Local cycling club push for new life-saving road law to be passed

first_imgBallybofey based Finn Wheelers Cycling Club are appealing for TDs to vote on the amendment to the Road Traffic Bill on this Wednesday which will introduce the minimum passing distance to 1.5 metres between a vehicle and a cyclist.Fianna Fáil TD Robert Troy is spearheading the bill, which if passed will penalise motorists who pass cyclists with 1 metre between them when the vehicle is travelling at 50km/h, and 1.5 metres at over 50km/h respectively.The Finn Wheelers are fully supportive of the proposal which will help to safeguard cyclists safety on our roads at a time when cyclists deaths have increased dramatically – a 50% increase from 2016 to 2017 – while other road deaths have fallen. Between 2010 and 2013, 27 cyclists died on Irish roads. This almost doubled to 46 fatalities between 2014 and 2017.This legislation is supported by Minister Ciarán Cannon, FG Minister of State for the Diaspora and International Development, and Minister Regina Doherty, FG Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, who originally brought it forward in the form of a Private Member’s Bill. This (Private Member’s) Bill received all-party approval at its First Stage reading in the Dáil but did not proceed to a second reading.The local cycling club are now hoping that Donegal TDs will get on board with the amendment.The amendment has received cross-party support, and is supported by 50 TDs, but 29 other TD’s support is needed for a majority rule. A spokesperson for the Finn Wheelers says: “This life-saving Minimum Passing Distance Legislation (MPDL) is now operative in a total of 42 jurisdictions around the world.“It has proven to lead to the saving of lives. For the past number of years, the Stayin’ Alive at 1.5 Campaign has been campaigning for this measure to be brought into Irish road traffic law.“It is time that we in Ireland do the same and we urge you to help get this critical road safety measure over the line by supporting the proposed amendment.”Edel Gibbons on behalf of Pearse Doherty TD accepts a letter from Mr John Doherty Finn Wheelres CC asking Pearse Doherty and his Sinnn Fein colleagues for their support in the vote on the amendment of the road traffic bill on Wednesday 7th February in Dail Eireann .Included in the photo are Niall Harron Finn Wheelers Secetary and Raymond Doherty Finn Wheelers PRO .Photo by Gerard McHughLocal cycling club push for new life-saving road law to be passed was last modified: February 3rd, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:amendmentcycling clubcyclistsFinn Wheelersovertakinglast_img read more

NRI Couple Files Case Against Mumbai Bank Officials Over Money Transfer

first_imgTwo senior State Bank of India (SBI) officials have been summoned by a Mumbai court following a complaint by a Lagos-based Indian couple. The couple alleged that a sum of Rs 63 lakh was transferred from their SBI account without their knowledge.The complaint, submitted to the Bandra metropolitan magistrate’s court last year, is seeking the charge of criminal breach of trust against Shailja Nadkarni, a manager with SBI’s foreign exchange and NRI division, and Nimbraj Mohalkar, manager of the bank’s branch on Linking Road, Bandra, Mumbai Mirror reported.Chander Kalani, 64, and his wife Romi Kalani, 59, alleged that a fraudster misused their official email address to send a series of mails to the SBI, in which they requested the money to be wired to an account with British bank Barclays in London as there was a medical emergency.The SBI officials, they allege, blindly believed the e-mails and approved the transfer without any sort of verification. The complaint claims that SBI officials violated Section 3 of the Foreign Exchange Management Act that requires banks to take special permission from the Reserve Bank of India before transferring funds overseas.The Kalanis have maintained a Non-Resident External (NRE) savings account in the bank branch. The funds were transferred in 2013 and the two parties have already fought a case before the Maharashtra IT department, which ruled in favor of the Kalanis.SBI later challenged the order in the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal. A complaint was filed in the Bandra court last year and the summons against Mohalkar and Nadkarni were issued earlier in December this year. They have been asked to appear on Feb. 28, 2018.The couple moved to Lagos, Nigeria, in 1982, but continued to maintain their account with SBI and have a home in Santacruz in Mumbai.The couple visit Mumbai every few months. During one such trip in December 2013, Kalani went to the SBI branch to update his passbook and to collect an original fixed deposit receipt. He then learnt that the fixed deposit that was in his and his wife’s names, was prematurely closed after Rs 63 lakh was transferred from it to an overseas account.“It’s obvious that a fraudster gained access to my email and started communicating with SBI,” he told Mumbai Mirror. “On the fraudster’s request, the bank tried to transfer $40,000 to the London account. The person later said the funds should be transferred in sterling pound.”The spokesperson of SBI told the publication that the bank sent an A-2 form, mandatory for such transactions, to Kalani’s registered mail address, and that it received the signed form as an attachment from the mail address. The signature was also matched with that in the bank records.Kalani, however, insists that the bank should have been more careful. “The bank could have called any of my relatives in India to find out if there was a medical emergency,” he said.
