Red light in San Jose changed after ‘rebel’ Roadshow reader complains

Traffic East Bay Times

If your car has a flat tire or is damaged in some way, always try to drive to the shoulder of the road rather than stop and get out and walk.
'Q: I sent you a letter regarding the controversy about drivers turning right off the northbound Interstate 680 off-ramp to Alum Rock Avenue on a red arrow, and it was published a few weeks ago. To my pleasant surprise, the red light was changed to a circle. I can now make that turn (in a safe manner) without fear of persecution. I will take credit for initiating this revolutionary improvement, and gladly give you credit for spreading my gospel. Dave Albert, San Jose A: You and the legions who pushed for this change deserve the credit, but I’ll take some, too. Now folks, behave yourself. No rolling through the right turn and jamming up this busy intersection. Q: I was southbound on Interstate 580 two miles from Interstate 238 about 7:45 p.m. in light Saturday night traffic. Suddenly the car in front came to an abrupt stop and I saw a car perpendicular to the fast lane and one in the No. 4 lane in the same 90-degree position. The occupants of the first decided to walk across the freeway with no concern for anything (like life). I saw no tire marks, leaking fluids, or damage. I’ve seen many after the fact situations that defy reality. Just really stupid people who shouldn’t drive – ever. Keith Scott, Milpitas A: Or get out of their cars and walk across a freeway. This is a leading cause or road deaths and injuries. Keep driving to the shoulder or an off-ramp even if you have a flat tire or other damage. Q: Last month I fainted, fell, hit my head, and was unconscious for 30 seconds. The ER doctor said he had reported me to the DMV and health department and that I should get cleared by my doctor before driving again. My internist gave me a slip of paper OKing my driving. Am I supposed to file anything with the DMV? Jim Konsevich A: Your record is clear. The local DMV Driver Safety Office will not start an investigation or potentially ask for a medical evaluation until it has received a report from a doctor or health department. Since your doctor has cleared you to drive, you may continue to operate a motor vehicle. The driver can either wait until he is contacted by the DMV safety office. It will inform you whether or not you need to have the medical evaluation completed by the doctor.  A positive medical exam is often all that is required to clear a driver who has experienced a single non-seizure related loss of consciousness episode. Or you can have doctor complete the DS 326 form available online and mail it to: San Jose Driver Safety Office, 90 Great Oaks Blvd., Suite 104, San Jose, 95119 Join  Gary Richards for an hourlong chat noon Wednesday at www.mercurynews.com/live-chats.

Public Hearing Today On Port Authority’s Planned Hikes At Bridges, Tunnels And Area Airports

Traffic CBS New York

Last month, the agency laid out plans to raise tolls at bridge and tunnels and increase fares on PATH service and the trains to John F. Kennedy and Newark Liberty international airports
'NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) –  A public hearing will be held this morning in Manhattan to discuss the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s proposed fare hikes. Last month, the agency laid out plans to raise tolls at bridge and tunnels and increase fares on PATH service and the trains to John F. Kennedy and Newark Liberty international airports. It also wants to apply a $4 surcharge to app-based car services when they pick up riders at New York City-area airport. Under the proposal, tolls at the George Washington Bridge , Lincoln and Holland tunnels and outerbridge crossings would increase by $1. EZPass discounts would be reduced by 25 cents. For PATH riders, a 10-day SmartLink card would rise from $25 to $26. A 30-day unlimited card would go from $106 to $110.25. MORE: Port Authority Plan Calls For Hikes At Bridges, Tunnels And Area Airports The AirTrain fee to JFK Airport would increase from $5 to $7.75, and a $4 fee would be added for all taxi and ride-sharing pick-ups and drop-offs at area airports, similar to fees charged at airports in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. The New York Taxi Workers Alliance said it will ask its 22,000 drivers to strike if the plan is approved. The money would be used to pay for long-planned improvements at JFK, Newark and LaGuardia airports, as well as new projects, like increasing capacity and reducing delays on PATH trains. A final vote is set for September. Today is the first of six hearings.

Pakistan reopens airspace, ending months of flight restrictions

'Pakistan on Tuesday fully reopened its airspace for all civilian traffic, ending months of restrictions affecting major international routes including from India after clashes between the nuclear-armed rivals brought them to the brink of war.”With immediate effect Pakistan airspace is open for all type of civil traffic,” the state-run Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said.A CAA spokesman confirmed to AFP that the eastern airspace along the border with India had been reopened.Pakistan closed its airspace completely after aerial dogfights in February ratcheted up tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi. It removed some restrictions a month later but kept constraints in place along its eastern border with India.The closure disrupted Indian flights headed west, forced Pakistan International Airlines to suspend some of its flights, and effectively closed off major international routes in and out of Islamabad and Lahore, such as the Thai Airways route from Islamabad to Bangkok.The crisis between the countries was first sparked by a suicide bombing in Indian-administered Kashmir in February that killed 40 security personnel and was later claimed by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad.Days later India responded with a cross-border air raid on Pakistan that kicked off a quick succession of attacks and dogfights between the arch-rivals over the disputed Kashmir frontier, spurring fears of all-out war.Pakistani and Indian soldiers have continued to fire over the Line of Control, the de facto border dividing Kashmir, killing several civilians on both sides.Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the end of British colonial rule in 1947.Both claim the Himalayan territory in full and have fought two wars over it.'

D’Arnaud 3 HRs, 3-Run Drive In 9th Lifts Rays Over Yanks

Traffic CBS New York

The Tampa Bay Rays overcame their Yankee Stadium woes to beat New York on Monday night.
'NEW YORK (AP) — Travis d’Arnaud hit three home runs, including a startling, three-run shot with two outs in the ninth inning off Aroldis Chapman, and the Tampa Bay Rays overcame their Yankee Stadium woes to beat New York 5-4 on Monday night. D’Arnaud went the other way on a full-count breaking ball, lofting a go-ahead drive that sailed over the leap of right fielder Aaron Judge. Several Rays players spilled from the dugout to congratulate d’Arnaud while a crowd of 43,173 fell silent. The catcher tied a Tampa Ray record for homers in a game. It has been done five times, most recently by Evan Longoria in 2012. The Yankees had been 49-0 this season when leading after eight innings. The Rays won for just the second time in seven games in the Bronx this year and cut the Yankees’ lead in the AL East to five games. Andrew Kittredge (1-0) got the win despite allowing Edwin Encarnacion’s second homer of the game, a two-run shot in the eighth that put the Yankees up 4-2. Oliver Drake got one out for his first save. Chapman (2-2) gave up a pair of singles to begin the ninth, struck out the next two batters and then was tagged for d’Arnaud’s ninth homer of the season. The 30-year-old backstop has had a tumultuous season, having been designated for assignment by the Mets, signed by the Dodgers and traded to the Rays five days later. But on this night, none of that mattered as he became the first catcher to hit three homers in a game against the Yankees. D’Arnaud led off the game with a homer to right field on a fastball over the middle of the plate. In the third, he hit another to a similar location on the same pitch from James Paxton — a fastball down the middle. D’Arnaud had never batted leadoff before this season, but the innovative Rays have slotted him there seven times. He reached base in all five of his plate appearances Monday, with two walks. It was the fourth multihomer game of d’Arnaud’s career and second this season. Tampa Bay had lost 14 straight series openers at Yankee Stadium. Before Encarnacion’s go-ahead homer, the Yankees kept themselves in the game with some outstanding defense. Judge threw out a runner at third from right field, catcher Gary Sanchez picked a runner off second and Gio Urshela showed off his elite glove at third. Center fielder Aaron Hicks also ran down two long drives. Encarnacion, who began the day batting just .139 since being acquired from Seattle last month, hit a solo shot in the fourth off Blake Snell. After hooking a fastball foul, the slugger drove the next pitch in the same direction a few feet inside the foul pole. Urshela made it 2-all with a home run in the seventh. Encarnacion hit his 27th of the season, good for second in the AL. Snell bounced back from his last start at Yankee Stadium, in which the AL Cy Young Award winner gave up six runs while getting only one out last month. The left-hander tossed five innings of one-run ball. TRAINER’S ROOM Rays: RHP Tyler Glasnow (forearm) will be shut down for another two weeks, manager Kevin Cash said. Glasnow is 6-1 with a 1.86 ERA, but hasn’t pitched since May 10. He had been eligible to come off the injured list last week, but Cash said the team is being cautious with the 25-year-old righty. Yankees: Ace starter Luis Severino and reliever Dellin Betances, both out all season with lat injuries that followed shoulder trouble, began their throwing programs. They each made 25 tosses from 60 feet in right field before the game. There is no timetable for either All-Star right-hander to return, but both expect to pitch in the majors this season. Severino said he would be open to working out of the bullpen, adding the team hadn’t mentioned that possibility. “If they need me quicker as a reliever, I would say yes,” he said. Betances said he had compared notes with Severino on their recoveries. “We’re just trying to do what we love,” Betances said. Manager Aaron Boone was just glad to see them back on the field. “I greeted them with `happy throwing day,”‘ he said. UP NEXT CC Sabathia (5-4) will start his fifth game against the Rays this season on Tuesday night. He is 1-0 with a 2.63 ERA in those outings. The Rays had yet to announce a starter.
