Long story short there was a protest in my city a few days ago and a white woman tried running several of us over with her car. Police claimed it didn’t happen since there was no report so myself and a few others filled out a police report. Chances are, nothing will come of it as we are all Black and Indigenous folks and she is a white woman . But I am also grappling with this. I, of course don’t support the police or our judicial system. I believe in transformative justice rather than punitive “justice”. But at the same time, I don’t give a fuck about white folks and their racist antics and I’m kind of okay if she gets charged.
Ultimately I’d rather this woman go through transformative justice and make amends with our communities but I’m also petty and wouldn’t mind her having a criminal record.
I'm a mechanical engineering student and I know generally how HEVs operate, but I can't seem to find anywhere that explicitly explains how torques are "added together" to increase overall torque of the vehicle.
Is there a particular device that allows two shafts to drive one (thus adding their torques), and does that mean that both these shafts would need to have the same rotational velocity to avoid excess torsion on the driven shaft?
Any explanation would be greatly appreciated!
I've been trying to get my car license renewed for the past 3-4 weeks now but the lines at the traffic departments/municipal buildings (various areas) are just insane (+-40 to 50 people waiting outside at around 8am each time I've been). Can anyone recommend a traffic department (that they've been to lately - post lockdown) with a fairly quick turnaround?
I was involved in an MVA a few days ago. Other driver, we will call Bob, was at fault fully and was deemed at fault by the state trooper. Insurance deemed Bob was at fault. Of course, a bunch of insurance BS is occurring currently and I am just trying to figure out logistical things. If my vehicle is deemed repairable, I will have, at minimum, a rental for 2 months. Insurance will pay the full rental up to $1,500, which will run out very soon and gives me about less than a month with one. After that, it is all out of pocket. After the repairs are made, again if they can be, my vehicle's value will be down substantially. My family made a long trip to the accident site to take me to my apartment because there were no transportation options available since it happened in the middle of nowhere, and made another long trip down to get a rental car situated so I can continue to go to work.
With all this being said... I am planning on consulting a law professional to see what can be done regarding the rest of the payment for a rental car, compensation for the lost value of the asset, and emotional distress caused by this incident to all of my family members and myself. Would these be good things to go after? If not, why is it so? Also, am I missing anything "important" to add or consider exploring with the current situation I am in?
I thought I remembered reading somewhere in Virginia's laws that if you have concealed carry permit you're able to carry concealed while in your vehicle without needing to secure it in a glove compartment or center console.
Per USCCA though, it appears that regardless of permit, the firearm needs to be concealed. USCCA references the following law as support: https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title18.2/chapter7/section18.2-308/
I'm just wondering if anyone could provide some additional clarity on the matter as it seems having to holster and unholster every time you get into and out of your vehicle is a good way to attract attention to the fact that you're carrying.
