"The new policy has proven unpopular in the Netherlands. In a survey for TV guide EenVandaag, 46% of respondents said they did not plan to stick to it. Dutch media quoted individual drivers as saying they are prepared to accept the fines."

"A 'rotten' measure

By that time, however, the government had already launched a program for the construction of 75,000 new apartments by the end of 2020 to help alleviate the housing shortage. Nitrogen compounds are also released during construction, but stopping the program was out of the question, so Rutte had to make cuts elsewhere. Most of these emissions come from the agricultural sector — 46% according to calculations by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). Farmers now resort to less protein-rich feed to reduce emissions, a begrudging concession by the Christian Democrats (CDA), Rutte's coalition partner."

Do you think auto insurance companies should have right to offer or demand full time surveillance from their customers? Would you do it?

"A driver who was ticketed for speeding on the Malahat Highway near Langford, B.C., has been cleared, after arguing he had no choice but to speed in order to get away from a semi-trailer coming down the hill behind him.

Gabriel Milne was pulled over after an RCMP officer on patrol caught him breaking the speed limit in a passing lane on the Malahat Highway, just outside Langford, B.C., on March 26, 2019.

Milne was charged with speeding under the Motor Vehicle Act, but fought the charge in B.C. Provincial Court. Using the defence of necessity, he argued he had to speed to protect his personal safety.

Justice Hunter Gordon sided with Milne in his decision last week, changing his mind after an initial "gut reaction" told him to dismiss the argument.

"[Milne] honestly believed, on reasonable ground, that he faced a situation of imminent peril that left no reasonable legal alternative open," wrote Gordon."

@MineerBrett Keep in mind, health officials are also prone to run with their own agendas. Thinking traffic safety in BC which has been hijacked and now tilts in favour of cyclists and pedestrians to the detriment of drivers.
