Day: November 22, 2020

A dozy driver had his new car seized by police for having no insurance – just 30 seconds after he bought it.

The hapless motorist had just got behind the wheel of his new silver Renault Megane when he lost control and narrowly missed crashing into a police car.


Officers stopped the car and discovered the driver had just bought it but had failed to get it insured.

The car was confiscated after the bizarre incident in Northampton on Wednesday night.

Tweeting pictures of the car on a tow truck, Northampton Hub Specials posted: “This vehicle almost has a head-on with our motor.


“The driver then told officers he brought the car 30 seconds ago and for once this was actually true. Unfortunately took his chances not insuring it. And well you all know what happens next..#Seized.”

Social media users were quick to troll the driver.

Writing on Facebook Brendan Harris said: “Must be a record! Gone in 30 Seconds…”

Mal Brown wrote: “New car to no car in less than a minute. Hope he had enough for his bus fare home!”


Driving without insurance topped the list of most common traffic offenses landing drivers in trouble during the first month of Operation Journey, a road safety campaign launched by Northamptonshire Police in October.

During the first four weeks of the campaign, 366 motoring offenses were detected in the county, 64 vehicles seized and 19 people arrested.

FAMU-FSU College of Engineering team working on driverless transportation

Researchers for the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering have acquired a $100,000 multi-disciplinary study funded by the Federal Transit Administration to determine if it is safe for humans to share the road with buses that operate electrically and independently without a driver.

The 21-month Transit IDEA project is part of the Transit Cooperative Research Program, designed to foster innovative concepts. 

Sungmoon Jung, professor of civil and environmental engineering, is the principal investigator for the study which uses computer-based simulations to investigate crash risks. Jung is working with Mohammed Reza Seyedi, a post-doctoral researcher, to help the industry make the autonomous bus safer. 

Jung and Seyedi are researching autonomous shuttle buses (ASBs) and vulnerable road users (VRUs) – such as pedestrians and bicyclists – and placing them in a series of simulations that identify high-risk scenarios.

Illustration for article titled Public Transportation Has Been Key To Civil Rights Movements Throughout History

In an essay published after his death, civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. called public transportation—buses, subways, trams, and more—as a “genuine civil rights issue.” He pointed out the crucial factor that Atlanta’s public transit systems were designed to serve white communities, not the Black communities—and it has a serious impact on the socioeconomic status of civil rights movements.

An incredible new essay from the McGill International Review, “The Power of Public Transportation in Social Justice” by Dana Malapit, lays out the crucial history of how public transit has served civil rights movements. And it makes sense: we often peg the fight for Black rights on Rosa Parks refusing to sit on a segregated bus.

It’s still on the forefront of civil rights discourse today in North America, which the essay dictates:

In US cities, 34 per cent of Black people and 27 per cent of Hispanic people rely on public transit as their main method of transportation, compared to only 15 per cent of white urban residents. At the same time, richer and whiter communities rely on public transit at much lower rates, as they tend to be able to afford cars and live in suburbs that are well-connected to urban centres through freeways.

It’s especially crucial during the era of COVID-19, when public transport has been perceived as more dangerous but members of those marginalized or lower income communities are often still the ones who have to take public transport en route to jobs that require them to interact with the public.

Transportation has been disruptive to these communities for ages. Highways have been built through the middle of traditionally-Black neighborhoods, and chronically underfunded transit has prioritized white neighborhoods.

Here’s a little more from “The Connection Between Public Transit and Employment” by Thomas W. Sanchez (emphasis mine):

Why, then, might employment levels not be positively influenced by the availability of public transit service? First, poor route configuration could mean that although a worker has good access from her or his residence, the transit system may not go close enough to appropriate employment locations (Meyer & Gómez-Ibáñez, 1981). Second, public transit may provide an insufficient level of service (frequency, coverage, etc.) for entry-level, low-skill, temporary, or shift-work positions (Kihl, Knox, & Sanchez, 1997). Transit services which are available when workers leave for work may not be available when they need to return home. Third, public transit may simply not be seen as a cost-effective means of transportation to work. This may be due to lack of knowledge about transit routes and scheduling or the unwillingness of workers to trade the time cost of travel by bus or rail for the lower overall travel costs of autos (O’Sullivan, 1993). It would seem, however, that if a lack of mobility or access to employment contributes to low labor participation rates, public transit would provide a solution for at least a portion


The transportation industry is among the sectors hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin).

Stay-at-home and physical-distancing policies, coupled with the closure of tourist destinations and shopping centers, have caused earnings in the sector to plummet.

In these trying times, national flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia and state-owned train operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) have decided to venture into the logistics sector.

While other airlines have launched new business ventures, such as a digital platform for Muslim travelers by Malaysian budget airline AirAsia and Thai flag-carrier Thai Airways’ pop-up restaurant, Garuda Indonesia will be focusing on cargo services, specifically export shipping, and charter flights. 

Garuda Indonesia president director Irfan Setiaputra said during a virtual press conference on Friday that the company consciously took the decision not to enter other types of businesses.

“I think it would not have a significant impact financially,” he said as quoted by

He further said that other types of businesses might not create a good impression for the company.

For its cargo service, Garuda Indonesia has opened several routes, including Manado-Tokyo and Denpasar-Hong Kong.

The routes are designed to accommodate exports of marine and fishery products.

Moreover, the airline also offers an app-based courier service KirimAja in collaboration with the company’s logistics line PT Aerojasa Cargo.

Irfan said in June that the new service was launched to stem the losses suffered by the airline in recent months due to mobility restrictions while still staying true to the company’s core mission to connect people across the archipelago.

“We hope this service can help small and medium enterprises to [increase] their profits,” he said, explaining that the service offered free delivery to customers as well as discounts of up to 50 percent for intercity deliveries.

As for KAI, the company reportedly signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with state-owned port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo III) for collaboration in the logistics sector on Friday.

The collaboration will facilitate distribution flow to Tanjung Emas Port in Semarang and Tanjung Intan Port in Cilacap, Central Java, as well as Tanjung Perak Port in Surabaya, East Java.

“We are responsible for developing the Central Java and southern Java regions. This collaboration will provide logistical convenience,” said KAI president director Didiek Hartantyo.

Didiek added that the collaboration would also benefit the community, especially logistics operators.

He expressed his hopes that the signing of the MoU would become a joint commitment and foundation for all parties in developing the logistics business. (jes)

Community amenities abound

With an open floor plan with panoramic views of a tree-lined back yard plus all the amenities of a golf course community, this cedar-sided ranch has a main bedroom suite, open social areas and bonus space above the garage.

Listed for $419,000 by Bechtel Realtors, the home at 673 Yankee Trace Drive has about 2,400 square feet of living space, including the upstairs bonus room. Located within the Wedgestone Villas section of Yankee Trace community in Centerville, the home offers access to swimming pools, tennis courts, community rooms, walking trails and lawn care.

This cedar-sided home is tucked along the outer edge of the neighborhood with no rear neighbors. Corral fence accents the tree-lined back yard, which has island gardens and tailored landscaping. A concrete driveway leads to the two-car garage, and a concrete walkway curves around the garage to the formal entry.

The home’s formal areas are separated by inlay carpeting among the ceramic-tile walkways. Ceramic tile fills the foyer and wraps around the formal dining room area, down a hallway and into the kitchen and breakfast room.

The dining room has a tray ceiling with a chandelier and is separated from the foyer by flooring treatment, which is neutral carpeting.

Straight ahead is the great room, which has triple windows that look out over the private back yard. A wall of built-in bookcases and cabinetry surrounds a gas fireplace that has a fluted-wood mantel and ceramic-tile surround. Carpeting creates the designated space for the great room as the open floor plan flows from the great room into a breakfast room.

Triple windows fill the breakfast room with natural light, and a glass door with transom above opens out to the covered concrete patio. A two-level peninsula counter divides the kitchen from the breakfast room. The elevated counter has seating space for four while the lower counter offers workspace for the gourmet kitchen.

White cabinetry complements the light countertops. Some hanging cabinet doors have glass panels. There is a bottle rack and a pantry cabinet. Appliances include a range, microwave and dishwasher.

Down the hallway from the kitchen is a full bathroom and across the hallway is a bedroom. The bath has a tub/shower and single sink vanity.

Access to the laundry room is across the hallway from the kitchen. The laundry room has storage, access to the two-car garage and a staircase that leads to a finished bonus space above the garage. This space has a window, an angled ceiling and a closet allowing for a possible third bedroom.

Off the foyer is the entrance to an executive study. The study has wood-laminate flooring, a wall of built-in bookcases, a media nook, cabinets and
