Enthusiasts Hit and Run Leads to Rollover, But Doesn't Stop There
The 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography Is A $207,900 Pool House On Wheels
The refreshed 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography is here and it really seems like it’s for people who love the comforts of their own houses so much that they could not bear to leave them behind. So they crammed all the amenities into a Range Rover instead. An extra long wheelbase gives backseat passengers nearly four feet of legroom and seats with 40-degree recline capability, heated calf and foot rests, 22-way adjustment and a hot stone massage function. Here I was, thinking you had to be lying flat on your stomach to get one of those, but what do I know.
It's a tale of road rage and what not to do from both sides of a collision. And of just how strong the BMW 7 series is. A road rage video of a hit, a chase, a rollover, and more chase. Plus two drivers who should probably get their driving privileges suspended.
The video starts on the Atlantic City Turnpike, just south of Camden, New Jersey. The driver of the camera car, agets rear-ended by a You can hear the bump on camera. That's mistake number one. The driver of the BMW tries to pull over but the Accord driver doesn't. That's mistake number two. And that's where it gets reckless.
This Is the Safest Seat in Your Car
Researchers have repeatedly found that the safest seat in any car in actually the one you probably want to sit in the very least.While it’s usually the most dreaded seat in the vehicle, researchers have repeatedly found that the middle seat in the back is the safest one in the car. In 2006, researchers at the University of Buffalo studied all auto crashes involving a fatality in the U.S. between 2000 and 2003 where someone occupied the rear middle-seat, and found that those in the back are 59% to 86% safer than passengers in the front seat and that, in the back seat, the person in the middle is 25% safer than the ones sitting next to them.
The BMW takes off in pursuit of the Accord, with both weaving in and out of traffic. The Accord heads for an off-ramp with the BMW close behind. But through a combination of slick roads, cold temperatures, the wrong tires, and road rage, the BMW driver spins out. The car rolls onto the roof, but somehow it lands back on all four wheels.
Then things really escalate. The BMW driver keeps going in pursuit of the Honda. Likely leaving the Civic driver who stopped to help incredibly confused.
The chase continues while the BMW passenger calls 911.
There were originally three clips, but the last two have been taken down. According to a thread on thefrom viewers who saw the other two clips before they got taken down, the chase continued until the BMW spun out again in a parking lot. The driver hit a curb, broke a rear control arm, and the chase ended.
How can we stop impaired, distracted drivers once and for all?
Perhaps the best way to fight impairment and curtail distractions is through a completely zero-tolerance policyEasy: Zero tolerance for booze and drugs, automatic surrender of any handheld device if you’re involved in a collision, and manufacturers must make infotainment systems that require severely limited physical interaction unless the vehicle is in park. Easy.
If someone hits you and tries to run, don't chase them. Get a description and a license plate number, and call the police. Because things won't get better. They'll only get worse. Just watch.

Automakers Increasingly Offer Ways to Deactivate Stop/Start Systems (Temporarily) .
<p>New-car buyers can expect to see more stop/start engine technologies—and temporary override options. Here's why.</p><p>.</p>When Buick launched the 2019 Envision last month, the brand said a decision to add an Off switch to its stop/start engine technology was "driven by customer feedback." As many new-vehicle owners know, stop/start tech has had a growing presence in nonhybrid vehicles because it saves fuel and reduces pollution. But apparently not all Buick owners have liked the feature, and dissenters who have spoken up seem far from alone.
