    Consumer Reports isn’t convinced that self-driving cars are ready to save lives, however. It argues that legislation like the AV START Act would only have mandated safety levels present on an average human-driven car. The outlet still believes autonomous cars have “enormous potential” for safety improvements — they’re just not at that point yet. The timing of the study isn’t a coincidence. The House of Representatives is about to vote on the Moving Forward Act, a bill that would require every new car to come with crash avoidance systems and drunk driving prevention. It would toughen the standards for five-star safety ratings, too. CR is hoping the findings will not only help the bill pass, but spur car makers to include more safety features as standard and avoid tying them to optional luxury items like sunroofs and premium audio. It’s not certain just how much the technology would help in...
    PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has suspended a teen driving law which was set to take effect this week.

According to Noem's executive order, the...

    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace's father has spoken out after images were released of the suspected 'noose' in his garage that was determined by the FBI not to be a hate crime. 'We've had to jump through a lot of hurdles and put up with a lot of stuff — from when he was nine years old, up until today,' Darrell Wallace Sr told CBS This Morning on Friday. Darrell grew emotional while recounting Monday's show of solidarity at Talladega, where all the drivers joined together to push Bubba's car to the front of the line after NASCAR claimed a noose had been found in a garage. The FBI determined that the loop of rope resembling a hangman's knot had been hanging as a garage door pull in Bubba's car stall since last year, long before he was assigned the spot.  Bubba Wallace, driver of the #43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet,...

    KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) — A Hawaii man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for a drunken driving car crash that left a woman dead. Austin Kembel, 23, was sentenced Wednesday for the March 2018 accident that killed 41-year-old Trina Walker and injured another man, West Hawaii Today reported Thursday. Kembel pleaded no contest to first-degree negligent homicide in January. Prosecutors dropped charges of manslaughter and second-degree negligent injury in exchange for the plea. Kembel’s defense attorney, Michael Schlueter, asked for probation for his client but Kona Circuit Court Judge Melvin H. Fujino imposed the maximum possible sentence. Family and friends of Walker in the courtroom applauded after Fujino announced the sentence. The accident around in North Kona on Hawaii Island involved three cars, police said. Kembel's vehicle hit Walker's car while attempting to pass it on the right. The collision sent Walker's vehicle spinning into the northbound lane...
    Amazon is stepping up its presence in the self-driving vehicle space with a $1 billion-plus purchase of California company Zoox. According to The Financial Times, the deal is worth more than $1.2 billion and will be announced on Friday. Zoox was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in Foster City, California, which is situated in the San Francisco Bay Area. Its unclear whether the online retail giant would use the cars and their technology to deliver packages or if it plans to focus solely on Zooxs plan of operating a robotaxi service to compete with Waymo, another autonomous vehicle company. Zoox has 1,000 employees spread across multiple offices in the Bay Area. The Financial Times noted that in 2018, the company was valued at $3.2 billion. The purchase marks one of Amazons largest investments. It bought Whole Foods in 2017 for $13.7 billion and online shoe retailer Zappos in 2009...
    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin appeals court ruled Thursday that taking blood samples without a warrant from incapacitated drivers suspected of driving drunk is unconstitutional. The 4th District Court of Appeals ruled that a provision in state law that allows for such samples to be taken violates the Fourth Amendment that protects against unconstitutional search and seizure. That provision states that incapacitated drivers, those who are unconscious due to drugs or alcohol, are presumed not to have withdrawn consent for blood tests. The Wisconsin State Journal reported Thursday that despite the ruling, the appeals court still threw out a lower court ruling that dismissed a drunken driving homicide case against a Madison woman that has languished since 2016. The appeals court said that although there was no warrant to obtain blood samples from Dawn Prado after the December 2014 crash, a Fitchburg police officer believed in good faith that...

    A Solano County Superior Court judge has rescheduled the trial-setting date for a 38-year-old Rocklin man charged in the summer 2018 Interstate 80 deaths of a California Highway Patrol officer and a Philippines national. Sean Matthew Walker was scheduled to appear in Department 7 in Vallejo on Monday for a readiness conference and trial setting, but Judge Tim Kam delayed the setting until 8:30 a.m. Sept. 21 in the Justice Building. Based on court records it was unclear why Kam rescheduled the proceeding, but, for the past three months, many Solano County court matters are being delayed, in part, because of the ongoing pandemic and local and state public health advisories. Walker’s latest pending court date comes after a two-day preliminary hearing in August last year, when Kam ruled there was enough evidence to proceed with a jury trial. Walker is charged with two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter. The...

However, the Senator has warned about extreme elements hijacking peaceful protests throughout the same period, and as actions in the street continue, he has continued to sharply critique these elements that he sees as so far out of the mainstream that they aren’t even on the political spectrum.

    Formula One is expected to return next month, but many drivers are wary of the physical strain on their bodies. McLaren driver Lando Norris is one such person, and he believes that racing a Formula 1 car after a long period away, could be “a challenge”. So far, F1 has crammed in eight races centered around Europe within the span of 10 weekends. Additionally, F1 plans to squeeze in more races to try and fill up the calendar. Everything kicks off with the Austrian Grand Prix on 5 July, with plans for double-headers. Admittedly, Norris believes that he and his contemporaries will get up to speed within a few laps. However, he warned that the truncated schedule could strain everyone’s bodies and push it to the limit. Speaking to Autosport, the McLaren driver said, “It’s not going to be easy for all of the drivers, but I think we’re all...

When asked where he was going, the man said he was making a 42-mile-long trip to McDonald’s for a hamburger. McDonald’s restaurants in the country recently reopened drive-thru windows after coronavirus lockdowns were lifted, and the unnamed driver apparently really wanted a burger, Southwest News Service reported.

    WWE needs to be better than this. Even with its vast team of writers and the endless wrestling knowledge within the company, the best WWE could come up with was a Jeff Hardy drunk-driving angle to open “SmackDown” Friday night on Fox. While having pro wrestling blur the lines a bit is usually encouraged, working a storyline around a performer’s real-life sobriety battle and long-term demons is a tired, failed and lazy premise. The 42-year-old Hardy has a history of issues with drugs and alcohol dating back more than 15 years. Most recently, he was arrested for a DWI in October and public intoxication at a beachfront hotel last July. Hardy, who infamously wrestled Sting intoxicated for Total Nonstop Action in 2011, had another DWI arrest in March of 2018. Sobriety is a day-to-day battle that shouldn’t be taken for granted — or exploited. But WWE opened “SmackDown” with police...

He allegedly reached into the glove compartment and pulled out a gun, threatening to shoot the protesters. One woman told the Star-Banner that she heard the SUV’s engine rev and turned,...
