I wonder if delta has you thinking differently at all you know. I have to say the answer to that is yes What's happened with me. Is that i think that and i think this really is a very this is not a you know a very rational thing in a way but you know it's i have become increasingly angry simply because of the fact that i believe that you know the delta verion is what it is but the fact of the matter is you know. I was just looking at some numbers from mississippi. You know ninety. Seven percent of the people who are in the hospital in mississippi are not backs in it in the fact that matters the delta variant would have an impact no matter what but but if everyone were vaccinated. This impacting what we are going through. Right now would be far less severe. And i'm just playing angry because this is so avoidable. We just shouldn't have to go through this. Any more selfishly.

"Many decades just realized listening to kimberly Following this stuff I have never seen the political climate here move so far left so quickly as what we're seeing right now and now that could either obviously be very harmful for him as more of a centrist centrist or It could be that you know the democrats You know sort of nominated whoever's the most liberal in that opens up a big lane for him very good for me. I'd say it's too early to really fit for me anyway to to know how i think that's going to play out listeners. Can a republican candidate still win the governorship in massachusetts one. Eight hundred four two three eight two five five. That's one eight hundred four to three talk. I wanna stay on the question of charlie baker for a minute murray francis and i'm gonna play more sound. I got a kick out of this yesterday mostly for the hesitation at first but then also for the answers when i asked both kimberly at can store of the boston globe and anthony brooks wbrc senior political reporter whether each of them thinks baker is going to run for a third term. I'll go out on a limb. I think he's going to run. But i don't say that with any kind of insider knowledge. I just have a gut feeling that. I can't imagine what else charlie baker would do. Frankly i would that. I mean in the trump a fide gop world. There aren't a lot of places for the charlie baker's to go if they wanna stay in politics and it seems that the best job he could possibly run for. Is the one that he already has some predictions there. Mary francis have the point that that charlie chippy. Oh just made which is. This is a state. Gop that doesn't like their own governor. Who is one of the most popular governors in the country but who clearly do not feel. It seems that he stands for them anymore. So you i apologize mostly question but can he run as a republican again in the commonwealth. There's a lot to respond to hear number one. Charlie baker could get a job in the private sector. So i mean..

"Jay talking talk. WBZ? Jay talking relied midnight five dean, the boss the Massachusetts school of law. I remember when you were the associate dean, I was for a number years. And now I've been the dean this is my fourth year. So it's been a been an exciting spent a lot of fun seems like it's fun for you. It is I lo- I'm very very fortunate. I recognize that I love what I do. And and I know I'm lucky to be able to say that. Now, we have Larry and Holbrook. Larry hello. Hello. How are you today rate? Mike. Hi, mike. Good. Thank you. Michael you're talking about Crosswalks, and such what about the suburbs? With is not a lot of Crosswalks on the back roads. Just on a lot of walk the sidewalks and such. And peop- people. You know, they got across the street. The regular postman has to cross to make his deliveries and such. So what about isn't there a law that for drivers that they have to be more tentative to pedestrians in the roadways yield to a pedestrian? Yeah. There is. I mean, you're absolutely right. There are there's actually another rule that I I want to mention that. I came across when Bradley had sent me this. And I started to look at it a little bit. But, but you're right as a general matter pedestrians have the right away over the motor vehicle, but especially they have the right of way over the motor vehicle when they're in the crosswalk, but what I found in looking at. I think it was both the driver's manual and some research, and I didn't know such a thing existed is that they're they have what they call marked and unmarked Crosswalks. So that the end of a street where you reach the corner, even if there's no crosswalk there technically that can be considered an unmarked Crosswalks. So that when one moves from one corner to the other corner of the other side of the street, the pedestrian would have the right away. Because in essence, it's it's what's considered an unmarked crosswalk. I didn't I either forgot from the it's been so long since I took my driver's license or didn't know such a thing existed. But so there are rules within the driver's manual in within the state laws that also. Give the pedestrian the right to cross the street without being hit by vehicle, even when they're not in a crosswalk. So you're absolutely right. So even let's say you're coming to a dead end road. Let's just say a someone's crossing the street at the dead end road is is is that considered. You know, let's say you come into a call to sack such and someone cross the street, and you hit them is that an unmarked crosswalk as well. No, no. But remember your the driver of the vehicle you still have an obligation to drive your car safely. So that you're not negligent and to the point that to the extent that you're either speeding or careless not watching the road sufficiently. You still could be negligent in the way, which you're operating to the point where you have hit that pedestrian. So the the fact is these rules about Crosswalks like make it easier for the pedestrian to establish liability. But just because they're not in a crosswalk. You still have an obligation to operate safely, which generally will mean you have the right to vote. You have an obligation. Not a right now Gatien to avoid pedestrians in the roadway. If on the other hand, though, the pedestrian darts in front of the vehicle a dozen exercise proper care, then you have a different argument. But for the most part when the driver hits a pedestrian they're likely going to be found at fault, unless it's one of these where the pedestrian has sorta suddenly tried to cross the road without looking at the traffic that's in the roadway. And then in essence, the driver couldn't have avoided the collision, and therefore may not have been careless, but beyond that if you if you hit a pedestrian, and you have been found not to be exercising proper care. Then the likelihood is you're going to be responsible for the injuries you caused that pedestrian regardless of where it happens. Because I I know I saw on the news just not too long ago about these carriers that. The filling up there dashboard with packages that they have to deliver. And I read that article as well. And that was that was an interesting article that that to some extent that their car could be have so much stuff in it that they would have difficulty being able to see in essence one hundred eighty degrees around them. So that that could create a dangerous situation. Now, that's not a law though to not have that stuff in there right now. Now, you should know there is not to my knowledge. Is there a law that says you have to have, you know, an unobstructed vision abuse around you for one hundred and eighty degrees. It would be it would be good logger if it was, but, but you know, a lot of times it's not just the people delivering packages, but we have things in our vehicle that might obstruct dire side view of things. And I actually when I was first a lawyer. I had a case like that where we would. I was defending the case usually. The plaintiffs lawyer. But what happened was a child ran into the side of the vehicle that my client was driving. She really could have done nothing to avoid the collision other than not be on that roadway. She was still nonetheless sued even though the child rain into the right rear tire of vehicle. And and you're right is that she her view wasn't obstructed. She just couldn't have done anything differently. But if you've got packages or other things in the vehicle that would obstruct your view of the sides of the road. It does create a dangerous situation under those circumstances. Now, I have one more question. You know, how they passed the law about cleaning your windshield. Oh, yeah. That law would not also it's not specific about packages, and such it just means that you have to have your windshield cleaned. So because it's specific about ISIS. Snow nothing else. No, other like what we were talking about the packages that law wouldn't pertain to such an argument. It's no. But it's it's a it's a great point because it's an essence related if if you're negligent because you don't clear the ice and snow from your vehicle, and you hit someone why don't we have a similar rule that says if you have other than snow and ice have an inability to see completely sides of the road with respect to your vehicle. Why isn't that also violating the, you know at some type of safe driving law now right now, listen, it still may be negligent. It just there is. Isn't necessarily a statute that specifically forbids it? But I would think and I, and I think your point is well taken is to the extent you're in an accident under those circumstances where your car, and you know, we've all seen those in the parking lots to where someone, you know, looks like a hoarder that their car is so full of crap that the only thing clear is the is the ability to get to the steering wheel. That may well pose a danger to others on the road. And I wouldn't be surprised if there may be some traffic law that the police would be able to site. You know, not operating your vehicle with a safe view or safe safe sufficiently safely that they may be a statute they could charge you with. I just don't I'm not aware of which one. It would be is this just curiosity or do you have a situation situation? What happened? I can't discuss right. This moment. Who? It's too. It's coming up soon. Well, it's it sounds like, you know, a question a legitimate question about whether the person was negligent, and, you know, lawyers say negligent, and when we talked to juries, we we refer to it as careless because that's what negligence is, and I don't think it's a big stretch to say that if your car is so full of packages, or whatever that that is a careless way to operate your vehicle, especially then if someone is injured what what I would include that would include like S's and cell phone, suction cups and all that kind of stuff yet. We've had actually we do a lot of trial advocacy, programs where we compete against other law schools when I had previously taught similar courses with central Catholic high school up in Lawrence, and they have done. The students have done, you know, the GPS distracted driving the cell phone. Distracted driving the information on the windshield that takes your eye off the road. So that you're looking at that instead of watching safely on the road, all of those issues all of those types of cases, raise issues of distracted driving, which ultimately raise issues of where you negligent because you weren't operating your car safely. So you're absolutely right with respect to all of those. And to me, the other point that you're packages issue raised is okay. So the driver is sort of an independent contractor does Amazon. And that's who this. These folks were driving. Do they bear some responsibility? When they give the drivers limited time to deliver a number of packages knowing that they're going to be rushing knowing that the car is likely at some point starting out full of packages does Amazon best response. Ability for the negligence of those folks that are driving is as independent contractors, and they very well may. Larry, right. Thank you. Appreciate it. Thanks. Larry good. You to you know, I am of the mind. And especially after speaking with Charlie chippy, oh do know. Charlie. No. I don't is friends with Mary Dolan, and he's sort of transportation. Thank thank you. I know Mario L K that this is all going to go in in the relatively near future. Because these south the automatic car is coming barreling down the road. And there will be no junk driving distracted driving driving down the wrong way. All will go away. So that'll make things easier for everyone. See I'm still I'm still old. So I'm stuck in the even though I grew up watching the cartoon the Jetsons. It seems hard to believe that in my lifetime. Our roads will be full of driverless vehicles. I think it's it's it's a fascinating concept, but the the practical limitations give me give me pause. I'm gonna guess. And I'm not an expert thirty years. So I don't. Sure, I'm going to be around thirty. I said relatively soon I'll say thirty years, that's my guess. But I just feel it'll be a simpler world when that happens and a lot of people balked at chafe giving up the car, but it's fun to drive anymore. Anyway, right driving here driving, his very, very difficult. Now when I have to come in to Boston from north of Boston. And when I when I first went north of Boston, the roads were very easy to get to Boston now, and I'm only thirty miles or so no at the Boston. I'm leaving an hour and a half to get in at rush hour, and at least as much on the way home, and frankly when you make it in an hour and a half, you think you've done. Well, even though you're basically, traveling just around thirty miles. It's traffic has gotten terrible. The does the the loss of the overhead artery hasn't hasn't hasn't changed as in significantly advanced the. Time to get in and out of Boston. Unfortunately, next. Let's talk about Michael Flynn after this. Do you feel that he actually committed treason treasonous acts, folks? That'll be after this on WBZ. What do you say?
