The Fast and the Furious is Cool, but Street Racing is Illegal

The eighth installment of the popular street racing franchise The Fast and the Furious is finally out in theaters. The movies are entertaining to watch, guilty pleasure or not, but what you see on the big screen is not what you should see in real life on the streets.

A speed contest, street racing, or drag racing, is an illegal exhibition when two or more vehicles race against each other on public streets and highways. In many cases, a clock is used to record the times. Such an activity threatens the safety of the public, not to mention the very drivers in those cars.

Benefits to Using Bail Bonds

Deciding on whether or not you should hire a bail bond company can be difficult. There are a lot of things to consider. However, when you call Fresno Bail Bond Store, the only issue you should have is who will be picking your loved one up from jail. Here are 2 of the biggest benefits to using bail bonds:
