New Study Shows Cities With Most and Fewest Collisions

  New Study Shows Cities With Most and Fewest Collisions Allstate Insurance has released their latest Safe Driving Study, and the results show that collisions are up on average, although it was down in most of the provinces in the study. There's a new city in the top spot for safest in the country, and a repeat offender for the most collisions. Research Research New Used New & Used Make Model The ninth annual Safe Driving Study looks at Allstate Canada data in Alberta, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Ontario. Allstate then ranks communities in those provinces by collision frequency rate. That's collision claims per 100 cars.

The Ontario government set a lofty goal for EV adoption by 2020. But despite country-leading incentives, as well as networks of charging stations and increased consumer education, a new report suggests that meeting the goal might not happen.

So far, the government incentives include $75 million in rebates to buyers including up to $14,000 on many EVs, building networks of chargers including 500 around the province and linking Ontario with Manitoba. The province also spent more than $1 million opening Plug'n Drive, an EV education centre. Despite that, electric vehicle sales made up less than one percent of all passenger vehicle sales in the province and The Canadian Press report says that sales will remain far from the five percent target.

Keeping repair records can save you money in the long run

  Keeping repair records can save you money in the long run Your paperwork can be proof of work done for warranties or may even just help out your friendly mechanicIf you never frequent a repair facility other than your selling dealership, and get all of your vehicle needs handled in this sole source, you might rely on you retailer’s record keeping system. But studies and surveys show us that the majority of owners defect from manufacturer stores as soon as the base warranty expires, and a good portion look to other providers from day one.

Rising EV penetration is thus likely to have an impact on low-voltage distribution grids in residential or commercial areas first. Reuters (2017), “Germany likely to miss e-cars target , says Merkel”, www.reuters.com/article/us- autos-electric-germany-idUSKCN18B24Z.

The report said Dutch renewable energy will rise to 23.9 percent of the total by 2030, while greenhouse gas emissions will fall by 34 percent from 1990 levels. That would still miss EU-wide goals of 27 percent and 40 percent, respectively. As the Netherlands transitions away from traditional energy

Industry analyst Dennis DesRosiers told The Canadian Press that "the chances of meeting it aren't low, they're zero."

University of Windsor auto analyst Tony Faria agreed, saying that "we will almost assuredly get to five percent electric vehicles purchased or on the road at some point in time, it's just not going to be in the next couple of years."

So what's stopping people from moving to EVs? Range anxiety is still a concern. People have gotten used to the flexibility of gas, and a 500-charger network that isn't yet fully open isn't going to put an end to it. The Ontario government has taken steps to put more chargers in more public places, office buildings, and homes, but it will take years to build out the network.

When it comes to the government rebates, dealers are also running into issues. Frank Notte of the Trillium Automobile Dealers Association said that dealers are waiting up to six months for reimbursement. He said that a single dealer is owed more than $400,000 and that GM dealers in the GTA alone are owed $2.3 million. The Ministry of Transportation told CP that they are working to fix the problem, but until it's fixed, the system is likely not popular on the sales floor.

Few and far between are cars that survive the bureaucracy-filled odyssey from show stand to showroom without suffering character-killing dilution. Yet the production Stinger’s shape matches nearly line for line that of the Kia GT Concept, which made its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show.

(Bloomberg) -- The U.K. will miss its carbon-emissions targets even in the best-case scenario where all of its green initiatives go exactly to plan, according to The nation will probably exceed it by at least 3 percent, or 65 million tons of CO2, a report from the advisory group sponsored by the Department for

Both DesRosiers and Faria think that EV numbers will rise, but that it will take longer than what the government has allowed. Once the charging network is in place, prices fall to closer to that of gas-powered cars, more people experience EVs through friends, neighbours, and education resources like Plug'n Drive, and as the choice of EVs expands, the cultural shift to electricity will gain speed.

His Model S conversion adds a new sculpted rear end with a bold stance, a longer roof and extensive chrome around the side windows that van Roij says adds visual length and "reduces the extra optical mass" of a station wagon.
