Is Raising Speed Limits A Good Idea?

Is Raising Speed Limits A Good Idea?

Speed limits are something that drivers deal with every single time they get behind the wheel of their vehicle. Some drivers follow the posted speed limits, while others prefer to view them as suggestions. It is not uncommon in California for a driver to be going the speed limit on freeways and get dirty looks, amongst other things, from other drivers for doing so.

These speeding drivers would probably prefer to have the speed limits on the roads raised so they could drive faster without having to worry about getting a ticket. However, doing so may not provide the answer they are looking for. The state of Michigan recently increased the speed limits on rural sections of freeway. So far, this has led to an increase in problems.

Raising The Speed Limit Can Lead To More Accidents

Back in 2017, Michigan voters chose to raise the speed limits along over 600 miles of rural freeways up 5 mph from 70 mph to 75 mph. This new speed limit wasn’t that much faster than the previous one, and it was only applied to sections of roadway that were deemed safe enough for that rate of travel. Unfortunately, this slight increase in speed has resulted in more accidents and more injuries.

A traffic study for the year of 2018, the first full year in which the new speed limits were posted, found that the roads with the higher speed limits saw a 17.2% increase in car crashes. This is compared with the rest of the state, which only had a 3.4% increase in crashes. Due to this increase in crashes, there has also been a rise in injuries. Roads with the raised limits saw an 18.9% rise in injuries due to accidents while the entire of the state only saw a 0.9% increase.

The study also found that the average speeds on these roads were around 75 mph. However, roughly 40% of drivers were driving over 80 mph, which is up 30% from 2016.

The roads that received the higher speed limits were selected because they were deemed the safest for those speeds, and yet they have seen a drastic increase in accidents and injuries.

It is well documented throughout many studies that increased speeds of travel lead to more accidents and more deadly accidents. However, this is only one year’s worth of data and other states who have raised speed limits have also seen mixed statistics. Some states didn’t see large spikes in accidents while others did. In many instances, it depended on the weather that year and how many drivers were on the road.

California Speeding Law

Due to the increased risk of getting into a car accident at higher speeds, California has set most of its speed limits at 65 mph with a few rural freeways getting up to 70 mph. Still, people driving at 80 mph is not uncommon here in the state. If these reckless drivers are caught they will receive a speeding ticket.

Under Vehicle Code 22350, a person caught speeding will receive a ticket, can have their license suspended, receive points on their driving record, and be held responsible for any accidents caused by their speeding. The cost of the ticket depends on how fast the driver was going.

If the total speed is under 100 mph, the driver will face:

  • $35 for 1 to 15 mph over the limit.
  • $70 for 16 to 25 mph over the limit.
  • $100 for 26 mph and higher over the limit.

If the total speed is over 100 mph, then the driver will face:

  • $500 for a first offense and a 30 day license suspension.
  • $750 for a second offense in 3 years and a 6 month license suspension.
  • $1,000 for a third offense in 5 years and a 1 year license suspension.

Speeding Is Dangerous

Basic physics shows how the faster an object is moving, the harder it is to stop. This is why when cars crash at higher speeds, the wrecks are more destructive and deadly. Speeding is dangerous. Speed limits for roadways are carefully considered before they are posted. Drivers should follow those limits in order to reduce the chances of getting into a bad accident.

Aside from just getting into a bad accident, the act of speeding can earn a person a ticket and make it so they are held responsible for the accident. This means they could be stuck paying for any damages caused and any medical bills that might need to be covered.

What do you think about the state of Michigan’s decision to raise speed limits on some roads by 5 mph?

Will it only cause more trouble or will things level off after drivers get used to the new speeds? What about California’s take on speed limits and speeding? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

 

When Should You Report Suspicious Activity?

When Should You Report Suspicious Activity?

The goal of law enforcement officers is to ensure that people follow the law and to keep people safe. Unfortunately, they can’t do anything unless they see the act or someone informs them of it. This is why law enforcement agencies always ask people to report any suspicious or criminal activity. Doing so allows them to enforce the law and help out people in need.

This is exactly what happened in Palm Beach, Florida when one person heard screams for help coming from a neighbor’s house. Officers quickly responded to the call, prepared to rescue someone in danger. However, it is safe to assume they had no idea what they were in for when the call came in.

Who Needed Help?

On December 29th, 2019 someone was minding her business at home when she began to hear screams from a woman. The woman was asking for help and to be let out. Upon hearing the screams, the neighbor did the right thing and called the police. She told them what she heard and officers rushed to the scene as quick as they could.

When officers arrived at the house where the screams were reported to be coming from, they found the homeowner in his driveway working on a car. The officers approached the man and when they informed him of why they were there, he laughed and offered to get the screamer. The homeowner went into his backyard and returned a few moments later holding a green parrot. This earned a laugh from many of the officers at the scene.

As it turns out, the homeowner has a 40-year-old parrot named Rambo. While he had been working on his wife’s brakes, he put Rambo into an outdoor cage in the backyard where the parrot liked to talk, sing and scream. When the man was a kid, he taught the parrot to say: “Help, let me out,” when the parrot still lived in a cage.

After seeing that there was no criminal activity, the officers left the scene. The man later introduced his neighbor, the one who called the police, to Rambo. They both had a good laugh over the incident.

See Something, Say Something

The Department of Homeland Security has a program called See Something, Say Something. The program is meant to encourage people to report criminal and suspicious activity that they witness to their local law enforcement. They encourage people to use the 5W’s when making a report to the local authorities.

The 5W’s are:

  • Who did you see?
  • What did you see?
  • When did you see it?
  • Where did it occur?
  • Why is it suspicious?

If a person is able to provide this information to the police or local sheriffs with this information, law enforcement should be able to deal with the situation.

Always Report Suspicious Activity

Even though the 5W’s refer to seeing something, this does apply to hearing things as well. This is exactly what the neighbor did in Palm Beach, Florida. She thought she heard someone in trouble and did the right thing by reporting it. In this instance, luckily, no one was actually in trouble. Even though no one got in trouble, it is better to be safe than sorry.

It is never a crime to report something that a person truly thinks is suspicious or a crime. So, if a person ever sees or hears something that they think is suspicious, they should always report it to their local authorities.

 

What Is A Special Needs Registry?

What Is A Special Needs Registry?

Pretty much everyone out there is aware of that fact that each person is unique. Some people are more than capable of handling life on their own. Then there are some people who need more constant help and guidance. This extra care can be needed for any number of reasons from a person having autism to a person suffering from dementia.

People with these diseases, or others like them, need special care. These people need constant supervision to ensure their health and safety. This kind of care can be hard to find, especially if a person is not prepared to give it. If they wander off on their own, they can get into serious, life threatening, trouble. Luckily, there is a solution that seems to be working well.

The Problem

When someone with special needs wanders off or goes missing, time is of the essence. If the missing person is not found quickly, then they can get into a situation that threatens their health and/or safety. No one wants them to get hurt, so people have to act fast. Unfortunately, typical law enforcement operations can take a lot of time to gain traction.

This delay is due to the fact that officers need to speak with family members and caretakers of the person to get information about the missing person. Then they have to return to the station to create a missing person flyer and give it out to all agents in the area. Once that is done, officers will finally be able to get to looking for the person. This wastes a lot of valuable time.

The Solution

The city of Santa Clarita, California has created a solution to this problem that has been working well within the community for the past few years. The City, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s, Santa Clarita Autism Asperger’s Network and local school districts all came together to create the Special Needs Registry.

Anyone with the following conditions can be registered on the list by family members:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Dementia
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Down Syndrome
  • Epilepsy

The Registry is a free service where family members can register their loved one with relevant information about the special needs person. Some of the information the registry requires includes:

  • Photograph of the person.
  • Description of the person.
  • The person’s contact information.
  • Important medical information.
  • Known places that the person likes to visit.
  • Safety and behavioral concerns.
  • Helpful tips for interacting with the person.

Once a person fills out this information on the Registry, they can rest a little easier. If the special needs person ever disappears, the police will have instant access to all of the information they need to help locate the missing person. This speeds up the recovery process and helps keep people in need out of trouble.

The registry can be accessed online, making it much easier for people to register their loved ones on it. The information held on the site can be accessed by officers in the field, and the site automatically creates a missing person flyer that can be posted on social media sites.

While the information is kept online, it is kept private. Access to the information is restricted to that of the person who uploaded the information, emergency service personnel and the special education departments within the local school districts when applicable.

It Works

Since the program’s enhancing and rebuilding in 2015, which brought it into the modern age by making it an online service, it has seen a lot of success in locating and rescuing individuals with special needs within the city of Santa Clarita. People may have been slow in registering their loved ones, but once several incidents were resolved quickly, thanks to the registry, the program quickly gained support.

With this new tool, the local sheriff’s department has had huge success in quickly locating and safely interacting with the city’s special needs population. Now the city is equipped to handle any scenario involving one of their special needs citizens.

Tips For Dealing With Door To Door Scams

Tips For Dealing With Door To Door Scams

For most people, the safest and most relaxing place to be is within the walls of their own home. There, they are isolated from the rest of the world in safety. They can rest easy and recharge before having to venture outside once again. When someone intrudes on the space it can be a bit upsetting. This is especially true if the intruder is up to no good.

In today’s modern world, a lot of scammers have taken to the internet to trick and con people. Most people are aware of this fact. However, some scammers out there prefer to stick to more old fashioned methods. Door to door scams do still occur and it is important for people to be aware of this fact.

Since there are so many different scams out there, it is important for a person to learn to spot the warning signs of something being a scam. This way, no matter what type of scam they might be dealing with, they will be able to recognize the con for what it is and avoid it.

Preferred Targets For Scams

When it comes to door to door scams, there is one age group that falls victim to it more than all the others. People over the age of 60 are more likely to be targeted by, and fall victim to, these types of scams. This is due to the fact that Baby Boomers were raised to be more trusting of people and polite towards everyone. They are also the main age group that is home during the day. These are traits that scammers love to exploit in order to get their foot in the door.

When a scammer comes to the door, someone in this age group is more likely to answer the door to an unexpected guest. Meanwhile, people in later generations are more likely to ignore the knock at the door if they weren’t expecting anyone. Similarly, Baby Boomers are less likely to close the door on someone once they begin talking to them. Other generations have no problems closing the door in someone’s face.

Common Scams And Warning Signs

There are primarily two types of door to door scams that a person needs to be wary of:

  • Someone ‘selling’ a product or service.
  • Someone distracting the person so an accomplice can break into the house.

When it comes to selling a product or service, many scammers will dress up to play the part. They will put on uniforms and claim to be from a specific, often trusted, company. Some may even display fake badges. The goal of these types of scams is to convince the victim to pay money, or provide credit card information, for a product or service that will never be issued or delivered.

With the other type of scam, the person knocking at the door is just the distraction. He or she just wants to hold the victim’s attention, maybe even get them out of the house and into the yard, as someone breaks into the house and steals anything of value.

Just because someone looks the part or displays a badge does not mean they are legitimate. This is especially true when they knock unexpectedly on a door. Most legit companies do not send workers door to door to drum up business because they have more important things to do. When it comes to payment, no legit company will demand payment upfront, in cash. Being aggressive toward clients is a sure fire way to get bad reviews.

Tips For Avoiding Scams

The following are some tips to help identify and avoid door to door scams.

  • Always ask to see identification.
  • Always keep doors locked, even when home.
  • Ask the person to leave their information and come back next week, giving enough time to research them.
  • Be wary of people asking for payment upfront.
  • Call the company of unexpected service workers to determine if they are legit.
  • Don’t respond to unsolicited offers of service.
  • Don’t step outside with unsolicited workers when home alone.
  • Never admit to living or being alone.
  • Never invite unexpected service workers inside.
  • Never pay in cash for door to door services.
  • Report suspicious activity to local law enforcement.
  • Tell neighbors about the suspicious activity to help keep them alert too.

Don’t Get Scammed At Your Door

No one likes getting scammed, especially if the scammer comes to their front door. Home is where a person is supposed to be safe, and getting conned at the front door can make a person feel very unsafe.

While there may be dozens upon dozens of different door to door scams out there, they all have a tendency to follow the same patterns. This makes them easily identifiable, which in turn makes it easier for regular people to avoid getting conned on their own doorstep.

Have you ever encountered a scammer on your doorstep before?

Do you have extra tips for dealing with door to door scams that didn’t make this list? If so, share them in the comments down below and help others stay safe while at home.

 

What To Do About Stray Animals

What To Do About Stray Animals

Most pet owners are very good at what they do and truly love the animal in their care. All they want is what is best for their furry companion. Unfortunately, not everyone is like that. Some people get animals simply to have one, and once they realize how much work and money it takes to properly care for an animal, they abandon it. Sometimes the people move and don’t want to take the animal with it.

There are all kinds of ways that an animal can end up as a stray. When people encounter stray animals on the street, they aren’t always sure what to do. Do they just ignore the animal, but what if it walks up to them? Should they report the animal to animal control? An animal lover may want to try and help the poor critter. However, doing so could get a person hurt. This is why it is so important for a person to know what to do when encountering a stray animal.

How To Handle Stray Animals

When it comes to dealing with stray animals, a person needs to be cautious, they never know how an animal will behave. Some animals living on the street may be kind, others may be far more aggressive. While rare, some strays may even be carrying diseases such as rabies.

Experts recommend that people should never approach unfamiliar animals. Instead, when encountering an animal for the first time, a person should remain calm, still and quiet. Never run away or make loud noise. Doing so could scare the animal and make it more aggressive. If the animal approaches the person, they should let it sniff them and avoid making direct eye contact.

Never approach an animal that is eating, sleeping or caring for babies as they can be more defensive and aggressive in these situations.

If the animal knocks the person to the ground, then they need to curl up into a ball and cover their ears and neck.

If an animal is behaving strangely or aggressively, they should report it to animal control. Alert them of what the animal looks like and where it is located so the professionals can try to deal with it.

California Animal Abuse Laws

Here in California, a pet owner is expected to take care of their animal. Most people think of abuse as actively hurting someone or something. However, as far as the state of California is concerned, animal abuse also includes neglecting the animal. This means that if a person abandons their animal, they could face consequences under the state’s animal abuse law.

Penal Code 597 can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the facts of the case and the person’s criminal record. As a misdemeanor, the crime comes with:

  • Up to 1 year in jail.
  • A max fine of $20,000.

A felony charge comes with:

  • 16 months, 2 years, or 3 years in state prison.
  • A max fine of $20,000.

Don’t Abandon Animals

The proper thing for a person to do who no longer wants an animal is to either try to rehome it or give it to an animal shelter. While trying to rehome the animal requires more work, it is the cheaper option. Just try reaching out to friends and family members to see if they, or anyone they know, is looking for an animal. Also try posting about the animal on social media accounts.

If that fails, then a person should look into surrendering an animal to a shelter. This does cost some money, but at least the animal will be cared for and safe.

When it comes to approaching stray animals, it is recommended that people don’t do that. Just give the animal its space and if it does approach a person, they should be cautious.

What do you think of California’s animal abuse laws and their consequences?

Do they match, or do the consequences need to be readjusted? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

 

What Are The Consequences Of Hit And Run?

What Are The Consequences Of Hit And Run?

The last thing that anyone wants to happen while driving is getting into an accident. Not only are accidents very dangerous to a person’s health and safety, they can be very costly as well. Whoever is at fault, or responsible for, the accident can end up paying a whole lot of money in damages and reparations. Due to this, a lot of people are afraid to get into an accident, which has led to problems.

Some people are so afraid of getting into trouble for causing an accident, that they will flee the scene of an accident. This is called hit and run and it is very illegal. When a person is involved in a car accident, they are expected to stay at the scene and do everything that they can to help anyone who may be hurt. Failing to do so can result in severe consequences for the person that ran.

What Is Hit And Run In California?

In the state of California, the crime of hit and run is laid out under two laws, Vehicle Code 20001 and Vehicle Code 20002. Vehicle Code 20001 focuses on when people are injured or killed while Vehicle Code 20002 focuses on when property is damaged. Under these laws, a driver is required to stop their vehicle and administer aid whenever they are involved in a car accident that causes property damage or injury.

This means that after an accident, any driver who was involved in it must stop as soon as reasonably possible. They then must apply aid to any injured persons. They are also required provide personal and contact information to the owners of any damaged property, to any injured person or to any law enforcement agents on the scene. Lastly, they need to notify emergency services as soon as possible.

If a driver fails to do any of this, they could be charged with hit and run, even if they stopped and administered aid. A person could also be accused of committing hit and run for hitting a parked car and not leaving any contact information for the owner.

Hit And Run Consequences

When a person commits hit and run, they become guilty, whether or not they were actually responsible for causing the accident. This means that running from the scene of the accident can make things a whole lot worse than just staying at the scene and applying aid where needed.

Under Vehicle Code 20002, the consequences of hit and run that results in property damage is a misdemeanor offense. It comes with:

  • Up to 6 months in jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.

Under Vehicle Code 20001, hit and run that results in injury or death is a wobbler offense, meaning it can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the facts of the case. When charged as a misdemeanor, a person faces:

  • Up to 1 year in jail.
  • A fine from $1,000 to $10,000.
  • Misdemeanor probation.

A felony charge can come with:

  • Up to 4 years in jail.
  • A fine from $1,000 to $10,000.
  • Felony probation.

What To Do If You Witness A Hit And Run

When people witness an accident, especially a hit and run, they may feel compelled to chase after the fleeing vehicle. However, the larger priority is to take care of the victims of the accident. They could be severely hurt and their health and wellbeing is the priority.

After witnessing a hit and run, immediately call 911 and try to provide as much information about the fleeing vehicle as possible to the operator. This includes things like:

  • The license plate number.
  • The vehicle’s make and model.
  • Description of the damage on the vehicle.
  • Which direction the vehicle fled.
  • Location, time, and cause of the accident.

The police can use this information to track down the suspect on their own.

Don’t Run From An Accident

Getting into an accident can be terrifying, and most people would prefer to not deal with scary things. However, running from the scene of an accident instantly makes a person guilty. Fleeing the scene makes things a whole lot worse for a person, which is why it is best to stay and do everything to help out after an accident.

What do you think of California’s laws on hit and run?

Are they too strict or not harsh enough? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.
