The Fascinating Anatomy of the Presidential Motorcade
"The incredible focus and professionalism of everyone involved, and the way they balance time and risk, is mind boggling. When you think of the term 'well-oiled machine,' this is the picture that should pop into your head. There is an absolutely astonishing amount of moving parts that go into each and every Presidential movement."

Dashing through the Snow in a 603-HP Mercedes-AMG | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
Canada isn’t exactly a popular winter getaway spot for Americans, and Gimli, Manitoba, a small town situated about 60 miles north of Winnipeg, isn’t even a popular winter destination for Canadians. But we have a feeling that would all change if more people knew about the screaming good time they could have driving a 603-hp Mercedes-AMG E63 S on ice.
A 400-acre section of Lake Winnipeg, once it is well and truly frozen, serves as the North American home of Mercedes’ AMG Driving Academy’s Winter Sporting program, where a few thousand dollars can purchase two or three days of hooning around under the careful instruction of half a dozen seriously skilled drift instructors—perhaps the most fun that can be had at that latitude anywhere on Earth. You could travel farther for this experience, as we did three years ago—AMG also offers the program in Arjeplog, Sweden, another 16 degrees of latitude north and many, many more hours of air travel away. By comparison, Manitoba is in our back yard, and the savings on airfare and time wasted in airports could let you upgrade to the top three-day Pro program.

The next level of driverless cars: how to solve the problem of humans falling asleep
Read more

Two of the six collisions involving autonomous vehicles in California so far this year involved humans colliding with self-driving cars, apparently on purpose, according to incident reports collected by the California department of motor vehicles.

On 10 January, a pedestrian in San Francisco’s Mission District ran across the street to confront a GM Cruise autonomous vehicle that was waiting for people to cross the road, according to an incident report filed by the car company. The pedestrian was “shouting”, the report states, and “struck the left side of the Cruise AV’s rear bumper and hatch with his entire body”.

No injuries occurred, but the car’s left tail light was damaged.

In a separate incident just a few blocks away on 28 January, a taxi driver in San Francisco got out of his car, approached a GM Cruise autonomous vehicle and “slapped the front passenger window, causing a scratch”.

The police were not called in either case.

Relaxe pour l’automobiliste qui avait mortellement percuté un cycliste - La Voix du Nord
Une lumière aveuglante qui l’éblouissait malgré son pare-soleil. Les gendarmes ont d’ailleurs fait état de cette même gêne à laquelle ils ont dû faire face en arrivant sur les lieux du drame ce matin-là...
Aucune faute de conduite n’avait été relevée par l’enquête et tous les tests toxicologiques d’usage en matière d’accident routier étaient revenus négatifs. C’est logiquement que l’affaire avait été classée sans suite...
Les parties civiles s’appuient sur la maladie de Parkinson dont le prévenu est atteint depuis 2009 et qui a la particularité d’être dégénérative. Prendre le volant constituerait selon eux une imprudence. Mais le prévenu suivait son traitement lui permettant d’atténuer les tremblements. Le tribunal a considéré qu’il n’y avait pas de faute de conduite pouvant lui être imputée, prononçant une relaxe.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS Hits 200+ MPH On the Autobahn | DriveTribe
One of my bucket list items is to take a fast car and push it to the limit on the Autobahn. It doesn't even need to be a performance car; just something where I can push it as far as it can go. My father in law lived in Germany for 7 years while diving an old Volvo wagon; he said maxing that thing out was the most fun he has had in years.
Imagine, then, what it must be like to take a Porsche 911 GT2 RS to the max. Normally, the GT2 RS is limited to 211 MPH. With the limiter disabled, the car can reach 221 MPH. Can it actually reach its claimed top unlimited speed? That's what the folks at Sport Auto wanted to find out.

MIT study shows how much driving for Uber or Lyft sucks | TechCrunch
The exploitative asymmetry of ride-hailing platforms comes because workers have a certain amount of fixed costs but the platform intermediary can just hike its commission at will and lower the service cost to the end user whenever it wants to increase competitiveness vs a rival business.

“At the end of the day there are a certain amount of fixed costs [for drivers],” says Tluszcz. “You have to buy a car, you have to get insurance, you have to pay for gas… And if you as an intermediary, which those platforms are, are taking an increasing amount of commission — 10%, 15%, now 20 in most of their markets — and then you’re using the price of the trip as a way of beating your competitor… then you as a driver are sitting there with basically all of your fixed costs and your income is going down and frankly the only way to cover your costs is to spend more hours in the car.

“Which is frankly what’s clearly illustrated by this study. These people have to spend so much time to cover their costs when you break it down to an hourly revenue, it’s a pitiful amount. And by the way you have no social coverage because you’ve got to take care of that yourself.”
