Michigan state police vehicle test
(Dodge) Dodge is gearing up to chase Ford with its new Durango Pursuit police vehicle. It’s an upgrade of the existing Durango Special Services vehicle offered to law enforcement, but rated for high speed use like the top-selling Ford Explorer-based Interceptor Utility. Dodge credits a strong, unofficial performance at the Michigan State Police’s benchmark vehicle test event last year for earning the model a greenlight. The high performance SUV is equipped with a 360 hp 5.7-liter Hemi V8, all-wheel-drive and a two-speed transfer case for improved off-road capability. It also gets beefed up cooling and electrical systems to help it handled extra equipment required for police duty, along with a set of heavy duty brakes. The Durango also features Dodge’s ParkSense alert system that uses the parking sensors to warn its occupants if someone is sneaking up behind the vehicle, and a tri-zone climate control that Dodge is marketing as a benefit for K-9 unit use. … [Read more...] about The Dodge Durango Pursuit police vehicle is ready to chase some bad guys

Updated 7:54 am, Wednesday, March 28, 2018 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Four state senators want to prevent driverless vehicles from being tested in Minnesota until their developers can prove they're safe. Republican Sen. Jim Abeler says the death of a woman who was struck by a self-driving vehicle in Tempe, Arizona last week confirmed his concerns about the technology. Minnesota Public Radio says Abeler and three other senators introduced a bill Tuesday that would ban the automated driving tests. Abeler says he doesn't expect the legislation to pass this year, but he wants to start the debate. On Monday, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey suspended Uber's self-driving vehicle tests because of the fatal crash. The ride-hailing service is also facing new scrutiny in California if it wants to continue to test the technology. Its permit there expired Saturday. ___ Local Channel Now Playing: Now Playing LaMarcus Aldridge Leaves Spurs' Game at Wizards With Knee Injury … [Read more...] about Bill bans driverless vehicle tests in Minnesota
