When Your Car Takes You For a Ride

Article Number: 

On March 31, 2015, another ‘first’ was added to the history books. A blue Audi SQ5 crossover drove into New York City or, more precisely drove itself into the city just in time for the opening of the New York International Auto Show, ending a journey begun nine days earlier on Treasure Island, located in San Francisco Bay near the mid-point of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in northern California. The Audi headed south to Los Angeles on Day 1, and then turned east to cross the southern states for three days.

The Day When Your Car Refuses to Crash

Article Number: 

Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications is a system for transmitting basic safety information between vehicles travelling on the same roadway to minimize, if not wholly prevent, the possibility of them crashing into one another. Road Rules has written about V2V but the topic has not received much coverage in the main stream media, buried as it has been in technology development and study of its feasibility, implementation, costs/benefits—necessary for any such massive shift in safety systems.

Fiery Crashes?

Article Number: 

Safe fuel tank design involves storing highly flammable fuel, which means being leak and emission proof. It must include a gauge and be refillable. It must connect with or incorporate a filter and a pump. How it is fabricated and where it is located—all involve safety considerations. The safest location has proven to be out of the ‘crumple’ zone, which means, where the engine is in the front of the vehicle, and in front of the rear axle.

Beyond a Reasonable Doubt. Our Standard of Proof in Criminal Matters

Article Number: 

Driving while intoxicated has been illegal in Canada since 1921, and the ‘modern’ version of this rule—the three distinct offences of impaired driving, driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of over 80mg per 100mg of blood, and failing or refusing to comply with a demand to breath test for BAC without reasonable excuse—for roughly the past 40 years. In this time, impaired driving case law has grown to include almost every nuance of interpretation for every possible set of facts. Almost is, of course, an important qualifier.

Keeping Up with the Traffic Flow

Article Number: 

On which part of the roadway and at what speed you may drive your car are legally defined in sections 145 to 160 of the BC Motor Vehicle Act. A number of these sections address particular roads and particular designated lanes, but most set out the basic rules that all licensed drivers must obey: drive on the right side of the road and if safe to do so, at the posted speed limit.
