VW Engineer Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison for “Diesel Emissions Fraud”

Article Number: 

Road Rules has been writing about the Volkswagen [VW] diesel emissions scandal from the time the story first broke in the fall of 2015.  Ten articles later —over close to a two year period— the first person prosecuted in the US in connection with the scandal has been sentenced on August 25th, 2017 by US District Court Judge Sean Cox in Detroit to 40 months in prison, a US$200,000 fine, and post release supervision.

The Diverging Diamond Intersection

Article Number: 

Adding the word ‘cloverleaf’ to the series ‘jughandle, hook, trumpet, and diamond’ should be the ‘dead giveaway’ that intersection design somehow connects them all.

Drunk Driving Cases. Technicalities and Loopholes

Article Number: 

Drunk driving is broadly condemned and approval for those charged “getting off on a technicality” in short supply. But for protection of our personal freedoms, drunk driving laws are necessarily highly technical, resulting in court decisions (and media reports of same) that often read like puzzlers.

Engineering a Way Around Pollution Regulations

Article Number: 

Volkswagen’s alleged decision to risk fooling regulators using software that enabled their diesel cars to pass emissions testing while failing in ‘real-world’ driving have always begged for some broader context assuring such risk-taking would likely be ‘OK’.

Amazing News Cycles Regarding the Automobile

Article Number: 

These days, 24/7 news cycles can barely handle the glut of breaking news, let alone the latest developments in ongoing stories. And just when you think a behaviour or a trend or a conspiracy theory can’t find the ‘next level,’ it does. Road safety and automotive news are not immune.
