ABC NewsBy MINA KAJI, LUKE BARR and AMANDA MAILE, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Stay-at-home orders are keeping more people off the roads, but police across the country are reporting a rise in reckless driving. In Connecticut, traffic has been cut in half compared to last year, but fatal motor vehicle accidents are up by about 40%. “We’re finding that with the open roads, certain individuals are taking this as an opportunity to push their vehicles to the limit,” Connecticut State Police Trooper Josue Dorelus told ABC News’ Transportation Correspondent Gio Benitez.Dorelus said they have seen a 90% increase in cars going over 15 miles above the speed limit during the coronavirus pandemic. The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) urged drivers nationwide last month to slow down as state highway safety officials started reporting a “severe spike” in speeding.The California Highway Patrol issued nearly 2,500 citations statewide for driving over 100 miles per hour from mid-march to mid-April — an 87% jump from the same time last year. California is now using its more than 700 electronic highway signs to display messages like, “If you must travel do not speed.”“When you’re going in excess of 100 miles an hour, these crashes are inevitably going to be fatal or neat fatal,” Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety President Cathy Chase told ABC News. In Massachusetts, the fatality rate for car crashes is rising. In Minnesota, motor vehicle crashes and fatalities have more than doubled compared to the same time period in previous years. Experts are still unsure what is motivating people to engage in more reckless driving behaviors.“Some people might be feeling cooped up and think of it as a stress relief,” Chase said. “Some people may have wanted to do this their whole lives and now they see the roads have opened up a bit and they’re taking advantage of the situation.” Pam Shadel Fischer, GSHA’s senior director of external engagement, said it could be because it is harder for drivers to gauge their own speed without other drivers on the road. “Certainly traffic volumes dictate speed,” Fischer said, “and there is something to be said for what we’d call that herd mentality.”While officers try to crack down on speeding, they are also taking extra safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Dorelus said that in Connecticut they are now wearing masks for the duration of the traffic stops, utilizing plastic bags to take the documents of drivers and taking pictures of documents when possible.As the nation reopens, the National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt renewed his call for road safety on Monday. “As we move toward a new normal, we need to get there safely,” Sumwalt said. “Don’t speed. Don’t drive distracted.”According to the GHSA its too soon to tell whether or not some states that have lifted shelter in place orders have seen speeding or reckless driving return to pre-pandemic levels. “It will be interesting to see what happens when more people start going on the roads,” Chase said. “When shelter-in-place orders are lifted, whether this dangerous and deadly behavior is reduced.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

It was President Barack Obama’s final White House Correspondents’ Dinner as president – and he hopes the country will be around to see another one.“It’s an honor to be at my last, and perhaps the last correspondents’ dinner. You all look great; the end of the Republic has never looked better,” he said, kicking off his remarks Saturday night at the 102nd annual event that brings together journalists, politicians and celebrities for a dinner and celebration at the Washington Hilton.“It’s my eighth and final appearance at this unique event. I am excited. If this material works well, I’m going to use it at Goldman Sachs next year. Earn me some serious Tubmans,” he said, jabbing Hillary Clinton, before slinging other barbs at Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg and Reince Priebus. Bernie Sanders, who attended the dinner, is “the bright young face of the Democratic Party”; Bloomberg is “actually worth the amount of money he says he is” – a pointed dig at Donald Trump – and Hillary Clinton is the aging family aunt who just signed up for Facebook.“You’ve got to admit, though, Hillary trying to appeal to young voters is a little bit like your relative just signing up for Facebook. ‘Did you get my poke?’” the president joked.“Bernie, you look like a million bucks — or we’ll put it in terms you’ll understand: You look like 37,000 donations of $27,” Obama added.As for the Republican National Committee: “Guests were asked if they wanted steak or fish, and a whole bunch of you wrote in Paul Ryan.”On Ted Cruz: “He went to Hoosier country, called the hoop a basketball ring. What else is in his lexicon? Baseball sticks? Football hats? But sure, I’m the foreign one.”He also poked fun at The Washington Post, Buzzfeed and the Boston Globe’s “Spotlight” investigation team. Media bold-face names included CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Soul singer Aretha Franklin, who performed at the White House jazz concert Friday night, also attended.Before the dinner, first lady Michelle Obama chatted with Wilmore, while the president was spotted chatting with Gerald Seib, the Wall Street Journal’s Washington Bureau chief, and Carol Lee, the newspaper’s White House correspondent and president of the White House Correspondents’ Association. Biden, who sat at a table with Mirren and Bloomberg, was spotted chatting with Jason Rezaian, The Washington Post reporter who was released in January after spending 18 months in an Iranian prison.The guests’ chatter filled the ballroom for much of the night as the flash of “selfie” and group photos lit up the surroundings. The night before, they’d partied at a series of glitzy parties around Washington, D.C., hosted by The New Yorker, Time and People magazine among others.Lee, Jeff Mason of Reuters and Michelle Obama presented the annual WHCA scholarship recipients as the guests finished up their dinners, which included diver scallops, duck confit and potato soufflé. Lee toasted Rezaian, who gave out the WHCA’s annual journalism awards after shaking the president’s hand.“This is a big intimidating room, but it beats solitary confinement,” Rezaian said to cheers and applause. Also On POLITICO Fourth estate The selling of Obama By Michael Grunwald America 2016 White House mocks Trump’s foreign policy speech By Nolan D. McCaskill The president was expected to light into Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner who famously bristled while the president roasted the mogul in person as he sat at the dinner in 2011. And he didn’t hold back.“The guy wanted to give his hotel business and boost, and now we’re praying that Cleveland makes it through July,” Obama said. “I’m a little disappointed he wasn’t here tonight. We had so much fun last time.”He also appeared in a pre-recorded video with former House Speaker John Boehner, discussing their mutual retirements – and pervasive nicotine habits.Self-deprecating as the occasion requires, Obama said of himself: “In my final year my approval ratings keep going up. The last time I was this high, I was trying to decide on my major.”“Nightly Show” host and comedian Larry Wilmore appeared to fall slightly flat compared with previous raucous acts that have followed the president. He roasted Obama on the toll his years as president have taken.“You look terrible Mr. President … Your hair is so white it tried to punch me at a Trump rally. It’s so white it keeps saying ‘All Lives Matter.’” Continuing a theme, he gave a “shout-out to the print media. No really, you have to shout. They’re all over 70 now.”On Boehner calling Cruz “Lucifer” this week, he mocked the Texas senator and Republican candidate as the Internet’s favorite “Zodiac Killer,” saying that it was pointless for Carly Fiorina to be his vice presidential pick, as “serial killers always work alone.”Politicians in attendance included Vice President Joe Biden; Democratic presidential candidate Sanders – sans tuxedo, as promised – former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, accompanied by her husband, Mark Kelly; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, with his wife, Callista; and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was there, as was former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett was spotted chatting with former White House press secretary Jay Carney, while senior Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin also made an appearance. Although Trump declined to attend this year, his sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr. attended with their wives.Movie star attendees included Will Smith, accompanied by his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Emma Watson, Jared Leto, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and Star Wars luminary Carrie Fisher, who was accompanied by her pet French bulldog, Gary.From TV, Kerry Washington was there with many of the “Scandal” cast alongside Bryan Cranston from “Breaking Bad” and former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Onee Manigault. John Wall, of the NBA’s Washington Wizards, brought his mother, Frances Pulley, while U.S. soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo also was here.
Hailie Deegan is in no rush when it comes to her fast-paced career.Turning 18 years old Thursday means Deegan will be able to compete on ovals longer than 1.25 miles and drive full time in any of NASCAR’s three national series. But just because she can doesn’t mean she will. At least not immediately.Right now, the California native is focused on her second K&N Pro Series West season.RELATED: K&N East preview | Watch live, Saturday at 6:45 p.m. ET“Every weekend is a weekend for me to learn something new,” Deegan told NASCAR.com. “A lot of people are like, ‘Oh, it’s just K&N. Wait until you get to (Gander) Trucks or Xfinity.’ But there’s still a lot more money involved than I’ve ever had in my racing career before.“I see it as an opportunity. I don’t want to take it for granted. There’s a lot on the line, let alone my career and my future. So I don’t want to do anything that’s going to hurt it, and everything I do is to make it better.”So far, so good.This season alone, Deegan has visited Victory Lane twice through seven K&N West races. She won the late February opener at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track and then followed up with another win at Colorado National Speedway in early June. The only person with more victories is Derek Kraus (three), and he’s No. 1 in the West championship standings right now with 289 points — just eight more than Deegan, in second.RELATED: Deegan wins with last-lap spin“Gosh, I don’t even want to think about it,” Deegan said. “It’s just you can get caught up in point chasing.”And not every race track or race car warrants that in her mind. Winning, no matter the cost, can be the sole priority at times.“I feel like I’m confident with what I know is a good car and what I know is not,” Deegan said. “I know when I’m having an off weekend, what tracks I’m good at, what tracks I’ve struggled a little bit and where I have to learn more. So I think it’s just coming down to figuring out every single piece of the puzzle has to be right. Like Colorado, everything worked good for me.”Deegan led a race-high 66 laps at Colorado’s 155-lap race. The final go-around saw Deegan bump and spin Kraus out of her way to the checkered flag. It marked the third victory overall in her two-year career. Final Laps: Hailie Deegan spins teammate to win00:0000:0000:00GO LIVEFacebookTwitterEmailEmbedSpeedNormalAutoplay Since Kraus is one of Deegan’s teammates at Bill McAnally Racing, a bit of social media backlash hit afterward.“There were some people where it was like, ‘Oh, well, she needs to be able to pass cleaner’ or ‘You don’t see her making passes before the last lap,’ and stuff,” Deegan said. “Well, no. I don’t make the pass for the win before the last lap because I know what it’s going to take and I want to be the first one to the finish. I don’t want to have to battle it back out again.”That was a big moment for Deegan, who prides herself on having a strong social media presence. It was really the first time people, even if wasn’t a huge amount, came at her. She didn’t back down or cower to the critics. Instead, she stayed true to her personality.And Deegan sure isn’t shy about it.“Once I get on track, I’m aggressive,” she said. “I like throwing elbows. I like rubbing fenders with people. It’s fun to me.”The West title is Deegan’s goal for this season. Ideally, she would like to run a full schedule in the soon-to-be-combined K&N-ARCA Series in 2020. That dream scenario would also include a few Gander Trucks races by the end of the year — emphasis on the words “a few.”The urge to surge ahead in her career lives in the back of her mind. It’s just not strong enough to derail the path Deegan has already planned out.“Sometimes, I just want to go to Trucks racing,” Deegan said. “Like I see people going to race Trucks, I feel like I can go race Trucks.“But then, like, I don’t want to make the mistake of doing that too soon. I don’t want to fail. Everything I want to do, I want to succeed at. I want to make sure I don’t have any regrets.”

Claudette Read and Robert Earl Read, both 44, were found guilty by a jury of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and 20 counts of mail fraud, according to U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas John M. Bales.
AMR spokesman Jim Pollard reinforced the need for the scene to be secure before EMS personnel rush in. Pollard said it is national policy to have EMS units stage away from the scene until police have made arrests or made the scene safe to operate in by other means. Jerry Johnston, president of the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, also reinforced AMR’s safety policy. In an interview with WAPT Stokes is quoted as saying that rescuers should be willing to risk their lives in saving others. The heated comments started on Thursday when Stokes criticized AMR for not rushing in an rescuing Lee Joseph Martin, who was shot six times at the Pleasant Oaks Apartments. Stokes made the comment that if AMR cannot accept the risk, then they should change their policy of the city should take over the ambulance business. WAPT in Jackson, Mississippi reports that Councilman Kenneth Stokes is standing firm on his statment Thursday that AMR crews should have run into an active shooting incident to rescue a victim. Councilman Stokes maintains that the city has a standard to make sure its citizens are safe, and if AMR is unable to meet that standard, they should break their contract.
