New York State Law: 3 inches of snow on the Car is illegal!

3inches-snow-on-car

The new amended law of 17th January 2017 that was sponsored and co-sponsored by members of the Committee of Transportation and we’re delivered to the New York State Assembly. This law which contains all in three and set a standard that is ridiculous, but also says something about the Metropolitan life New York.

When their State Representatives needs this measure against snow:

“§ 1229 e. Clearance of snow, sleet, and hail. No person shall operate a motor vehicle on a public street or highway while there is an accumulation of snow, sleet, or hail on the roof or cargo bed surfaces thereof, whether of any occupant compartment, trailer,  or other cargo compartment in excess of three inches.

8 2. The removal of accumulated snow, sleet, or hail required by subdivision one of this section shall not apply during the falling of snow, sleet, or hail or within three hours after the cessation of the falling thereof”

The New York State officials and Representatives must be afraid of snow. When 3 inches is an issue, if you convert from inches it is estimated to be 7.62 cm. In Norway you have to have 30-40 cm on the roof of a moving car if you should get fined or called traffic-danger. So the reasonable doubt of snowfall and such is different between the State of New York and Norway. In Canada, which is also famous for much snow the rules are about 7-10 cm of snow. Therefore the New Yorkers are living very fragile lives and fearful on their roads. If not that is what their representatives belief.

That cars full of ice and snow is a danger, it’s without a doubt since the driver need as much vision and clear space to see the other vehicles and movement while driving. As a Scandinavian I know about the dangers and the feeling of driving with little window who is cleared before driving. When being a passenger in car with little cleared window you feel unsecure because of the near-enough vision of the driver while driving on the road.

So that a driver should focus on clearing his windows and warming up his car to unfreeze the windows, should be common sense, but that 3 inches is very little and even nearly any snow. Shows how the New Yorkers aren’t really used to snow or driving in snow. If not how little the representatives believe the drivers and such of New York are capable, when the Norwegian and Canadian laws are more lenient. There have to very little and nearly any snowfall before the drivers has to stop and clear the windows.

So New Yorkers with cars. Strict traffic rules are apparently your thing! Peace.

What gives? (Latest thoughts of the saga between Ukraine and Russia)

While we all should enjoy the time we living in, it’s hard to sometimes see the fix. Fixing the issues and making the world a better place. Crimean peninsula is now official from the Russian side, a separate entity – which is not a part of Ukraine anymore. Wesley Snipes didn’t show up. The western reaction to it all is meager economic sanctions on the top leaders of the Russian regime. Ukraine is on their side in the trenches and hoping for an outcome to their sovereignty as a single nation. They has been trespassed over the border with arms and taken control over their territory.

Here we are in point where the aggression from Moscow is at final position and carving the map of Europe again. Russia and Vladimir Putin the President is showing his hand. Not caring about what world thinks of his actions. Barrack Obama and David Cameroon have acted but softly… The same has the Norwegian and other Scandinavian countries. The Polish fears with such a close tie to the Russian Federation that they might act, the same does the Baltic nations. Surprisingly, the NATO is proving some moves with sending planes to Poland. All the military co-operation which was scheduled between Russia and the western countries has shut that down. The other complications are simply closing the deals and agreements between them. So all the barriers that has been driven down since the cold-war is now crumbling. Western hemisphere is closing the gates building up shadow walls, as long it’s not hurting their economies, since that is unstable still after the economic crash of 2008. That has made a difference and also connected the world. The outsourcing and the modern day industry is now in another stage.

Gazproom is one of the big companies who supply Europe with Gas. Not only giving money to Schalke04 and also Champions League. We’ll all going to see that tonight before the match between Manchester United – Olympiacos on Old Trafford. We all know that the Oligarcs of Russia is spending the leftover in London and especially in “the City”.

We can eat our chips and I wonder about the next move of both the western hemisphere and the Russia. So here we are. What that will bust first and the reactions. What is the next move of Russians? That is the difference then that the Presidential aid of Russia Vladislav Surkov will only main thing is about Tupac and few other celebrities that he don’t need to access to the country to listen to. So there we have it. The meager response and economic sanctions isn’t working if that’s the ones actions we can expect. Then I can say: “that it won’t matter”. Even though we wish differently, the end scenario is that Crimea will end up in Russia. Russia can VETO in the United Nation’s Security Council so the issues is server. UN can’t make a fuss or stress anything because of how the organization is built up!

The NATO and the western hemisphere are stuck. They have already showed the force of the small sanctions given to them. Putin knew this was coming. He’s a sly man who thinks and now that an actions has a chain reaction. Obama and Cameroon isn’t doing much. Angela Merkel isn’t really acting. EU and Ashton aren’t moving in a big way either!

This is the way it is. Ukraine is weak after the turmoil. Ukraine has been through the madness of revolution and kicking the president out of his office for the second time in his career. Russia is playing the big man yet again. It did so in Georgia in 2008. This time they have actually soon annexed it (Crimea). Which entails a lot, where do we go from here? How does this change the world as we know it?

We need some strong remedy over here. So before we go back ancient ways and medieval on ourselves because well, Russia isn’t playing ball. Neither of us know how this is going or where it’s ending up. Ukraine… isn’t up to parts with Russia, not military and economic power. Secondly the bills and tab that Russia has on gas bill was the playing card for this game. We can just see where it goes and how this story ends. Because the end usually has to break even.

There is big stakes on table, how the pot will be squeezed and usually in this game – nobody really wins and those who take the fall usually are the innocent loses their ground. And the winner usually really doesn’t has much to show for it, because of the sense of victory is a weak puzzle. The other loosing part of the tale never gets told and the innocent dies silently like it always does. Because heck! Nobody really cares, and if they do, their microphone are to little, their tv-station has to small of a base or that the newspaper isn’t powerful enough if it doesn’t have naked chicks on page 3-4 and an interview of a porn-star in the middle of the business section!

I know that the last remark wasn’t friendly, but what gives?

Peace!
