few bad apples? Or squad of assholes power tripping? An EMT was attempting to unload a patient in the ambulance bay area at Strong Memorial Hospital when she bumped the cops car (why is that in the ambulance area asshole?)
Monroe Ambulance said the EMT made the correct call in bringing the patient inside the hospital as soon as possible.
“While the incident is still under internal investigation, our review of the video footage of the event indicates the safety of both our employee and that of her patient were jeopardized by the action of the officer,” the statement said. “Our employee demonstrated sound decision making by prioritizing the care of her patient and it is the expectation of all our care providers to do the same.”
At each charging stop, in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York, I ran into problems. A five-minute wait to see if the car and charger would establish communications was invariably the case. Waiting 10 minutes was not uncommon. Even then, there was no time to relax; more than once, an error somewhere in the loop shut everything down after just a few kWh...
Then there was the problem of whether or not all of the chargers at a given location were even functional. At one EA station with a Plugshare rating of 9.8, two of four chargers were completely inoperable and a third was reduced to just 50 kW. Four days later, nothing had changed other than its Plugshare rating, which had increased by 0.2 points to the maximum score of 10, with a note in italics about the reduced-power machine...
Donkervoort's quarter million dollar hand-built and ultra-light sports cars that 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 sec, will be available to purchase in the US, good news because there is a 2 year waiting list already in Europe
According to data obtained by CBS 8, in just a 30-day period from May 28 through June 28, the city paid $333,786 to settle 11 trip and fall lawsuits and legal claims.
During that short 30-day period, the city also paid $42,500 to settle a lawsuit filed by a cyclist who fell due to a dilapidated bike lane.
City documents show that the injuries occurred between 2018 through 2021.
Meanwhile, Mayor Gloria has stated that he will focus on addressing San Diego's crumbling infrastructure and more than a billion-dollar backlog.

Many Texas land owners whose properties sit in the proposed path of the train oppose the project. James Miles of Leon County sued Texas Central in 2019 challenging whether the company has the authority to use eminent domain to take property for the project.

that would be a hoot, but 9-1030 on Friday morning, I must be in the Hall H line, and the breakfast is French Pastries, I love that pun, and apt choice for a breakfast snack, but I am diabetic now and can't eat pastries anymore.
when it's a family that fills a car, or suv, then only one vehicle of the family is in use, and this doesn't constitute carpooling.
Seems like someone pulled a fast one, used taxpayer funds to make lanes that can only be used (huge fine with that carpooling lane ticket here in California) by people that find it's more convenient than using the crowded lanes to take their kids to after school sports.
I'm against using taxpayer funds to make things that taxpayers can't use, that are limited to some special category that the majority of taxpayers are not entitled to.
