    BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police have identified a 15-year-old boy seen in a dashboard video as a person of interest in last week’s deadly encounter between a motorist and people cleaning windshields for cash at a downtown Baltimore intersection. The Baltimore Sun reports a dashboard camera video of last Thursday’s shooting shows what appears to be the teen shoot at Timothy Reynolds five times. The contents of the video were first reported by The Baltimore Banner. Baltimore Police spokesperson Lindsey Eldridge would not confirm details of the investigation, instead saying detectives are “still following active leads and the investigation is ongoing.” Eldridge also would not discuss the search for the person of interest. Reynolds,48, of Baltimore, was driving through an intersection near the city’s Inner Harbor when he had a heated interaction with so-called squeegee workers, parked his car and came back with a baseball bat, Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said earlier this week. He “swung the bat at one or more of those squeegee workers. In return, one of the squeegee workers pulled out a gun and fired,”...

    The 38-year-old mom who shot her two school-aged sons while they slept last week is now facing first-degree murder charges following the boys' death Friday, with cops revealing she planned the killings for more than a week. Philadelphia police said Tuesday that Trinh Nguyen acted premeditatedly when she carried out the killings of sons JT, 13, and Nelson, 9, last Monday, revealing she penned a note a week prior describing what she wanted done with the kids' ashes.   'Please call 911!' one unsettling message, obtained by the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, penned by Nguyen reads. 'My children are Dead in their bed.' Officials Monday also revealed Nguyen had left another signed, handwritten note inside the family home dated April 25 - seven days before the murder - stating what to do with her sons remains. The letter also instructed its recipient what to do with her own remains as well, confirming cops' previous suspicions that the mom had planned to take her own life once the deed was done. Nguyen then provided the address of the family home, in affluent Upper Makefield, where she...
    A small town police officer in South Carolina charged in the fatal on-duty shooting of a man after a five-minute car chase repeatedly told investigators and her boss the man had something in his hand, but she did not know what it was, according to dashboard camera footage. The camera also captured the shooting, showing Hemingway Police Officer Cassandra Dollard, working alone, slipped and fell in a muddy ditch as she approached the man’s car as he tried to get out of the passenger door. Dollard ordered him to stay in the car, then fired one shot at close range while still sitting as he got out, according to the dashboard camera footage released by state agents late Monday as part of a Freedom of Information Act request. “I’m trying to get up and I’m telling him don’t come out of the car and he kept coming on out, so, I fired one shot. But I thought I saw, for sure I saw something in his hands,” Dollard said in a phone call to her police chief about 50 minutes...
    WHEN a warning symbol flashes up on the dashboard as you're driving, your first reaction is probably to panic. And you wouldn't be alone as research revealed more than half of Brits aren't sure what most of the symbols actually mean. 9 Can you identify all the symbols that could flash up on your dashboard? A study by HPI found 59 per cent of drivers struggle to recognise what all the warning lights on their dash indicate. Worryingly, 96 per cent couldn't recognise a common brake issue light - potentially putting them in danger. A similar percentage didn't know when their diesel particle filter was showing a fault, and 93 per cent wouldn't know when they had a problem with their coolant. As car technology develops and more features are added, there's inevitably a higher chance something could go wrong. And with over 60 different icons telling you there could be an issue with your motor, it's important to have a good understanding of what your car is trying to say. We have broken down what all the symbols that...
    Meat Loaf probably wasn't going like a Bat out of Hell when he was recording the album of that name. (Paul Natkin/Getty Images and Honda) The late singer revealed to Motor Trend in 2016 that during the making of the classic LP, which included the epic romantic tragedy "Paradise By the Dashboard Light," he owned a Honda Civic that he drove back and forth from New York City to the recording studio upstate. The first-generation Honda Civic had a 52 hp engine. (Honda) "They knew who owned them - James Taylor owned one, Carly Simon owned one, I owned one," said. "There was only 18 of them in the country when I bought mine. And we were using it to drive back and forth to Woodstock, [producer] Jim Steinman and I, to do 'Bat Out of Hell.' We had just started recording it." The economy car was powered by a 52 hp engine and required about 15 seconds to accelerate to 60 mph and doesn't offer much room for the sort of activity depicted in the "Paradise" lyrics....
    FREMONT (AP) — Last August, Vince Patton was watching a YouTube video of a Tesla owner who had made a startling observation: Tesla drivers could now play a video game on their car’s touch-screen dashboard — while the vehicle is moving. Curious to see for himself, Patton drove his own 2021 Tesla Model 3 to an empty community college parking lot, activated a game called “Sky Force Reloaded” from a menu and did a few loops.

He tried Solitaire, too, and was able to activate that game while driving. Later, he found he could browse the internet while his car was moving. Patton, who loves his car and says he has nothing against Tesla, worries that drivers will play games and become dangerously distracted. “Somebody’s going to get killed,” he said. “It’s absolutely insane.” Vince Patton, a new...

    Q: My sympathies for the driver who was trying to de-escalate the road rage driver on Highway 101 near Morgan Hill. I had a similar terrifying incident. An angry truck driver confused me with another car (same color, year and make) that had cut him off, and I suddenly found myself the target of a 6-ton truck trying to slam me off the road and forcefully stopping in front of me on a busy highway. Thankfully, I was near a gas station exit so I fled the highway, stopped at the station and stayed locked in my car until the truck driver finally drove away. After that incident, I immediately installed a front and rear dash cam in my car. What are the laws around using dash cam video footage for police or insurance evidence, particularly when a road rage incident like this occurs? Susan Burnett, Capitola A: Video can be used as evidence. It, as well as interviews or any other factors involved, will be weighed by the courts in determining prosecution and might be used to corroborate or...

    (CNN)Mercedes has unveiled its largest and most luxurious electric car yet. The Mercedes EQS is the battery-powered equivalent of the Mercedes S-Class sedan, the brand's flagship model.Like the S-Class, the EQS is designed for roominess and comfort. With no need for a large engine, the EQS has a sloping hood, making it reminiscent of cab-forward designs that were at their most popular in the 1990s. It also has a more gently tapered back end. And that, Mercedes designers boast, has helped to make the EQS the most aerodynamically efficient factory-produced passenger car in the world.To help it slip through the air even more smoothly, the EQS's body automatically lowers slightly at speeds of more than 75 miles an hour, and then a little more at speeds of more than 100 miles an hour. The car can go about 480 miles on a charge, according to estimates using European testing standards. (Testing methods used by US agencies tend to yield lower range estimates.) The front "grille" of the Mercedes EQS is actually a solid dark panel with a pattern of three-dimensional...
    Technology invades even the most unsuspected areas of everyday life and cars do not pass without updating in line with the great advances that allow them to be much safer, but also more comfortable, practical and connected. From Android Auto to Car Play, Alexa and countless other driving assistants, Many modern vehicles can now be controlled from mobile phones and even by voice commands. But these functionalities that seem something typical of our present time have their origin decades ago in time, to the surprise of many. In fact, after KITT surprised on television with his robotic voice, he came to reality the Renault 25, a model that communicated with its driver through voice messages. In his time, the R25 was the most expensive, prestigious and largest vehicle of the French brand, which from 1983 to 1992 was produced at the Sandouville factory. In 1985 it came in second place in the Car of the Year awards in Europe.1 and was considered a super sports car in its time since it had an automatic transmission, a V6 Turbo engine...
    ALBEMARLE, N.C. (AP) — A pet boa constrictor that became stuck behind the dashboard of a car in North Carolina needed the help of some animal control officers to wriggle free. But the snake believed to measure about 5 feet in length was ultimately released unharmed from its owner's vehicle — after some car parts were removed. Officers with the Stanly County Animal Protective Services were dispatched Tuesday to free the snake after it became trapped, The Charlotte Observer reported. A photo shared by the agency on its Facebook page showed some pieces of the dashboard had been dismantled to reach the snake and let it slither out. County worker Jamie Parker, who helped in the rescue, joked on Facebook that the team “just talked nice” to the snake and it backed itself out. How the snake got into the dashboard is not known. Boa constrictors are a nonvenomous tropical snake capable of swallowing their prey whole. They can grow to 13 feet (4 meters) long and weigh more than 100 pounds (45 kilograms), according to National Geographic. Copyright 2021...

    (CNN)Automakers have, for years, been offering larger and larger touchscreens in vehicle dashboards. Ram trucks, for instance, come with 12-inch screens, measured diagonally, while the new Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV has a screen that measures an impressive 15.5-inches.Mercedes, however, has taken the trend to a whole new level. Its new MBUX Hyperscreen covers almost the entire dashboard in front of the driver and passenger. It can't even be measured diagonally because it isn't a rectangle. It's curved. Holes allow air vents to pass through. MBUX, which stands for Mercedes-Benz User Experience, is Mercedes' name for the touchscreen software in its cars. The Mercedes MBUX Hyperscreen curves outward at its ends, following the contours of the dashboard.All of that glass isn't actually a single interactive screen. There are three separate screens behind the large, dark glass giving the appearance of a single huge screen. One of the screens acts as the gauge cluster in front of the driver, one is in the usual central location within reach of both the passenger and driver, and there's one more in front of...
    TESLA cars in the US can now drive themselves without requiring assistance from a driver following a recent software update. Tesla last week released a beta, or test version, of what it calls a "Full Self Driving" upgrade to an undisclosed number of "expert, careful" drivers. 5View of a dashboard display in a Tesla with full self driving activatedCredit: YouTube/Tesla Raj The release prompted online posts by excited recipients who shared video snippets of their car driving autonomously on city streets at night. On YouTube, user Tesla Raj said the update caused the dashboard display to change "into a computerised graphic from the future" that showed what the car's onboard computer was seeing. During a Tesla earnings call on October 21, Tesla boss Elon Musk said the latest upgrade was planned to be widely released by the end of this year. The 49-year-old billionaire added that the system would become more robust as it collected more data. 5Tesla's AI-powered cars could already perform some functions autonomously, such as parking and joining highwaysCredit: Tesla [email protected] you mad man.

    Swedish car maker Volvo has patented a system that could allow customers to choose if they want the steering wheel in the middle of the car, or moved to the left or ride side of the vehicle. Sketches show a design that allows the wheel to be moved to three locations across the dashboard and also a moving gear selector, shifting front seats and pressure-sensitive pads to replace the conventional pedals.  Concept drawing were submitted by the manufacturer to the US Patent and Trademark Office last month and could - in theory - spell the end of brands having to produce separate versions of the same models in left- and right-hand drive for different markets.  ‹ Slide me › On the slide: Volvo has submitted a selection of concept drawings to patent the design of a sliding steering wheel system The sliding steering wheel design might sound like an odd move, but is aimed at appeasing owners of future automated vehicles. While self-driving cars are expected to be able to take over full responsibility of controlling the vehicle,...
