There is also the Thunder Cruise-In on Lancaster Boulevard on Friday night from 6 to 9pm, which kicks off the whole event. Hundreds of motorcycles, and classic cars will be cruising around the boulevard in a glorious parade. There will be live music, and food from many of the local restaurants on the boulevard.

If you are interested in attending this spectacular event, mark your calendars for June 9th, 10th, and 11th. The Thunder Cruise-In will be held on the 9th on Lancaster Boulevard. The main event will be held at SGT. Steve Owen Memorial Park on Saturday the 10th, and Sunday the 11th. On Saturday, the festivities will start at 2pm and go until 11pm with tickets costing $15 for everyone over the age of 10. Sunday, the event starts at 10am and goes until 5pm.

What Is Considered a Nonviolent Crime with Prop 57?

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Last year, as part of ongoing efforts to reduce overcrowding of the state prison system, Californians voted Proposition 57 into law. Prop 57 increased parole and good behavior opportunities for convicted, nonviolent, felons and allowed judges, not prosecutors, to determine if a juvenile would be tried as an adult.

The main goal of this proposition was try to reduce the amount of inmates within the state prison system. This goal would be achieved by releasing convicted criminals earlier than originally intended.

Of course, Prop 57 states that this new law will only apply to felons of nonviolent crimes, which makes it sound all right. However, nowhere in California law does it state what constitutes a nonviolent crime. Only 23 felonies are classified as violent crimes, meaning anything else could be considered nonviolent. This means that crimes such as domestic violence and some rape crimes, are technically viewed as nonviolent by the law in California.

This is very problematic for many people. If you ask anyone who was a victim of such a crime, they would tell you that it was very violent. Unfortunately, California law would not currently stand with the victim on this.

Thankfully, some lawmakers in Sacramento are fighting to change this. A new bill has been introduced that would redefine over 20 additional crimes as violent offenses.

However, the problem still stands that convicted felons will be getting released early, after only serving a portion of their sentences.


Prop 57 is yet another law that is working to remove the punishment from crime and punishment. If criminals know that they will not be punished for committing their crimes, why would they ever consider stopping?


You May Know Someone Who has Once Been Arrested

Getting arrested could easily make you think that your life, as you know it, is over. However, take a few minutes to think about the people you know. Friends, family, coworkers, other acquaintances, and even strangers you see regularly at the grocery store or gym; how well do you know all of these people? Someone in your larger circle may have once been in this exact situation, getting arrested, but look at where they are now. They are obviously no longer in jail. They have a successful job. They have a beautiful family. They are happy.

Take this thought and use it as inspiration and hope. This will be you once again, and hopefully soon. Until then, you will have to deal with the current situation and any consequences. It is not going to be the easiest thing to handle, but you can handle it. Your loved ones will support you.

Bailing out of jail is a critical beginning step to taking control of the larger situation. A bail bond will get you out of jail fast and affordably. Once you are bailed out of jail, you can return to live at home, go to work, and spend time with loved ones.

When Getting Arrested Might Actually Be Funny

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Usually, getting arrested is no laughing matter, but maybe one day it will be both a laughing matter and a “are you serious?” matter. We are talking about a wild case where a person is arrested for committing the most outrageous, silly crimes in California. These crimes come from laws that really leave us scratching our heads. Here are some, for your enjoyment.

  • Any car that does not have a driver cannot go faster than 60 miles per hour. 30 miles per hour without a driver is okay then?
  • Women may not drive in a housecoat. It must be so unfashionable.
  • Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship. Did someone make sure to tell the animals that?
  • Ice cream may not be eaten while standing on the sidewalk. Sorry, kids.
  • One may not use one’s own restroom if the window is open. So you better have a good air freshener!

These are just a handful of silly laws; trust us, the list goes on and on and on. The police have much more important work to be concerned with than these silly, harmless laws, so you probably will not get in trouble if you use your restroom while the window is open.

So there you have it. A law that, if broken and the perpetrator ends up arrested, the arrest can be a bit funny. If you, or a loved one, are ever arrested for breaking a silly law or a serious one, count on San Bernardino Bail Bond Store to bail you out of jail.

New Driving Laws in California – 2017 Edition

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

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 clearly defines the legality of motorcycle lane-splitting in California. The old laws never clearly outlined the rules. Now, motorcycles are not allowed to travel 50-60+ miles per hour through standstill traffic. They must be going slower.

There are a handful of other new driving-related laws, but these are two of the more prominent ones that apply to everyone on the road. The goal is always to keep the roads safe.

The Cost of a First-Time DUI in California

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

$45,000. That is the low end of the average cost of what a first time DUI can cost you in California. Knowing this, wouldn’t you rather pay $20 for a Lyft or Uber home from the bar? Let’s break that figure down.

  • Insurance – This is the highest DUI related cost. Insurance will go up year after year after a DUI.
  • Towing and Storage – Your car is impounded and to get it back, it is going to cost over $500.
  • DUI classes – This will cost around the same as the towing and storage.
  • Fines and Attorney Fees – You will be going to court for that DUI, so you will want a good lawyer to help protect, and fight for, you. This can go up a few thousand dollars.
  • Driver’s License – After a DUI, your license is revoked. It costs about $100 to get it back, once you are allowed to get it back.

Again, $45,000 is the low end of the DUI spectrum. Other things we did not account for, but could be a factor, is the cost to fix your vehicle and the cost of hospital bills if your DUI resulted in an accident. Each DUI will also cost more than one before. Do yourself a favor and just pay for a cab ride.

Crimes, Defined

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

The criminal justice system categorizes crimes into one of three groups: infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. Each category involves a different set of justice system procedures and possible consequences for the accused. If you are worried that the law might eventually catch up to you or a loved one, you can prepare yourself by learning the different categories of crimes.

Infractions – The least serious crimes.

  • No jail time as a consequence, only fines and/ or community service.
  • Not considered a “criminal” charge and will not appear on criminal record. However, they do appear on driving and court records.
  • Crimes are non-serious, such as speeding tickets, running a red light, and trespassing.
  • The accused does not have the right to a trial by jury; a judge alone will determine the outcome.

Misdemeanors – Semi-serious crimes.

  • Consequences include one year in jail and fines.
  • The accused has the right to a trial by jury and the right to a lawyer.
  • Trial length is based on complexity of case and can be months long.
  • Charge does appear on criminal record.
  • Crimes include petty theft and being publicly intoxicated.

Felonies – Serious crimes.

  • Consequences include a minimum of one year in jail, fines, and/ or probation.
  • The accused has the right to a trial by jury and the right to a lawyer.
  • Trial length is based on complexity of case and can be months, even years long.
  • Charge does appear on criminal record.
  • Crimes include kidnapping and other serious crimes where threat is involved.

The thought of getting arrested should convince you to adjust any bad habits you might have and to not risk your life.
