Honda is still spreading the word about an opportunity you have to share the fastest seat in sports with Mario Andretti. That’s right, you could go for a ride with Mr. Andretti and all you have to do is go to ShopHonda.com.
In an effort to show people how much they need this speed, Honda has stepped up its Speed Patrol efforts, giving people citations for being slow due to “concerned amazement” and “indecisiveness” when choosing a pastry at a coffee shop (and, seriously, who doesn’t get annoyed by that?).

Toyota announced it is recalling more than 800,000 vehicles because…are you ready for it?…of spiders.
Not it’s not a bad horror movie. It’s the latest recall of the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, and Venza from the 2012 and 2013 model years. The recall involves airbags that could deploy unnecessarily.
According to this article, “The actual risk of airbag deployment comes from blockage of the air conditioner condenser drainage tubes. By building webs in those mini-waterspouts, spiders prevent condensation from being channeled away from delicate components. When that water hits delicate electronics like the airbag sensor, it can cause a short, which in turn can trigger the airbag warning light — or cause the driver’s side airbag to deploy.”
There have been three injuries and 35 warning lights have been reported.
Almost every parent knows they are supposed to use a car seat.
Unfortunately, according to this New York Times article, almost every parent isn’t installing the car seat correctly, which greatly decreases it’s effectiveness. In fact, about 75 percent of parents aren’t installing them correctly.
“About three of every four car seats are installed improperly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In some communities that lack safety checks or education programs, the figure is even higher.
“Automobile crashes remain the leading cause of death for children 13 and younger, according to federal regulators. A large number of the fatalities involve children in car seats.”
The issue isn’t simple between differences in cars and differences in car seats, so naturally parents get confused. There are many community programs to help parents ensure car seats are installed properly, but most of checking falls on local fire and police departments.
Be sure your child’s car seat is installed properly; visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website or even stop by your local fire or police department.
