The cameras are very questionable from a safety standpoint because now people don't know how to behave when coming to a stop.
The problem is not that people don't know how to behave, it's that they've been doing it wrong since the day they passed their driver's test and stopped caring, and now cameras are catching them in the act. I'm all for including a copy of the page in the driver's manual that states what you are SUPPOSED to do in this scenario.
When you get to a red light... stop. It's not a yield sign, it's a red light. Stop, then turn right if it's safe. There is no county in the US where a rolling turn is acceptable, it's just the the cops don't bother ticketing over such a minor infraction. Doesn't make it legal though...
So... creation of greenhouse gasses is not pollution?
According to SCOTUS, it isn't, under the existing laws of the US.
And I doubt Congress would change that anytime soon. Until then, the EPA only gets to regulate CO2 coming from facilities it already regulates under existing laws.
Well then Congress shouldn't give them that power? That was the court's finding, that Congress had already authorized the EPA to regulate any gases produced at a plant that also produces named pollutants. So CO2 gets lumped in with the rest under their blanket authority over existing polluters. Which is why they struck down the ability to expand their authority to non-polluting entities. It was outside their existing jurisdiction.
Congress does that a lot, authorizes blanket authority, and then bitches when it gets exercised. It's like they don't read the bills they pass or something...
I know it is Slashdot and the summary is misleading about it "adding 100kg over a Tesla battery" but if you actually read the article you would learn that the idea is not to replace the existing Li-ion battery but to have this as well as a reserve. As you point out most people only drive short trips for which a Li-ion battery is well suited. This is just to provide a power for long distance driving.
Or, you know, if people would just actually read the summary, which states that the Li-ion battery would still be retained for short-range trips...
I'm sure I could have worded the 100kg bit better to state that the 100kg is IN ADDITION TO the existing weight of the Li-ion battery... but I guess
And if I type in Winnipeg (75% of the pop of all of SK), it says there's no results available?
Didnt apple make a big fuss about google using the term "appstore"? so google changes the name to "googleplay" Now Apple decides to use the term "carplay"??? Let me guess, now a new lawsuit on google for using the word "play"
Can't argue you could confuse an "appstore" style online software download site with a car navigation system though. Apple at least had a smidgen of a legal argument over "appstore".
Mhh how about Apple changing the iPhone connector once more? Yehaaaw your Mercedes is now obsolete lol. Let's do it, "it's good for the economy" (TM).
Depends how they sync. If it's over USB, there are adapters. If it's over Bluetooth... it should still work.
As opposed to every other navigation system, some of which even make you use a mouse-type controller on the dash to browse through the myriad of available controls.
