Challenging The 2013 Rule Implementing Regulations On Oversnow Vehicle Use In Yellowstone National Park, Brian Bieschke 2016 Boston College Law School

Challenging The 2013 Rule Implementing Regulations On Oversnow Vehicle Use In Yellowstone National Park, Brian Bieschke

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In 2013, the National Park Service (“NPS”) promulgated a new rule to regulate the use of snowmobiles and snowcoaches in Yellowstone National Park during the winter months. The innovation and development of such “oversnow” vehicles increased park visitors’ access to Yellowstone’s majestic wonders throughout winter. Unfortunately, because such vehicles emitted noise and air pollution and created safety hazards, their unfettered use throughout the winter season posed an ever-increasing threat to the natural integrity of Yellowstone and to visitors. To mitigate the negative effects of oversnow vehicles on Yellowstone, the NPS began restricting their use by placing fixed limitations on ...

Public Transit Data Through An Intellectual Property Lens: Lessons About Open Data, Teresa Scassa 2016 University of Ottawa

Public Transit Data Through An Intellectual Property Lens: Lessons About Open Data, Teresa Scassa

Fordham Urban Law Journal

This Article examines some of the challenges presented by the transition from ‘closed’ to open data within the municipal context, using municipal transit data as a case study. The particular lens through which this Article examines these challenges is intellectual property law. In a ‘closed data’ system, intellectual property law is an important means by which legal control over data is asserted by governments and their agencies. In an ‘open data’ context, the freedom to use and distribute content is a freedom from IP constraints. The evolution of approaches to open municipal transit data offers some interesting examples of the ...


Sharing The Road: Smart Transportation Infrastructure, Dorothy J. Glancy 2016 Santa Clara University School of Law

Sharing The Road: Smart Transportation Infrastructure, Dorothy J. Glancy

Fordham Urban Law Journal

Smart cities require smart transportation. Advanced Intelligent Transportation Systems provide ever-smarter transportation infrastructure for the United States and countries around the world. Among the most advance forms of ground transportation infrastructure is a group of technologies that connect vehicles invisibly to other vehicles through information exchanges. These advanced transportation technologies are of two types: On the one hand, Connected Vehicle Safety Systems use vehicle-to-vehicle dedicated short range communications technologies. On the other hand, Connected Vehicle Mobility Applicatoins use a muhc wider variety of mobile wireless technologies. These two types of technolofies that connect vehicles will increasingly make existing physical infrastructure ...

Electric Vehicles: Rolling Over Barriers And Merging With Regulation, Mark Detsky, Gabriella Stockmayer 2016 College of William & Mary Law School

Electric Vehicles: Rolling Over Barriers And Merging With Regulation, Mark Detsky, Gabriella Stockmayer

William & Mary Environmental Law and Policy Review

Electric vehicles are merging into the mainstream of transportation. Although the technology still comprises a small fraction of the current market, it ismorewidely available due to competitivepricing, technological improvements, and available state and federal incentives. The benefits of electric vehicles include reduced fossil fuel emissions and associated climate change mitigation, new independence from oil-driven policies in foreignmarkets and international relations, and potential opportunities for increasing and complementing renewable energy electric resources. The risks of widespread electric vehicle deployment are largely thought to involve potential impacts on existingutility generation,distribution, and transmission systems and how the costs of any needed changes ...


Shifting Automotive Landscapes: Privacy And The Right To Travel In The Era Of Autonomous Motor Vehicles, Matthew Gillespie 2016 Washington University School of Law

Shifting Automotive Landscapes: Privacy And The Right To Travel In The Era Of Autonomous Motor Vehicles, Matthew Gillespie

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

This note discusses the changing nature of the right to transportation within the context of the “single-mode” doctrine and consumer privacy laws. Gillespie analyzes how the right to transportation has fundamentally outgrown the United States’ outdated policies, specifically addressing the right to privacy in relation to autonomous motor vehicles (AMVs). Gillespie then argues that the United States should abandon the single-mode transportation doctrine and adopt “comprehensive protections of consumer privacy when information is collected through AMVs.”

Portlandia, Ridesharing, And Sex Discrimination, Ari Herbert

Michigan Law Review Online

Part II then highlights precedent that supports See Jane Go’s and SafeHer’s discriminatory driver–passenger practices. Part III concludes by arguing that the legal system ought to make room for apps like See Jane Go and SafeHer in the current framework.


The Phase-Out And Sunset Of Travel Restrictions In The International Health Regulations, Sarah R. Goldfarb 2016 Brooklyn Law School

The Phase-Out And Sunset Of Travel Restrictions In The International Health Regulations, Sarah R. Goldfarb

Brooklyn Journal of International Law

Whether and to what extent travel restriction should be implemented during international infectious disease epidemics became a controversial issue, most recently, during the 2014 Ebola outbreak. The primary authority on the manner in which to respond to such epidemics is the International Health Regulations (IHR). The IHR is a treaty, established by the World Health Organization (WHO), which governs and coordinates international responses to international infectious disease epidemics. Despite the WHO's strong advisement to the contrary, many countries who were signatories to the IHR implemented travel bans and other types of travel restrictions to prevent the transmission of the ...

Part I will take a closer look at what makes texting while driving so dangerous, situating it within the larger context of distracted driving. Part II will then focus on Indiana’s legislative response in particular, breaking down the texting-while-driving laws and discussing impediments to widespread and consistent enforcement. Part III explores alternative strategies for combating those impediments to enforcement, drawing from the approaches of other areas of law ...

A New Class Of Worker For The Sharing Economy, Megan Carboni

Richmond Journal of Law & Technology

Jennifer Guidry begins her workday at four a.m. She begins by vacuuming her personal car, preparing it to "ferry around strangers" for Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar. Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar are "ride services that let people summon drivers on demand via [electronic] apps." Her phone pings just moments after four-thirty a.m.-an Uber customer requesting a ride to the airport. She accepts immediately, makes a round trip to the airport in just over an hour, and pockets twenty-eight dollars. This does not account for the cost of gas or wear and tear on her car.6 She performs ...


Technological Opacity, Predictability, And Self-Driving Cars, Harry Surden, Mary-Anne Williams 2016 University of Colorado Law School

Technological Opacity, Predictability, And Self-Driving Cars, Harry Surden, Mary-Anne Williams

Articles

Autonomous or “self-driving” cars are vehicles that drive themselves without human supervision or input. Because of safety benefits that they are expected to bring, autonomous vehicles are likely to become more common. Notably, for the first time, people will share a physical environment with computer-controlled machines that can both direct their own activities and that have considerable range of movement. This represents a distinct change from our current context. Today people share physical spaces either with machines that have free range of movement, but are controlled by people (e.g. automobiles) or with machines that are controlled by computers, but ...
