I think you are misreading the picture. There is a grate running across the road itself that cars can cross without problems but hoofed animals (e.g. sheep) can not. Next to the road there is a gate that can be opened when driving herds. But this gate is never used to close off the road. Generally, in Iceland, a closed gate means no entry. Unless there is ...

When talking to a customs or immigration officer, the most important thing to do is tell the truth. This includes "I don't know" if that is the answer you have. The second most important thing to do is to show that you have planned and prepared, so that you trot out "I don't know" as little as possible. The questions start like this: who are you? what is ...

I've crossed the border hundreds of times (if not thousands), so they can basically ask you anything. There's no reason to be nervous about the questions, unless you have something to hide. If that's the case, then do not attempt to enter the US lying otherwise you will be in a world of trouble. I'm a US Citizen (naturalized) so my English is a bit ...

Please assume that you are. I can only give you the answer for example Dutch law, but a lot of countries have similar regulations (apart from it being your ethical duty).

There are at least four aspects to this question: Legal obligation Legitimation Liability Moral Obligation Legal obligation is a common misconception. While generally there exists an obligation not only for medical professionals but for every person to help in most (all?) countries in the world, this obligation does not work the way laymen think.

In regards to right of ...
