Speeding motorists from European countries escaping prosecution in Britain due to quirk

Hundreds of foreign motorists have been allowed to speed on Britain’s roads with impunity because police cannot trace the drivers of vehicles from abroad, a constabulary has admitted.A loophole in European laws has meant that a total of 400 motorists from mainland Europe have escaped prosecution despite their cars being photographed breaking the legal speed limit by enforcement cameras on the M20 in Kent.Damian Green, the local MP, and the RAC Foundation have condemned the inability to prosecute dangerous foreign drivers claiming it sends the wrong message to motorists visiting the UK.The contraflow on the M20 was imposed for a seven-week period between April and the end of May as part of Brexit contingency plans.Traffic was reduced to two lanes and a 50mph speed imposed on the London-bound carriageway.While more than 900 British drivers were given £100 fines for exceeding the limit, 400 foreign motorists caught by the cameras escaped a fine or prosecution. While police who stop speeding motorists can establish the identity of a foreign driver, tracking down foreign drivers through speed camera footage can exceed the six month time limit for a prosecutionCredit:IAN JONES “Enforcement need not be at the roadside but at the ports. If cameras are used to detect offending then couldn’t the penalty be issued at entry and exit points? The mere threat of it would quickly act as a deterrent.”An EU directive introduced in 2017 was supposed to make it easier for member states to track down motorists who had committed a range of offences, including speeding.The directive compels member states to exchange the identity of the registered keeper or owner of a vehicle – as opposed to the identity of the driver – at the time of the offence.However, the UK runs a driver liability system whereas the directive is based on keeper liability.For police forces, that may make it more difficult obtaining information on drivers if they are from another member state.In the UK, police obtain the name of a registered car owner from the DVLA before writing to them to ask for a declaration of who was driving at the time of the photographed speeding offence. Failure to respond to that ‘Notice of Intended Prosecution’ is in itself an offence.While officers can obtain details of the foreign owner of a vehicle from the DVLA equivalent in most other European countries, they do not have legal powers to force that person to reveal who was driving at the time of an offence. While police could ask officers from the European Liaison Unit for assistance, it would be frowned upon because police in that team usually deal with far more serious crimes. It is also anticipated that pursuing a foreign speeding motorist could take more than six months, the time limit for any prosecution to be brought.Essentially, in the UK the driver of a vehicle is responsible for any crimes committed in any vehicle they drive, no matter who owns it. But most European countries hold the owner of a vehicle directly responsible for any crimes committed in that car, no matter who is driving. So, other European countries are better able to pursue prosecutions for British motorists caught speeding abroad because they DVLA provides the name of the owner of a vehicle. “The reason is that in the UK, whoever was driving the vehicle at the time of an alleged offence, is liable for prosecution. In some, but not all, EU countries, the registered keeper of the vehicle is liable even if they were not driving at the time.“Under EU legislation, dating from 2017, UK police forces can request the registered keeper’s details if they are a foreign national but we cannot establish who was driving the vehicle at the time. This is what we would require under UK legislation to secure a prosecution for a speeding offence.”Mr Green, the Conservative MP for Ashford, said he would write to the chief constable to demand an explanation, adding: “This is unacceptable. Everyone who uses that part of the M20 can tell you how they have been overtaken by foreign lorries who do not obey the speed limit.“The idea that they can do so with impunity sends out the wrong message.”He added that technology and help from foreign police forces should be used to identify commercial vehicles, such as lorries and trucks arriving at ports, and their drivers if it is thought they have been driving dangerously here.Philip Gomm of the RAC Foundation said: “Turning a blind eye to speeding drivers, of whatever nationality, sends out the wrong message about what is acceptable on Kent’s roads. While police who stop speeding motorists can establish the identity of a foreign driver, tracking down foreign drivers through speed camera footage can exceed the six month time limit for a prosecution Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Northwest Arctic Borough Village Improvement Fund projects being determined

first_imgNorthwest Arctic Borough (KNOM file photo)The Northwest Arctic Borough’s Village Improvement Fund (VIF) could start distributing money for local projects this year.Listen nowA group of representatives from each of the 11 borough communities met this week in Kotzebue to define criteria for the projects. Hiram Walker is the capital projects manager for the VIF.“It can’t be directed toward one entity or one person. It has to be something that’s sustainable and is shared with all the community,” Walker said.Walker says the fund is currently at $12 million. It was set up last year as part of a ten-year agreement between the borough and Teck Resources, which runs Red Dog Mine. Teck is contributing $4 million to $8 million to the Village Improvement Fund each year out of the zinc mine’s profits.Walker says the VIF will provide not only a reliable funding source to communities where outside money is scarce, but also local autonomy.“We’ll be able to hire local,” Walker said. “We’ll be able to buy material from whom we want to buy it from. It’s a government thing, but it doesn’t have very many strings attached.”So far, Walker says Deering is the farthest along in putting together a proposal, specifically for potable piped drinking water. Selawik and Ambler are also hoping to receive funds in the first round. Selawik VIF commissioner Tanya Ballett says her community is hoping to get funds to either complete a new store, construct a new landfill or improve water and sewer.Ambler Mayor and VIF commissioner Morgan Johnson says his community’s priorities include water and sewer improvements, addressing high energy costs, and a lack of adequate housing. But deciding what to focus on will be a group effort.“People will have to come in, sit down and work things out as a community: everybody get in one mind and say, hey, what’s the most important thing that a town needs right now, and go for it,” Johnson said.Whatever they end up choosing, Johnson says the VIF program is a big help.“It’s a pretty smart move for Teck to help the borough in any ways to help alleviate struggling communities that don’t have funding of any source,” Johnson said.Teck will contribute $8 million to the VIF in 2018, based on their 2017 profits. Once the commission has nailed down specific criteria, it will start to look at community project proposals.last_img read more

No survivors found in Mexico crash of jet carrying 13

first_imgA plane crash in a remote mountain region in northern Mexico claimed the lives of all 13 people on board, including a family of five that were flying back from watching a boxing match in Las Vegas, authorities and local media said on Monday.The wreckage of the plane that took off from Las Vegas on Sunday was found via aerial surveillance in the northern municipality of Ocampo, the government of Coahuila state said in a statement.A photograph published on local television network Milenio showed what it said were the burnt remnants of the plane, broken into pieces, spread over charred earth.Mexican media reported that the passengers had been to a boxing match between Mexican boxer Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and U.S. fighter Daniel Jacobs in Las Vegas on Saturday.The nationalities of the victims were not immediately clear. The surnames of the three crew and 10 passengers published by the Coahuila government were all Hispanic.The victims were between 19 and 57 years old, according to a version of the passenger list published in Mexican media.Newspaper Diario de Yucatan said on its website that among the victims were 55-year-old businessman Luis Octavio Reyes Dominguez, his wife, and their three children.In a statement, Canada’s Bombardier Inc identified the jet as a Challenger 601 and said the plane had gone missing about 150 nautical miles from the northern Mexican city of Monclova.Expressing its condolences to the victims, the company said it had been in touch with Canada’s transportation safety board and would work with the investigating authorities.Alvarez was saddened to hear of the crash.”I deeply lament the terrible accident of the plane coming from Vegas,” he wrote on Twitter on Monday. “I’m deeply grateful for the support of all the people who travel to see my fights. My prayers are with their families.”Mexico’s civil aviation authority said the aircraft departed Las Vegas shortly before 3 p.m. local time. Nearly two hours later, Monterrey lost track of the jet and was unable to make contact with pilots, it said in a statement.Mexican broadcaster Televisa said that the pilot had intended to descend to avoid a storm.Francisco Martinez, an emergency services official in Coahuila, told Milenio recent adverse weather conditions would form part of the investigation into the crash. However, he stopped short of saying weather had caused it.last_img read more

Homebuyers Overleveraged and Under Pressure

And when you finally find the “perfect” space to call your own, it’s also nearly impossible to resist—especially these days with inventory drum-tight, interest rates still hovering near the lowest recorded numbers in the past 30 years, and intense competition for the available properties. Sadly, for some buyers, that urge to acquire an abode is putting them in a precarious financial position, according to a new WalletHub study.The company recently set about determining which U.S. cities have the most overleveraged mortgage debtors. WalletHub compared the median mortgage balances against the median income and median home value in more than 2,500 cities.The nation’s number-one most overleveraged city, according to WalletHub? Willis, Texas, with an overleverage score of 65.77. How do the numbers shake out? Median mortgage debt in Willis is $141,422, while the median home value sits at $74,600. Median income is $33,933, mortgage debt-to-income ratio is 417 percent, and mortgage debt-to-house value ratio is 190 percent.Number two on the list is Ewa Beach, Hawaii, which garnered a 65.33 overleverage score. There, median mortgage debt is $357,535 and median home value is $468,200, while median income stands at $35,656. The mortgage debt-to-income ratio is 1003 percent, and the mortgage debt-to-house value ratio totals 76 percent.Now that you have an idea of how the scoring system works, here are the overleverage scores for the remaining cities in the top 10: Dumfries, Virginia—65.29; Kahului, Hawaii—63.66; Santa Ana, California—62.3; Lahaina, Hawaii—62.2; Watsonville, California—58.35; Bell Gardens, California—56.35; Vista, California—55.72; and Richmond, Texas—55.51.A simple tool like a mortgage calculator can be a huge aid in figuring out an affordable monthly payment and realistic payoff timeline, WalletHub says. Plus, a credit-score makeover (if necessary) is also a big help, it advises. The critical key, it notes, is knowledge.“As with any major financial decision, it’s wise to improve one’s credit score before applying for a mortgage in order to qualify for the best possible rates,” WalletHub said. “Without a good grasp of how to pay off mortgage debt, consumers might find that debt unsustainable.” Affordability Debt Mortgage Debt mortgage leverage WalletHub 2018-04-19 Alison Rich April 19, 2018 708 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, journal, Market Studies, News, Originationcenter_img Homebuyers: Overleveraged and Under Pressure Sharelast_img read more
