first_imgA Judge has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a businesswoman after giving her 13 warnings to pay back a credit union loan.Judy Hannon was due to appear at Letterkenny District Court today to answer a summons for failing to comply with an installment order from 2010.Ms Hannon, 48, had been ordered to pay back €30 per week on a loan of €5,241 from Letterkenny Credit Union. However Ms Hannon, of Marcella House, Gortlee, Letterkenny, has paid back just €1,640 in those four years – the last payment being in February of this year.Solicitor for Letterkenny Credit Union, Mr Patsy Gallagher, said his client only brought members to court as a last resort.He said “It is not the policy of the credit union to seek committal orders but their hands are tied for over two years now.“There is a deliberate attempt not to engage and on the 11th hour to make a sporadic payment. The last payment was in February.“This simply cannot go on. Letterkenny Credit union has spent a lot of time and money intrying to get this woman back on track,” he said.Mr Gallagher also referred to the fact that Ms Hannon was a founding director of the Moolicious Food Company which had received significant grant aid.Defense solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had genuinely mixed up her dates and was due to be in court.He said “The prospect of sending this lady to prison might not be a good fit considering her circumstances.”Judge Paul Kelly said he could not make a committal order against Ms Hannon unless she was present in court.Instead he issued a bench warrant for her arrest but warned that he will be disposed to a committal order in the case.Speaking after the case Mr Gordon Randles, General Manager of Letterkenny Credit Union, said that unfortunately this is an extreme case where all attempts to have on going communication with the member were exhausted.“The Credit Unions objective is at all times to work with members with respect to their financial position, but in this case the member has repeatedly failed to adhere to court orders and also to provide financial information requested by the court.“Letterkenny Credit Union only engage in the legal process for debt recovery as a last resort.”JUDGE ORDERS ARREST OF WOMAN FOR NOT PAYING CREDIT UNION LOAN – AFTER 13 WARNINGS was last modified: October 2nd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:arrestcredit unionjudy hannonletterkennynon paymentlast_img read more

Here’s how self-driving cars could impact your city’s planning

first_imgHow IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … Surveillance at the Heart of Smart Cities Related Posts Tags:#autonomous cars#driverless cars#Internet of Things#IoT#Self-Driving#Smart Cities#smart city#urban planning IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A…center_img How Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… As the future of self-driving cars continues to evolve, many of the largest tech companies, auto industries, and city planners around the world are working to prepare for the impacts that autonomous cars will have across all sectors.Since transportation is a central piece of our society, various thought-leaders and industry experts are working together to ensure public safety and find a way to have future technological advancements improve the economy.See also: What is the future of self-driving regulation?Across the related businesses, hundreds of billions of dollars is being invested in research and development. This investment of both technology and assets are looking to bring the promise of a cleaner, safer, and more efficient method to travel.How autonomous cars could change policySeveral groups across the world are voicing their concerns on how autonomous cars will impact societies and the public good. Everything from social equality, cyber security, and even how our food is farmed will be changed by emerging technology associated with autonomous vehicles.Increased urban sprawlAutonomous vehicles will allow individuals to get more work done as they commute to and from the office since they won’t have to spend their time and energy doing something other than driving.This will make longer commuting less stressful so that we could see more vehicle traffic in downtown areas.Cities are witnessing an inversion of investment. As individuals and jobs return to downtowns, the demands to replace surface parking lots with mid and high density, mixed-use development increases.Autonomous vehicles will propel the shrinking importance of suburban areas since the need to be located within proximity of downtown epicenters will not be needed.As more people move out of suburbia, these areas will witness economic depressions and will have a difficult time maintaining basic amenities for remaining residents.Increased parking construction footprintAs more people commute longer distances to work in their autonomous vehicles, cities will be pressured to develop larger and more parking areas to accommodate the increased traffic.Parking is not an option for major cities, and providing convenient parking is a central focus for cities like Houston, TX, Little Rock, AR, and Washington, DC.These cities have allocated more than half their land area to highways, streets, and parking areas. This type of land allocation will have wide-reaching repercussions on the environment, low-income communities, and cultural development in the vicinity.Shifting commerce & service developmentAs autonomous car technology continues to evolve, many of the largest automakers are placing their bets that future vehicles will run on electricity and stored in onboard batteries.This exciting advancement will reduce America’s dependency on foreign oil for remote fueling stations, but it will also change the way cities zone construction sites that will support city transportation.In place of stand-alone gas stations, many parking lots will integrate electric refueling stations. Unlike the single purpose asphalt resting spots of today’s parking lots, future parking areas will double as recharging centers.See also: Ford patents removable steering wheel for self-driving carsCharging stations and induction pads in on-street spaces are going to be a vital part of the utility infrastructure of the near future.The land use implication here is that on-street parking will continue to supply separation between moving cars and bicyclists and pedestrians.Improved city aesthetics, pedestrian safety & air qualityAs autonomous cars account for the majority of vehicles on our public roads, many city planners will be able to use more aesthetically appealing development plans.This will not only incorporate more trees and other elements since planners won’t have to anticipate the human error. Also, urban planners can also integrate designs that are pedestrian friendly.Air quality in our cities will also improve once fossil fuels are now not a portion of the exhaust system, improving the environmental surroundings and people’s health.Self-driving the future of urban planning?The future of city planning looks bright, and the evolution of self-driving car technology means that our cities will see dramatic impacts moving forward.It is our responsibility to ensure that our local lawmakers are setting proactive regulations to protect public safety and keep up with the ever-changing environment of emerging technology.
