You Weren’t Expecting to Need Bail

Bail is not something that most people plan on needing. After all, to plan on needing bail would be to plan on getting arrested. Since no one ever does that, no one is ever really prepared to deal with bail. Luckily, there are professionals out there who know everything about bail, and are willing to share that knowledge with clients.

Since 1987, Carls Bail Bonds has been helping Californians rescue their friends and family members from jail. Our bail agents are some of the very best in the state of California. They know everything about the bail process and are more than happy to help clients deal with bail. When you come to us for bail help, you will not have to face this alone.

Aside from just helping you post bail, our Carls Bail Bonds also works to make the bail as affordable as possible. For starters, our bail bonds only cost 10% of the bail that they are for. In addition, we provide discounts for clients who qualify. To get 20% off the price of the bail bond, one of the co-signers needs to:

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

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

Needing bail isn’t something that anyone ever really plans on. However, this does not mean that a person can’t post bail. All it means is that they will need a little help. Carls Bail Bonds can provide that help. For over 30 years we have made posting bail both easy and affordable for Californians. Let us do the same for you.

This Shouldn’t Be Shared Online

This Shouldn’t Be Shared Online

This Shouldn’t Be Shared Online

Most people are aware of the fact that they shouldn’t post everything they record online. Doing so can result in oversharing, which can give people too much information about the person sharing the info. That is something that no person ever wants to do.

For the most part when it comes to oversharing, most people are concerned with posting personal information that could give would-be thieves an opportunity. The thieves could use personal info to steal a person’s identity, or to determine where a person lives and when they are home. However, there is another aspect that people shouldn’t post online.

This same things shouldn’t be posted online due to the fact that it could give thieves too much information, but not in the way that a person may expect.

Don’t Alert a Thief to the Their Capture

An ever growing problem with the digital age, is the rise of porch pirates. These crooks look for delivered packages sitting “unclaimed” on front porches. They take these packages and run, getting themselves a nice little mystery gift at the cost of the victim. The rise in this illegal trend has led to a rise in front porch cameras.

These cameras allow people to keep an eye on their porches, and by extent, their packages. This way, when some porch pirate decides to steal one of their packages, the person has some images of the person that they can turn over to the proper authorities. What a person should not do, is post the footage or images online to social media accounts.

While the idea of posting the images online might sound like a good idea and a great way to boast that the thief is going to get caught, it can be a bad idea. Doing so would be another instance of oversharing that could potentially harm the person sharing the information. If the post gains popularity and spreads, the thief could see it and know that the authorities are on to them. From there, the thief can know to go into hiding and to avoid authorities, thus making their jobs more difficult.

Essentially, if a person wants to ensure that their porch pirate gets captured, then they should only share any photos or videos of the event in question with the proper authorities. This allows them to use the captured information to track down the suspect, without alerting the thief to the fact that they are on to him or her.

Just Give the Footage to the Police

While catching anyone in the act of something wrong can feel very satisfying, especially for the victim of a crime, sharing that victory online too soon can cause problems. Instead, a person should just give the information to the police. Let them use it to track the thief down and once he or she is captured, then the videos and pictures can be posted online.

Have you ever had a package stolen from your porch? Were the police able to help you track down the criminal in question?

Did Someone Just Break-In?

Did Someone Just Break-In?

Did Someone Just Break-In?

When it comes to homes, people are very protective, after all, homes aren’t easy to achieve and are each person’s own little kingdom. At home, people are safe and able to store everything that is important to them. No one ever wants anything bad to happen to their home, or to have some random person enter it. Unfortunately, that can’t always be prevented.

Home invasions are nightmare scenarios for most individuals. As mentioned earlier, homes are meant to be safe havens for people, and to have some stranger break in is truly terrifying. There are so many scary stories of home invasions out there. However, there are also, surprisingly, some funny ones as well.

In the following two stories, what could have been something terrible, turned out to be pretty entertaining, once the event passed.

The Robotic Robber

Earlier this year, a woman was home alone in Washington County, Oregon when she heard some strange noises coming from her bathroom. When she investigated, she could see shadows moving underneath the door. She immediately suspected that a burglar had entered her home and was attempting to rob her.

She immediately called the police. Officers surrounded the house and had canines ready to go. They entered the building with guns drawn, unsure of what to expect as they ordered the occupant of the bathroom to come out with their hands up. They received no response from the hiding thief other than continued rustling.

After 15 minutes being on the premises, the officers entered the bathroom, ready to confront the intruder, only to discover a very trapped Roomba Robotic Vacuum. The Roomba must have accidently shut the door on itself, trapping it within the room. The official report states that officers witnessed “a very thorough vacuuming job being done by a Roomba.”

Oh, Deer

More recently, a Texas woman locked herself in her closet when she heard breaking glass and strange footsteps in her home. Separated from her gun, the woman called the police, informing them that someone had broken into her home. Officers rushed to her home.

From within her closet, the woman heard as the first officer arrived and ordered the intruder to come out with his hands up. When no response came from the intruder, the officer called for backup. Once it arrived, the officer entered the home with guns drawn. They tracked down the source of the noise and discovered that the intruder was not a robber, just a very lost and confused deer.

The tense situation quickly diffused for the officers once they realized there was no immediate threat. They then worked to herd the deer out the door, which in its frightened state, caused a good amount of damage to the woman’s home.

The entire incident was captured by police body cams, and then released on social media. The short video is about as chaotic and entertaining as one might expect. Even the officers were able to laugh about the incident and released a wanted poster for a “Jane Doe aka StandDown It’sADeer.”

How to Deal with a Break-In

A home invasion is something that no one ever wants to deal with. In many instances, most don’t want to even imagine what might happen in the event of a home invasion. However, they should consider it from time to time. The best way to prepare for any emergency is to have a contingency plan in place. A person should know how to get out the house and go to a neighbor’s if need be, and where any weapons, or possible weapons are, within the home in case they need to defend themselves. Simply by having a plan in place, a person will be a lot calmer in the event of a break-in.

Another good tip is for a person to always have a cellphone and their car keys close to their bed while they sleep. The phone will allow them to dial 911 and the panic button on key fobs is a good way to make a lot of noise and scare off thieves.

In most instances, crooks are looking for easy scores. They are looking for empty homes, they do not want to encounter the homeowner. They don’t want to interact or attack anyone if they can avoid it.

Hopefully, if a person ever does find themselves in a home invasion scenario, it turns out to be more like one of the two incidents above, and not a real home invasion. That is something no homeowner ever wants to experience.

Do you have any stories that might have been scary at the time, but turned out to be funny in hindsight?

Driverless Trucks Hit the Roads between Dallas and Phoenix

Driverless Trucks Hit the Roads between Dallas and Phoenix

Driverless Trucks Hit the Roads between Dallas and Phoenix

As technology advances every single day, ideas that were once thought of as science fiction are inching closer and closer to becoming real. For proof of this fact, look no further than a smartphone and all of the different apps on it. Being able to walk around with a phone/computer/calculator/internet explorer was the stuff of dreams just a few decades ago. Every single day, technology is moving forward.

One piece of technology that many people are excited for, is autonomous driving, otherwise known as self-driving cars. Self-driving cars stand a chance of reducing traffic, or at the very least, making it easier to deal with. These cars could theoretically communicate with one another, and perform better than any human driver could, thereby eliminating the potential for human error.

As tech and car companies both work on bringing this sci-fi idea to life, the United States Postal Service (USPS) is planning on giving it a test run.

USPS Looking for Better Alternatives

USPS has its work cut out for it. The Postal Service is responsible for delivering mail all over the country, and is always looking for ways to improve its service while cutting down costs. Currently, the Postal Service spends around $4 billion to truck mail from one depot to another. Shipping the mail via truck is costly, time consuming, and creates more pollution. The hope of switching to driverless shipping is that it will reduce all of this.

The nation is currently experiencing a shortage of truck drivers as less and less people want to perform the job, making hiring long haul truck drivers more expensive. Autonomous trucks are expected to be much cheaper.

Currently, there are laws regulating how much truckers can drive in a single day. These were implemented to protect truckers, and to help keep them healthy and alert behind the wheels of their vehicles. While this was a good thing, it also means that drive lengths are increased. Since autonomous trucks wouldn’t be held to those regulations, they could make a coast-to-coast run in 2 days, instead of the industry standard 5 days.

Lastly, newer vehicles are just built to be cleaner than older vehicles. Plus, with a computer in control of a vehicle, it is far more likely to make better decisions about how much it uses the gas pedal. These autonomous vehicles will theoretically be more fuel efficient, thereby reducing emissions.

The Future of Mail Delivery

With the potential benefits laid out like that, it is easy to see why companies, and the USPS, are so interested in autonomous vehicles. Currently, the USPS is performing a 2 week trial run of autonomous trucks making deliveries between Dallas, Texas and Phoenix, Arizona. The trucks are built and operated by San Diego based company TuSimple.

While the trucks will be driving themselves, they will not be doing so alone. A safety driver will be present at all times, just in case someone needs to take control of the vehicle. There will also be an engineer present in the passenger seat to monitor the vehicle and make repairs if necessary.

TuSimple states that other drivers on the road between Phoenix and Dallas likely won’t even notice that the trucks are autonomous. The vehicles are designed to exhibit proper driving, meaning they use turn signals and obey speed limits. Plus, the trucks aren’t heavily marked as being autonomous, since the company has found that either distracts other drivers, or causes them to try to mess with the truck in some way.

Could Autonomous Trucks Be a Reality Soon?

If this trial goes well, autonomous truck deliveries between distribution centers could become commonplace in the next years. This could help speed up the mail delivery process, which is something everyone would enjoy. However, don’t expect to see autonomous delivery trucks driving through neighborhoods anytime soon, as that technology is a little more complicated, and further out from becoming a reality.

Still, if this trial does go well, then it is just another step toward autonomous vehicles. Just imagine being able to get into a vehicle and not having to drive it. There would be no more worry about what other drivers are doing or how to get over in time for the off-ramp. Getting from point A to point B would be a lot easier, and safer, for everyone.

What do you think of autonomous vehicles? Are they the future, or will they remain a product of science fiction? Is the technology ready for this kind of work?

Could a Scammer Really Steal Your Home?

Could a Scammer Really Steal Your Home?

There are a lot of things in life that don’t come easy. This includes things like money, a home, and happiness. Often times, these things are usually pretty worth the effort they take to earn. Unfortunately, since they do require so much effort to get, there are many people out there that would much rather take a shortcut to get these things.

These people are often called scammers. Instead of working to get something for themselves, scammers attempt to take things from others by manipulating their intended victims. Yet another scam going around involves scammers stealing the rights to a home out from underneath the homeowner.

They Target Lightly Used Property

Owning a home is a big accomplishment, and the building itself is very important to the people living within it. No one ever wants to lose their home, which is why people do everything they can to protect their home. Unfortunately, some scammers have figured out a way to take ownership of a home from the actual owners.

The scam starts with the scammer finding some property to steal. Typically, the scammers will target places like rentals, vacation homes, or vacant pieces of property. They like this kind of property because it is not as carefully watched over as a person’s home would be.

Once a target has been selected, the scammer locates the owner and steals their identity by taking the victim’s personal information. This can easily be done online, or by stealing the victim’s mail.

From there, the scammer acquires documents to transfer property. They fill out the paperwork to transfer the property from the real owner to themselves and forge the victim’s signature. They then file the paperwork with the proper authorities. Once they have done that, the property belongs to the scammer in the eyes of the law. It would likely take a lengthy court battle to get the property back, if at all.

Keep an Eye Out for This Scam

Some of the best ways to avoid this scam include, shredding documents once they are no longer needed, and never personal information. This includes over the phone, through email, or online with social media accounts.

Another good tip is to keep an eye on mail. Counties usually send copies documents about property to the property in question. If a person sees documents about their property that they don’t recognize, they should look into it right away, especially if the document has a signature of theirs that doesn’t look right. Lastly, property owners should be very wary if they suddenly stop receiving any utility bills or property tax forms for the property. That can be a major red flag.

Don’t Get Scammed

No one ever wants to lose their home, or any of their property for that matter. They spend a lot of time, money, and effort to get it. Unfortunately, there are plenty of scammers out there looking to take advantage of hardworking people. In order to avoid getting scammed, people need to stay vigilant, and trust their guts when they suspect that something might be wrong. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry.

What are some of the oddest scams people have tried to pull on you?
