Just as the man riding a bicycle while smoking a cigarette claims he’s getting exercise, drivers who have terrible habits say they're good drivers, according to a survey commissioned by Ford. A study of more than 2500 U.S. drivers found that 99 percent of them think they’re good drivers, even though 76 percent eat or drink while driving, 53 percent talk on handheld cell phones, and 37 percent drive when they’re too tired. As a result, 57 percent of these “good” drivers have had an accident or close call with a vehicle in their blind spot, 48 percent have hit or almost hit something while backing out of a parking space, and 38 percent avoid parallel parking. Makes you wonder how bad the bad drivers are.
The Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the governing body of world motorsport, is gearing up for a new racing series for electric cars, with the first race scheduled for 2014. The FIA calls the new Formula E class "a vision for the future of the motor industry over the coming decades" and plans to hold races on city-center tracks. One company preparing an electric racer is Drayson Racing Technologies, which says it can build a car that goes 200 mph and 0-60 in 3 seconds. But the same problems that limit the sales of electric cars, including long recharge times, affect e-racers, so instead of swapping batteries in pit stops, teams will just roll out a second, fully charged car.

The video clearly shows a shoe being thrown on the track in front of race leader Patrick, who ran over it, felt her steering go bad, subsequently pitted for a quick repair, but eventually finished in 27th place.
Cadillac, not satisfied with being a legendary luxury-car brand, wants to be the best-selling luxury car, too. To that end the company is introducing or updating 10 new models over the next three years. The goal is to sell 24,500 cars per month.
In the market for a full-size Chevrolet or GMC pickup? You may want to wait until the end of the year. Poor sales and a growing inventory could result in the best prices in years. In fact, a drop in the price of GM-brand trucks could even spark a price war among the Detroit Big Three, so leave that down payment in the piggy bank for a while.
