Ed Dahlberg of Clifton turned himself in to Fairfax County Police at around 9 p.m. on Wednesday, and was served with a misdemeanor assault charge, according to Fairfax County Police.
Dahlberg is charged with assaulting a taxi driver and fleeing the scene on foot in the early morning of Friday, April 26.
The 39-year-old taxi driver, Mohamed Salim, is Muslim, and claims that Dahlberg compared him to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects and repeatedly punched him, resulting in a fractured jaw, a head injury and hearing loss.
Salim, a US Army veteran, picked up Dahlberg at the Country Club of Fairfax2 on the early morning of Friday, April 26. The cab driver took 11 minutes of video of Dahlberg drunkenly arguing over Muslim extremism3 and provided the video to the Washington Post.
If you re a expletive Muslim flying jets into the World Trade Center, then expletive you, I will slice your expletive throat right now, Dahlberg said.
Dahlberg then knocked the phone away as Salim tried to call the police. Dahlberg then fled the scene on foot.
That may be the end of the video, but not the story.
“After the recording Dahlberg got out of the car, and (Salim) said, ‘I’m going to call 911,’ and he (Dahlberg) gets back into the car, called the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings his cousins and punched him a couple more times before running into the woods,” said Salim’s attorney Gadeir Abbas of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Salim refused treatment at the scene, and drove himself to INOVA Fair Oaks Emergency Department.
The hospital report shows that Salim had a fractured jaw and a head injury. No specifics were available on the extent of the head injury. Salim, who also complained of pain in his right ear, was then prescribed with pain killers, which warn that he not drive or operate heavy machinery.
Abbas is working for the Commonwealth’s Attorney to get Dahlberg’s potential sentencing over the alleged assault increased by classifying it as a hate crime.
“At this point what Mohamed is focused on is seeking justice in this case through the criminal justice process, and here a local prosecutor can send a message that active acts of violence against muslims are out of place in Virginia,” said Abbas, adding that Salim is weighing options on whether to file a civil suit against Dahlberg.

Traffic, road damage and air pollution top the list of troubles that Los Alamitos officials worry a proposed 33-acre Cypress truck complex could bring to the city
Recently the Los Alamitos City Council voted 5-0 to oppose the development1. The 33-acre warehousing and light manufacturing site that industrial developer Prologis2 proposed for the corner of Enterprise and Katella will have significant environmental and human health impacts on the surrounding community, according to a letter from Los Alamitos to the Cypress.
And city officials want Cypress to address those issues in a draft report Cypress is preparing on project’s potential effects.
To read the letter in full, click the pdf under the picture on the right.
According to the letter, officials are concerned that the 134 truck bays could generate up to 1,131 trips in the morning hours and 1,080 in peak hours which would shorten the pavement life of local streets and increase traffic times.
City staffers were also concerned about the project s effect on air quality, especially because the site would be so close to Laurel Park (.62 miles away), the Los Alamitos Medical Center (.75 miles away) and the Alamitos West Care Center (.62 miles away). The last day to submit comments on the upcoming draft report is Wednesday.
At a recent meeting aimed at collecting comment on the project3 Garden Grove, Los Alamitos and Cypress residents said the project would increase traffic, damage streets and increase health risks, especially for children.
Because of the impact on local residents and because of the residents objections, Los Alamitos Mayor Warren Kusumoto said there s no amount of money the developer could pay the city to make him OK with the project.
We don t want their money, Kusumoto said.
The Los Al letter lists other concerns. The project would force traffic onto Midway and Enterprise and interfere with the commute for students and parents who use Katella to get to school, according to the letter.
Of the about 21 people who spoke on the issue at a Monday Cypress City Council meeting, most were against it, said Doug Hawkins, Cypress planning manager. He said most were also concerned with three main issues: noise, traffic and pollution.
Residents from Los Al and Cypress packed the council chamber occasionally yelling during the meeting, said those who attended the meeting. Cypress Mayor Prakash Narain, M.D., could not be reached for comment.
According to Hawkins, Assemblyman Travis Allen s district director Emanuel Patrascu spoke in support of the project at the meeting. However, Patrascu later clarified that the assemblyman did not approve or support the project but supported the goal of economic development.
He s supporting the process involved, Patrascu said. From what I ve seen of it, it s not what I would consider a truck stop.
Patrascu added that “a truck stop is usually a place where trucks stop, heavy amount of trucks coming through and stopping over night. Patrascu said he doesn t believe this project is a truck stop.
The Assemblyman wants to see what the final project looks like before deciding whether he’s in favor or against, Patrascu said.
The last day to submit comments by email, phone, fax or hand delivery before city staff begin drafting the EIR is April 10.
Emails can be sent email@example.com, the phone number is 714 229-6720 and the fax number is 714-229-0154. For mail, address letters to the City of Cypress, Community Development Department, 5175 Orange Avenue Cypress, California, Attention Mr. Douglas Hawkins AICP, Planning Manager.

Two Mexican trucking companies have failed safety audits that are required for admission in the pilot program that allows some Mexico-based carriers into the interior of the United States, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said.
Transportes Mor SA de CV and Adriana de Leon Amaro failed their audits after FMCSA could not verify that the carriers had drug and alcohol testing programs that comply with U.S. regulations, the agency said in a Federal Register notice published Wednesday.
After the carriers failed that part of the audit, investigators did not complete other phases of the process to verify whether the Mexican companies maintained hours-of-service compliance, had proper insurance, or could show vehicle inspections or driver qualifications. Investigators also did not inspect any of the carriers vehicles, FMCSA said.
Winter is still very much a part of work particularly in our cross-country travel in Canada and the United States. Flash freezing, ice rain, sudden lake effect snow squalls and Arctic air masses are reminding us of the fact we cannot control the weather. And although we are assured of spring in the next few weeks let s remember the chain-up season can extend until April 30th in some parts of our travel area! So along with weather will appear road maintenance equipment of all types. Let s remember how to share the road with them.
Every year it seems there are concerns brought to our attention by winter highway maintenance crews particularly in the northern Ontario, two lane Trans-Canada Highway region. The concerns are directed toward the truck traffic interaction with the winter maintenance equipment sharing the public highways. It seems a serious lack of consideration for the safety of the snow plow operators and the rest of the motoring public is evident by the behavior displayed by some commercial vehicle operators.
The industry believes in a good working relationship with the enforcement community. After all, we share similar interests in public safety. I am a member of the Highway Safety and Education Committee established in the Thunder Bay district which is made up of industry stakeholders in public safety. Concerned citizens such as enforcement personnel, Ministry of Transportation, Insurance representatives and transportation community members meet to discuss educational tactics for improving safe travel. As such; we are privileged from time to time to receive courtesy calls from members and enforcement regarding commercial driving safety related matters as well as positive reinforcement for our professional drivers. This courtesy affords the opportunity to deal appropriately with safety concerns in a timely fashion.
On one such occasion this winter, the Ontario Provincial Police courtesy caller relayed concerns regarding SEVERAL trucks needlessly passing and crowding snow plow efforts whereby causing an off duty officer and his family undue anxiety during their travels on highway # 17. On his trip from northern Ontario to Ottawa, the off duty officer noted transport trucks behaving dangerously when traveling at the same time as the snow removal equipment. In their haste to get ahead of the snow plows some trucks were taking chances with limited visibility and on-coming traffic! More than once the off duty officer moved to the shoulder and prepared to stop or simply stopped because he feared the worst! Several trucking companies traveling the shared highway throughout the course of that day were guilty of pushing the limits! The officer recorded truck numbers, company names, times and locations (various) before passing the information to his office. His concern was for the general public and the highway maintenance equipment personnel trying to perform their jobs safely. OPP headquarters then contacted each company to deal with their part in this unsafe matter.
The puzzling aspect to this type of (dangerous) behaviour is; considering the highway maintenance personnel are working to better the road conditions as quickly as possible why would any road user want to cause disruption to that effort? Let s not forget the high risk associated with passing highway snow removal equipment during poor weather conditions! It doesn t take much for any vehicle to lose control but large commercial units crowding passenger cars and snow plows while jockeying for a pass position is a very dangerous activity! Such action is certain to raise the odds in favour of collision or loss of vehicle control!
Think about how you, the professional vehicle operator, would feel about being followed too closely with the lights blinding you in the mirrors. Imagine the sheer anxiety of being pushed along by another heavy highway vehicle and how disconcerting it is when being passed in a poor visibility situation. We hear this exact complaint of other road users from fleet drivers often enough. Let s think about the plow operator enduring the same conditions. I am sure he or she has some tense moments when oncoming traffic appears while other vehicles are attempting to pass their snow plow!
Certainly the plow operators have their plates full concentrating on moving the snow safely out of the travel lanes while keeping the guardrails intact (never mind the grief you give them if they take out your mailbox)! Let s give them consideration. If these folks don t clear the snow or spread the salt and sand on our highways, vehicular travel would be next to impossible in the winter months. Just how much difference in your ETA do you think it would make if you follow the snow plows until they have completed their contracted portion of the clearing instead of taking a chance and passing them? I can guarantee there is far less time lost in following the highway maintenance equipment along at a safe speed and distance than there would be required to pull upright or untangle your unit if it lands in the ditch!
Every professional transport operator must live up to the responsibility of maintaining a safe operating environment for all road users, first and foremost. Transport trucks can be very intimidating to passenger vehicles, particularly in poor weather conditions. Swirling snow from trucks passing and slush being hurled on windshields can make for some anxious moments of zero visibility for passenger vehicles! In a collision with an oncoming truck, passenger vehicles do not stand a chance!
So the next time you join that lineup behind the essential snow plow remember, the professional in charge of that winter maintenance equipment with the flashing blue light is only trying to make the highway passable for all users. It becomes a dangerous venture for all concerned if you decide to push your way into the oncoming lane just so you can hurry through the lousy conditions ahead of everyone. You can move along a LOT safer with the plow in front of you and certainly much safer once it has cleared the roadway!
As representatives of the transportation industry it is important for us to appreciate the diligence of the winter maintenance crews, treat them with respect and be thankful for their efforts! Without them clearing the roadway, our job of providing safe and efficient transportation services would be next to impossible.

It is always recommended that you insure your shipment(s), but the reality is that you need to consider the value of the goods, the cost of insurance, the risk involved, and any excess charges or restrictions that might apply.
If you are a business, and you are doing multiple transactions, then you should discuss this with your insurance broker who provides your other business insurance and check if your import or export transactions are included as well.
Failing that, you can get an individual policy for each shipment; but this will always work out more expensive than if your shipments are just part of your annual business insurance, or you have taken out an annual policy to cover your shipping.
For import shipments, you are responsible for insuring your shipments if they are ex works (EXW), FOB or CNF. If the shipment is CIF, then you should ask for your supplier to send you a copy of the insurance policy that covers each shipment.
For export consignments, theoretically the reverse is true. But, just consider your exposure.
A friend of mine is exporting containers on an FOB basis; so theoretically his customer is arranging for insurance on the goods. But once, one of his containers arrived at the destination, and the consignee rejected the goods (for whatever reason); so, the exporter was stuck with a container load of product (that he had already paid for) in another country, for which he then had to try to find another buyer (at a hugely discounted price) or have the cargo destroyed at his expense. So, even though the importer was technically responsible for insuring the goods, the end result is that by him not doing so, it cost him a small fortune. All of which could easily have been avoided had he insured the goods in the first place. Now, regardless of the terms of sale, this exporter insures all of his shipments.
Insurance of personal effects is something that comes up regularly. If you pack the cartons or container yourself, then you will only be able to insure your goods for total loss. Breakage or damage or theft will never be included in this case. International removalist companies may offer this as an option if you were to utilise their services on a door to door basis, but you should check.

Florida is the only state in the United States that makes a car owner, under common law, responsible for damages caused to another due to letting someone driver the owner s car and causing an accident. This law is called the dangerous instrumentality doctrine. The injured person can get the following damages from the owner and driver of the car that caused the accident:
- Past lost income (Learn 4 Tips for Getting Paid for Missing Work After an Accident1)
- Future lost income reduced to present value
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Replacement value of lost personal property (e.g. damage to your car, etc.)
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life.
In order to get damages #4-9 above, you would generally need to prove that you sustained a permanent injury. There are exceptions to this such as if you involved in a taxi accident2, bus accident3, motorcycle accident4, and other situations.
In order to have case against a car owner if he or she let someone driver his or her car, 3 things have to happen:
- The owner voluntarily lets someone use his or her car.
- The driver negligently (carelessly) operates it.
- You suffer damage (car damage, physical injury, etc.).
This law applies to many more types of vehicles than just a car. It also applies to trucks, buses, tow trucks, golf carts, cranes and construction lifts. Now, you can have the best case in the world but in order to get money of your injuries someone has to be able to pay it. Most claims are generally paid by an insurance company. You may want to know how to discover insurance that may help pay5 for your accident in Florida.6 If the owner and driver of the car that caused your accident is uninsured or does not have enough bodily injury liability insurance, you may need to find out whether the driver was working or volunteering at the time of the accident. If you still cannot find any or enough bodily injury insurance, you can make a claim with your uninsured motorist insurance insurance7 company.
Ok..let s go back to the main point of this article, which is determining whether you have a claim against someone who owns a car and lends there car out.
Assume that Ben gives the keys to his car to Bob. Bob runs a red light and hits Mike. Mike s car is damaged and he is injured (has a broken wrist). Mike has a case against both Ben and Bob. The same result would apply if Bob was driving any of the vehicles listed above (a bus, truck, etc.)
You should always look at the Florida crash report as you may notice that the owner of the car that hit you is different from the driver. You may be dealing with more than one insurance company that can pay your claim.
I want to show you some more categories and examples.
This above mentioned law called will not apply if an owner of a vehicle lends his car to a bailee (a driver), and the driver is injured.
Ben gives the keys to his car to Bob. Bob runs a red light and hits another driver. Bob is injured. Bob cannot make a claim against Ben under this law the dangerous instrumentality doctrine. The same would apply if Ben gave Bob any of the vehicles listed above (a bus, truck, etc.). However, if Bob can show that Ben did something negligent (careless), such as there was not enough tread on the tires and Bob could not stop in time to avoid the crash, then Bob may have a claim against Ben for his injuries.
The owner of a car is not liable for injuries to a sub-bailee. A sub-bailee is a person who is given permission to drive the vehicle by the bailee.
Ben gives the keys to his car to Bob. Bob then lets Sandra driver the car. Sandra is driving carelessly and hits another car. Ben is not liable for Sandra s injuries just because Ben is the owner of the car. However, if Sandra can show that Ben did something negligent (careless), such as there was not enough tread on the tires and Sandra could not stop in time to avoid the crash because of this, then Sandra may have a claim against Ben for his injuries.
Bailee is injured while passenger of owner s vehicle and sub-bailee is driving at the time of the accident
If a bailee lends the owner s car to someone, and the bailee is a passenger of the car at the time of the accident, then the owner is not liable for injuries to the bailee.
Ben gives the keys to his car to Bob. Bob then lets Sandra driver the car and Bob is a passenger in the car. Sandra is driving carelessly and hits another car. Bob is injured. Ben is not liable Bob s injuries just because Ben is the owner of the car. However, if Bob can show that Ben did something negligent (careless), such as there was not enough tread on the tires and Sandra could not stop in time to avoid the crash, then Bob may have a claim against Ben for his injuries.
What situations do you know of where a car owner was held liable for lending his or her car to someone who caused an accident?
