Don’t Let Road Rage Ruin Your Life

road rage rialto bail bonds

With summer in full swing, people from all over the state of California, and the rest of the country, are busy enjoying summer their vacation. While this is fun for a lot of people, the trips can be a bit taxing. Nobody likes to be stuck in a car for extended periods of time. Doing that can make just about anyone cranky. If this affects the driver, it can easily lead to a bit of road rage.

Pretty much every driver out there assumes they are better than everyone else at driving. Their feelings often get “proven” when another driver makes a bad decision. This can lead to road rage, which if not kept in check, can quickly spiral out of control. One Alabama woman recently learned this fact the hard way.

Road Rage Shooting Incident

In Dodge City, Alabama, couple were driving their car when things got a bit heated between them and another driver. As their road rage grew worse, the woman pulled a gun out. She attempted to shoot the other driver, but missed. She somehow ended up shooting her husband.

The wife was arrested and her husband taken to a local hospital in critical condition after being shot in the head. The wife is facing charges of attempted murder, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment.

Tips to Deal with Road Rage

The fact that people have very little patience when they are tired and stressed is no secret. Everyone gets a bit cranky like this. For many people, they are most cranky and stressed when they are behind the wheel of vehicle. A person has to deal with so many people while driving, and it’s a good chance that they are just as upset. This is why driving creates prime conditions for road rage.

At the end of the day, no one wants to drive while angry. It just isn’t fun. Luckily there are ways to avoid and/or manage road rage.

  • Be kind. A person can prevent road rage from spreading by not shouting at other drivers or using rude gestures.
  • Drive safely. This not only means following the rules of the road, but expecting other drivers to not follow those rules. By being prepared for another driver to make a bad decision, a person is less likely to be caught off guard and become enraged.
  • Plan ahead. While not always possible, planning ahead and leaving at a decent time will make drives less stressful. When a person is running late, they become stressed and more susceptible to road rage.
  • Remain calm. This can be done by taking deep breaths and either listening to calming music or podcasts that get a person thinking about things other than driving. This also includes being understanding of other drivers and recognizing that everyone makes mistakes from time to time.
  • Stay safe. If an angry person ever gets out of their car to talk to a person, that person should make sure their doors are locked and keep on driving. If the other driver begins to follow the person, don’t stop. That person should keep driving and either call the police or drive to the nearest police station.

By doing these things, a person stands a better chance of not getting upset themselves, and not upsetting other drivers as well.

Stay Calm and Safe This Summer

Driving is a big part of everyday life, especially if someone is driving to their vacation. A person should never let road rage ruin their summer vacation, or their life. Things can change in an instant, especially when someone is angry. Don’t let that happen. Stay calm and remember that every other driver on the road is just trying to get to somewhere alive like you are.

Does the ShakeAlert System Work?

shake alert

While people all over the country were celebrating the Fourth of July, Southern California got quite a shocking surprise. A magnitude 6.4 earthquake centered near Ridgecrest, California struck around 10:35 am. People from as far away as Orange County and Las Vegas felt the shaking from the quake. The area remained seismically active for the rest of the day, with another 5.4 quake striking the area around 4:07 am.

This quake was followed by a larger one, 7.1 magnitude, on July 5th.

This was all an important reminder for Californians that larger earthquakes can and will happen here. This drew the usual concern about how people should prepare for earthquakes. Some tips that we have gathered in the past on how to do this can be found here. This also drew some concern as people in redlands wondered why they did not receive an alert from ShakeAlert.

What Is ShakeAlert?

ShakeAlert is an early earthquake warning system meant to alert people to earthquakes before they start shaking an area. The system began working in the fall of 2018. There are thousands of earthquake sensors all over the state of California. When one of the sensors detects a quake, it sends an alert to a research facility that then sends the alert out to anyone who has the app on their phone.

It is important to note that this system does not detect earthquakes before they occur. It simply detects the shaking at the epicenter and alerts surrounding areas. Thanks to modern technology, an earthquake can be detected and an alert send to the surrounding areas almost minute before the shaking reaches those areas.

The technology is still in development is largely being used by researchers to study quakes and fine tune the tech. they hope that they will be able to expand the system and give people greater early warnings. While a warning of less than a minute doesn’t sound like much, it can do a lot for people. This kind of warning can help prevent planes from taking off and landing during the shaking. It can stop people from driving onto bridges or into tunnels. It can help utility companies shut down systems and prevent fires from flaring up because of the quake. Those few seconds can actually make a huge difference.

While this tech is amazing, many people in redlands realized that they never received an alert about the quake.

Why Weren’t LA Citizens Notified?

While many suspect that they didn’t receive an alert simply because the system doesn’t work, they would be wrong. The system worked, however it determined that the quake would not be strong enough to warrant alert residents of LA County to the earthquake.

As it currently stands, the system only alerts LA County residents if either:

  • An earthquake of magnitude 5.0 or stronger strikes within the boundaries of LA County.
  • An earthquake that happened outside of LA County will shake the area with an estimated shaking intensity of 4.

While the recent July 4th earthquake was a magnitude 6.4, it was not located within LA County. The ShakeAlert system estimated that shaking in the LA County are would only be intensity 3. This is understandable from a scientific standpoint, as the difference in shaking between a magnitudes is bigger than people realize. A magnitude 5.0 earthquake is 10 times more violent than a magnitude 3.0.

However, for many people, not being alerted to the shaking before it began worried them, and caused them to question the effectiveness of the ShakeAlert system.

The System Does Work

The thing to take away from this is that the ShakeAlert System does work. It only sends alerts to areas that are about to experience large amounts of shaking. This is likely done to keep the alerts more important. If the system sent out alerts for every single earthquake, which California experiences hundreds of little ones each day, people would begin to ignore the alerts all together. It would become a lot like the story of the boy who cried wolf. No one would believe the system when a big earthquake finally hit.

Instead of getting upset that the system didn’t issue a warning for minor shaking, use this as a reminder to stay prepared. A person should have an exit strategy for any room they spend a lot of time in, whether that be at home or work. It is also a good idea to have some supplies stored away in the event that roads are too damaged to use and stores run out of supplies.

What to do in a Police Chase

call-rialto-bailbonds

Car chases in the movies are exciting and cool, but in real life, getting stuck in the middle of one is dangerous, and nerve wracking. What is the protocol for civilians who are suddenly in the middle of a car chase? This is not something driving school or the DMV teaches people. Do you move to the side of the road because you hear sirens coming your way? Will you have time? Will you have the room to do so?

If a driver has the time and room to move over to the side of the road to let the car chase pass, then they should do so. This does not happen often though, so in all other instances, the driver should continue driving in their lane at the same speed they are going. The police will maneuver around the driver. A driver should never make a lane change if the car chase is too close. They do not accurately know how fast the police cars are coming up behind them, and the police cannot predict the driver’s decision to change lanes. It is much easier for the police if drivers continue driving as they were.


As much as a driver may want to, they should never try and intervene in a car chase to be the hero who helped catch the suspect. It is a dangerous situation because not only are there fast moving vehicles, but they also do not know the type of person or persons inside the vehicle. They may be armed with weapons or drunk. You can get yourself and others injured.


Car chases are all too common in California, especially in Los Angeles where it seems like there is a car chase at least every couple of nights. Car chases are generally thought of as high speed chases. However, there are times when the speed is quite slow, yet the police do not seem to take advantage and speed up to cut them off. This is because the police have tactics and protocols that they must consider in the moment to successfully stop and apprehend the suspect without anyone getting hurt. The majority of police chases end successfully, because the police know what they are doing and the civilians let them do their job without intervening.

Are You Sure You Want to Post That Online?

call-rialto-bailbonds

Employers are not the only people you should be worried about when you think, “I shouldn’t post that on social media.” These days, friends, family, police officers, activists groups, and even the general public need to be taken into consideration. Everyone is on social media and you never know whose hands your content can end up in.

Did you know that many law enforcement agencies now have special units that focus on delving into social media accounts, looking for evidence of criminal activity? People are too trusting, and even boastful, on social media. They over-share. This can end up hurting the individual and benefiting the police. Things like threats, photos with guns, and photos that are taken from a trespassing point of view can be incriminating. The police can use this to issue an arrest.

So the basic lesson here: think twice before posting on social media, and really consider if it can be something to come back and hurt you in the future.

We hope you or a loved one will never need our help, but if you do, please reach out to Rialto Bail Bond Store, for our bail bond services. We are available 24/7, and will get you, or your loved one, bailed out of jail ASAP.

Support Starts With You

call-rialto-bailbonds

The best thing you can do for a loved one when they are in trouble is to help them, not abandon them. Even if you do not know exactly how you are going to help, offer your support and you will be able to figure it out one step at a time. We can tell you the first step is to help bail them out of jail. You may not agree with their actions, but jail time is not the best fit for them. They would not learn anything from you if they are in jail.

In jail, little is offered to inmates. There are very few corrective programs, classes, or counseling opportunities in jail, if any at all. Focused, individual, and/ or passionate guidance is almost nonexistent because well, it is jail. No one really wants to spend their time trying to educate inmates who are unlikely to make a big change for themselves. Advice and help is much more effective from a loving family member or friend at home. This should not be looked at as a time for punishment but instead, time spent together to develop values, relationships, and personal growth. This is personal care, and this is how you can start helping your loved one in need.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

call-rialto-bailbonds

You may not have to like the police, but you sure as heck better respect them. They have tough jobs and hold quite a bit of authority and power. One wrong move can cause them to think twice about you. Don’t want trouble with the police? Just respect them.

Part of respecting police includes knowing how to conduct yourself when you are in their presence. They tell you to put your hands where they can see them: do it. That’s respect. They ask you an innocent question: answer it. In the middle of a heated conversation and they angrily shout at you to calm down: do it. That’s respect. Your cooperation, even if you guys have been yelling at each other, is respect.

What happens if you do not comply with the officer’s requests? They can arrest you. Throw you in jail. Make you face a trial. The situation could have been handled much better, but now this is what you have to go through. You have a right to post bail and if you are allowed it, contact Rialto Bail Bond Store.

Respect for others, including the police, is important. It has a hold on your reputation and can change how things turn out for you. Your best chances at anything, is always led with having respect for yourself and others.
