Click it or Ticket campaign in Wellington brings 162 safety belt citations

first_imgSubmitted to Sumner Newscow — During the Click It or Ticket Campaign just completed, Wellington Police conducted overtime saturation patrols to aggressively enforce Kansas occupant restraint, texting, impaired driving, and other traffic laws.  During the campaign, officers wrote 162 safety belt citations, 2 child restraint citations, 9 Drivers License violations and 3 Insurance violations.  A total of 144 vehicle stops were made during the campaign.According to Police Chief Tracy Heath, “Stops and tickets are meant to teach.  If you were stopped, I hope you have learned from your experience.  If so, we have made the roads a little safer for you and those you share the road with.  We will continue to do that because, while the Click It or Ticket campaign may be over, traffic enforcement is never over.”Click It or Ticket was supported by a grant to Wellington Police Department from the Kansas Department of Transportation.

We supported your Police department donut drive. Why not spend your time solving real crime instead of harassing the taxpayers? Government intrusion into our lives is getting out of hand. Personal freedom is dying from this type of government action against citizens rights. A crime, really? Not wearing a seatbelt owned by you, in your own car, that you own now is the business of big government. Is this now Russia?

Report Reply 3 replies · active 375 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down Azeeez Ansari · 375 weeks ago realistically if it is your vehicle you should have the right to wear your seat belt or not. Sure it may save a few lives here and there but the fact of the matter is the campaign seems more about revenue generation and “shopping” for reasons to cite additional fines and tickets from searching vehicles. I am not exactly sure how much it costs for a seatbelt ticket maybe $10.00? It will cost more to pay the officer with OUR tax dollars and to process it through court in labor than the ticket is worth. How much overtime are we as taxpayers having to pay so they can harass citizens. Report Reply 1 reply · active 375 weeks ago -1 Vote up Vote down Missing the Point · 375 weeks ago This isn’t a personal rights issue, it’s a safety/cost issue. You want to complain about a $10 ticket, but the cost to insure a driver who has an accident without wearing a seatbelt is significantly higher in most cases than that of a seatbelted driver. Pair that with the healthcare costs related to such an accident, which will in turn continue to contribute to the rising cost of health insurance. These campaigns lead to a higher level of participation by drivers and riders, which in turn will save lives, and help reduce the insurance costs associated with auto and health.

‘I know I can get better’ – VCB seeks improvements as she focuses on 2017

first_img MAIN FOCUS Despite an endearing career which began with gold medals at the World Youth Championships in1999, eight-time Olympic medallist Veronica Campbell-Brown maintains a hunger to keep improving. The veteran athlete, though failing to win an individual medal at the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil, has no plans to quit just yet. “Not right now,” she said when asked about retirement. “I am focusing on 2017. After 2017, I will re-evaluate and see. I am taking it one year at a time,” said the decorated sprinter. “Right now, my main focus is staying healthy and training hard and preparing for next season. I am just taking it one day at a time and just push myself as hard as I can, and just hope for a great 2017,” she told The Gleaner at a ceremony for the country’s Olympic and Paralympics athletes at the National Indoor Sports Centre last Saturday night. Ahead of next year’s IAAF World Championships, Campbell-Brown, a three-time World champion, is taking things step by step. “The first step is to make the Jamaican team, so that is my main focus, then go from there,” stressed Campbell-Brown, who is coached by her husband, Omar Brown, who was also her schoolmate at Vere Technical. “We know each other since high school, and so he understands me well and I understand him well, so it’s working out well,” she reasoned. The 34-year-old athlete holds personal bests of 10.76 seconds in the 100m and 21.74 seconds for the 200m. “I know I can get better, I don’t know what God has in store and He has been directing my path. I just need to take care of what I need to do; I have a lot of things to improve on as an athlete,” she pointed out. “Although I have been doing this for so long, I still have stuff that I see I can improve on and if I can really get those things done then I can do better,” she said. The athlete, who has numerous accolades and titles, is the second woman in history to win two consecutive Olympic 200m events after Barbel Wockel of Germany. “Last year overall was a good year. I can’t complain, I have to give thanks for everything. “I just know I have a lot of things to work on going forward, and that is always good when you finish your season and know that you have stuff to improve and to improve performances,” Campbell-Brown summarised. She added that she started last season well, but hit some roadblocks. She intends to get back to the top of her game soon. “I didn’t get the result I wanted, but that’s why I say it’s a good place to start and know exactly how to take care of things to move forward,” she emphasised. Meanwhile, Campbell-Brown who will be one of four athletes including to be honoured with statues at the National Stadium over the next two years, said she is elated. “That’s awesome, that is an extraordinary accomplishment. I give God all the glory for that, and I thank all the people for making it possible, all those who have supported me over the years and seen it fit for me to be honoured in that way,” she explained. The other athletes who will be recognised with statues are Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Asafa Powell.last_img read more

Zuma, Putin discuss ways of strengthening ties

first_img29 August 2014South African President Jacob Zuma and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed various ways of strengthening ties between their two countries during a meeting at the Novo-Ogarevo presidential residence outside Moscow on Thursday.According to a statement by the Presidency, Putin stressed the need for the two governments to work on implementing the agreements signed during his state visit to South Africa last year, while calling for the strengthening of tourism, cultural and educational exchanges.He also commended the work that had been done by the Russia-South Africa Business Council, which resulted in a 13% increase in trade between South Africa and Russia in 2013, and asked for the country’s assistance in taking over the leadership of the Brics (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) grouping next year.Zuma, for his part, appealed to Putin for Russia’s support in South Africa’s drive to improve the delivery of water, sanitation and energy in the country, and to tackle the challenges it faced in education and agriculture.He briefed Putin on the security situation in Africa, and requested support for establishing the African Capacity for Immediate Response to Crises, a temporary standby force capable of responding quickly to crisis situations in Africa.Zuma also raised the matter of the repatriation of the remains of South African liberation heroes, including Ivor David Jones, JB Marks and Moses Kotane, who are buried in Russia.“Both Presidents committed themselves to working together in … further cementing the existing warm relations between the two countries for the economic and social development of their peoples,” the Presidency said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Web Trend Map 4 Goes Interactive, Drops July 14th

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#NYT#Trends#web Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market doug coleman 1 UPDATE: According to a recent iA Twitter update the interactive Web Trend Map 4 will open for beta testers tomorrow if it can solve some server problems. We were very excited earlier this year when RWW made its way onto the latest edition of the Web Trend Map. For those of you unfamiliar with this map, it “plots the Internet’s leading names and domains onto the Tokyo Metro map. Domains and personalities are carefully selected through dialogue with map enthusiasts, and every domain is evaluated based on traffic, revenue, and character”. Information architecture company iA built this awesome visualization and we have learned that it is about to roll out an interactive version of its map later this month. Thanks to a tip from RWW reader @CleverClogs, we discovered that Tokyo based iA, who has been working on an interactive version of its Web Trend Map 4 since early June, will launch on July 14th. According to iA, “the idea is simple: Track the online tends in real time, deliver them in personalized and localized isometric maps. The technology is kind of a complicated story; but of course, we’ll give our best to make the interface as simple as the idea”. No further details were given at press time, but we did find another clue on the company’s Flickr photostream; “July 14th is the launch day of the interactive Webtrendmap. I hope we can launch the new iA site at the same time…our website might look somewhat like this (WTM spoiler alert)”:last_img read more

Popular BitTorrent Client Transmission Gets an iPhone App

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… audrey watters 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Apple#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting In what may prove to be the first “yanked from the App Store” story of 2011, TorrentFreak reports that there’s a new BitTorrent app available for iPhone users. The app, iControlbits (iTunes link), offers an interface for Transmission, the popular BitTorrent client for Mac. The iControlbits app allows you to control your BitTorrent downloads remotely, with an interface far improved over the alternative – the mobile web version of Transmission.According to TorrentFreak, frustrations with the features (or lack of features) on the mobile site prompted developer Luka Hlastec to create a native remote access app. iControlbits controls the client daemon via the RPC protocol. Using the app, you can start, stop, pause and remove transfers, as well as connect to multiple Transmission “servers” and change some of your download options. The app costs $1.99, and Hlastec says he plans to add more features soon, including the ability to add new downloads to your queue. But a new version of the app would have to pass Apple’s scrutiny, and BitTorrent apps have historically faced rejection and removal from the iTunes store. An app with functionality similar to iControlbits made it into the store in October, but was booted just three days later. Like iControlbits, that app avoided the word “BitTorrent” in its name and description, something that only saved it for a short time.Hopefully iControlbits will have better luck.last_img read more
