BMW has been providing the safety cars for the MotoGP series for 16 years now, but this latest M4 outfitted for duty also packs an innovative water injection system to optimize combustion that could see implementation on production models in the near future.
Motorists in England have one more way to worry about getting stopped by the police this spring. The cops are using an unmarked semi to look down on drivers and check for any offenses, like using a cell phone or texting.
Lexus may not be ready just yet to enter Australia's highly competitive V8 Supercars series, but it appears to be paving the way this year by providing an RC F to act as a safety car, an IS 350 F Sport as a medical car and a GS 350 F Sport as a support vehicle.
Notes From A Week With The 2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit
In a sort of Let's Be Cops moment, Seyth Miersma and I spend a week with the 2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit to see what it's like to be a civilian behind the wheel of a police cruiser. Here's what we learned.
A police officer in Florida is lucky to be alive after suffering serious injuries during a traffic stop in Florida. He pulled a vehicle over because the female driver was suspected of being under the influence. However, after a few questions, the woman sped away briefly trapping the officer in the vehicle and running over the officer's foot.
The four occupants of a minivan in Michigan were in for a terrifying ride early in the morning on January 7. Their minivan got lodged under the back of a semi's trailer, and the vehicle was drug 16 miles along Interstate 75. During that time, the driver was on the phone with 911 but couldn't exactly say where the stricken van was because of the snowy conditions.
Police in Ohio were confused after a man involved in an early morning car accident couldn't be found. Six hours later, he turned up inside the vehicle at the nearby tow yard where the vehicle was taken. It's not clear whether responders missed the injured man or if he returned to the vehicle at some point.
