In California, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense. And drunk driving arrests are most common on Independence Day. According to past statistics, more cases of beer are sold the 4th of July than any other holiday, even St. Patrick’s Day. Fatal crashes spike. An estimated 34 million people will be driving across the country on Uncle Sam’s birthday, and more cops are on the road as well.
Local law enforcement, as well as California Highway Patrol, will be setting up sobriety checkpoints and taking an aggressive stance on any form of alleged impairment. Most states have relatively fluid driving under the influence (DUI) laws, allowing a police officer to make a judgment call and take you in, even if you do not have 0.08% blood alcohol content (are legally drunk).
A DUI conviction carries heavy penalties and fines, and can ruin your employment and send your car insurance rates skyrocketing. There’s no time to waste after an arrest: if you find yourself being handcuffed and transported to jail after a friend’s barbecue this July 4th, or while driving home from the Annual Big Bay Boom, here’s a name to remember: Balboa Bail Bonds
What Should You Do After a DUI Arrest?
Contact a defense attorney to start building your case. Then, make a phone call to Balboa Bail Bonds. Getting out of jail quickly allows you to work on your defense, surrounded by your support group of family and friends. Trying to function while you are incarcerated, especially if this is your first time, is confusing and traumatic.
Likewise, if your loved one—like a son, a daughter, or a sibling—is arrested, you can call us on their behalf. We offer flexible, interest-free payment plans and complimentary mobile services, if you are unable to visit our office. We are affordable, fast, and easy to work with (we bail many clients out with no money down and typically no collateral); and every time you deal with Balboa, you’ll be treated with respect. This is our community, and we genuinely care about its people. All our agents speak Spanish, and we’ll spend as much time on the phone with you as you need, walking you through your options.
When Can You Call Balboa Bail Bonds?
Knocking on midnight? We’re still here. No matter what time you call us, Balboa Bail Bonds has a live person on the line and a mission: to get you home. Our experienced bail agents have been doing this for over a decade and have handled thousands of cases. There are no rookies on our team. You can’t throw us, and you can’t surprise us. We’ll guide you through the bail bonds process quickly and confidentially, providing a professional yet flexible service.
Everyone makes mistakes, but jail isn’t limited to those who have committed a crime. Sometimes, what the police see as suspicious behavior, or a case of mistaken identity, or a miscommunication, is enough to put a person in San Diego Central Jail or Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility. Our office is located only two blocks away from the Central Jail, and we have agents in the field near all correctional facilities in San Diego County. We also serve Orange and Riverside Counties.
Being in the discomfort of a holding cell, surrounded by callous jailers and officers, is no place to spend America’s birthday. When you call us, we’ll be there. Fast.
