    6. Canadian Auto Dealers Seek Managed ICE Phaseout

      OTTAWA – The Canadian automobile sector has called on the country’s provinces to better coordinate efforts to increase demand for electric vehicles. This follows the Québec government announcing a ban on local sales of new combustion-driven light vehicles from 2035.

      While the ban would not apply to most commercial vehicles and used-auto sales, and hybrid sales and use might still be allowed, Brian Kingston, the new president and CEO of the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Assn., fears this policy might not achieve its goal of promoting EV sales: “You need a plan, not a ban,” he tells Wards.

      “Democrats may be more likely to buy a vehicle” because they’re elated that Democrat Joe Biden is President-elect, he says, even though incumbent Donald Trump has yet to concede.

    13. Winter tires could save your life – don’t listen to the truthers

      If haven’t got your winter tires on now, you may have to wait a while. Thanks to COVID-19, there could be a decrease in supply. Production slowed down once lockdowns went into effect last spring. Plus, closures meant some drivers couldn’t visit mechanics and spent the summer driving on their winter tires; now, those tires will need to be replaced. In the last few weeks, there has been a rush to get winter tires put on.

    21. 2019 U.S. Traffic Deaths Lowest Since 2014, but 2020 Numbers Aren't Looking Good

      In hard numbers, 2020 looks pretty good so far compared to 2019. The number of people who have died in motor vehicle traffic crashes was down from 16,988 in 2019 to 16,650 in 2020, a decrease of 2 percent. The trouble with relying on just one number is that those deaths hide the massive societal changes the world went through this spring (and is still going through) with the coronavirus.

      When you factor in an important aspect of that change, vehicle miles traveled (VMT), you actually see that more people died this year, on average, than last year. That's because VMT was down a dramatic 16.6 percent (or 264.2 billion miles) in the first six months of 2020, which pushed up the fatality rate per 100 million VMT, a metric the NHTSA uses to more accurately compare vehicle and road safety over time.
