Summer: A Time for Vacations, and Road Accidents

Article Number: 

One may find counterintuitive a long-established pattern in traffic safety statistics.

Solar Panel Roads: An Interesting Idea

Article Number: 

About an hour’s drive south of the British Columbia border town of Creston is Sandpoint, Idaho, population 7,365. Recently named the "Most Beautiful Small Town" in the United States, Sandpoint boasts a healthy mix of economic activities: forest products, light manufacturing, tourism, recreation and government services carried on in a pristine setting where the summers are warm and sunny and the winters cold and snowy.

Eradicating the Car Crash Like Smallpox

Article Number: 

Recent high profile municipal road safety plans—Vancouver’s and New York City’s for example—have imported the ‘Vision Zero’ objective, a future in which no drivers or passengers or vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists are injured or killed on the roads. Inevitably, discussion of this objective turned to the aspirational value of a utopian vision, which implied, of course, that it was impossible to achieve and unrealistic and, hence a nice idea, a catchy term, but out of reach.

Priorities: From Cars to Computers?

Article Number: 

Although the modern automobile was essentially invented at the end of the 19th century, fine-tuning of the basic technology along with Henry Ford’s ‘everyman’ pricing in the early 20th century secured ‘the automobile age’ label for most of the rest of the century.

Will Young Adults Continue the Tradition of Car Ownership?

Article Number: 

Car sales have been robust in the first six months of 2014. Despite its ignition switch recalls, GM’s US sales of cars and light trucks totaled 1.46 million, up from 1.42 million for the same period in 2013. Ford’s US vehicle deliveries declined by 1.9 percent, but Chrysler had a 12 percent increase in its US sales. US sales of Toyota’s Camry sedan rose 7.2 percent putting it on track for the 13th year as ‘the top-seller.’ And global car buying has matched the US trend with sales up 8% over 2013.
