According to KidsAndCars.org and the CDC, children are more than four times as likely to be killed by a car while trick-or-treating on Halloween night than at any other time of the year, and two-thirds of Halloween highway fatalities are alcohol related.
Halloween is a dangerous night, but it doesn't have to be that way if you follow some simple safety tips.
If your car gets swarmed by zombies, would you know what to do? While that question may seem far-fetched, Halloween car safety is an integral part of ensuring every little vampire and mummy gets home safely after trick-or-treating.
Chevrolet and OnStar are sharing Halloween safety tips and three “Hey, they could happen!” OnStar calls for encounters with monsters and other creepy characters.
So, you want to sell your used car? Whether you’re posting your used car on Craigslist or through a more commercial used-car service, outlets to sell your used car online are easy to find.
But you can easily ruin your chances for success if you choose bad photos. It doesn't matter how great your car actually looks in real life, if you want to attract a buyer for your car, you need to ensure your photos don’t look like these.
I’ve been in the automotive industry for more than 25 years and have driven many cars at media events all across the country. From my Los Angeles home base, I’ve driven through much of California, and into Nevada and Arizona, but I’ve never actually taken a cross-country road trip in my own car. After some ribbing from a friend, who in those same 25 years has driven throughout most of the US, we decided it was time for me to undertake my first substantial multi-state driving adventure.
I’ve worn Ford’s “Drunk Suit,” and let me tell you this: It totally works. It didn’t seem like it would be so difficult when Ford gave me an opportunity to wear the funny-looking goggles and weights, but the lesson I learned was effective. If you've never been stumbling drunk, Ford's "Drunk Suit" will show you what it feels like.
A group of Los Angeles area bloggers were invited for an educational lunch and an opportunity to learn more about Ford’s “Drunk Suit.” While we were gathered, we also learned a bit about Ford’s “Driving Skills for Life” (DSFL) program, which educates teen drivers on the various hazards of operating a vehicle while distracted or impaired. Here’s an interesting factoid we learned from Officer Baldonado, the California Highway Patrolman who led our lunch: Did you know that in many states, ANY amount of alcohol in a teen’s blood system is enough to earn them a citation for driving under the influence?
Chevrolet teamed up with film director Spike Lee to create an ad spot starring teen athlete Mo’Ne Davis, which aired Tuesday during the first game of the World Series. Davis is a role model to an untold amount of girls all over the United States, but she’s a reminder to all of us that anything is possible.
The 13-year-old athlete and her 70-mile per hour fastball wowed America this summer. Many people know about her on-field accomplishments, but her story off the field celebrates life’s possibilities not only for herself, but also for millions of girls like her.
It’s back to school time. Learning is in full swing on campus when the bell rings. And after hours, there’s a full slate of extracurricular activities. Unfortunately, with the state of educational backing in many districts, only the essentials get funded. Many programs could be at risk. That’s why outside resources are vitally important. In that spirit this last September, Buick started a full-scale initiative to help local high schools across the country raise money for after-class programs.
Forget hot-wiring. As new technology makes it harder to steal cars the old-fashioned way, today’s thieves are using more sophisticated “white-collar” methods to get their hands on a set of wheels, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).
The NICB and its law enforcement partners report a growing number of these cases which, in legal terms, constitute financial fraud. Therefore, these stolen vehicles are not counted as auto thefts -- which may partially account for the steady decline in auto theft crime statistics over the past two decades.
Hosted by Drew Carey and broadcast weekdays (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT) on the CBS Television Network, this year's “The Price is Right” Dream Car Week will also feature special guest models Matthew Atkinson and Hunter King from “The Young And The Restless” and Karla Mosley from “The Bold And The Beautiful.”
