California’s Open Container Laws

Riverbank Bail Bonds

In California, driving under the influence is not the only illegal alcohol and vehicle act, but it is the most known. It carries the most serious penalties. It is also very much worth knowing other alcohol and driving related laws, especially the “open container” laws for California.

For drivers who are 21 years or older, it is legal to drive a vehicle with an unopened container of alcohol in the car, even if it is in the front seat.

An unopened container must be absolutely sealed, never opened. So, a sealed bottle of wine never uncorked, a sealed bottle of liquor with the cap never twisted off, and an unopened can of beer, are legal to have in the front seat of the car. Any alcoholic beverages that have been opened must be placed in the trunk of the car.

If a driver is caught with a...

Treat Bail Bond Payments Like You Do Rent

Riverbank Bail Bonds

Choosing to post bail using a bail bond means:

  1. You pay less, overall.
  2. You pay in increments over a custom payment plan.
  3. You have an understanding, accommodating, and helpful bail agent

It does not mean that you should not prioritize bail bond payments. Keep track of what you owe and when. Also keep track of when you have made a payment. Look at your spending habits elsewhere. You may find that you need to re-work your budget, so you can keep up with bail bond payments like you do your rent and utility bills.

Something you will want to keep an eye out for in the mail is your tax return. Hopefully this will be a rather hefty amount of money that you get back from the government. Instead of splurging this on a shopping spree, apply it towards your bail bond payments...

You Need To Change Your Netflix Password Now

If you want to continue using Netflix from here on out, we highly recommend you change your password. Why? It is now considered a federal crime to share your password with others, seriously.

If you really think about it, it makes sense. If you share your Netflix password with other people, you are allowing them to watch movies and TV shows on a subscription-based service without paying the subscription. You are paying for them, but really, the price you are paying is meant for you only, not you and a handful of friends and family members.

While the police probably will not start arresting and prosecuting Netflix-password violators since there are so many people out there who have been sharing their passwords, the police do not have the manpower...

Exercise Caution While Playing Pokémon Go!

Pokémon Go has very rapidly consumed our entire lives and we hate to admit it, but it is so freaking fun. We just want to catch them all!

However, in our quest to do so, there are some things we would like to remind you all to remember while playing.

  • Be aware of your surroundings and be alert at all times. Someone can easily pickpocket you if you are glued to your phone.
  • Be cautious of being lured into a bad situation. Some people have been robbed because they were looking for a Pokémon.
  • Do not drive, bike, or skate while playing. It is illegal to drive and be on your phone anyway.
  • Watch where you are walking. You do not want to accidentally walk into a pole or into traffic.
  • Do not trespass over private property. Trespassing is trespassing, even if there is a Pokémon over there.

You Are Greater Than Your Arrest

Arrests and resulting convictions may go on permanent records, but that permanent record can almost be artificial. It will be on your legal records, but it will not stop you from being offered jobs, buying houses, enrolling in education, or being granted bank loans. What is really going to matter most and allow you to excel in these areas is what happened since your arrest.

With a great attitude and even greater motivation, virtually nothing will bring you down as hard as you were brought down when you were arrested. That was your lowest point, but you have so much room to grow from there. The moment you are bailed out of jail, you are taking a big step in the right direction.

You will be given things in life that you are grateful for. You will overcome this minor mishap...

Turn Bail Bond Negatives Into Positives

We are going to debunk some myths haunting the dreaded bail bond industry and in itself, debunk the myth that the bail bond industry is dreadful. Many people see only negativity, but we are going to show you why there is positivity within it.

    Myth: Bail agents look like big, scary bouncers.
    This is stereotyping. Not all bail agents are large men with sunglasses, thick gold chain jewelry, and long trench coats. Bail agents are professional businessmen and women. Do not be afraid of them, especially if you are relying on them to bail your loved one out of jail. They are friendly and approachable. Do not be shy.

    Myth: Bail agents will try and squeeze as much money out of you as possible.
    A great bail agent, like one from Riverbank Bail Bond Store, will not take advantage of you...
