It looks to me like this is authorized under New York State's Executive Law Section 24. The text is long, but I think it addresses most of the points in your question. The law allows the chief executive of a local government (e.g. mayor of a city) to declare a local state of emergency "in the event of a disaster, rioting, catastrophe, or similar public ...

In addition to the answer by @Nij, this would be like people taking potentially offensive weapons to and from martial arts events. I was taught that any offensive weapons should be carried in a bag, at the bottom of a separate bag. This was to make it hard (and shown to be hard) to access. I would do a similar thing with your arrows. From my limited ...

If the train operator allows it, yes, you would be permitted to do so. There are no laws specifically against the carrying of bows and/or arrows, nor is a licence required for their purchase. Bows can be carried openly with less issue, but arrows (because of their ease of use as a weapon) should be stored securely and safely, because this protects you and ...

Very few terms have a single "legal" definition or meaning that applies to all laws, and can be looked up as if in a dictionary. Rather, when a specific meaning is needed in connection with a particular law, that law will include a definition. But that definition will often not apply to the use of the same term in other laws or other contexts. Here I ...

There are several plausible possibilities. This is a scam and isn't actually from the public transit authorities, in which case paying them hasn't helped you, and has contributed to this being a problem in the future for others. The payment information may have some subtle differences from the correct information and may actually go to the fraudster. The ...

Unfortunately, your chances are nil. There are panels on every metro station where tickets and fares are listed, and on those a summary of the conditions is posted and a pointer to where to get the full conditions: not only the web but also at the customer centers. Nonetheless, the ATM ticket conditions are also published at the DOGC, short for Diari ...

Assuming we're talking about U.S. jurisdiction due to your location, some aspects of your question are addressed in this Professional Marine article from June-July 2018, which generally notes that your autonomous boat will still have to comply with any regulations for vessels of its size and speed in terms of things such as operational control, visibility, ...

The National Fire Protection Association is an international organization that publishes standards related to fire safety as well as rescue services provided by emergency services. They publish a standard, NFPA 1710, which outlines emergency response time goals. Unfortunately, the only places I can find the actual standard requires membership in the NFPA to ...

Yes But not because they are mandated, just because your car has one. Because there is one factory fitted and it is a piece of safety equipment anyone you pay to maintain your car would be negligent if they didn’t make sure it’s working.

First, the right to travel is not specifically enumerated in the Constitution. The right exists under the Privileges and Immunity Clause which states "The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States." Since Corfield v. Coryell, 6 Fed. Cas. 546 (1823) freedom of movement has been ...

Self-driving cars (aka Driverless Cars) are being researched widely by different companies. The Nevada State was the first one to allow such cars to be tested in the roads. Google is behind this achievement. Similarly to Uber and some other apps that impact the way we live, each country will have it's fair time of court to debate whether driverless cars are ...

Yes because Texas adopted the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 571.108; TX Inspection Procedure Chapter 4, 04.20.28 Passenger cars manufactured 1986 – Newer: 3 stop lamps required Light trucks/SUVs under 80” wide, manufactured 1994 – Newer: 3 stop lamps required per DPS Further Backed by Caselaw https://caselaw.findlaw.com/tx-court-of-appeals/1644657....

Available evidence is that the business relationship is between you and Xiaozhufeifei, but Aliexpress may assist you. Disputes have to be initiated within 60 days and you may have a few days left. You might get a refund, except if you contributed to the delivery delay (gave the wrong address for example), or non-arrival was due to exceptional circumstances ...

I decided to contact the train operator, Northern, by email with this question. This is their response: You can take your secured bow and arrows on the train. The limitations are not what you are carrying but the bulk of the items.

No. The requirement for air passengers to undergo a security inspection is imposed at 49 CFR 1540.107(a). This imposes the security screening as a condition of entering the sterile area of the airport and of boarding an aircraft: (a) No individual may enter a sterile area or board an aircraft without submitting to the screening and inspection of his or ...

Regulation of public safety is generally reserved to the states, with the federal government having an interest only if a state line is crossed or if it involves a federal property. You mention it was BART in San Francisco, so the primary regulator is California. Not being expert on California, I'm not sure how much power has been delegated to county or ...

As explained by @DaleM the correct analysis is to look at how the relevant phrases and used in the context of the court cases creating the judicially created constitutional right to travel. In practice, if there is some reasonably feasible means by which a person can travel to a state, then the right is not abridged. But, if a state created legal barriers ...

A multi-lane road that is posted at 30 MPH, and people regularly go 60-70 miles per hour? Are there many accidents? If not, I would argue that everyone is wasting twice as much time on that stretch of road than they should, and perhaps the police tacitly agree. Police officers don't like to enforce laws that don't negatively affect public good (such as ...

I see that this question has been migrated from Politics.SE, but I'd argue that's the better forum for this question. We're talking about finding a way to enforce the law, but the options available to you are pretty solidly in the political category. What you're doing is probably the best way to go. The state government is unlikely to do much, so stay on ...

Become a police officer Law enforcement has wide discretion about which laws they enforce and which they let slide. This can be done institutionally, with police departments choosing to make this month "crackdown on X month", and individually. So long as this is not done in a way that unlawfully discriminates this is what the law expects of the enforcement ...

It will very much depend on what you modify. If you only drive on your own land, that's mostly fine (possibly not fine if your own land is a road accessible to the public). What will cause you problems: The manufacturer has a general permission to distribute car models with certain characteristics in your country. There's trouble if your modification ...

Not unless a company was found to have monopoly power one market and was then found to be using the monopoly in the first market to unfairly monopolize a second market. This is called “tying”, from Wikipedia- “ Some kinds of tying, especially by contract, have historically been regarded as anti-competitive practices. The basic idea is that consumers are ...

Under New York State law, as an example, the definitions of none of those terms implicates commerce or excludes noncommercial concerns: transportation Not defined by statute.

It seems your friend can submit a Wage Complaint form to the Bureau of Labor Law Compliance and have some recourse under section 9.1 of the Wage Payment and Collection Law. If your friend is in the right and the company doesn't follow through properly they could be liable for even more money than what they owe him, though there is also the possibility of a ...

disclaimer: As stated in your question it's very hard to find information about the law on this topic because there's a lot of contradictory sources, so this answer will rely on company policy. I did do a couple of searches for Singapore Statutes and was unable to find any laws about eating or drinking on a bus. The SBS states(section 4, subsection 4.10): ...

"Ordinarily used" means its ordinary use. The usage that is normal for a bicycle lane is to ride bicycles in it. That remains true even if no bicycles are ever actually ridden on it. The law you quote directly states that it is part of the roadway. The definition doesn't require the bicycle lane to meet all of the conditions listed, just at least one of ...

It is legal to take photos/videos from anywhere you have permission from the controller to do so - the bus company presumably gives themselves permission to take photos on their own buses. It is legal to do whatever you like with your own photos including displaying them on a monitor (subject to any illegality in the subject itself e.g. Child pornography). ...
