Simple English definitions for legal terms


Read a random definition: Miranda Rule

A quick definition of transportation:

Transportation: Transportation is when things or people are moved from one place to another by a carrier, like a car, train, or plane. It can also be a type of punishment where a criminal is sent to another place, like a penal colony, for a certain amount of time. This is different from deportation, which is when someone is forced to leave a country and go back to their home country.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Transportation refers to the movement of goods or people from one place to another using a carrier.

For example, when you take a bus, train, or plane to travel from one city to another, you are using transportation. Similarly, when a company ships its products from one warehouse to another, it uses transportation services to move the goods.

In some cases, transportation can also refer to a type of punishment in criminal law. This punishment involves sending the criminal out of the country to another place, usually a penal colony, for a specified period. This is known as transportation or deportation.

For instance, in the past, the British government used transportation as a form of punishment for criminals. They would send them to colonies in Australia or America to serve their sentence.

The examples illustrate how transportation involves the movement of people or goods from one place to another using a carrier. It is an essential aspect of modern life, enabling us to travel and trade goods across long distances.
