    DETROIT (AP) — The city of Saginaw violated the U.S. Constitution by chalking tires to enforce parking limits, but it won’t be forced to refund thousands of tickets in the class-action case, a judge said. The city must only pay vehicle owners “nominal damages” of $1 for each marking, U.S. District Judge Thomas Ludington said Monday. READ MORE: LeBron James School Student Treated To VIP Access By NASCAR“The basic problem is that chalking is relatively harmless,” he said, noting there was no damage to cars. Saginaw staff marked tires and subsequently wrote tickets if they returned to find a vehicle was parked too long. After five years of litigation, including two appeals to a higher court, Ludington ruled in favor of Alison Taylor, who received 14 tickets. The judge said marking tires without a warrant violated constitutional protections against unreasonable searches. “No reasonable person would argue that something as trivial and transitory as chalk on a tire offends a reasonable expectation of privacy. But the Fourth Amendment protects more than those expectations that society deems reasonable,” Ludington said. READ MORE: MSP:...
    A “SELFISH” Land Rover driver who parked on the pavement of a village street has hit back at his critics. The vehicle was photographed completely blocking access to pedestrians in the Leicestershire town of Birstall at the end of last month. 2The driver of the Land Rover Defender was blasted for his pavement parkingCredit: Facebook A critic posted the image on the local Spotted Birstall Facebook group calling it “another example of idiot parking” with many others agreeing. The villager who posted the snap said there were two parking spaces available just feet away. They blasted: "I wouldn't normally both taking a picture but he had two other options of places to park and he parks right next to wall. "There are kids about, it's the school holidays, we teach them not to cross behind a parked car, and people like this give us no choice." Now the driver, who wishes to remain anonymous, has come forward to explain and, he hopes, to justify his actions. He claims he had parked as close as he could to a shop his...
    IGNORING that illuminated red exclamation mark on your car’s dashboard is easy — but neglecting the alert for too long can prove costly. The red exclamation mark on your dashboard, surrounded by a circle, is your brake system warning light. 2Closeup of car tachometer with many illuminated indicatorsCredit: Getty An active brake system warning light means that your vehicle’s parking brake is engaged or your brake fluid is low. Drivers that activate their parking brake facilitate their brake handle to flip a switch that triggers the warning. Cars with low brake fluid similarly flip a switch that illuminates their brake system warning light. Your initial reaction to a brake system warning light should include checking to see if your vehicle’s parking brake is engaged. If your parking brake’s off, you may be dealing with worn brake pads or a hydraulic system leak from low brake fluid. Worn brake pads deteriorate the pad’s steel backing and rotors — and rotors with extreme levels of wear will eventually lead to a driver losing control of their brakes. A...
    A man repeatedly punched a woman in the face, knocked her down and then hit her with his car in the parking lot of a motel just off Route 46 – all of which was captured on security video. Choice Neely Jr., 44, of Paterson sped off in a Mercedes SUV, leaving his injured girlfriend outside the Travelodge Motel on Huyler Street around 11:30 a.m. July 1, Detective Sgt. James Donatello said Thursday. Members of the Moonachie First Aid & Rescue Squad took the woman to Hackensack University Medical Center with severe road rash on her legs and shoulder, among other injuries, following the broad-daylight assault, Donatello said. Surveillance video showed Neely “punching her in the face and head several times before knocking her to the ground,” the sergeant said. “The victim then got back up and attempted to get her belongings out of the defendant's vehicle." Neely then "put the vehicle in reverse and sped away, striking her in the process,” he said. A judge issued a warrant for Neely’s arrest on aggravated assault and assault by auto charges...
    Stephen Hawking’s Volkswagen minivan, which was used as his wedding vehicle in 1995, has gone up for auction with his disabled parking permit still in the glovebox.  The 1988 Volkswagen Caravelle, purchased new by the late Professor Hawking and still ‘in excellent original condition’, was used as his personal transportation for ten years. The Brief History of Time author, who died in 2018, also used the van, which was big enough to fit his motorised chair, to travel to his wedding with his second wife Elaine Mason.  The vehicle has been put up for auction by the theoretical physicist’s family who would like it to be bought by somebody who appreciates the vehicle’s history and connection to the academic.

    SANTA CRUZ — The city of Santa Cruz’s plan to ban large-vehicle overnight street parking is in need of state review, a coastal public watchdog panel ruled Thursday. Shortly before a permit appeal hearing on the city Oversized Vehicle Ordinance this week, California Coastal Commission officials reversed an earlier recommendation not to intervene. Initially, commission staff flagged environmental justice concerns with the law, but ultimately wrote that they felt that “the public access impact in question is negligible” in their report ahead of Thursday’s hearing. The ordinance language includes a citywide ban on large-vehicle street and parking-lot parking from midnight to 5 a.m. daily, except with a limited visitor permit or during certain emergencies. Members of the local Santa Cruz Cares group filed the appeal, asking the Coastal Commission to step in and assert jurisdictional authority as the ordinance applies to coastal access. In May, the group of citizens appealed the new city law, which has languished, unenforced, since its Nov. 9 approval, throughout numerous similar city-level appeal hearings. In a description of its concerns listed on the Santa Cruz Cares website,...

    TWO adverts for the new Land Rover Defender has been banned after they misled viewers about reversing. After various off-road driving shots, a section shows the Defender reversing towards a cliff edge and the driver using its reversing camera and guide to judge the distance. 1The ASA decided viewers could be misled by the adverts The adverts, which aired in February, drew criticism from two viewers. They argued that while parking sensors could help with objects behind the vehicle, they couldn't help with an empty space. Therefore it was dangerous to suggest reversing up to a cliff edge was safe using the parking aid. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said the adverts showed the Defender’s reversing feature and included a scene with an in-car camera view and the sensor beeping as the vehicle approached the edge of the cliff.

    The Utah man accused of killing his wife by running her over in an airport parking garage while intoxicated will remain jailed after a judge denied his request for bail. Shawn Christopher Sturgeon, of Taylorsville, was charged with manslaughter, automobile homicide and domestic violence in the presence of a child after he allegedly killed his wife, Charlotte, following an argument on April 4.  Sturgeon, 38, reportedly had a blood-alcohol level three times the state's legal limit of 0.05 when he abruptly accelerated the family SUV and struck Charlotte, causing her to lose her balance.

The judge's reasoning for denying bail was not immediately clear. Shawn Christopher Sturgeon,...
    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- Following a vote by the City Council on Wednesday, parking enforcement of vehicle dwellings in violation of posted signage will resume on May 15 for the first time since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, and parking enforcement for recreational vehicles deemed hazardous will begin immediately.Enforcement and towing of vehicle dwellings was suspended in March 2020, when the city declared a local emergency, relaxing enforcement for all parking violations. The city resumed general enforcement in October 2020, but vehicles that officers believed were being used as dwellings were exempt.According to the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, vehicle dwellings were exempt from enforcement so "the unhoused did not meet additional burdens during a health crisis.'' Officials added that the definition's broadness has led to abandoned vehicles not being impounded either.In February, the department created criteria for distinguishing between abandoned vehicles suitable for towing and vehicles used as dwellings that warrant additional engagement.The City Council on Wednesday voted to approve LADOT's criteria, and Councilman Joe Buscaino added an amendment to have the department resume parking enforcement for all...

    Oakland officials are considering banning RVs and other large vehicles from parking on certain streets in an attempt to curb the large vehicle encampments that have spread throughout the city. Councilman Noel Gallo on Tuesday introduced an ordinance that would ban oversized vehicles from parking on all streets with a width of 40 feet or less — the size of a typical two-lane road. The ban is needed, he argued during a Public Works Committee meeting, to make streets safer for Oakland residents. But about a dozen activists and other community members called into the meeting to oppose the idea, which they worried would punish people with nowhere else to go.
