At the 2012 Paris Motor Show Mercedes-Benz has raised the ante for electric car engineering. The show features the new Electric Drive SLS supercar. Early reports about this groundbreaking technology claim that the car can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds—just a nudge shy of the standard production model’s 3.8 seconds.
“The Southern California Luxury Supercar Market wants this car today. We’re already getting calls from clients asking about availability in the US, but we’re still waiting more information, too.” said Managing Partner Steve Zubieta.
“We’ve had inquiries from Malibu to Beverly Hills. Everyone is excited about the Electric Drive SLS—particularly the 740 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. This is a car to see and be seen in.” added Hans Ang, General Sales Manager.
Life in the Fast Lane is Getting Expense, Especially if You Don't Keep Up.
Thursday, March 15, 2012 — Los Angeles, CA
There are few things more aggravating to an average driver, than getting stuck behind a slow motorist on the highway. Especially if that slow driver is all the way to the left â€• in the fast lane. One lawmaker goes so far as to say, “being trapped behind a slower vehicle is one of the biggest triggers for road rage.” A Motortrend Magazine survey suggests its the single most annoying habit of other motorists—even topping texters and cell phone users.
The fact is, slow drivers can be dangerous as well. A recent study indicated a third of all drivers report having some sort of near miss, due to someone else traveling too slowly. 90 percent of drivers admit their stress goes up behind a slow driver, and six out of ten say they consider risky maneuvers to get around them. New Jersey is one state that already has a ‘failure to keep right’ law. Right now its a 50 dollar fine for a first offense.
But the New Jersey state police admits - despite the law - slow drivers are still a big problem. They cited more than 5,000 of them last year. So state senator Donald Norcross is pushing a bill that would boost the minimum fines up from 50 to $100 ... And the maximum up to $300.
The New Jersey senate transportation committee has approved the idea, and the full senate should get the bill within the next couple of weeks.
Part of the bill would earmark funding — to put up signs at the New Jersey border — to educate slow drivers from out of state. One can only hope the message will spread west.

New Rules Are in the Works to Prevent Distracted Driving
Monday, February 27, 2012 — Los Angeles, CA
New rules are in the works to prevent distracted driving — and they have nothing to do with your cell phone. By now you’ve heard a lot about the dangers of texting while driving and the merits of hands free devices. Many states have laws on the books, that carry heavy fines for using your phone with your hands while you are behind the wheel. But a new set of guidelines is in the works, that deals with every distraction in your car ... except for your cell phone.
The department of transportation (DOT) is worried about anything that can take your eyes off the road for more than a few seconds. That includes both your entertainment and navigation systems. The DOT is really going after the auto industry here. It wants car makers to reduce the complexity and task length required to work any device in your car, while it is in motion. They would do this by making sure every device requires only one hand to use, so you can keep your other hand on the wheel. They want to restrict any glances required to operate any device — to no longer than 2 seconds ... and limit the amount of instructional text on any device to just 30 characters. Transportation safety officials say they aren’t against such devices, in fact, GPS gizmos keep drivers from fiddling with paper maps. But they want the auto industry to lead the way in preventing distracted driving related accidents and injuries by rethinking how those devices operate. They plan to hold hearings around the country on the proposed guidelines. Then — after those rules worked out — they’ll start in on phase two, which will target the mobile phone industry and how to deal with drivers using their cell phones.
