4,432 – That’s the number of pedestrians killed by motor vehicles in 2011 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The federal agency recently launched a new campaign focused on pedestrian safety titled, Everyone is a Pedestrian. Was that ever in debate; who is or isn’t a pedestrian? If it was…
Earlier today I found myself on Mitsubishi's corporate web page browsing a gallery of concept cars. I laughed when I came across the Street Raider pickup truck and EvoLander SUV.
Why? Because they're exactly the opposite of what Mitsu has produced lately. Like the Mirage, a car branded as "a new kind of fun”...because…
In January 10, 2012 the Department of Transportation wrote letters to members of Congress explaining they would not be able to meet their deadline of February 28, 2011 to implement a new law to improve rear visibility aimed at reducing the number of backover fatalities.
Last night I came across the video below, titled 2013 Ford Focus ST — TV Commercial. It was uploaded last month. In it Ford says BUY A FOCUS ST…because it’s gets great fuel economy.

Today the Senate will begin a 30 hour (if no one seeks to limit debate) deliberation of Senate Bill 743, the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013.

Fast and Furious: Rare Earth
Chevrolet recently pulled the wraps off a Camaro that is better than the two previous track-ready Camaros. The Camaro Z/28 now joins the Camaro SS 1LE, Camaro ZL1 and the Camaro NHRA race-ready chassis in a crowded room of track-inspired/ready/built Camaros.
The internet erupted in outrage over comments made by Stirling Moss on women and their ability to compete with men in auto racing.
After writing about the Jeep Cherokee earlier today I started to wonder how it might look like in a few other colors. Using what little knowledge I have of Photoshop, I made the following colorized versions of Jeep’s new CUV in Trailhawk trim.
