Today I watched a great clip from Howard Elmer, a contributor to my favourite car television show; MOTORING TV. Motoring TV is on TSN and its a great show about cars, and the people who drive them.
In this clip, Elmer describes how the Insurance Industry is trying to again cap your benefits because the cost of insurance in Ontario is simply too high. There’s also talk about insurance fraud. But, based on my experience, the fraud you see if far less than insurers insist exists, and is a GTA phenomenon. If have yet to see any sort of frauds outside the GTA (Toronto, Vaughan, Mississauga, Brampton). I have yet to sniff or even suspect auto insurance fraud akin to what might exist in Toronto. In any event, this is a great video clip. Here’s the link to the clip. I couldn’t have said it any better myself. Well done Howard.
Subaru also launched its Eyesight Technology. Basically, what it’s supposed to do is stop your car automatically if you’re about to hit somebody, or rear end another person or vehicle. It completely disengages the throttle and activates the brakes.
Sounds pretty cool. I know that Mercedes Benz and BMW has been toying with this technology. Seeing it in play on a Subaru is very progressive of that car company. Well done. If this new technology prevents one car accident, or one catastrophic injury, or one life, then it’s done its job. Always great to see these new advances in car technology.
