Most people out there recognize the fact that driving while drunk is a very bad idea. While a person is drunk, their mind isn’t what it normally is, meaning they are more likely to make costly mistakes. This is why it is illegal to drive while drunk all over the country.
Here in California, the penalties for committing DUI include:
- Some form of probation.
- Up to one year in county jail.
- Fines up to $1,000.
- Suspended or revoked driver’s license.
- Needing to attend DUI school.
- Paying possible restitutions.
These all seem like pretty bad penalties to deal with for most people. However, it is not scary enough for some people considering they still decide to drive drunk. What these people realize is that the cost of the DUI is a lot more expensive than just a $1,000 fine. There are all sorts of costs to consider, including:
- Towing and storage fees for the vehicle roughly $650.
- DUI classes cost money, roughly $650.
- Attorney fees cost a couple thousand dollars.
- Driver’s license reinstatement costs $100.
- Insurance rate hikes, can average around $40,000 over 13 years.
- Restitutions for anyone who was hurt can cost several thousands.
Even a single DUI offense can be incredibly expensive. This is just another reason why a person should never drink and drive.
The thought of bailing someone out of jail is not one that crosses a person’s mind unless they suddenly find themselves needing to bail out a loved one. This is usually due to the fact that people don’t want to even imagine the idea that someone they know might get arrested. While this may work out for some people, not everyone is lucky enough to never need to post bail in their life.
The fact of the matter is, thousands of people are arrested every single day in California alone.

New Year’s Eve is arguably one of the biggest party nights of the year. Everyone is staying up late waiting to ring the New Year in with flair. All of this partying has a tendency to lead to a lot of drinking. Unfortunately, this leads to a lot of people drinking and driving. In order to prevent accidents, many law enforcement agencies will setup DUI checkpoints.
DUI checkpoints may look intimidating, but they are nothing to worry about. After all, they are there to help keep the roads safe for everyone. So long as the person who is driving has not been drinking, they have nothing to worry about.
When a person drives up to a DUI checkpoint, they will likely be instructed to wait until an officer is available to talk to them. Once an officer is ready, they will wave the car forward. From there, the officer will ask the driver a few questions:
- Where are you coming from?
- Where are you going?
- Have you been drinking?
The officer will also ask to see driver’s license and registration.
As long as there are no signs that the driver has been drinking or consuming marijuana, then the officer will allow the driver to continue to their destination.
If the officer suspects that the driver has consumed alcohol, then the driver will be asked to pull over to the side where another officer will conduct a field sobriety test. If the driver fails that, then they could be ticketed, fined, and will likely have to wait for someone to come pick them up.
The whole point of DUI checkpoints is to keep drunk drivers off of the road. They increase in frequency around holidays that involve a lot of partying. That is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise if a driver finds themselves at a DUI checkpoint this New Year’s Eve.
Stay Safe Everyone and Happy New Year!
Anyone who has a pet knows how fun they are to be around. Often times, pet owners would prefer to spend time at home with their furry companion rather than deal with people. They often fantasize about being able to take their pet to work with them, just to make the day more bearable. Unfortunately, taking pets everywhere with them isn’t always a good idea.
Pets don’t always understand human customs. This can lead to them misbehaving in the most inopportune times, which is why they aren’t allowed in certain places. One town in Ohio has just outlawed pets from one area that many people are all too happy to have pets.
A new city ordinance in Mantua, Ohio looks to crackdown on distracted driving by making it illegal for a person to drive with a pet in their lap. There is no denying that pets can be distracting at times with their cute little faces and fluffy bodies. Unfortunately for them, driving is a time when people cannot pay attention to them.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 9 people die every single day due to distracted driving.
Sadly, having a pet in your lap while driving can be very distracting. They can restrict a drivers’ movements and take their attention away from the important task at hand. A driver needs to keep their focus on the road as much as possible, which is why Mantua enacted this law. Now, local police officers will be able to ticket drivers caught driving in this very distracting way.
As much as we love our pets, they can get in the way at times. They may not mean to, but it does happen. This is especially true when it comes to driving. That is why it is best to either leave the pet at home, or have them sit in a separate part of the car.
The state of California is known for being pretty forward thinking when it comes to several things, including going green.
Recently, the state of California took another step toward making the state greener by requiring all new homes to be powered by solar.
The California Building Standards Commission voted on the measure in early December and it passed unanimously.
The goal of the new measure is to make California a greener state that is much less reliant on energy generated from fossil fuels. Every new house, starting in 2020, will be required to have solar panels. The panels will have to produce enough energy to provide for the entire house or makeup for all of the electricity and natural gas that the residence consumed over the course of the year.
Opponents of the measure were concerned with how this could negatively affect housing construction in the future. The new measure is expected to raise the cost of building a home by roughly $10,000. Most of that money, about 85%, would go towards implementing the solar panels. The rest would likely go towards making the home more energy efficient.
According to the executive director of the energy commission, there will be two ways for homeowners to reduce the upfront costs of the solar panels. They can either lease the solar panels or sign a power purchase agreement that pays for the electricity generated, but not the panels themselves.
What do you think of California’s latest attempt to go green? Is this new measure a good one, or is it too much for prospective homeowners?

Trash is always a bit of a problem, and anyone who has driven on California’s roadways can confirm that. The state’s roads are littered with rubbish that people have simply abandoned there. It happens all of the time, and in many cases, people get away with it. Due to the perceived lack of consequences for dumping trash on the side of the road, many people believe there are no consequences at all. However, that is not the case.
Here in the state of California, it is illegal to dump trash on any property that is not designated as a waste disposal facility.
This is illegal under California Penal Code 374.3. Under this law, a person cannot leave their garbage whereever they please, like the side of the road. If caught doing so, a person will face consequences.
First time offenders will face a fine anywhere between $250 and $1,000. A second time offense will earn a person an increase rate anywhere between $500 and $1,500. A third or subsequent offense will earn a person fines between $750 and $3,000 dollars. If the person was caught dumping tires illegally, these fines would be doubled. The dumping of large quantities of waste earn a person large fines.
Aside from regular trash, this law also covers illegally dumping large amounts of rocks, concrete, asphalt, or dirt. People who dump large quantities of waste that could only come from a commercial business face even greater fines.
The state of California takes illegal dumping very seriously.
If a person is caught illegally leaving trash on the side of the road, or on someone else’s property, they will face some pretty hefty fines. It is far better to pay the dump fees, than trying to get around them and ending up needing to pay $1,000 for dumping the garbage illegally.
