    Formula One appears to be entering a new era, but this is not about who is taking the baton from Lewis Hamilton - it may be much greater than that. The 2022 campaign already looks markedly different from any other we have seen in recent times, with new looking and closer running cars having improved racing, and Hamilton not being in title contention for the first time in nearly a decade. Yet there appears to be a shift taking place in the sport, one that has not been as significant since the foundation of the championship in 1950. In essence, it's 'Formula One goes to America' and in the process it appears to slowly be moving out of its European home where much of the race calendar has been based throughout its entire existence. The calendar grows year by year and the European influence appears to be fading. It's a red herring to claim this is a modern feature of the F1 season though. While 20 years ago you could expect two-thirds of a season to be dominated by European...

    From the logging roads of the Pacific Northwest to the farm country of the Great Plains and beyond, it’s not uncommon for people in rural parts of the U.S. to learn to drive when they’re young, sometimes even before they reach their teens. But the news that a 13-year-old was behind the wheel of a pickup truck that blew a tire and struck a van on a dark, two-lane road in West Texas on Tuesday night, killing nine people — including six members of a New Mexico college’s golf teams and their coach — put a renewed focus on the practice. At a news conference in Odessa, Texas, on Thursday, National Transportation Safety Board Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg said the dangers of underage driving put it on the agency’s “most-wanted list.” Along with drunk and distracted driving, Landsberg said “youthful driving” and excessive speed on rural roads are among the problems that make highway driving the most dangerous form of transit in the United States. “Every two days we are killing the equivalent of a Boeing 737 crashing,”...

    by J.D. Miles | CBS 11 BEDFORD, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – It’s become the most expensive road to drive on in North Texas. It’s costing as much as $20 to access the TEXpress lanes on 121 between Fort Worth and DFW Airport. The toll rates through the Mid Cities are high enough that some drivers tell us they would rather sit in traffic. It’s right there in big bright lights on a digital sign overlooking vehicles that pass underneath. Still, Darrell Key couldn’t believe his eyes when he noticed it while traveling with his wife today from Grand Prairie to the Mid Cities. “I said it’s probably a glitch when we came across another one we said there it is again,” said Grand Prairie resident Darrell Key. He’s referring to the $20 toll rate for single occupant vehicles to use the TEXpress lanes through Hurst, Euless, Bedford during rush hours. The lanes were created seven years ago to offer a faster way to avoid heavy traffic on 121 between Irving and Fort Worth. But some drivers are going another route due...
    SHREVEPORT, La. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Changes in Texas law — in particular the one banning abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy — is having an impact on the mental and physical health of many women in the Lone Star State. A 33-year-old woman drove alone four hours through the night to get to the Louisiana abortion clinic for a consultation. She initially planned to sleep in her car, but an advocacy group helped arrange a hotel room.

    A Texas man was arrested Friday, accused of animal cruelty just days after he allegedly abandoned a husky along a roadside near El Paso, authorities said.  Luis Antonio Campos, 68, was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility on $5,000 bond, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office said, adding that another arrest was expected as the investigation continued.  The alleged crime was captured on video that quickly went viral after being shared on social media.  The clip appears to show someone unleashing the dog along the roadside while a driver waits in a nearby Jeep. The pair then drive away as the dog desperately chases the SUV, unable to catch up.  "I don't know how those people could get in that vehicle, see that dog in the mirror running behind them and then just drive off," Ronald Comeau, who rescues pets, told KFOX 14 of El Paso. "I don’t know how you could do that as a human being." Comeau said he has been rescuing pets in El Paso for six years. DOG TRAPPED INSIDE STOLEN TRUCK TAKEN ON...

    Republicans in the Texas Senate advanced a sweeping voting restrictions bill early Thursday seeking to reverse policies adopted by localities within the state that made it easier for people to vote. Senate Bill 7 would slash extended early voting hours, make it illegal for local officials to send absentee ballot applications to qualified individuals without them first requesting one and completely end drive-thru voting, the method used by approximately 127,000 Texans during the 2020 election. The bill passed 18-13. The bill, which advanced after a seven-hour session, would also allow partisan poll watchers to record a voter who fills out their ballot with assistance. It allows for early voting between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. Republican state Sen. Bryan Hughes, one of the bill’s lead sponsors, said that the bill “standardizes and clarifies” election rules so that “every Texan has a fair and equal opportunity to vote, regardless of where in the state they live.” “Overall, this bill is designed to address areas throughout the process where bad actors can take advantage, so Texans can feel confident that their elections...
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Republicans set out late Wednesday to begin passing sweeping new voting restrictions that include reduced options to cast ballots, limits on polling hours and more power handed to partisan poll watchers. The bill was expected to clear the GOP-controlled state Senate — a key marker in a campaign by Republicans, including Gov. Greg Abbott, to impose new restrictive measures over elections in America’s biggest red state. A vote was expected late Wednesday. It comes after an elections overhaul was signed into law last week in Georgia, where opponents have already filed lawsuits and are calling for boycotts of corporations that are silent on restrictive voting measures. Critics of the Texas legislation known as Senate Bill 7 say it particularly targets expanded access put into place during last year’s election in Harris County, which is home to more than 2 million voters, controlled by Democrats and a key Texas battleground that includes Houston. One measure would eliminate drive-thru voting, which more than 127,000 people around Houston used during early voting last year. More than...

    Millions of Texans were left without power due to an intense polar blast that has hit large swaths of the country. Without power, many Texans flocked to Burger King to get a hot meal.

    The ruling came after Republican activists in Texas tried to get elections officials to throw out nearly 127,000 ballots. A panel of federal appeals court judges has rejected an eleventh hour Republican effort to bar Election Day drive-thru voting in Houston. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans denied the request in a one-sentence ruling issued late Monday. The court hadn't been asked to invalidate votes already cast at drive-thru sites in the Houston area. The request stemmed from a lawsuit brought by conservative Texas activists, who have railed against expanded voting access in Harris County, where a record 1.4 million early votes have already been cast. The county is the nation's third-most populous and a crucial battleground in Texas, where Donald Trump and Republicans are bracing for the closest election in America's largest red state in decades on Tuesday.
    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A panel of federal appeals court judges has rejected an eleventh hour Republican effort to bar Election Day drive-thru voting in Houston.

Harris County Democratic Party spokeswoman Angelica Luna-Kaufman said the appeals court decision was expected following a ruling earlier Monday by a federal judge who rejected a Republican effort to invalidate nearly 127,000 votes in Houston because the ballots were cast at drive-thru polling centers established during the pandemic. “We are not...
    The Houston-area county at the center of multiple legal fights related to voting closed 9 out of 10 of its drive-thru voting locations. "In order to allow for drive-thru voting on Election Day while ensuring that all votes will be counted, the only drive-thru voting center on Election Day will be at Toyota Center," Harrison County Clerk Chris Hollins said. "My job is to protect the right to vote for all Harris County voters, and that includes those who are going to vote on Election Day. I cannot in good faith encourage voters to cast their votes in tents if that puts their votes at risk."

    Nine of 10 drive-thru polling sites in Harris County — the largest in Texas — were shuttered ahead of Election Day following a court battle over ballots cast there. Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins closed the majority of the sites despite federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen ruling late Monday afternoon that the 127,000 drive-thru ballots already cast would not be invalidated, ABC13 reported. Hollins, a Democrat, tweeted that he “cannot in good faith encourage voters to cast their votes in tents if that puts their votes at risk.” “This evening, Judge Hanen issued his order upholding drive-thru voting during the Early Voting period,” Hollins explained on Twitter. “He also stated his view that the tents that house most of the drive-thru voting centers would not qualify as ‘buildings,’ which are required for Election Day polling places.” As a result, the clerk said the only drive-thru site that would remain open would be at Toyota Center in Houston, which he says “fits the Judge’s definition of a ‘building.'” Hanen ruled against a conservative activist and three Republican candidates who filed a...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A Texas man working in Los Angeles didn’t get his absentee ballot in the mail, so he decided to vote in person. Jeff Wilson, a Texas man who works in Los Angeles, drove 1,200 miles to cast his ballot. (KENS 5) The problem is that Jeff Wilson’s nearest vote center is more than 1,000 miles away. Wilson left California Sunday afternoon headed for Kendall County, Texas — about 50 miles north of San Antonio — so he can cast his ballot bright and early Tuesday morning. “If I’m gonna drive 1,217 miles and sleep in my car for a few hours, I think there aren’t a whole lot of excuses to drive three or four minutes to the polling station and maybe wait a while,” he said. In Texas, voters can apply to receive a vote-by-mail ballot if they are out of the county on Election Day and during early voting.

    A federal judge in Texas on Monday ruled that 127,000 ballots cast at at drive-thru voting sites will be counted in the presidential election, despite a push from Republicans to invalidate the ballots. Judge Andrew Hanen rejected the last-ditch bid by conservative activists challenging 10 voting sites set up in Harris County as an alternative option for its nearly 5 million residents amid concerns over spreading COVID-19. The decision comes on the heels of a similar ruling in Texas Supreme Court over the weekend. The outcome of the lawsuit was hotly anticipated as the race is expected to be very tight in the county. While President Trump won in the Lone Star State by nine points in the last election, Democrat Joe Biden could still have a chance in the historically Republican state, polls show.

Over 20,000 more votes are expected to take place at the drive-thru locations on Tuesday, according to top local election official County Clerk Chris Hollins. Texas has...
    A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit filed by four Republicans seeking to prevent officials from counting about 127,000 votes cast at drive-thru polling locations in the Houston area. The lawsuit asked a judge to invalidate votes cast at the drive-thru sites. Harris County's 10 drive-thru locations were established as part of an effort to limit the spread of coronavirus. Judge Andrew Hanen's ruling comes just over one day before voting concludes in the presidential election, and one day after the Texas Supreme Court denied a similar petition seeking to block Harris County's drive-thru votes filed by the same group of Republicans. The Texas Supreme Court already rejected a similar case last month. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox In delivering his decision just half an hour after hearing arguments, Hanen criticized the timing of the lawsuit. "I don't find it timely.

Phillip/AP For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.A conservative federal judge rebuffed GOP attempts to invalidate 127,000 drive-through votes in Harris County, Texas, ruling that the Republicans did not have standing to sue. “People have been voting since October 13,” said Judge Andrew Hanen, who was appointed by George W. Bush and is regarded as one of the most conservative judges in America. “I find that not to be timely,” he said of the lawsuit. Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins adopted drive-through voting as a safe way to vote in a pandemic, especially since Texas law does not allows voters under 65 to cite fear of contracting COVID-19 as a reason to vote by mail. It proved very popular and helped lead to record voter turnout in the county, comprising nearly 10 percent of total votes. Bipartisan county officials and...
