Roadside Etiquette: Hugs, not Horns I woke up with a nasty cold the other day, and had a hard time getting out of bed and to the office.

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 26th, 2007 2:59pm

I am so happy and excited to report that the House Energy and Commerce Committee, on a voice vote, passed a bill that would require federal regulators to consider ways of diminishing blind zones in large SUVs and pickups, prevent vehicles from rolling away and making power windows safer.
