Stop speeding before it stops you

 Stop speeding before it stops you

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 13,000 lives were lost across America in speeding-related traffic crashes during 2005.

NHTSA considers a crash to be speeding-related if the driver was charged with a speeding-related offense, or if the responding officer indicates that the driver was driving too fast for conditions at the time or was exceeding the posted speed limit.  In 2005, speeding was a contributing factor in 30 percent of all fatal crashes nationally.

“Even one life lost to speeding is one too many,” said Lt.

EPA to power plants: Clean up your act

EPA to power plants: Clean up your act

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Environmental Protection Agency is clamping down on power plant pollution in 27 states, including Arkansas, that contributes to unhealthy air downwind.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson announced on Thursday a plan to reduce smokestack pollution causing smog and soot in downwind states - where it combines with local air contaminants, making it impossible for those states to meet air quality standards on their own.

The rule differs from one proposed by the Obama administration in July.

End is near for unlimited wireless

End is near for unlimited wireless

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - When Verizon Wireless kills off its unlimited data plan for new smartphone customers on Thursday, it will mark another blow for endless Web surfing and video streaming.

The move by the nation's largest wireless carrier has long been anticipated. More people are switching to smartphones and using an increasing amount of data for all manner of wireless activities. The shift could help wireless carriers ensure that they can handle the traffic flowing over the new higher-speed "4G," or fourth-generation, data networks they're rolling out.

AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile USA, the second- and fourth-largest U.S. carriers, respectively, have already set limits on monthly data usage. AT&T uses tiered data plans like the one Verizon is rolling out, while T-Mobile slows data speeds for unlimited data plan customers who use up their monthly allotment.

Broadway Bridge to get overhaul

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It's time for the Broadway Bridge in Little Rock to get a facelift. The bridge over the Arkansas River is more than 90 years old and needs a major overhaul.

Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department spokesman David Nilles says the bridge is safe but needs to be updated due to its age.

24,000 vehicles a day -- about 17 every minute. That's what the bridge sees on an average day. And it's starting to add up.

Nilles says "We've gotten about 90 years of service out the current Broadway Bridge. It was constructed in 1923 so we've had good service out of it, we've just reached the point where it's time to replace the bridge. "

The Arkansas Highway Transportation Department says they considered two options when faced with future of the aging: either continue to repair the current bridge or to replace the bridge all together.
