Tedder bill to expand school zone speed limits Legislation enforces school zone speed limits to overhead pedestrian walkwaysThe Michigan House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee this week approved legislation introduced by state Rep. Jim Tedder to expand school zone speed limits to roads with an overhead crosswalk.Under current Michigan law, school zone speed limits cannot be enforced on highways where overhead pedestrian walkways are constructed.Tedder said this must be changed to protect Michigan students.“This legislation provides local governments with the option of enforcing school zone speed limits in areas which may be dangerous for students walking to school,” said Tedder, of Clarkston.  “Students will be able to walk safely to and from school without having to worry about higher traffic in certain areas.”This legislation does not apply to walkways that span over expressways.Waterford Schools have a situation where exempting the overhead pedestrian walkway from school zone speed limits has created safety issues, Tedder said.House Bill 4840 moves to the full House for consideration.###last_img

DELAY TO THE CORRUPTION TRIALS AGAIN 2015 START NOW

first_img Retrial ordered in Saunders appeal Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 Nov 2014 – An announcement today that there is another delay and another tentative date given for the start of the corruption trials of former government ministers and relatives, which keep on costing the country millions of dollars. The Court of Appeal did not meet as it was supposed to today; that means there will be no determination on whether the country will push forward with jury trials or juryless trials and that means the pre-trial hearings set to start next week cannot begin. This process has been plagued with challenges and of the late it is a stand-off between lawyers for the Defendants and the Crown and the Prosecution on whether it is fair to have a trial with the judge making the decision alone. The Court of Appeal reportedly cannot meet before January and a special session to determine the argument of trial without jury never convened this month as had been expected. Both the TCI Sun and the Turks and Caicos Weekly News are reporting the development; explaining also that other issues have been that the attorneys are complaining that the case has seen 60,000 extra pages of evidence submitted, without arrangement for an increase in pay. Some of the UK defense attorneys have withdrawn from the case; relations with the Supreme Court registrar, David Chetwynd have also been strained.
