AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE I have found some cases that can be utilized for defense purposes and also key parts of the Motor Vehicles Act. Pitezel v.

Day NoWD35290… failure to keep proper lookout... (contributory) Mo.

He did not have any outer clothing and was shoeless. Before the defendants left, they put Stafford’s shoes and jacket on the shoulder of the highway. Stafford wore glasses, which was in the car, but when the defendants left, they either inadvertently or purposely did not give them to Stafford. Michael W. Blake, a college student, was driving on the same highway at a reasonable speed and saw Stafford in the middle of the road with his hands in the air. Blake could not stop in time or avoid hitting him, therefore, Stafford was hit by Blake’s car and died.
Is the Wisconsin law violating the commerce clause of the United States Constitution? Yes, The Wisconsin statue is not constitutional. The interstate commerce clause shows this in Article I, Section 9 states, “No preference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue to the ports of one state over those of another; nor shall vessels bound to, or from, on state, be obligated to enter, clear, or pay duties in another state”. This clearly shows that the state of Wisconsin cannot charge fines for straight mudguards of $500 each time the driver enters the state. Also, Wisconsin can’t fine for additional $5,000 for straight mudguards if a driver obtains five such violations of Wisconsin law.
Earshad Jafar Legal Studies Period 8 January 11th, 2012 Terry C. O’Neal is guilty in the killing of Nicole Anderson because he was not supposed to be driving in the first place to the pizzeria. In the state of New York when you have a permit you are only suppose to drive when a license driver except when they are going to school then back home and no where else.

Under Secret Service regulations the agent on the passenger side of the front seat was supposed to protect President Kennedy by pushing the president down or by throwing his body over the president's. The agent did neither. The agent driving the limousine was supposed to accelerate the limousine and speed away from dangers such as sniper fire. However, during the entire time that rifle bullets were whizzing into the open limousine the driver failed to accelerate, and may have even slowed down. Pictures taken during the shooting, show that the limousine's brake lights were on.
If you were to get a search warrant, it will be too late. A police officer can stop your vehicle if you are violating a traffic violation. Police officers are also able to make visible inspection. A traffic violation itself, does not allow police officers to search an entire
Why some states such as my own force the seatbelt law would but yet let several motor cycle riders drive down a road without a helmet? I have to say, it is ridiculous. Truthfully, I believe that a driver to a car should have to wear a helmet as well as a seatbelt and to be honest; I don’t see anything wrong with a motorcyclist also having to wear the helmet “By Law”. I know it would be somewhat dangerous for the motorcyclist to wear a seatbelt considering if the person driving was to have a accident, they are normally thrown in mid air and the bike may possibly fall down up on he or she.
