New high-speed highway opens in Texas amid controversy

As Texas' first 85 mile-per-hour highway makes its debut, not everyone is on board with the new road, which now has the highest regulated speed limit in the United States. According to critics, the 40-mile stretch of road could be a dangerous highway that leads to even faster and more rampant speeding than is already seen on other state highways. Increased highway speed limits have become common practice in Texas, which has increased speed limits to 75 or 80 miles per hour on almost 6,500 miles of highway. This has been done despite warnings from safety experts that an increase in roadway fatalities is likely to occur and despite the fact that Texas already has a high traffic fatality rate compared with other states.In regard to the 85 mile-per-hour speed limit, state officials say they aren't worried about an increase in highway deaths, indicating that data shows previous speed limit increases across the state did not produce catastrophic results.

Speed cameras continuing to plague D.C. drivers

From New York to Los Angeles, drivers in any big city are accustomed to dealing with certain realities while navigating their respective streets. One of these realities is that at some moment they will take their eyes off the speedometer and find themselves being handed a speeding ticket by a police officer.

Did a film company post fake 'no parking' signs in Astoria?

One of the realities of living in a city the size of New York is that you are bound to encounter a television or film crew shooting scenes on a public street sooner or later. Sometimes this can prove to be a real thrill and provide a much-appreciated look at life behind-the-scenes. Other times it can prove to be a real nightmare, tying up traffic and temporarily eliminating entire blocks of valuable parking spots.

Police officer believes ticket issued to popular college football coach caused his firing

Clemson University head football coach Dabo Swinney is a popular figure in his state -- so popular, in fact, that a recently fired police officer believes he was terminated for issuing him a speeding ticket. The ticket was issued early last month after the coach was clocked driving 63 miles-per-hour in a 35 mile-per-hour zone in Pickens, South Carolina, a town just 20 miles from Clemson's campus. Swinney -- who was pulled over in the parking lot of a grocery store where he was scheduled to perform his radio show -- ended up signing autographs for fans who saw him waiting outside his truck for the speeding ticket.

Look very closely the next time you get a parking ticket here in NYC

Of all the traffic violations that you could be issued here in New York City -- speeding, red light summonses, failure to yield, etc. -- none are perhaps as frustrating as parking tickets. When you see that colored envelope tucked beneath the windshield wiper of your car, your first reaction is probably to utter an otherwise unprintable sequence of words and crumple the ticket in anger.

Double trouble: Driver gets two speeding tickets at once

It's bad enough to get one speeding ticket. Getting two speeding tickets at the same time is much worse -- and not something that anyone expects to happen. It did happen recently, though, to a retired couple driving on a Georgia road. The driver informed a local news station that she was astonished when a patrol car pulled her over, as she hasn't gotten a speeding ticket in 30 years. However, by the time she pulled over to the side of the road, there were two police cars behind her.

New obstacles for blind pedestrians in NYC

There's no question that New York City can be a mixed bag for blind residents trying to get around. On the one hand, the city, with its extensive public transit system, is far more accessible than many other places. On the other hand, with its speeding cars and bumpy sidewalks, the city presents a variety of obstacles and dangers to the visually impaired.

'Speed Week' officially underway on New York's roads and highways

Crash Investigation Reform Act aims to decrease traffic accident injuries, deaths

A newly proposed bill is seeking to create a task force to reform accident investigations in New York City in the hopes of reducing the overall number of traffic-related injuries and deaths. In addition to car-on-car accidents, the bill is also designed to reduce the injury and fatality rates of pedestrians and bicyclists struck by vehicles. With support of the New York City Council and the advocacy group Transportation Alternatives, the bill calls for a comprehensive review of the traffic safety enforcement and investigation protocols currently enforced by the New York City Police Department. The bill, known the Crash Investigation Reform Act, was written under the premise that current traffic enforcement and investigation standards are simply not meeting the needs of public safety.
