A rogue Suburban on 8 Mile ... what could possibly go wrong? Having a bad day? Unless you're the captain of a skyscraper-sized container ship recently freed from the Suez Canal, it could be worse. After all, nothing makes a day more lively than inadvertently sending your three-ton SUV into a busy three-lane road with nobody behind the wheel. That's exactly what happened yesterday in Detroit, and fortunately, nobody was hurt. For that matter, it appears damage from the unlikely incident was limited to just the SUV in question. It's a Chevrolet Suburban – a tenth-generation model as far as we can tell – and yes, an Instagram post from Jimmy Ellerbee captures the action as it unfolds. He was a bystander who apparently almost got hit by the errant Chevy, and while we sometimes scratch our heads at folks who record calamities but fail to offer help , we totally understand trepidation in this case. As such, we also understand some of the strong language that crops up in the … [Read more...] about See Driverless Chevy Suburban Turn Lazy Circles On Busy Detroit Street

In the future, a Zoom meeting might have actual zoom. And now, it's time for something completely different. But here's the thing: is an idea as wacky as cars made by big tech companies really that different? We know Apple has long talked about introducing its own car . And lest we forget the Sony Vision S concept that surprised us all in early 2020 by looking extremely production-ready. Are you afraid now? Don't be. Vanarama sent us this curious group of fictional renderings purely for the sake of imagining a goofy future and let's face it – we could all benefit from being a bit goofy right now. So with that in mind, suspend your disbelief if only for a minute or two, and imagine yourself riding in one of these strange tech-sourced autonomous machines. Some might be more fun than others. Heck, there's one we wouldn't mind spending time in right now. Zoom MeetUp For the record, this isn't the tech car we want to spend time in.

Amid activism around the world last year calling for greater racial equality in all areas of society, F1 pledged to improve diversity within the series as part of its ‘We Race As One’ campaign. As F1’s only black driver, Hamilton led the calls to improve diversity within what he called “a white-dominated sport”. A pre-race gesture took place in which drivers were allowed to take a knee or show their support for the End Racism campaign in another way, while teams ran with anti-racism messaging on their cars. F1 has announced that improving diversity will be at the core of its revised We Race As One campaign in 2021, revealing plans to help improve minority representation across motorsport as a whole. F1 drivers met with series CEO and president Stefano Domenicali before testing in Bahrain last week to discuss plans for 2021, including arrangements for the pre-race messaging.

No serious injuries resulted from this scary scene. As far as accidents go, this one could've been much worse. As it is, the video above has a slightly humorous vibe about it. We mean no disrespect to those involved – seeing a large tram barrelling towards you when you have no place to go is certainly frightening. Thankfully, the saga has a sedate ending, or at least, as sedate as you can get in such a situation. The incident occurred on March 16 in Iași, the second-largest city in Romania. As the video shows, traffic was stopped at a busy intersection waiting for the light to turn green. The errant electric tram enters frame from the right, not going fast but clearly not slowing down for the mess of traffic ahead of it. A small hatchback takes the first hit, and it's a pretty hard one at that. According to adevarul.ro , one person went to the hospital with injuries. We don't know if it was an occupant of that car, but it's the likely candidate. Sometimes, There's Nothing … [Read more...] about Tram Loses Brakes In Romania, Turns Street Into Bumper Car Arena
