New Tesla Model X is too heavy to legally drive over the Brooklyn Bridge

It's not alone; perhaps it's time to go after all the load limit scofflaws.

Google’s driver-less cars are already street-legal in three states, California, Florida, and Nevada, and some day similar devices may not just be possible but mandatory. Eventually (though not yet) automated vehicles will be able to drive better, and more safely than you can; no drinking, no distraction, better reflexes, and better awareness (via networking) of other vehicles

The decision to settle a personal injury lawsuit or take it to trial can be a tough and emotional one. As lawyers, we are there to aid in the decision making but ultimately the client makes the call. When doing so, a client has to consider the risk of an unfavorable decision at trial. He or she must consider whether the current offer, if anything at all, should be accepted and forgo months if not years of litigation. How will the time it takes to go to trial impact the client and his family?

But it's a nightmare if you care about the elephants that roam this earth. Tell Congress to sweep away the tangled web of laws & replace it with a domestic moratorium on ivory sales.
