Don’t Pay For A Thief’s Holiday Fun

Don’t Pay For A Thief’s Holiday Fun

There is no denying that credit cards are very powerful tools. They allow people to pay for things online or in person without actually handing over cash. This helps make wallets lighter and slimmer. Unfortunately, they can be very easy to steal. Some criminals don’t even need to steal the card itself, just get the information from the card.

As the holiday season rolls around, people begin to make more purchases with their credit/debit cards. Sadly, this means thieves become more active as well. A tactic used by some thieves is to tamper with machines that accept credit and debit cards. They install card readers and cameras onto the machines in order to get the information they need to use the card themselves.

If this is something that you want to avoid happening to yourself this holiday season, then you need to learn to identify signs of tampering. Some things to look out for include:

  • When going to use a machine, such as a gas pump, make sure that there are no signs of tampering. You should not be able to open up the machine. In fact, there should be a security seal over the hatch. If that seal is broken, notify the gas station or owner of the machine and use a different one.
  • Check the card reader slot. If the slot feels lose, like it could be pulled off, notify the owner of the machine. A thieve could have placed their own card reader over the machine’s.
  • Another thing to look for with the reader, is to make sure the device is tucked in under the rest of the machine. In other words, the machine would have to be opened to change the reader. If that is not the case, then a thief probably slipped a reader onto the machine.

Lastly, a person should keep an eye on their bank statements during the holiday season. This way if someone does have credit card information, it will be noticed quickly and the card can be replaced before too much damage is done.

Don’t let thieves have a good holiday season at your expense. Be careful of where you use your card and keep an eye on your bank statements this winter.

 

Speeding Is Illegal And Dangerous

Speeding Is Illegal And Dangerous

Everyone has been late to something in their life. Anyone who has experienced this can attest to the fact that it is not fun. This makes a lot of people do whatever they can to avoid running late again in the future. Unfortunately, some people do this by breaking the law.

Speeding doesn’t seem like a big deal to a lot of drivers out there, especially since so many people do it on a daily basis. However, speeding is still illegal because it is dangerous. Speeding is classified as driving faster than what could be considered safe or prudent based on weather, visibility, and traffic.

The faster someone drives, the less time they have to react to an unexpected change or danger. This is what causes accidents.

Speeding is the third most common cause of accidents.

Driving under the influence comes in second, and distracted driving is number one. This gives you a good idea of how dangerous speeding truly is.

Here in California, drivers will face tickets for speeding, which are arguably worse than just getting to their destination a few minutes late. So long as the overall speed was under 100 miles per hour (mph), the ticket prices are as follows:

  • $35 for being 1 to 15 mph over the speed limit.
  • $70 for being 16 to 25 mph over the speed limit.
  • $100 for being 26 mph or more over the limit.

For anyone caught going over 100 mph, they face a max fine of up to $500, as well as a 30 day suspension of their license for a first time offense. If caught speeding like that again, the max fine can be up to $750 with a 6 month license suspension. A third or subsequent offense earns a person a max fine of $1,000 and a 1 year license suspension.

Despite how it may seem, speeding is a very dangerous thing to do. Driving at unsafe speeds can easily cause accidents that can harm or kill people, which is why the act is illegal.

What Could Be Considered Illegal Dumping?

What Could Be Considered Illegal Dumping?

Everyone generates trash that they want to get rid of. Sometimes the item that a person is throwing away is simply broken, or it was just the wrapper that contained the item. No matter the case, the item is no longer needed and is discarded.

Now most people, when they collect too much trash, they either pay to have a waste disposal company pick it up on a weekly basis, or they take it to the dump themselves and pay the dumping fee. However, there are some people out there who do not want to pay to throw away their garbage or other unwanted items.

Instead of making sure that their garbage ends up in a designated dump, they find a barren stretch of road and leave the trash there. Not only can this be unsanitary, but it makes the entire state look bad when more and more people start doing it. What these people may not realize is that dumping trash in random areas is illegal. When caught dumping waste illegally, a person is likely to face hefty fines, especially if they are a repeat offender.

What Constitutes Illegal Dumping In California?

Here in California, the crime of illegally dumping waste matter is defined under Penal Code 374.3. The crime lists several example instances when it is illegal for a person to dump waste matter.

The dumping of waste can be a problem when it is done in one of these 4 locations:

  • On a public or private road.
  • On private property that the public can access through an easement.
  • On private property without the owner’s consent.
  • On public property that isn’t a designated dumping place for garbage.

Under Penal Code 374.3, waste matter is not just trash. The following can all count as illegally dumped waste material:

  • Everyday trash.
  • Construction materials.
  • Yard trimmings.
  • Animal carcasses.
  • Any object likely to cause harm to someone.
  • Any object likely to cause a traffic accident.

This is just a simplified version of everything that the Penal Code lists. It even lists things such as cigarettes and matches. Basically, if an item can be left behind, then it can be considered as illegally dumped waste.

What Are The Penalties Of Illegal Dumping?

The act of illegally dumping waste matter is an infraction level offense. This means that a person caught breaking this law will not face jail time. However, they will face some hefty fines. This is especially true if the person continues to dump things illegally.

  • For a first time offense of illegal dumping, a person faces a fine of anywhere from $250 to $1,000.
  • A second time offense earns a person a fine from $500 to $1,500.
  • Any subsequent offense earns a person a fine anywhere from $750 to $3,000.

While those fines can be bad enough on their own, they may not come alone. For instance, these fines will double if any of the illegally dumped matter included used vehicle tires. In addition to the above fines, additional fines can be added on that are based on how long the illegally dumped material sat there. Depending on the situation, a person can also be charged with vandalism and trespassing, which would include their own penalties as well.

If the dumped material was in large enough quantities that they could only come from commercial business, then the crime falls under Penal Code 374.3(h), which is illegally dumping commercial qualities. This is a misdemeanor level offense with drastically increased fines.

Illegal Dumping Just Isn’t Worth It

Basically, dumping is something that everyone should take seriously. It is not a crime that person wants to commit just to avoid a few dump fees. It isn’t worth it. The fines will definitely cost more than it would to just pay a waste disposal company.

If a person is looking to throw away a large item that will not fit in their regular trash receptacle, they may be able to call either their city or their waste disposal company. Some cities and companies allow people to schedule large pickups of trash to make disposal possible.

If a person finds illegally dumped waste, or witnesses someone in the act of illegally dumping waste, they should report it to local authorities. If the person witnesses the act, they should take down the following information to give to the proper authorities:

  • Date, time, and location of incident.
  • Description of vehicle and license plate number.
  • Description of person(s) dumping.
  • The items/materials being dumped.

Depending on where the person is, they should report the incident to either the city police, local police, or Environmental Services. If everyone follows dumping laws, and reported incidents of illegal dumping, then the entire state would be a lot cleaner. That is something that everyone would enjoy.

 

Fake Bomb Threats, Real Consequences

Fake Bomb Threats, Real Consequences

Most people realize that knowingly reporting a false crime is against the law. Doing so wastes law enforcement time and resources. It is the equivalent of sending police officers on a wild goose chase. Anyone who knowingly reports a false crime can face criminal charges, which can vary dependent on the circumstances.

Recently, a woman from Santa Clarita learned this the hard way. For a week, the 54-year-old woman went to different businesses leaving notes claiming there was a bomb. These note, naturally, caused a lot of panic. Local law enforcement officers took the threats very seriously and acted accordingly.

Luckily, no bombs were found at any of the locations. However, this was still a very serious problems. The notes caused lots of panic and wasted the valuable time of law enforcement officers. This lead to an immediate investigation. On October 21st, LA County Sheriff’s Officers arrested a 54-year-old woman and charged her with felony hoax bomb threat and felony criminal threats.

While there may not have been any bombs at any of the locations, the panic caused by the notes was very real. Law enforcement agencies take bomb threats as seriously as they take threats against schools. It does not matter if the person was only joking, they caused real panic which is a crime.

 

Can You Drive While High?

Can You Drive While High?

At the start of 2018, California made it legal for marijuana to be sold from licensed dispensaries. This allowed people to consume marijuana recreationally, much in the same way that alcohol is allowed to be used. While this excited many people, some failed to realize some of the implications of the new law.

The biggest factor of the law, is that while people are allowed to use marijuana recreationally, they still need to be responsible. Many of the new rules regarding the usage of marijuana are comparable to the laws around the drinking of alcohol. This includes the rule that a person cannot legally drive a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If a person is caught driving while under the influence of marijuana, they will likely face DUI charges. Many people relate this charge to driving while drunk, but it actually covers all forms of driving under the influence of any substance. First time penalties for a DUI include:

  • Up to 6 months in jail.
  • Up to a $1,000 fine.
  • Needing to take a DUI course.
  • Having a driver’s license suspended.

The consequences go up for repeat offenders or for drivers who hurt or killed someone.

Just because using marijuana is now legal in California, it is not okay for a person to drive while high. Just like alcohol, marijuana can impair a driver’s senses and impede their reaction time. This makes the driver far more likely to cause an accident, which is something no one wants to deal with. That is why it is best to never drive while high.
