The Dangers Of Street Racing In California

Modesto Bail Bonds

Street racing has definitely become more popular in recent years thanks to a number of movies and video games alike. Street racing can be very dangerous to participate in in real life and is against the law in California.

Some people may think that street racing is just a bit of harmless fun, but they would be wrong. These people fail to take into account all of the lives they are putting in harm’s way. When someone is racing through the streets, they are driving at a high rate of speed and can drive erratically in an attempt to avoid other drivers. This creates an unsafe environment for innocent bystanders who have no idea the race is even taking place.

New Driving Laws In California – 2017 Edition

Modesto Bail Bonds

There are a couple of new driving laws you are going to want to know about if you are a Californian. They involve cell phone use and are very closely related to the existing laws.

The old laws had a loophole where drivers would hold their cell phone in their hand while driving because they were using their GPS. The old law never stated the phone had to be mounted to the vehicle. The new laws that are now in effect require the phone to be mounted in certain locations, the lower right corner or the lower left corner of the windshield or onto the center console. A cell phone may not be attached to the middle of the windshield because it is obstructing clear view. In addition, drivers may use one finger to conduct a single swipe or tap on the screen.

Another new driving-related law more clear...

DUI Checkpoint Happenings

Modesto Bail Bonds

If you are driving at night and you come upon a section of a street that is coned off, has extra lights, and more police officers than normal, and they are not responding to a situation, it is likely a DUI checkpoint. Unless you are actually driving while intoxicated at the moment you will not have anything to worry about when you are motioned to pull over to their coned off area.

The officer will ask where you are going, if you have been drinking, and if so, how much. If everything checks out, you will be free to keep going to your destination. Those who are found under the influence will have to sit at their on-site Drunk Tank to sober up. Worst case scenario is that the driver would be arrested, but that is usually under the more extreme circumstances.
