    Drug smugglers are being helped by the Democratic leaders in Congress who are trying to block funding for a border wall, says President Donald Trump. He is using Twitter to hit the Democrats as enablers for the criminal gangs that are smuggling deadly drugs into American cities and towns around the nation, and which are sending murderous MS-13 gang members into Americans’ neighborhoods. Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)! If Donald J.

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A proposed bill to ban express lanes in Florida died Thursday in the House Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee. Despite causing an increase in crashes and confusion, express lanes, according to the Florida Department of Transportation, help move people faster, and that if they were eliminated the state would lose $1.5 billion over 10 years. All of that money is used to improve and fix roads. Sen. Frank Artiles, R-Miami, filed SB 250 in January. It that would have allowed the express lanes to remain in operation only until tolls are collected to pay off the bonds that...

    The person who filmed the video of a man being forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight over the weekend says security is not to blame for the situation. "It's clearly the man's fault that security had to drag him off. He was resisting. I don't blame the security guards at all," Tyler Bridges, who captured the moment on his cellphone, told Fox Business on Tuesday.

    Imagine a dust storm, driven by monsoon downbursts, building near the Maricopa-Pinal county line. There are thousands of Interstate 10 motorists and hundreds of thousands of Phoenix exurb residents who would probably want to know about such a storm before the stinging, blinding wall of sand arrives. But does all of metro Phoenix need to get the alert? Likely not, but the National Weather Services Ken Waters told the dozens of attendees at the annual dust-storm workshop in Coolidge last week that thats exactly what would happen with the existing cellphone warning system in place for dust events. If Im...

    FABENS, Texas (KFOX14) The family of a construction worker killed on the job makes a plea to the public and extends forgiveness to the driver who hit him. It's a sight you see often in El Paso, construction work on the side of the road. On Monday, a crash on Interstate 10 near Van Horn killed two workers and injured two others. Juan Madrid, 21, from Fabens and Christopher Guerra, 38, from Clint, were killed. Madrid's family said he grew up in Fabens, and worked hard to help them and his mother, who lives in Mexico. "He had a...

    Years of Democratic leadership abetted by a sycophantic media have done enormous damage to New Orleans When you read about the worst cities in the United States youll find that they all share a common characteristic: each has been under Democratic leadership for decades. Most of you have read horror stories about some of these cities; Detroit, Cleveland, Birmingham, St. Louis, and New Orleans. In many ways, the deterioration of these cities is a microcosm of whats gone wrong with our nation. As the 1970s drew to a close, I decided to move to New Orleans. Media at that time...

    At the Ranch in Arizona, I keep water trickling for a water hole. It is the only reliable water for about three miles in any direction. I have a game camera there, and sometimes obtain interesting photographs, like the bobcat and coyote interaction above from a couple of months ago. The water hole is about 15 yards from the backstop of the pistol range. Some of the water pipe was exposed over the last few years. My bother and I were at the range, shooting 170 grain cast lead .40 caliber projectiles at a half silhouette steel target. After...

    BROOKSVILLE (FOX 13) - Some neighbors in Hernando County have had it with the noise. They say all-night construction on I-75 is keeping them awake, even shaking their homes. It's all related to a 6.5-mile, $95 million FDOT project that started last summer. Crews are currently widening Interstate 75 from four to six lanes, starting south of State Road 50 and finishing at the Hernando/Sumter County line. Lauretta Clemons, who lives on Shadywood Lane in Brooksville, remembers her backyard 30 years ago. "Beautiful," Clemons said. "Trees, ferns, flowers, birds and wild animals." Now, the trees are gone and she and...

    The Chicago Daily Herald ^ | January 23, 2017 | Bob Susnjara
    Bill Bertram frequently felt uneasy as cars whizzed past while he waited in traffic to reach the Tri-State Tollway's Grand Avenue exit ramp in Gurnee in the months after a $19.4 million reconstruction project was completed in 2015. Thoughts of being a sitting duck for a rear-end crash crossed his mind. Still, the 59-year-old Round Lake Beach resident said, driving north on the tollway to the westbound exit ramp was the most efficient option to head home from his Evanston job. On Nov. 16, at about 5:15 p.m., the rear-end crash he worried about happened. Bertram was stuck in a...

    The fatal lunchtime accident that shut down Interstate 10 for hours on Tuesday caught Vidor resident Theresa Manley's attention right away. "My 17-year-old totaled her car in that spot last summer," said Manley, 45, as she filled up her car at the Flying J in Orange on Wednesday. "That was a scary phone call." Manley said her daughter, who was driving with Manley's 12-year-old son, rear-ended a pick-up truck after it rear-ended the car in front of it. Her daughter's small Pontiac went under the large truck and was destroyed, she said, but her children were unharmed. The accident happened...
  • Toll Lanes Could Get Driverless Trucks On Highways Faster

    Forbes ^ | October 18, 2016 | Jason Kuehn and Bill Rennicke
    Prematurely accelerating the implementation of fully autonomous trucking (no driver in the cab) seems like an idea that could be fraught with risk. While driverless long-haul trucks have the potential to increase economic productivity by enabling more cost-effective transport of goods, the technology is not yet ready for prime time. There is growing pressure, however, to make it a reality sooner rather than later particularly as long-distance trucking faces a worsening driver shortage. At the same time, highway infrastructure in many parts of the country is clearly inadequate even for todays traffic, let alone a mixed bag of driven...

    CASA GRANDE Republican Congressional District 1 candidate Paul Babeu says he plans to make improvements to Interstate 10 a greater priority for the federal government. Babeu, who is Pinal County sheriff, assembled a number of Republican state lawmakers on Monday to discuss his intentions as a congressman to prioritize widening a portion of I-10 that runs between Phoenix and Casa Grande. His plan is to work on expanding this section from two lanes to three in each direction. Doing so, Babeu said, improves safety and economic development. This is directly linked to a prosperous future for western Pinal County...

    The worlds leading smartphone makers just cant stop copying each other. While the company has certainly improved its image over the past few years, Samsung is likely most famous for being an Apple copycat. After all, the company was sued repeatedly by Apple for stealing its technology and designs. And as we all learned, things got so crazy at one point that Samsung even created a 132-page internal document to help its engineers copy the iPhone pixel by pixel. Of course, Apple is hardly innocent in all this. The iPhone maker has aped plenty of features from Android in recent...

    Some time back, I published an opinion piece stating that it might benefit Trump to be pro-water-resources in the western states. But I have found a much better wedge issue for him to exploit, and I know he is part way there already. Fix the damn roads and get the worst drivers off them. I just came back from a six-day driving trip that included the states of WA, OR, ID, NV, and UT in a loop starting and ending in my home in BC, Canada. Our roads are not always that great either, and all my comments about drivers...
