3 Top Reasons People Get Pulled Over

Want to avoid getting pulled over and ticketed? It’s easy, right? Follow the laws of the road. Just in case you need some reminding, here are some of the top reasons people get pulled over…

Equipment violations

Unlike speeding, equipment violations can happen simply from neglect. That’s why it’s a good idea to give your ride a once over every once in a while. According to Edmunds.com, things like expired tags and burned-out headlights cause the most citations for equipment violations.

Driving Like A Madman

This comes in a lot of forms. Maybe you make improper lane changes or roll through a stop sign, maybe you make U-turns whenever you feel like it. The bottom line is you drive like you are the only one on the road. This is definitely going to get you cited.

Speeding

But everybody does it, right? If everyone drove their convertibles off of the Grand Canyon like Thelma and Louise, would you do it too? The truth is that it’s not speeding per se, it’s excessive speeding that is going to get you in trouble. Going a few miles over the speed limit usually won’t catch the attention of our men and women in blue but just know that it can.

Save your money, save your time. Drive predictably and follow all traffic laws in a vehicle that is properly maintained.

Latest Innovations From Ford Focus On Efficiency

Fortune magazine recently shared some wise words from Henry Ford. The inventor and business mogul said way back in 1923, “Be ready to revise any system, scrap any method, abandon any theory, if the success of the job requires it.”

The following are some innovations from Ford that we’ve seen in just the last few years…

PTWA

Plasma transferred wire arc process is an engine technology that allows Ford to forego the heavy, cast-iron liners in its aluminum engine. The result is an engine that six pounds lighter. That is an enormous improvement.

Micromill

Originally created by Alcoa, Micromill is an innovative type of aluminum. Traditionally, aluminum was a light metal but prone to easy shaping. Not Micromill. It’s lightweight and strong. Ford embraced the new material and used it in its award-winning 2016 Ford F-150.

Manufacturing Process

It’s not the vehicles themselves that get all of the attention. Ford is consistently revising its manufacturing process as well. In fact, the Ford facility in Dearborn, MI has been revamped over the last decade, with the addition of “new robotics, stamping equipment, chemical and heat treatments, and an aluminum-recycling system.”

Today, the company that Ford started is taking his advice more than ever.
