TEXTING & DRIVING STATISTICS

There's only one state where you can text and drive

Texting-while-drivingThe dangers of texting and driving are obvious — especially since most of us have done it and realized the danger after swerving a bit into the other lane. 

But these statistics below will show you just how serious texting and driving is — starting with the fact people texting or reading texts are 23% more likely to get into a car accident.

Some more shocking statistics:

  • From the Department of Transportation: Cell phones are involved in some 1.6 million automobile-related accident annually — which cause some 500,000 injuries and leads to the deaths of some 6,000 each year.
  • A University of Utah study showed that the reaction time of a teenage driver who is using his/her cellphone is the same as a 70-year-old driver who is not using one.
  • Texting or reading a text typically takes about 4.6 seconds. If you’re [...]

SOME HELPFUL TIPS FOR NEW DRIVERS

Special Thanks To Liberty Driving Scool

HEY NEW DRIVERS!!!  Click READ MORE  to watch this video before you go for your driving test.

 

For the past few years, various car makers have been offering blind-spot detection systems for their cars’ side mirrors. Often complex, these systems employ cameras or radar to scan the adjoining lanes for vehicles that may have disappeared from view.    (CLICK READ MORE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO ON THE NEXT PAGE)

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) published a paper in 1995 suggesting how outside mirrors could be adjusted to eliminate blind spots. The paper advocates adjusting the mirrors so far outward that the viewing angle of the side mirrors just overlaps that of the cabin’s rearview mirror. This can be disorienting for drivers used to seeing the flanks of their own car in the side mirrors. But when correctly positioned, the mirrors negate a car’s blind spots. This obviates the need to glance over your shoulder to safely change lanes as well as the need for [...]

Just as the summer driving season officially kicked off this past Memorial Day, there was some unsettling news about the safety of car airbags. On May 19 the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced the need to recall nearly 34 million vehicles because of concerns about the propellant that launches the airbag in the event of an accident.

Although the largest automotive recall in U.S. history, it is by no means the first related to airbag safety. So what do drivers need to know in order to keep themselves and their families safe?

DID YOU KNOW?

30 MPH – The vehicle speed at which U.S. federal regulations currently require airbags to inflate in a crash test against a concrete barrier. Should I worry about the recall?   Given that the recent airbag recall affects about [...]

Dodge Charger, F-250 popular with car theives

Auto thefts decline because of technology, but statistics conflict

img-1The most theft-prone vehicle in America might be the Dodge Charger. Or it might be the Ford F-250 pickup truck.

Those are the contradictory conclusions of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the insurance industry-funded Highway Loss Data Institute.

Still, the government agency and private group agree that the theft of late-model vehicles is on a rapid decline in the United States. One reason: automakers’ increasing use of ignition immobilizers, which stop thieves from hot-wiring cars. Nearly 90 percent of 2012 models are equipped with them.

In a report released on Monday, NHTSA said the car stolen most often during the 2011 calendar year was the Charger, with 4.8 thefts for every 1,000 cars produced in 2011. It was followed by the Mitsubishi Galant, Hyundai Accent, Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet HHR among vehicles with more than 5,000 units [...]

img-2Global sales of BMW Group’s core brand rose faster in June than at Audi and Mercedes-Benz as demand from China and the United States helped the premium carmaker to extend a lead over the two rivals in the first six months of the year.

Sales at the brand were up 9 percent last month to 153,075, the group said today, compared with growth of 5 percent to 140,300 and 8 percent to 131,609 at Audi and Mercedes respectively.

Six-month sales at BMW brand rose 8 percent to 804,000 cars, expanding the lead over runner-up Audi to 24,000 from 11,000 after five months. Half-year sales at Audi and Mercedes rose 6 percent each to 780,500 and 694,000 respectively.

“BMW has stronger momentum than Audi and Mercedes, that won’t change in the second half,” said Hanover-based NordLB analyst Frank Schwope. “Design [...]

img-3Tesla Motors Inc., the world’s best-performing automotive stock this year, will join the Nasdaq-100 Index next week, filling the spot vacated by Oracle Corp., which is moving to the New York Stock Exchange.

The electric-car maker will be added to the gauge, which tracks the biggest companies on the Nasdaq, before the start of trading on July 15, Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. said in a statement Monday. Oracle, which last month said it will join the NYSE, is the biggest company to jump between the competing exchanges.

Shares of Tesla, the carmaker headed by billionaire Elon Musk, have more than tripled this year as the popularity of its new Model S sedan helped the company turn its first quarterly profit. Gaining entry to benchmarks tracked by investors is attractive to public companies because it provides a guaranteed shareholder base.

img-4The Toyota Camry and the Honda Civic, the top-selling mid-size and compact cars in the U.S., face risks of reduced production as inventories of the models rise, an RBC Capital Markets report said.

Toyota’s Camry exceeded its seasonal historical average inventory by more than 15 days supply in June and Honda carried about 25 days more Civics than usual, Joseph Spak, a New York-based analyst for RBC, said in today’s report. Camry and Civic were the only models identified as at risk for reduced output among 16 of the top-selling vehicles in the U.S. market. General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC all added U.S. market share in the first six months of 2013, the first time that all three gained first-half share in 20 years. Models such as GM’s Chevrolet Cruze compact and Ford’s Fusion [...]
