Can You Smoke In Public?

Can You Smoke In Public?

Despite the obvious health concerns that come with smoking, there are still a lot of smokers out there in the world. An estimated 42.1 million people in the United States are smokers. This averages out to roughly 18% of all adults over the age of 18. That is a whole lot of people who still smoke.

The state of California is considered one of the leaders in anti-smoking laws and regulations. If a person violates any of these laws, then they could face fines. This makes it very important for smokers to be aware of all of these laws. A smoker needs to be very careful about where they decide to light up, or they could find themselves in trouble.

You Can’t Smoke Everywhere

Under California law, it is illegal for any person to smoke any tobacco products in an enclosed workplace. This law covers the entire state and cities and counties are not allowed to modify it. This means that is illegal to smoke in any indoor place where people work. This law even applies to people who aren’t employees of the establishment they are currently in, such as patrons at a bar. They may not work there, but other people do, and so they cannot smoke in the bar.

Employers can allow smoking in certain rooms of their building if they ventilate it properly. This means pumping the air in the room directly outside, so as not to harm non-smoking employees. The ventilation system has to meet set state standards.

Hotels and other places that host transient lodging do have some exemptions to this law. Hotels are allowed to permit smoking in up to 65% of their rooms. Up to 25% of the hotel lobby can permit smoking as well. Smoking can be allowed in meeting and banquet halls as long as no food is present in the room.

A general rule of thumb with smoking is that if a non-smoker is present in an area, then a smoker shouldn’t light up. This is because non-smokers have very little to protect themselves from secondhand smoke. This is why the state of California has adopted such strict laws.

A person is caught smoking in a non-smoking area will face a $100 fine for a first-time offense, $200 for a second offense within a year and $500 for a third or subsequent offense within a year.

Cities and counties are also permitted to ban smoking completely within their limits. Smokers should be aware of local smoking ordinances in their city to ensure they don’t get into trouble.

Don’t Litter With Cigarette Butts

Something else for smokers to consider is what they do with their cigarette butts. Despite popular beliefs that cigarette butts are just harmless bits of paper and cotton, they are very harmful to the environment. They contain thousands of chemicals within them, which is why they are considered toxic waste.

Throwing away cigarette butts on the ground is illegal here in California under Penal Code 374. This law makes it illegal to dump waste matter anywhere that isn’t a designated dump. Areas included in this description are:

  • Public and private roads
  • Private property
  • Public parks

The law specifically lists all forms of cigarettes and cigars as types of waste. If a person is caught tossing their cigarette butt onto the ground, they can face infraction charges of illegal dumping. The consequences for this crime are:

  • A fine of $250 to $1,000 for a first-time offense.
  • A fine of $500 to $1,500 for a second-time offense.
  • A fine of $750 to $3,000 for any subsequent offenses.

Be Careful Where You Light Up

Smoking is very unhealthy and a majority of the population chooses not to smoke. As such, they have the right to not breathe in harmful secondhand smoke. This is why smoking is so heavily restricted across the state of California. If a person chooses to smoke, then they need to be aware of both state and local laws. If they aren’t, they could easily earn themselves some nice fines for lighting up in the wrong area or disposing of the cigarette butt on the ground.

What are your thoughts on smoking and California’s laws against smoking?

Should smokers be allowed to light up wherever they want or do you think there should be more restrictions? What about the penalties for smoking in non-smoking areas, are they fair or should they be re-adjusted? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

 

What Counts As Looting In California?

What Counts As Looting In California?

Whenever an emergency strikes, people are bound to panic. This is only natural as systems that people have been able to rely on for their day to day lives begin to shut down. This is exactly what is happening as the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic spreads across the world. In response to this virus, many non-essential systems have been shut down to reduce the spread of the disease.

Combine this with the fact that thousands, if not millions, of people have been panic stockpiling all kinds of resources, making it harder for everyone to get even the essentials, a lot of people are scared. For most people, this just means staying at home and avoiding going into public, which is what everyone should be doing anyway.

Unfortunately, there are people out there that see the deserted shopping centers and decide to use that to their advantage. These people figure that if no one is around to stop them, they can do whatever they want without fear of repercussion. However, that is not the case. Law enforcement agencies are still operating and enforcing the law. If they catch anyone looting, there will be consequences.

California’s Different Looting Laws

California state law defines the act of looting as someone committing second-degree burglary within a county or area that is currently experiencing a state of emergency due to natural or man made disasters. This definition does include the national emergency called in response to the Coronavirus.

The following laws can all be considered looting under California law:

  • Penal Code 459 Burglary
  • Penal Code 484 Petty Theft
  • Penal Code 487 Grand Theft

Burglary is defined as the act of entering a house or any other building with the intent of committing larceny. In other words, burglary is the act of going into a building to steal something. First-degree burglary occurs when a person enters a residential building. Second-degree burglary occurs when a person enters a commercial building.

Petty theft is defined as wrongfully taking someone else’s property that is valued at less than $950. Grand theft is the same, except the value of the items exceeds $950.

The difference between burglary and theft is that burglary is entering a place with the intent to steal something. Theft is the actual act of stealing something. This means that a person may not be charged with theft if they try and fail to steal something, but they could still be charged with burglary for attempting to do so.

The Penalties Of Looting

The penalties for looting are dependent on what particular crime the person committed. When it comes to burglary or grand theft, a person can either be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the facts of the case.

Looting by burglary and looting grand theft have the same consequences. When the crimes are charged as misdemeanors, they come with:

  • Up to 1 year in county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.
  • Misdemeanor probation.
  • Up to 240 hours of community service.

As a felonies, the crimes comes with:

  • 16 months, 2 years or 3 years in county jail.
  • A max fine of $10,000.
  • Felony probation.
  • Up to 240 hours of community service.

Petty theft looting is always a misdemeanor offense and comes with:

  • Up to 6 months in county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.
  • Misdemeanor probation.
  • Up to 80 hours of community service.

Don’t Be A Looter

Stealing is never a good idea. However, doing it during an emergency is especially horrible. People already have enough problems to deal with during an emergency, such as the spreading of a virus. They shouldn’t have to worry about people looting their homes and stores. This is why the act of looting is illegal, and it is taken very seriously.

What are your thoughts on California’s looting laws and looters in general?

Do you think the laws are enough of a deterrent or should the consequences be more severe? Maybe you think the laws are too harsh as is. Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

 

What Is Price Gouging?

What Is Price Gouging?

Anyone who knows about economics and the concept supply and demand knows that as demand goes up and supply struggles to keep up, prices can rise too. The more people want something, and the less of it there is, the more expensive that item becomes. This is something that a lot of people are experiencing as shortages of basic goods abound thanks to the panic caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

As people struggle to get basic necessities, some people are taking advantage of the shortage to make a quick buck. For instance, the prices of hand sanitizer and face masks shot up by roughly 500% on eBay. Similar practices can be found pretty much everywhere due to the virus, and while some people may think it is okay, raising prices like this during an emergency is pretty frowned upon by most people.

Is It Legal?

Here in the state of California, the act of price gouging is made illegal under the Penal Code 396. Under this law, it is illegal for someone to unjustifiably raise the prices of basic goods and services by excessive amounts during a state of emergency. As far as the law is concerned, an excessive amount is 10% or more of a price increase during an emergency compared to the prices before the emergency was declared.

The items that are protected from price gouging are mostly basic household items that families regularly need. Some of the items that are specifically listed under the law include:

  • Food and drink
  • Pet food
  • Toiletries
  • Emergency supplies
  • Diapers
  • Batteries
  • Radios
  • Medical supplies
  • Construction materials
  • Oils and gasoline

Services that could be essential to recovering from a disaster are also protected from price gouging. Some of these services include:

  • Transportation
  • Storage
  • Towing
  • Building repairs
  • Hotel rates

Prices of these goods and services can legally be raised slightly to reflect shortages or an increase in the cost of labor during the emergency. In these instances, the seller or service provider will have to prove that the increased prices were necessary.

The Consequences Of Price Gouging

Penal Code 396 makes the act of price gouging a misdemeanor offense. Any seller or service provider who is caught price gouging their customers will face misdemeanor charges. The penalties for this crime are:

  • Up to 1 year in jail.
  • A max fine of $10,000.

How To Deal With Price Gouging?

Price gouging is monitored and enforced by the California Attorney General and local district attorneys. If a person suspects that they are dealing with price gouging, then they should report the incident to their local district attorney’s office or go to the California Attorney General’s website where there is a form that can be filled out online.

During a state of emergency, such as a global pandemic, no one should have to deal with increased prices on necessary goods and services just so one bad person can make a quick buck. This is why price gouging is a crime here in the state of California.

What Do Co-Signers Do?

What Do Co-Signers Do?

When dealing with bail for the first time, you are bound to run into a couple of terms that you don’t understand. One such term might be co-signers. Co-signers are pretty important when posting bail, but the term doesn’t come up much in day to day life. This can leave some people scratching their heads, luckily Bail Bonds in Concord is here to help out.

Co-signers are people who are willing to sign the contract for the bail bond. These people take responsibility for making sure the payments are made on time and that the person bailed out behaves. If they don’t do that, the person who was bailed out could get re-arrested. Luckily, since there can be multiple co-signers, they can share that responsibility with one another.

Co-signers also help determine what kind of deal a person can get when posting bail. For instance, if a co-signer meets certain requirements, then they can qualify for a 20% discount off the price of the bail bond here at Bail Bonds in Concord. To qualify, one of the co-signers has to:

  • Be a member of the military.
  • Be be a member of AARP.
  • Be be a member of a union.
  • Be be a homeowner.
  • Have a private attorney.

As long as just one of those requirements is met, you can qualify for the discount.

Some of the other benefits that we provide to our clients include:

  • 24/7 Bail Bond Service
  • FREE Consultation
  • 20% Discount
  • Phone approvals
  • 0% Interest Payment Plans
  • No Hidden Fees

Visiting Someone In Jail

Visiting Someone In Jail

When a person has been arrested and locked away, it can be hard for them to stay in contact with loved ones. Some people may choose to visit their loved one in jail so there interaction doesn’t have to be as distant as a phone call. While this is a viable option, it is important to remember that you cannot just walk into any jail and ask to visit a loved one.

The exact requirements vary from jail to jail, but there is usually a bit of paperwork required beforehand. In some jail, inmates have to create a list of people who they would like to visit. If someone isn’t on that list, they can’t come in. At many jails, people who want to visit will have to fill out a visitor application. The jail will use this to determine if they will let the person come to visit.

Each jail has its own set of visiting hours, meaning a person can only visit their loved one during those times. Most items can’t be brought into the jail, including things like purses and jewelry. These sort of items are best left inside the car. You should also be prepared to go through a screening process as you enter the jail. Some jails may screen your car as you drive in, and all of them will screen people as they enter. In some rare instances, this could include a strip search.

People will only be granted access to visit if they have a valid government issued ID with them. There are very few items that a person can bring with them inside, these can include:

  • Eyeglasses, for medical reasons
  • ID
  • One car key
  • Small bills or change for vending machines

Just like all of the other rules with inmate visitations, this list can vary from jail to jail. Some jails do provide lockers to store items in while visiting an inmate.

More and more, jails are starting to allow video visitations. With this, the visit is basically a Skype call, where a person can call in from their home. There is less of a screening process with this method and a person doesn’t have to leave the comforts of their own home while still getting to see their loved one’s face.

When visiting someone in jail, don’t expect to be able to walk right in and say hello. There is a whole process and again, it varies from jail to jail. If you want to visit your loved one in jail, be sure to check out the jail’s website for more information on their visiting guidelines.

What Are Your Rights When You’re Pulled Over?

What Are Your Rights When You’re Pulled Over?

A whole lot of things can happen while a person is driving. One thing that most drivers would prefer to avoid is getting pulled over. Unfortunately, sometimes things happen, and the driver makes a mistake. Sometimes, as far as the driver knows, they didn’t do anything wrong but find themselves getting pulled over anyways.

When a person gets pulled over, it is important for them to remember that they do have rights. These rights help protect a person from an officer who might be abusing their power. If a person’s rights are violated, they can take the matter to court.

Passenger Rights During The Stop

When someone has been pulled over by the police, they have two primary rights:

  • The right to remain silent.
  • The right to be free from unreasonable search and seizures.

The first right is pretty well known thanks to the Miranda Rights, but many people are not fully aware that a person does not have to be arrested for it to come into effect. Even when a person is being stopped by a police officer for a traffic violation, they have the right to remain silent. If a person chooses to do this, they should inform the officer that they are choosing to remain silent. It is also a good idea for the person to give the officer their name.

The 4th Amendment to the Constitution protects everyone from unreasonable searches and seizures. This means that a police officer cannot search a person, their vehicle or even their phone without good reason. If an officer suspects that a person has a weapon on them or contraband such as drugs, then they can search the person and their vehicle. However, officers do need a warrant to search a person’s phone, and they cannot delete anything off of the device.

Both of these rights apply to passengers as well. Passengers can even have an additional right of being able to leave, since it is the driver who got pulled over. However, they need to ask the officer if they are free to go. If they are given permission to leave, they can.

Passenger Rights After The Stop

After a person has been stopped, they have the following rights:

  • The right to challenge the legality of the stop in court.
  • The right to challenge the legality of any searches in court.

If a person feels that their rights were violated during a traffic stop, they should write down as much information as they can. This means writing down the officer’s badge number and their patrol car number. They should also write down which agency they are from. Was the officer with the police, a sheriff or California Highway Patrol (CHP)? If there were witnesses, try to get their contact information. If there were any injuries, the person should take photographs of those injuries. Lastly, the person should file a written complaint with the department’s internal affairs.

If the person is still concerned with how they were treated, they can take the matter to court.

Drivers Have Rights

No driver ever wants to get pulled over, but sometimes things happen. If a driver is pulled over, they need to remember that they do have rights. They can exercise those rights without fear of repercussion. If an officer does infringe on a driver’s rights, that driver can take the matter to court and seek compensation that way.

Just as important as knowing your rights is knowing how to pullover when a law enforcement officer stops you. If you want to know more about how to properly pull over and behave during a traffic stop, click here.

Is Prop 47 Helping Or Hurting California?

Is Prop 47 Helping Or Hurting California?

All the way back in 2014, California voters chose to enact Proposition 47. Prop 47 was billed as a way of making the punishment aspect of law and punishment fairer for many nonviolent offenses. With the passing of this proposition, certain crimes were reduced from felonies to misdemeanors.

By doing this, politicians hoped to reduce the amount of inmates in incarceration and save the state some money. The saved money would then be directed toward different services in an attempt to prevent people from turning to crime in the first place, and help rehabilitate those that had. Unfortunately, after 6 years, it is beginning to look more and more like the idea backfired.

What Prop 47 Was Meant To Do?

Prop 47’s primary concern was dealing with the overcrowding of California’s jail and prison systems. It did this by reducing certain nonviolent offenses from felonies to misdemeanors. Some of these crimes included:

  • Shoplifting
  • Petty theft
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Forgery
  • Passing bad checks
  • Possession of narcotic controlled substances

In 2015, a report authored by one of the co-authors of Prop 47 stated that California’s prison population had been reduced by 13,000, saving the state roughly $150 million. This seems to indicate that Prop 47 succeeded in doing what its authors set out to do.

As far as the saved money going toward programs to help reduce crime and provide drug rehabilitation, the money for that just started going out in 2017. The Board of State and Community Corrections approved to hand out a reported $103 million dollars to just 23 programs that showed the most promise across the state.

What People Are Seeing Happen

There have been several studies on the effects of Prop 47 since its passing. The results of the studies frequently vary on whether the reform helped or harmed the state of California.

Many law enforcement agencies claim that Prop 47 has made it easier for career criminals to get away with crimes. Nowadays, as long as a person steals less than $950, they won’t face any jail time. They can be back on the streets after an arrest in just a few hours, ready to commit more crimes, and that is if the person even gets arrested in the first place.

Many people who have been victims of theft in the state have been shocked to learn how local law enforcement agencies react to the incidents these days. More often than not, police will be slow to respond to reports of petty theft and shoplifting, if they respond at all. This is often due to one of two reasons:

  • They are too busy to deal with what is now a small crime.
  • Catching the thief won’t actually stop the thief.

When a person’s cry for help goes unheard, it breaks their trust in the criminal justice system.

Many police officers and sheriffs view Prop 47 as a get out of jail free card. As long as crooks stay under that $950 threshold, they won’t face any consequences. In at least one instance, a thief was caught going through a store with a calculator to ensure he/she didn’t exceed that magic number.

Residents and law enforcement officers aren’t the only ones noticing the trends. Many retailers, including Target, Rite Aid and CVS are also reporting that incidents of shoplifting in their California stores have increased anywhere from 15 to 50% since the passing of Prop 47 in 2014.

As of 2019, organized retail theft was shown to be on the rise in California. Organized retail theft, for those unaware, is where gangs create an organized business of stealing from retailers and then reselling the stolen goods.

Who Did Prop 47 Really Help?

A study conducted by UC Irvine in 2018 claimed that the increase in crime rates wasn’t caused by Prop 47. The only thing Prop 47 did was “cause less harm and suffering to those charged with crime.” The study used comparisons to other states who had similar trends in crime statistics to back up its claims that the rise in crimes in California wasn’t due to the passing of Prop 47.

While criminals might not be suffering from the effects of Prop 47, many innocent people are. The victims of these increased thefts have taken notice of the fact that their calls for help are getting ignored. While they try to voice their concerns to their local authorities, there is little the police or sheriffs can do until the laws are changed. Prop 47 doesn’t care how many times a person is accused or convicted of a crime, it only cares about the one particular crime.

The Top 20 Safest Cities In California

The Top 20 Safest Cities In California

When people are looking to move, they always want to make sure that the place they are moving to is safe. Figuring out if a particular city is safe, comparing it to other cities, they need to look at a professionally done study.

How The List Was Created

There are several ways that cities can be ranked in safety. Each study conducts itself a little differently than others. However, they all typically have a few similarities. Every study will examine the violent and property crime statistics for each city. What differs is how much they weigh those crimes when calculating the city’s safety.

SafeWise created its list by referencing The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program. UCR is a national program into which cities all over the country report their crime statistics. This gives SafeWise numbers to work with from 2017, which are the most recent numbers to date.

In order to prevent smaller, outlying cities who can have drastically different crime statistics from skewing the data, SafeWise only looked at cities whose populations were over the state median. Basically, they only looked at cities that would be classified as medium or larger within the state.

When ranking the cities, SafeWise chose to prioritize violent crime rates over property crime rates. This is due to the fact that violent crimes can cause physical harm to people, and are therefore typically more concerning than property crimes, which only damage property. While both types of crimes are upsetting, violent crimes are obviously worse than property crimes.

The study compared the violent crime rates per 1,000 people. If there was a tie between two cities with violent crimes, then they ranked the cities by their reported property crimes.

The Top Safest Cities

The top 20 safest cities in California according to SafeWise’s research are as follows:

  1. Danville – Violent Crimes .35 per 1,000, Property Crimes 7.83 per 1,000
  2. Irvine – Violent Crimes .61 per 1,000, Property Crimes 13.16 per 1,000
  3. Rancho Santa Margarita – Violent Crimes .65 per 1,000, Property Crimes 6.67 per 1,000
  4. Yorba Linda – Violent Crimes .65 per 1,000, Property Crimes 10.36 per 1,000
  5. Murrieta – Violent Crimes .71 per 1,000, Property Crimes 14 per 1,000
  6. San Ramon – Violent Crimes .73 per 1,000, Property Crimes 10.48 per 1,000
  7. Rancho Palos Verdes – Violent Crimes .78 per 1,000, Property Crimes 10.48 per 1,000
  8. Folsom – Violent Crimes .82 per 1,000, Property Crimes 15.73 per 1,000
  9. Laguna Niguel – Violent Crimes .82 per 1,000, Property Crimes 8.72 per 1,000
  10. Aliso Viejo – Violent Crimes .85 per 1,000, Property Crimes 7.58 per 1,000
  11. Chino Hills – Violent Crimes .88 per 1,000, Property Crimes 17.14 per 1,000
  12. Eastvale – Violent Crimes .88 per 1,000, Property Crimes 21.13 per 1,000
  13. Lincoln – Violent Crimes .92 per 1,000, Property Crimes 12.67 per 1,000.
  14. Diamond Bar – Violent Crimes 1 per 1,000, Property Crimes 18.30 per 1,000
  15. Temecula – Violent Crimes 1.02 per 1,000, Property Crimes 22.69 per 1,000
  16. Rocklin – Violent Crimes 1.04 per 1,000, Property Crimes 17.81 per 1,000
  17. Mission Viejo – Violent Crimes 1.04 per 1,000, Property Crimes 10 per 1,000
  18. Poway – Violent Crimes 1.15 per 1,000, Property Crimes 11.42 per 1,000
  19. Pleasanton – Violent Crimes 1.17 per 1,000, Property Crimes 19.67 per 1,000
  20. Sunnyvale – Violent Crimes 1.17 per 1,000, Property Crimes 17.31 per 1,000

Find A Safe Place To Call Home

While this list isn’t the only one of its kind, it is one that allows a person to make a more informed decision while looking for a new home. That is all anyone wants. If a person wants to make a truly informed decisions, a person should look at multiple lists to get as much information as they can.

By doing this, a person should be able to make a good choice and find a place to live where they can feel safe.
