Onthe basis of new allegations against Volkswagen was the investigation of the newspaper Der Spiegel. The journalists found out that at least with 2010 and 2015, under the brand Volkswagen in Europe and North America has sold 6 700 vehicles with “unknown status design”. This means that these machines have not passed the proper licensing are not produced commercially and were to be disposed of after all the tests and demonstrations. We are talking about test mules, pre-production samples and sokurah.

However, instead of Volkswagen secretly sold these machines under the guise of both new and used models. In this part of the car can be legalized, pre-certifying their differences from the production — for some of the difference lies in the software, for others in the structural features associated including security.

Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW were suspected of collusion

Now the manufacturer is forced to recall. In Volkswagen say they do not know of any accidents, injuries or deaths associated with the test cars, and “deeply regret the deception.” But the reputation of the company, however, suffered more damage after the great diesel scandal.

Moreover, the investigation of fraud once the largest automaker of Germany has joined the Prosecutor’s office and the Ministry of transport is already considering rassmatrivajut the issue of a major penalty. We should also expect the next wave of lawsuits — another blunder Volkswagen angered not only consumers and congruency, but dealers of the brand.

Cameras commit violations, you can manage traffic, according to deputies.Khlynov Alexander

To extend the scope of cameras meant for traffic violations, proposed a member of the Duma Committee on transport and building Alexander Vassiliev. In his opinion, these cameras can also capture emerging congestion, which can then be diluted with remotely managed traffic lights.

“It is more important to collect the data allowed cameras to regulate traffic in the city, optimizing flows to reduce the length of the tubes. Cameras recorded the jams and had a relationship with the traffic light system. Center for organization of traffic (TSODD) Moscow wanted to do it with drones”, — quotes the words Vasilyeva AGN “Moscow”.

The MP spoke out in support of new initiatives by TMS to create a program through which the camera can determine not only the license plate of the cars, but also their brand. This will allow to expose those offenders who alter characters on license plates to avoid fines for violations of traffic regulations. Innovation should make life and car thieves.

“Errors should be less after this decision. Most importantly, these cameras do not violate the right to privacy of citizens. So they will see who and who where the road turned, and the number of families in Moscow will be less. I think it is not the effect which was intended by the builders of the neural network”, — said Alexander Vasiliev.

Recall that automatic detection of car brands cameras should start in Moscow in the end of this year.

  • The neural network, which will begin work after December 25, will be able to determine the make and model of vehicles.
  • Scientists found a simple way to get rid of traffic jams.

The traffic police cited statistics of accidents in Russia, according to which novice drivers are less likely to get into an accident.Khlynov Alexander

In the state traffic Inspectorate have estimated that this year the drivers, whose experience is less than two years, became responsible 8700 accidents, while in 2017 they occurred 10 200 accidents, and in 2016 — 11 200.

The most common cause of accidents committed through the fault of novice drivers is a violation of the rules of order of vehicles at the intersection. This is 26% of an accident, gives statistics of the traffic police to the publication “Kommersant”. On the second place among the most frequent causes of accidents are non — compliance of the race, which happens 14% of accidents involving newcomers. Closes the top three major causes of traffic accidents violation of rules of location of vehicles on the roadway. This was the reason 11% of the accidents.

Driving schools can rely on this statistic in the training of potential drivers and to focus students on data errors to novice drivers they are not repeated.

  • The reason for reducing the number of accidents caused by novice drivers could be that the number of people receiving law declined significantly as class size in schools.
  • Meanwhile, Russia is preparing the reform of the training for a driving license, with some aspects of it, many do not agree.
