drink.

T

here are certain holidays that just call for parties, and Halloween is one of those days. While kids are out trick-or-treating in search of candy, adults are out partying with friends. While there will still likely be some candy at these parties, most adults have upgraded to something different. Many adults will be consuming alcohol while having a good time.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this, provided it is done responsibly, which is what most people do. However, there are still far too many people out there who will be consuming alcohol this year, and then getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Due to this fact, don’t be surprised to see a rise in DUI checkpoints on Halloween.

Law enforcement officers will be doing everything in their power to keep everyone safe that night,...

t’s that time of the year again, and people are busily preparing for what custumes to wear this Halloween. Kids are plotting out the best route to get them as much candy as possible, while adults are figuring out which party to go to. However, something else adults should be considering, is who will be driving to the party.

If a person plans on drinking at any Halloween parties, then they need to have a designated driver (DD) or use a ride share service such as Lyft, Uber or even just a taxi. They have to do this because drinking and driving is never a good idea on any day of the year. On Halloween, it is an even worse idea.

On Halloween, kids are out and about trick or treating. This usually continues after the sun goes down...

The Purpose Of California’s Bail Process

The Purpose Of California’s Bail Process

Bail is kind of a strange thing. Since you use it to secure your release from jail while your case winds its way through California’s slow and lengthy legal process, bail can be looked at as the price of your freedom. However, since you’re still required to make all official court appearances and could face prison time if you’re found guilty, you might only be buying your freedom for a short period of time. The judge will also place limits on what you can and can’t do while you’re out on bail so you’re really only using it to purchase a limited amount of freedom.

Since the issue of bail is so complicated, many people wonder exactly what is the purpose of California’s bail process?

What’s In Your Kid’s Halloween Candy?

Every year, as Halloween rolls around, people begin seeing articles about how they can keep their kids safe during the holiday. One of the big topics is being sure to check kids’ Halloween candies for any tampering before allowing them to eat it. Unfortunately, there are people out there who think it’s fun or funny to harm people by messing with their food.

The first step to making sure your child is safe from tampered Halloween candy is to make sure that they don’t eat any of it while they are out trick or treating. Do not let them eat any of the candies until you have been able to examine it under good lighting.

The Reality Of Unemployment Fraud

The Reality Of Unemployment Fraud

Unemployment fraud isn’t new. There have been instances of it dating all the way back to when the system for helping people stay financially solvent after they suddenly lost a job was first created.

The high number of people who were forced to claim unemployment benefits when the COVID-19 pandemic struck the United States, combined with some unexpected unemployment bonuses the government instituted in an attempt to keep the economy running has triggered an interest in unemployment fraud.

Loree Levy, a spokesperson for the California Employment Development Department, recently confirmed that the state is on the lookout for people who are committing unemployment fraud. “We certainly have legitimate PUA claims in California, but we do suspect that a big part of the unusual recent rise in P...

What Happens When The Police Knock On Your Door

What Happens When The Police Knock On Your Door

There is nothing quite as gut-wrenching as opening your front door and finding the police standing on the other side. They never bring good news.

Experiencing a moment of panic and indecision when they ask to be let in is perfectly natural. Questions that will likely run through your mind at this point include:

  • Do they need a search warrant?
  • Should you call a lawyer?
  • Do you have to let them in?
  • Should you shut the door without saying a word?

First, Stay Calm

No matter what happens, it’s in your best interest to stay calm. Losing your temper doesn’t do any good and it could actually make things much more difficult for them.

If They Don’t Have A Warrant

If the police don’t have a warrant, they can ask to search your home, but you don’t have to let them in...

The idea of online school isn’t new. Online schooling has been around for some time and many parents have taken advantage of it. Other parents have thought about it from time to time and briefly considered looking into it but never got around to it.
