Automotive Dealers in New York Trying to Make It Illegal to Register a Tesla

New bill put aside until January

Tesla Motors has been fighting in multiple states to gain the right to have its own factory owned dealerships. The problem for Tesla is that most states have laws against that and Tesla has been trying to get laws rewritten. That doesn't set well with established dealerships in those states, including Texas and New York among others.

A pair of bills has been introduced by the New York State Legislature that are backed by the New York State automotive dealers Association that would make it illegal to license or renew licenses for Tesla stores within New York. The bills would make it impossible for residents of the state to purchase a vehicle not sold by an independently owned a third-party. In other words, the bill would ban any vehicle not purchased from the dealer.

The bill was set aside by the New York State assembly on Friday night and won't be looked at again until January when the assembly reconvenes. Tesla is currently the only automotive manufacturer that sells cars directly to consumers and doesn't use franchised dealers.

Ford Offers to License Its Police “Surveillance Mode” Camera Tech to Other Cop-Car Makers

Sep 19 2014 9:08pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We’ve sat in parking lots, bored, and switched on the backup camera feed to watch who’s behind us. Now Ford has brought this idea to its logical and safety-oriented conclusion for its Police Interceptor models: If someone walks too close to the rear, the parking sensors beep, the doors lock, and the windows roll up. Ford calls this trick “Surveillance Mode” and bills it as “a first line of defense from potential assailants”; the automaker and its partner are no ...
