Bail Amounts for Traffic Violations
Many traffic violations don’t result in jail time and only require relatively small fines that a person can easily produce. However, there are some traffic violations that can get a person arrested and require considerable bail amounts to obtain pretrial release from the county jail.
Traffic Violation Bail Amounts
VC 2800.1(a.b.) - Fleeing a Peace Officer: $25,000 bail
VC 2800.2(a) - Evading a Peace Officer With Disregard for Safety: $35,000 bail

VC 23109 – Street Racing: $10,000 and up
Many times when a person is charged with a crime or given a traffic violation ticket, more than one violation is included at once. In many California counties, a person must pay the bail amount for all charges at once, before they will be allowed out of jail on pretrial release. These bail amounts can add up to much more than a person or a family can easily come up with.

Street Racing Bail Bonds
Despite the popularity of street racing in pop culture, especially in movies like The Fast & The Furious franchise, street racing is a dangerous sport and is illegal everywhere in the State of California. Not only is it illegal, but if you get caught street racing, you can face serious jail time and steep fines.
Engaging in street racing can get you thrown in jail. VC 23109 outlines the crimes related to street racing and the penalties it can incur. Many times more than one violation is charged at a time and all bail amounts must be paid in order to be released from jail ahead of trial.
Bail amounts for street racing include:
VC 23109(a) – Engaging in Speed Contests: $10,000 bail
VC 23109(b) – Abetting Speed Contests: $1,000 bail
VC 23109(c) – Engaging in or Abetting Exhibition of Speed: $1,000 bail
VC 23109(d) – Placing Barricades or Obstructions: $1,000 bail
VC 23109(e)(2) – Engaging in Speed Contests & Causing Injury: $15,000 bail
VC 23109(f)(1) – Engaging in Speed Contest With Prior: $15,000 bail
VC 23109(f)(2) - Engaging in Speed Contests & Causing Injury With Prior: $20,000 bail
VC 23109.1 – Engaging in Speed Contest – Specific Injury: $15,000 bail
The legal definition of street racing is that a person willingly engages in a “speed contest” that takes place on a public road.
Usually, when someone is charged with street racing, they will find themselves facing more than one charge. In some counties in California, like Los Angeles County, a person must add up all of the bail amounts for every charge they face, including any enhancements, and pay the full amount of all bail added together, before they can “bail out” of jail.
Bail can be expensive, especially when more than one charge is involved. But, failing to pay bail means you will have to sit in jail until your case can be tried. If you or someone you care about is in jail for street racing, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-2245 for street racing bail bonds.

DUI in California
While driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol is illegal throughout the State of California, Orange County has some of the toughest laws for punishing those convicted of DUI charges.
The drunk driving laws for California are found in Vehicle Code Section 23152 and Vehicle Code section 23153, which says that:
- 23152(a) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of alcohol to operate a vehicle
- 23152(b) It is illegal for anyone who has a blood alcohol content exceeding 0.08% or more to operate a vehicle.
- 23152(e) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of drugs to operate a vehicle.
- 23152(f) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of any combination of drugs or alcohol to operate a vehicle.
In many cases, both the 23152(a) and 23152(b) charges will be filed together.
To put it in layman's terms, DUI charges result when a person drives or otherwise operates a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Whenever you are planning a fun evening (or day) out with friends and alcohol may be consumed, it is always best to either designate a driver who will not be drinking or to utilize some sort of public or paid transportation like a taxi service or Uber driver.
DUI Causing Death Or Injury
California Vehicle Code 23153 VC deals with death or injuries caused by a person driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Code 23153 VC reads:
"(a) It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver. (b) It is unlawful for a person, while having 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver. . . . (e) It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any drug, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver. "
Vehicular Manslaughter While Intoxicated
If you kill someone while driving drunk, you could be charged with vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, a more serious crime than DUI causing injury. This charge may result if you drive under the influence and inadvertently cause the death of another person.
If, while driving under the influence, you intentionally engage in activity that is likely to result in the death of another person. The second scenario, intentionally engaging in activity that is likely to cause death, will result in the more serious charge of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and carries an even more serious penalty.
In addition to a charge of Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, there may also be circumstances in which the charges will be increased or “enhanced.” These enhancements include:
- Child Endangerment
- Reckless Speed
- Open Container
- Hit And Run
- Evading Arrest
- Blood Alcohol Above 0.15%
- Blood Alcohol Above 0.2%
- DUI Refusal/Forced Blood Draw
- Multiple Offenses
Child Endangerment Enhancement To DUI
There are two statutory provisions that apply to the child endangerment enhancement of a DUI charge. The first is California Vehicle Code 23572(a) which states that if a person violates Section 23152 VC, the portion of the Vehicle Code having to do with driving under the influence, while a person under the age of 14 is in the vehicle, the court must impose additional penalties that can range from an additional 48 hours to 90 days in the county jail.
Penal Code 273(a)
The second statutory provision that applies to a child endangerment enhancement of DUI is a violation of Penal Code 273(a) which covers crimes that involve cruelty to a child while under the influence of alcohol and includes driving a car with a minor passenger while under the influence and intentionally inflicting harm or mental anguish on the child while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
DUI Refusal/Forced Blood Draw
According to Vehicle Code 23612, any person who operates a vehicle in the State of California is considered to have already given their consent to having their blood or breath tested for the purpose of determining alcoholic content if that person is lawfully detained on suspicion of having violated the drunk driving laws of the state.
This means that if you are pulled over on suspicion of DUI, you are obligated to submit to the breath or blood test when asked by the investigating officer. The refusal to submit to a breath test or blood test could result in a forced blood draw to test your blood for alcohol content and an increased penalty if convicted of DUI.
DUI Bail Bonds
Many times the amount of money required for bail is more than someone can conveniently come up with.

Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed, professional bail bondsmen can help you negotiate the bail process and get out of jail fast.
A DUI bail bondsman will pay the bail on your behalf, and you pay the bondsman a fee, usually 10% of the total cost of bail. When the case is resolved, the court will return the money to the person who paid it, in this case the bail bondsmen. He keeps the fee as payment for helping to secure bail more quickly and for assistance to the court in tracking and ensuring the compliance of defendants who are out on bail.

VC 23152(e) – DUI of Drugs Charge
Driving under the influence of Drugs is a violation of the Vehicle Code 231452(e), which reads: “It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any drug to drive a vehicle.” It is very similar to driving under the influence of alcohol. One way that this charge differs from a regular “DUI” charge is that when an officer suspects the presence of drugs in someone's system, a breathalyzer test will not show drugs and a blood test will have to be ordered. Other evidence that can be used to charge someone with DUI of drugs includes the defendant's statements, behavior, and appearance.
What is DUI of Drugs?
California's legal definition of DUI of drugs is operating a vehicle under the influence of any substance, other than alcohol, that can affect your nervous system, brain, or muscles and includes illegal substances, prescriptions drugs, and even over the counter drugs, if they affect you to a significant degree. You are driving under the influence of drugs when you take drugs that impair you to the point that you are unable to drive like a sober person and, yet, you drive, anyway.
