Imagine that you are at home when you get a call from a friend or family member asking if you can bond them out of jail. Before you bond your friend or family member out of jail, you should know what entails. Posting bail for someone is often stressful but if you are prepared, it can greatly reduce the amount of stress the process creates.
Most people have had one too many and gotten behind the wheel. In fact, on average, a convicted drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before his or her first arrest. Let’s set the scene. It’s a Friday night and you were at your favorite local watering hole with some friends. You had a couple drinks and you decided to go home. First thing you should always do, is take an Uber, Lyft, taxi, or call a designated driver. This is ALWAYS the safer and cheaper option. However, if you do drive under the influence, you need to be aware of important information.
