We are very concerned about that and we want to do everything we can about that’” he said.From Monday, September 19 to October 1, associated local businesses will be running special offers on handsfree kits for drivers to install and use in their cars.“We want to encourage people to avail of the offers and to cease the practice of holding a phone while driving” Inspector Reidy said after he said that 1,996 people have been detected committing the offence so far in 2016.Chief Superintendent Dave Sheahan said that the Limerick divisional traffic corp had “carried out a number of blitz detections and were catching 40 or 50 people using their mobiles while driving.“That should not be part of our job. We want to get the message across but, for some reason, it is not getting out there.“The aim of the initiative introduced by Inspector Reidy and local mobile phone business affiliated to Limerick Chamber is to create awareness rather than having people getting caught.“We want people to have the information. It is important to convince people that the idea of using a mobile phone while driving is a non-runner and everyone knows how dangerous it is but yet people still try to do it.“If you look at some of the hard hitting advertisements on radio and television that are out there now, it’s hard to understand why the message isn’t getting through” Supt Sheahan said.“I know in my house some people turn the television off because the advertisements are so graphic and hard hitting. What we are trying to do with this initiative is to try and create that extra awareness. We are not out there to try and catch people using their mobile phone. We are out there trying to save their lives.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is pushing back at efforts to force its withdrawal of a proposed rule to amend its interpretation of the Fair Housing Act’s disparate impact standard, according to a piece from Politico.In announcing the proposed rule last August, HUD insisted it would not impact its determinations of intentional discrimination, citing a 2015 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that upheld the use of the “disparate impact” theory to establish liability under the Fair Housing Act for business policies and local ordinances, even if the policy or ordinance was neutral but still resulted in a disproportionate impact on a protected class without legally sufficient justification.HUD noted at the time that the proposed disparate impact rule would provide a “framework for establishing legal liability for facially neutral practices that have unintended discriminatory effects on classes of persons protected under the Fair Housing Act.”For the past few weeks, HUD has been pressured by executives within the real estate finance industry to rescind its proposed rule. Bank of America Vice Chairman Anne Finucane expressed her concerns in a letter to Federal Housing Commissioner Brian D. Montgomery, citing the national protests for social equality following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.“Over the last several weeks, our nation has experienced a series of tragic events that have led to a collective heightened awareness of systemic racism,” Finucane wrote. “We have all witnessed the expressions of anguish and anger about what has happened and have developed a greater understanding of and sensitivity to the historical roots of those feelings … Given the importance of this moment in history and the very real prospect of progress, we respectfully urge that this is not a time for actions, however well-intentioned, that some will interpret as diminishing hard-fought protections. Rather, it is a time for thoughtful reflection so that we can drive meaningful progress on equity and inclusion.”Michael DeVito, EVP and Head of Home Lending at Wells Fargo, sent a letter to HUD Secretary Dr. Benjamin Carson expressing his concern on the timing of the proposed rule.“We appreciate HUD’s efforts to draft the proposed rule, and we support a disparateimpact framework that facilitates the expansion of housing opportunities to underserved communities and provides a clear legal framework to address discrimination,” DeVito wrote. “To achieve that goal, HUD should acknowledge that Americans’ attention to racial discrimination is more pronounced and expansive than when the comment period was open last year. People across the country have considered more closely that centuries of discrimination, segregation, and economic disenfranchisement have lasting impacts today, including discriminatory effects in housing.”The National Association of Realtors (NAR) also sent a letter to Carson stating the proposed rule is coming at the wrong time.“While there is debate … as to whether additional clarity is needed with respect to disparate impact claims, there is broad consensus across the country that now is not the time to issue a regulation that could hinder further progress toward addressing ongoing systemic racism,” wrote NAR President Vince Malta. “We believe this is the time to explore how we may work together to eliminate unnecessary barriers to housing opportunity and advance policies that allow more Americans to fully participate in the American Dream … and respectfully ask that HUD withdraw its proposed rule to amend its interpretation of the Fair Housing Act’s disparate impact standard.”Rocke Andrews, president of the National Association of Mortgage Brokers, also expressed disappointment with HUD’s actions.“Disparate impact in the past has been used to some think unfairly penalize lenders/banks for unintended discrimination,” he said. “Lenders believe the discrimination should be brought to their view and allowed to correct while previous administration at CFPB believed the best way to get their message out (and generate income) was fines. In the present pandemic environment and still unequal distribution of housing among minorities it is thought not to be the best time to eliminate this tool.”Executives from Citi, and Quicken Loans also voiced concern over the proposed rule going into effect. Nikitra Bailey, EVP at the Center for Responsible Lending, praised the industry leaders for speaking up on the issue.“These industry leaders recognize that we can’t backtrack on disparate impact theory at a time when our nation is facing a reckoning over structural racism and inequality,” Bailey said. “Doing so will only perpetuate racial wealth and homeownership gaps … HUD’s move shifts the burden of proof in cases of discrimination from the powerful to the vulnerable, undoing decades of legal precedent and diminishing opportunities for hardworking families to build and hold wealth. HUD must reverse course and ensure that we all live in inclusive communities with an ability to share in the nation’s prosperity.”Carson responded to the claims during an interview with Yahoo.“I’m very glad that Bank of America is interested in this issue,” he said “And you know, they could do a whole lot to improve the situation for minorities by rejoining the FHA’s program for housing. FHA, as you know, is the largest backer of insurance for forward mortgages for minorities, for first-time homebuyers, doing over a million cases last year. Bank of America did about 2,200. So, if they really want to have an impact, this is what they should be thinking about, rather than criticizing a program that they haven’t even seen and don’t know anything about.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / HUD Responds to Fair Housing Act Criticismscenter_img Tagged with: Fair Housing Act HUD Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Phil Hall Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save HUD Responds to Fair Housing Act Criticisms Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Fair Housing Act HUD 2020-07-16 Mike Albanese The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Also, through its robots, Toyota will support event operations and provide unique experiences, exceeding the general notion of what mobility has meant for the Games while continuing to challenge itself to provide “Mobility for All” by offering various mobility solutions to make Tokyo 2020 a one-of-a-kind event.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
