Scrap that old car legally, warns yard owner

first_imgWhatsApp WITH the car scrappage scheme ended, motorists planning to send their out-of-use vehicle to the scrap yard are warned of the dangers of dealing with unlicensed operators.Paul Long, owner of Long’s scrap yard at Drombanna, insists that some have fallen prey to operators without a valid Waste Collection or Waste Facility Permit.He emphasised that the public must realise that it is their responsibility to dispose of their old car at an authorised facility.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Lately, it has been found that unscrupulous operators nationwide are taking advantage of people wanting to get rid of their car.“There have been some horror stories where people have given their cars to them without having received a certificate of destruction.“Often these vehicles are put back on the road and the original owner could receive a parking/speeding fine from elsewhere in the country, as the vehicle would still be registered in their name. “In one case brought to our attention, a car was stripped of everything and abandoned in a beauty spot in the Clare area.“Clare county council notified the owner and he ended up in court with a hefty fine to pay”. The local environment departments in the city and county councils work in conjunction with operators to ensure that necessary requirements are met.The operator should issue the owner with a certificate, needed to deregister the vehicle in the registration unit in Shannon.“We, like other legitimate scrap yard owners,  guarantee clients that they will be immune from the law…..all obligations are  fulfilled.  “The council and the Environmental Protection Agency are also informed that possession has been taken.“It is the end of it as far as the owners are concerned,” concluded Paul.The approved list of operators is listed on the County Council’s website.

Emergency Barring Orders, were also introduced under the new Act.A new offence of Coercive Control has also been introduced, to deal with situations where someone knowingly and persistently engages in behaviour that is controlling or coercive, and it has a serious effect on the person’s spouse/civil partner, or someone with whom the person has an intimate relationship.The offence of coercive control is an arrestable offence, liable on conviction to a fine or a term of imprisonment of up to 5 years.Director of ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services, Monica McElvaney welcomes the new Acr. “As well as the changes to existing orders and the new offence of Coercive Control, a number of additional measures have been included in the Act to offer greater protection and ease of access to legal protection for victims’,” she said.An Garda Síochána have been informed of the service and are working in collaboration with ADAPT to further respond to the needs of people experiencing domestic violence.For further information on the Court and Information Service please contact Denise Dunne on 061-412354.

Congressman Pittenger Says Excessive Regulation Slows Economic Growth, Hurts Entrepreneurs

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Congressman Pittenger Says Excessive Regulation Slows Economic Growth, Hurts Entrepreneurs The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: REO Share Still Way Above ‘Normal’ Levels in Many Metros Next: DS News Webcast: Tuesday 5/26/2015 The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media. He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Community Banks Congressman Robert Pittenger Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Regulatory Relief 2015-05-22 Brian Honea Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily Republican politicians have made a greater push in the last few months to ease the regulatory burden on smaller banks, and one of the central figures in favor of relief from regulation has been U.S. Congressman Robert Pittenger (R-North Carolina).Pittenger, a member of the House Financial Services Committee, said in an interview co-authored the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection Advisory Boards Act (H.R. 1195), which passed in the House last month largely along party lines (235 to 183) and is awaiting a vote in the Senate. Pittenger has been a vocal critic of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB); in February 2014, Pittenger called for more transparency and accountability from the CFPB as he denounced the “tsunami of regulations” coming from Washington, D.C.Earlier this week, in an interview with the Charlotte Observer in his home district, Pittenger said that the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction and that the regulations intended to protect consumers are now having the opposite effect. It is the entrepreneur who gets hurt by the excessive regulations, he said, because the cost of compliance on the smaller banks who tend to make the loans to start-up businesses forces those banks to restrict their lending. Pittenger cited as evidence of this the failure of hundreds of banks since the financial crisis and the merger of several others.Pittenger said he believes there are so many regulations in place that they could potentially cause another economic downturn, and he pointed to current slow economic growth (an annual 2.2 percent) as evidence that regulations are hurting the economy and preventing job growth.“The CFPB continues to issue new regulations designed for massive, ‘systemic-risk’ financial institutions without considering how those same rules harm small businesses, community banks, and credit unions,” Pittenger said last month after H.R. 1195 passed in the House. “Small businesses create jobs. Community banks and credit unions support local businesses. Most bureaucrats just support new rules. This bipartisan legislation will give small businesses, credit unions, and community banks a voice in proposed regulations, allowing for adjustments that protect consumers while giving small businesses the freedom to grow and create good paying jobs.”He has said he does not believe the CFPB should be eliminated altogether, just that it should be run by a five-member board instead of a single director and should be more accountable and transparent, and that it should enact fewer regulations.The White House has threatened to veto H.R. 1195 if it passes in the Senate. The bill would create a small business advisory board to advise the CFPB during the rule-making process, and it would make permanent two advisory boards for community banks that are currently comprised of volunteers and could be eliminated at any time by the Director of the CFPB. A last-minute amendment to the bill proposed by House Financial Services Committee Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) calls for a reduction in the amount of money the CFPB director can request for funding by less than 1 percent, Pittenger said. Nevertheless, the late amendment to the bill drove its co-author, Denny Heck (D-Washington), to vote against it and encourage others to do the same. Heck claimed that Hensarling “put the torch” to his bill.Similar legislation is moving through the Senate; earlier this week, the Senate Banking Committee approved the Financial Regulatory Improvement Act of 2015 by a party line vote of 12 to 10. The bill is aimed at providing regulatory relief for community and regional banks and credit unions, and proposing “moderate” changes that would increase the transparency of the Federal Reserve.Pittenger told the Observer that he plans to introduce legislation later this year that would eliminate duplicative or inconsistent financial regulations.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Mayuri Singh directed the SHO of Karawal Nagar police station to register FIR after the court was of the view that clearly a cognizable offence was made out in the case demanding a proper investigation. The order came on an application filed by Advocate M.R. Shamshad under sec. 156(3) of Cr.P.C. which empowers a Magistrate to order investigation into cognizable cases. According to the complaint, around 20 to 25 people had gathered on 25th February 2020 at about 6 PM in the Madina Masjid Gali armed with lathies, sticks, acid, rods and petrol bottles. Thereafter, the accused persons started breaking the mosque and destroyed the premises by putting it on fire with the help of an explosion done through two LPG cylinders. The complaint mentions that on 26th February 2020, one of the accused had allegedly climbed on the top of the Masjid and chanted Jai Shree Ram followed by hoisting of Saffron Flag over the Masjid. In view of this, the Court ordered: “In my considered opinion, FIR is to be registered if a cognizable offence is made out. As per the allegations contained in the complaint regarding the incident of fire etc. in the Madina mosque, Shiv Vihar, cognizable offence is clearly made out and a proper investigation is required as it cannot be said that all the evidences are within the reach of the Complainant, even though he has named some of the persons allegedly involved in the offence.” The Court directed the SHO of Karawal Nagar police station to register FIR under appropriate sections of law. However, the court indicated that the order is no direction for immediately arresting the accused. “The SHO /Investigating Agency should first investigate the matter and find out whether actually any offence has been committed or not. It is now a settled proposition of law that the power of arrest is different from justification to do so.” The court ordered.

Florida man posing as an officer pulls over an off-duty sheriff’s deputy

first_imgHillsborough County Sheriff(HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla.) — A man posing as a police officer in Florida pulled over another driver this week – but the motorist turned out to be an actual sheriff’s deputy.Barry Hastings, Jr. was arrested for impersonating an officer when he attempted to pull over an off-duty Lee County Sheriff’s deputy, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.The deputy was driving on I-4 “when a black Crown Victoria with white and amber lights pulled behind him with the emergency lights activated,” the sheriff’s office said.After the deputy pulled his vehicle to the shoulder, the sheriff’s office said Hastings, 35, told him to “slow down.”When the deputy twice asked Hastings for his credentials, Hastings insisted he was an officer and that his credentials were at his office, according to the sheriff’s office, which said he offered to lead the deputy to the “station” to get them.Hastings fled when the deputy said he would contact law enforcement and dialed 911, but was stopped by a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputy when he exited the highway, officials said.The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said a functional siren box and light setup were found in Hastings’ vehicle as well as a CB radio, according to the sheriff’s office, which said no handcuffs or firearms were found.Amanda Granit, a spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News that Hastings bonded out of the Hillsborough County Jail early Friday. It was not immediately clear if Hastings had legal representation.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
