How To Choose A Pet Sitter

How To Choose A Pet Sitter

As much as we would like to, there are times when we simply can’t take our dogs with us when we go somewhere. Reasons for not bringing your pet along with you include, you didn’t get pet-friendly lodging, you’re on a trip that simply isn’t conducive to having your dog along, you’re going to be around people who are allergic to dogs, the amount of traveling you’re doing would be too much for your dog.

Since you aren’t able to bring your dog with you, you’ll have to find a pet sitter.

Do not wait until the last minute to find a dog sitter. Start looking as soon as possible. The sooner you start looking for a good pet sitter, the better the odds become that you’ll find one that both you and your dog like.

When you initially start talking to pet sitters, make sure you cons...

The Benefits Connected To Using Modesto Bail Bonds

The Benefits Connected To Using Modesto Bail Bonds

Many people think bail is only a few thousand dollars. The truth is that the median bail is about $50,000, far more than the average person can afford. That’s where we come into the picture. In exchange for a ten percent fee, we’ll cover the entire price of your bail. That means that if your bail is set at $50,000, all you have to do is come up with $5,000.

Not having to pay the full $50,000 is just one of the benefits you’ll enjoy when you decide to use Modesto Bail Bonds rather than posting the bail yourself.

Experience Helps

One of the things many people find is that posting bail, even a small amount of bail, is often overwhelming. The more bail you owe, the more overwhelming the experience becomes. Here at Modesto Bail Bonds we have over thirty years of experience...

Driving On A Suspended California Driver’s License

Driving On A Suspended California Driver’s License

While you might consider driving to be a necessity, you need to understand that the state of California doesn’t agree with you. As far as they are concerned, driving is a privilege. To continue driving, you have to follow specific rules, if you don’t adhere to the rules, the state will suspend your driver’s license.

Reasons your California drivers license might be suspended include:

  • DUI convictions
  • Failing to pay traffic tickets
  • A history of bad driving decisions that resulted in a high number of points

Some people have even lost their California driver’s license for non-driving-related issues. The most common non-driving reason for a suspended license is failing to pay child support.

A surprising number of people who have had their license suspended to try to carry on as if ...

What To Do If Your Neighbor’s Christmas Decorations Are Over The Top

What To Do If Your Neighbor’s Christmas Decorations Are Over The Top

The holiday season is here. For many of us, that means breaking up the average, boring scenery with decorations that depict your favorite part of the holiday. Most of us love seeing how creative our neighbors are and will even sometimes engage in holiday decoration contests where you try to see who can upstage whom.

For the most part, holiday decorations are fun and everyone enjoys them but there are always exceptions. Sometimes a neighbor will go too far and instead of being a source of joy, the holiday decorations are actually an annoyance.

It’s important to know how to respond when your neighbor’s holiday decorating goes too far.

The first thing you should do is remind yourself that the holiday season is relatively short...

Bail During The Holidays

Bail During The Holidays

The holiday season is upon us. For most of us, it’s a time of love and celebration. The problem is that holiday plans don’t always go off without a hitch and sometimes a loved one is arrested during the holidays.

Getting arrested during the holidays does more than kill the festive mood. The fact that it’s a holiday means additional stress. Between federal/state days off and staff requesting vacation time leaving everyone shorthanded, the judicial process slows down over the holidays, which means it takes even longer to process cases.

While the courts might move slower during this time of year, Modesto Bail Bonds doesn’t. We understand that when you get arrested, you want to be released from jail as quickly as possible...

Most Common Reasons People Are Arrested During The Holiday Season

Most Common Reasons People Are Arrested During The Holiday Season

The holidays are here. For most of us, that means spending time with friends and family members we love. This is a time when we make good memories and spread love.

Unfortunately, not all of us will enjoy the holiday season. Some studies indicate that crime rates increase during the holiday season. There are a few different reasons for the surge of crime. First, people have time off work which gives them more time to get into trouble. Second, many people who don’t usually overindulge will often misjudge how much alcohol they’ve consumed. The increased alcohol content lowers inhibitions and results in them doing things they’d never have considered if they were sober. The third reason crime rates increase during the holiday season is because money is often tight.

Police have noticed th...

Consequences Of Being Caught With A Fake ID

Consequences Of Being Caught With A Fake ID

California has strict laws when it comes to the use of fake IDs. According to California’s Penal Code 470b PC, it’s not technically illegal to have a fake ID in your possession, but the minute you use that fake ID for anything like gaining access to a club or trying to purchase a drink, you’re breaking the law.

California’s Penal Code 470b PC states that: “Every person who displays or causes or permits to be displayed or has in his or her possession any driver’s license or identification card of the type enumerated in Section 470a with the intent that the driver’s license or identification card be used to facilitate the commission of any forgery, is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, or by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 117...

Distracted Walking In California

Distracted Walking In California

Everyone is familiar with distracted driving tickets, but few of us have ever heard of distracted walking laws. If you’re wondering if that’s even a real thing you’re not alone.

Rest assured, not only is distracted walking a viable concern, but one California city, Montclair, has already passed a distracted walking law. In April 2018, the city’s distracted walking law officially went into effect. Once that happened, anyone caught using their cell phone while walking across the street was subjected to a $100 fine.

It seems like a silly rule, but if you take a few minutes watching people walking on the sidewalk and you can see why distracted walking is a concern. These days, people are completely glued to their phones and often unaware of what is happening around them...

California’s Views On Illegal Pets

California’s Views On Illegal Pets

If you think that as long as you’re responsible for their care, you can own any type of pet you want, you’re wrong. California has specific laws that restrict what types of pets you’re legally allowed to own.

Monkeys

As much as you might like the idea of having a pet monkey, as long you live in California, that little dream cannot come true. The only people who are allowed to own a monkey in California are individuals/organizations who have received special permits and those aren’t easy to get.

Hedgehogs

There is a great deal of confusion about hedgehogs in California. The problem is that while many states do allow people to own hedgehogs, California doesn’t...
