Recommended Posts

New Year's Eve is, as all holidays are in the period between becoming an adult and when kids come to the picture, a reason to get wasted.

Crashes on New Year’s

Snopes.com pointed out that August 3 is a bad day for crashes. In fact, from 1986 to 2002, there were 2,413 crash deaths on August 3 compared to 2,411 for Jan 1 in that period. That means, according to the info from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that New Year’s Eve and day are not really the worst days on the road for crash deaths.

July 3 and July 4 are much worse, with and 2,534 and 2,743 crash fatalities, respectively, in that period.

Pedestrian deaths due to crashes are much higher on New Year’s day though. The worst day of the year was January 1 during that time with 410 deaths, followed closely by Halloween at 401 fatalities during those years.

AAA wants to remind every person

AAA has asked that everyone who is going to drink alcohol should get a taxi or ask for a ride thinking about accidents on New Year’s involving alcohol are much higher than any other time of year, according to AutoGuide.

According to the New York Times, more crashes on New Year’s actually involve alcohol than any other time. Between 2004 and 2009, IIHS data showed half of all accidents on New Year’s had drivers with a blood alcohol level over 0.08 percent. That number is only 40 percent on St. Patrick’s Day and 40 percent on July 4.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found in an examination of Dec. 31 to January 5 2009, alone, 40 percent of the 468 fatal crashes involved an impaired driver.

Get a free cab

There are a variety of free cab programs accessible in cities for New Year’s because so many cities are worried about accident fatalities. This the best way to save lives and cash; maybe the city in your area is willing to cover your cab fare on the night to keep you out of the driver’s seat.

It is not like you will pay the same for a cab as you would for a payment on an automobile from Michael's Toyota of Bellevue.

It surely pays to be responsible and pay the cab fare anyway. If you get caught with a DUI or with vehicular manslaughter charges, you will need cash to pay a lawyer anyway.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
