Ending Drunk Driving With A Flash Of Light, Andrew Sullivan 2015 University of Richmond

Ending Drunk Driving With A Flash Of Light, Andrew Sullivan

Law Student Publications

Among the methods used to combat drunk driving is mandating a person convicted of driving under the influence/driving while intoxicated install an ignition interlock device (“IID”) in his/her vehicle as a condition of restoring his/her driving privileges.This comment argues that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) has the authority to issue such a regulation; it need only be presented with a workable opportunity to do so. The present state of IID technology is a poor candidate to make this hypothetical regulation workable, but advances in Near Infrared (“near-IR”) Spectroscopy will provide the technology necessary to ...

21st Century Futurama: Contemplating Removal Of Urban Freeways In The World Of Tomorrow, Jessica Kraft-Klehm 2015 Washington University School of Law

21st Century Futurama: Contemplating Removal Of Urban Freeways In The World Of Tomorrow, Jessica Kraft-Klehm

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

Urban freeway removal has been increasing in popularity due to its viability as a mechanism for positive urban development, as it is thought to spur economic development and the revitalization of many ‘downtown’ areas that have been blighted by an unfair system. This Note discusses the Federal-Aid Highway Act and its impact on urban America. Ultimately, this note proposes that national transportation policy be revised to actively promote urban freeway removal projects.

The Criminalization Of Walking, Michael Lewyn 2014 Touro Law Center

The Criminalization Of Walking, Michael Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

Because walking improves human health and reduces pollution, one might think that the law should encourage walking and discourage driving But in fact, criminal law sometimes punishes walkers, in two major respects. First, state and city laws against something often referred to as “jaywalking” limit walkers’ ability to cross streets. As a result of these laws, police can fine (and even arrest) walkers. Second, bureaucrats and police sometimes interpret child neglect laws to mean that preteen children may never walk on their own, and have sometimes arrested child pedestrians' parents or sought to place the children in state care. This ...

Was Singapore Airlines Liable For Business-Class Seats Sold At Economy Rates?, Yihan GOH 2014 Singapore Management University

Was Singapore Airlines Liable For Business-Class Seats Sold At Economy Rates?, Yihan Goh

Research Collection School Of Law

Much has been reported about Singapore Airlines (“SIA”) mistakenly charging economy rates for around 900 business-class seats due to a computer input error. Yesterday, SIA said that it would honour those tickets at economy rates, reversing its previous position that it would not, and closing the episode on a note of goodwill. This blog entry explores the legal analysis behind the episode on the assumption that Singapore contract law applies, so as to maintain its general relevance to a Singaporean audience and its specific application to online retailers concerned about making similar pricing errors. Of course, the analysis would differ ...

Determinants Of Traffic Fatalities In The U.S., Hanna Stapleton 2014 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Determinants Of Traffic Fatalities In The U.S., Hanna Stapleton

Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato

This paper investigates the determinants of motor vehicle fatalities in each of the 50 states in the U.S., along with the District of Columbia. Using a panel data set from 1994 to 2005, we analyze how the factors, such as safety belt laws, speed control, alcohol usage, fine, driving conditions and annual vehicle-miles of travel (VMT), affect the incidence of traffic fatalities. Econometric models are developed and the estimates are obtained from a general-to-specific specification search based upon all the diagnostic tests in order to increase the probability of selecting models which are statistically reliable. The empirical results show ...


Revenue Adequacy: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, John Mayo 2014 Georgetown University

Revenue Adequacy: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, John Mayo

John W Mayo

Abstract: The concept of “revenue adequacy” made its way into the legal governance of the rail industry prior to the industry’s substantial deregulation via the Staggers Rail Act in 1980. This seemingly quiet feature of rail legislation has, however, increasingly grown central to the regulatory-deregulatory fault line in the 21st century rail industry. This paper examines the concept of revenue adequacy, a benchmark of United States railroad firms' financial performance calculated annually by regulatory oversight bodies. The paper addresses questions around the origins, measurement, informational provisions, value and policy benefits and costs of revenue adequacy. An examination of the ...
