NYC sanitation worker used license plates found in trash to avoid $17G in fines, investigators say

A New York City sanitation worker was arrested Wednesday for allegedly putting license plates he found in the trash on his car to avoid paying more than $17,000 in fines.

Jason Rivera, 45, of Staten Island, incurred the penalties for parking and traffic violations as well as unpaid E-Z Pass tolls, authorities said. He faces a charge of grand larceny, the New York Daily News reported.

A criminal complaint said Rivera found the plates in 2016 and gave them to a friend, who then returned them to Rivera a year later, the city Department of Investigation concluded.

“These types of crimes undermine the government’s ability to do its job and maintain a standard of safety on the roads,” said DOI Commissioner Magaret Garnett. “These offenses are particularly egregious when committed by a city employee who used his job as a means to commit a crime.”

Prosecutors say that Rivera racked up 72 parking and traffic violations totaling $5,500, as well as $1,793.50 in unpaid tolls and $10,600 in unpaid fees, the New York Post reported.

The plates were not registered to his vehicle, or any vehicle, the paper reported, making it difficult to determine who was responsible for the fines. The department began an inquiry after receiving a complaint from the Department of Motor Vehicles.

An investigator confronted Rivera about the pocketed plates and said he confessed to using them.

“Misusing New York State license plates, ignoring traffic and parking violations and failing to pay tolls are crimes that will result in arrest and prosecution,” Garnett said.

Rivera is expected back in court on Oct. 10.

Woman seen on video getting Tesla Model 3 chip implanted in arm to start car

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-a8d1324a95604b56bea95035c8283df6 Woman seen on video getting Tesla Model 3 chip implanted in arm to start car Melissa Leon fox-news/person/elon-musk fox-news/odd-news fox-news/auto/make/tesla fox-news/auto fox news fnc/auto fnc b9b0499a-c823-513d-ac57-ff5faab3f8bd article

One Tesla owner is hoping she’ll never lose her car key again.

Amie Dansby recently had her Tesla Model 3’s chip implanted in her forearm. The chip unlocks and starts the car.

Dansby, who goes by “Amie DD” online, is a software engineer, programmer and self-described “passionate technologist,” and now she can reportedly start up her wheels in a unique way.

Dansby uploaded a YouTube video on Aug. 8 titled “Tesla Model 3 Chip Install – Warning There is Blood,” during which she is seen going to a body modification studio and having her car’s RFID chip — encapsulated in a biopolymer — inserted in her arm.

WARNING: VIDEO MAY BE DISTURBING

In another video, “Tesla Model 3 Hack,” Dansby describes how she procured the chip from the card, saying she dissolved the keycard in acetone.

This is not Dansby’s first implanted RFID chip, short for radio-frequency identification.

“A few years ago I got this RFID implant in my hand,” she said in video footage, “and it’s just basic access control.”

“If I were to tap my hand to your phone, it would automatically open a browser and go to my webpage,” Dansby explains. “It also works with my front door.”

When she preordered her Tesla Model 3 a few years ago, Dansby said she found out that the keycard was going to use RFID-based technology to unlock and start the car.

TESLA FIXING ‘DOG MODE’ AFTER OWNER DISCOVERS POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS ISSUE

But when she tried to see if she could upload the software off the Tesla keycard, she discovered that she couldn’t write it to the chip already in her hand, Dansby said.

“So it’s pretty secure. Good job, Tesla,” she joked. “So I’m just going to take the chip that I have in my valet card and encapsulate it, and implant that one in my hand.”

Dansby, who is also a 3D printer and avid cosplayer, told The Verge that the chip works but that the range “isn’t the greatest,” and her arm has to be within an inch of the console.

POLICE: ALLEGED TESLA THIEF CAUGHT AFTER CAR RAN OUT OF POWER

She posted to Twitter on Monday that her forearm was also swollen following the modification.

“My arm was swollen right after (none of my other chip implants read the first few days). I may have upgrades but unfortunately my body still heals at a human rate,” she wrote.

On Aug. 2, Dansby had posted on Hackaday, where she chronicled her yearlong project to biohack the Tesla keycard, saying that the implant “was a success.”

“I didn’t even cry! My yearlong Tesla Model 3 bio implant hack project wouldn’t be possible without Amal at vivokey encasing my chip implant in biopolymer and Pineapple to install it safely. My cyberpunk upgrades are complete,” she wrote.

A brand-new Model 3 starts at $39,740, according to Tesla’s website.

Pennsylvania to become latest state offering gender-neutral IDs

PHILADELPHIA – Last spring, Deter Rose walked into a Philadelphia Driver, and Photo License Center with a “Request for Gender Change” form. Handwritten on the form was a box with the single letter “X” scribbled in under gender.

Rose, a social worker, identifies as a trans-non-binary individual, who prefers gender-neutral pronouns like “they/them/their” and for years felt uncomfortable choosing between the male and female option on the state ID form.

“It didn’t feel very affirming to have to draw in the box, and then not know if PennDOT [Pennsylvania Department of Transportation] would honor the form,” said Rose, “the whole process was scary.”

Nearly one year later, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is expected to change its policy and drivers in the state will have three options when it comes to identifying themselves on their driver’s licenses and state IDs: male, female, and X.

Rose said the change is a big step forward, and a victory for members of the LGBTQ community.

“This change will give people access, and that’s important,” said Rose.

According to Alexis Campbell, a spokesperson for PennDOT the change comes in  response to a growing number of residents asking for gender-neutral ID options and “national trends.”

BILLS TO CURTAIL LGBT RIGHTS ARE FAILING IN US LEGISLATURES 

“PennDOT is glad to offer a license that is inclusive of everybody and can accurately reflect who they are,” said Campbell.

Pennsylvania is part of a growing number of states that are allowing ID holders to choose their gender, or no gender, no matter what their birth certificate says.

Three years ago, no one in the U.S. was legally recognized as neither male or female. Today, seven states and Washington D.C. allow people to change their gender without a doctor’s signature, and 13 states have a policy in place allowing drivers to obtain a gender-neutral marker on their driver’s licenses and identification cards.

Most recently, New Hampshire passed a law creating a gender-neutral option for driver’s licenses, which will take effect in January. Republican Gov. Chris Sununu allowed the bill to become law without his signature on July 10. In Pennsylvania, the Department of Transportation believes it can make the change without action by the General Assembly, said Campbell.

HAWAII POISED TO BECOME NINTH STATE TO HAVE “GENDER X” AS AN OPTION ON DRIVER LICENSES

But there has been pushback by some conservative groups that say the change is impractical and ripe for abuse.

In Pennsylvania, the socially conservative Pennsylvania Family Institute said identification documents are legal documents, which should reflect objective facts, like biological sex. The group also objected to the fact that no documentation would be needed to prove gender identity.

“Proponents of the legislation provide no answers to the many practical questions it raises,” said Michael Geer, president of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, in a statement. “If our state starts discarding biological sex from our identity documents, it will impact law enforcement, insurances, and medical care.”

Republican lawmakers echoed those concerns.

“It’s an unnecessary change,” said Pennsylvania Rep. Tedd Nesbit, R-Mercer County. He said removing a gender marker on IDs could make it more difficult for police to relay identifying information.

State Rep. Lynda Schlegel-Culver, R-Northumberland County, said an immediate concern would be whether the change would create problems in complying with the federal REAL ID requirements.

But PennDOT officials assured drivers this is a change that is long overdue.

TRAVELERS TO BE PROVIDED ‘NONBINARY’ GENDER OPTION BY SOME AIRLINES: REPORT

A National Center for Transgender Equality survey released in 2016, which included 28,000 transgender respondents, found 69 percent of Pennsylvanians in the survey said their IDs listed a gender that did not reflect their gender identity.

Of the Pennsylvanians who participated in the survey, 30 percent said they’d been verbally harassed, denied service or assaulted after they provided an ID that did not reflect the gender with which they identified.

“Everyone deserves to have something in their pocket that accurately shows who they are,” said Campbell.

Rose agreed.

“It feels good to have identification the reflects who really am,” Rose said.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said, by spring 2020, motorist in the state who don’t want to disclose their gender will be able to place an “X” on their driver’s licenses instead of identifying themselves as male or female.

Off-duty Florida police officer jumps into action after SUV goes airborne, hits trees before landing

An off-duty Florida police officer jumped into action after witnessing an SUV hitting the bank of a driveway and going airborne Friday morning.

Reserve Ponce Intel patrol Officer Rich Gardner was on State Road 415 in New Smyrna Beach when he saw a white SUV drift across the road before it hit a back on a driveway and go airborne. The vehicle hit some trees before landing in a ditch.

Gardner and another man ran to the smoking SUV and helped the two people – a man and a woman – in the vehicle, according to Fox 35.

“There was a female inside that was at the closest point to the door, and she was in some pain, she said she had back pain. I just asked her to grab my arm, so I could pull her out. We got her out first and then the driver ended up jumping out on his own,” Gardner said.

The police officer stayed with the pair until a nurse took over for them. He told Fox 35 that he believes they’re both going to survive.

“It’s almost surreal to see something like that,” Garner added, “You don’t expect to see something like that in your normal course of the day.”

It’s still not clear why they drifted across the oncoming lane.

Butch Robidoux, an office specialist at the Ponce Inlet Police Department told Fox News they are aware of the incident but had no comment because the Gardner was off-duty at the time.

Woman gives birth in back of car, driver’s coaching goes viral: ‘Do the magic’

Some Uber or Lyft drivers offer water or snacks to passengers, but one New York couple who ordered a ride to the hospital got much more when their baby unexpectedly arrived in the back seat — thanks in part to the coaching they got from the front.

“Honey, you got to breathe, Mami,” Luis J. Leonardo told his passenger, who started the ride laying down in the back seat before yelling in agony as her contractions intensified.

“No, she’s literally coming out,” his passenger yelled back.

“Yeah but you have to breathe,” he said.

“Her head is in my hand,” the unnamed passenger yelled back. “She’s out!”

“Pull it out, boss! Do the magic, do the magic, spread your legs,” he told the woman, whose partner was also along for the ride. “Spread your legs Mami, spread your legs!”

After the baby girl, who came into the world screaming, was delivered in the back seat of his car, Leonardo helped coach the shocked parents into finding a blanket and cleaning her up.

“That’s it boss, you got your kid, you got your kid, shut it down,” he told the pair. “Move your legs off the seat, we’re driving, everything’s done.”

He keeps talking them through the chaotic event before adding, “God bless the baby.”

The man in the back then takes their bag off the seat to make more room for the baby, while the mother searches for a towel to clean her up.

“That’s it, boom, we Gucci,” Leonardo said.

He then tells his passengers to call the hospital and let them know the baby was born, and gives the new mother credit for her wild birth story.

“Damn, you gave birth in the car,” he told her.

He also mentioned that he’d appreciate some help paying for the cleanup.

“You better hook me up with a little extra for the car wash man,” he told his passengers.

“Man I’m broke, I didn’t think this s— was going to happen,” the male passenger said.

It was not clear which rideshare service Leonardo worked for, nor if he got a tip.

Fine waived for San Francisco couple ticketed after tires stolen off vehicle

Westlake Legal Group SF Fine waived for San Francisco couple ticketed after tires stolen off vehicle Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/san-francisco fox-news/odd-news fox-news/auto fox news fnc/auto fnc article 90735959-a42f-50bb-a368-64b9ee61efaf

A San Francisco couple had their $79 parking ticket waived after local media outlets reported their car had been stripped of its tires and propped up on milk crates in a street sweeping zone Tuesday.

Kristan Dow left her home in the city’s Richmond District to move her parked 2016 Toyota Corolla when she found the vehicle’s tires gone. She went inside to arrange for a tow and came back to find the car had been ticketed by a meter reader with San Francisco’s Department of Parking and Traffic.

“I was livid. I was completely livid when I walked outside,” Dow told the Bay Area’s FOX 2. “So it was kind of a slap in the face to an already horrible morning.”

SAN FRANCISCO PLANS TO RESERVE PARKING LOT FOR HOMELESS LIVING OUT OF VEHICLES: REPORTS

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency initially said the couple would have to contest the ticket, which would most likely be dismissed. The news outlet reported the agency later said it had the necessary details and documentation to rescind the citation.

A local Toyota dealer loaned the family four tires so a tow truck driver could bring the car to a shop without further damaging the car.

Dow’s husband, Dan, said the meter reader couldn’t have mistaken the car for a mechanic’s work-in-progress.

“This isn’t a 1965 Studebaker that’s in somebody’s front yard that they’re working on,” he said. “This is a Toyota Corolla. Nobody leaves a car like this sitting on milk crates on the street.”

The couple will have to pay a $1,000 deductible to pay for the $5,000 to replace the tires and damage to the car.

“I’m more upset about the $79 ticket than the $1,000 that I have to pay for this car,” Dan Dow said.

Police pull over Colorado driver who fixed tail light with red sports drink bottle

This driver wasn’t fooling anyone.

Police in Colorado say they pulled over a driver this week who tried to hide the fact that he had a broken tail light by placing a red sports drink in its place.

“While we appreciate the ingenuity of this tail light, this is not a permanent solution,” the Longmont Police Department said in a post on Facebook. “Working tail lights prevent accidents.”

Authorities told KMGH-TV that the driver was on his way to get the light fixed when he was pulled over in Longmont, about 30 miles north of Denver.

The station reported that all on-road vehicles in Colorado must display red or amber lights in the rear of their vehicles that are visible at least 100 feet away in the sunlight.

The driver was let go without a ticket and later was spotted at a garage getting the light replaced, KMGH-TV reported.

“If your tail lights are broken, please get them repaired,” the department said.

Uber removes driver after he used woman’s account to give himself with 5-star rating, $100 tip, report says

An Uber driver reportedly has been banned from using the app after a New Jersey woman claimed he used her account to give himself a 5-star rating and $100 tip following a recent ride.

Donna Wilson-Booker tells Fox29 that she was returning home to Willsboro from an airport when the driver – who acted polite and had helped place her luggage in the vehicle – missed what she said was an obvious turn on his GPS route.

Once she arrived at her destination, “he said ‘would you mind, can I use your app, cause of the recent incidents with passengers Uber has a problem when we go off track or off route, I just want to adjust the route’,” Wilson-Booker said.

She obliged and handed over her phone. But then hours later, when Wilson-Booker opened up the app again to leave a tip and rating for the driver, she noticed that he had already used her account to leave a 5-star review and a generous $100 tip for him, according to Fox29.

The company, in a statement to Fox29, said: “We have issued a full refund to this rider and have removed the driver’s access to the app.”

J.D. Power study says the most appealing cars are from Porsche

Porsche has been named the most APEAL-ing car brand in the U.S. for 2019.

That’s not a misspelling, it’s short for J.D. Power’s Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study, which ranks cars based on how appealing owners find them after three months and is separate from the company’s Initial Quality Survey.

Porsche was followed by BMW, the two nudging 2018 winner Genesis from the top spot. The top 10 rounding out with Audi, Volvo, Land Rover, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac and Ram, which was both the top mass-market and most-improved brand.

The industry average improved for the fifth year in a row, with Subaru and Buick trailed by Mitsubishi at the bottom of the list.

Ford and Lincoln combined for the most segment awards with five, sweeping the midsize, large and large heavy-duty pickup categories along with the full-size and luxury SUV segments.
