System uses existing sensors to protect officers from attack

Ford has announced that the technology is available in its Ford Police Interceptor sedan and SUVs. The new technology is designed to help officers minimize the risk of perpetrators sneaking up behind their vehicle, especially at night. The technology is called surveillance mode and uses existing Ford driver-assist technologies.

The surveillance mode uses the backup camera, cross traffic alert, and reverse park assist features to give police officers additional situational awareness. Officers can activate the system when the vehicle is in part and centers in the rear of the car and the backup camera continually monitor the rear of the cruiser.

Officers are able to turn off the surveillance mode technology when in urban settings where the alarm would be going off constantly. “I can tell you from personal experience at night that officer security is a critical concern,” says Randy Freiburger. “Unfortunately, there are people with bad intentions who sneak up on police officers. This system builds upon the Ford Police Interceptor DNA that puts safety and security at the top of the list.”

Motor Mouth: Shivering through the last ride of the year

Oct 31 2014 5:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The last ride is always the best of the season. July and August are long gone, the dog days of summer barely a memory thanks to autumn’s constantly threatening skies. Oh, it’s still possible to putter around if you don enough woolies for an arctic expedition. Or, if you’ve got a fully-faired land yacht like a Gold Wing or a BMW, you can, if you absolutely insist, connect two distant destinations. Nonetheless, if you’re anything like me, the chang ...

The time you won your town the race We chaired you through the market place; Man and boy stood cheering by, And home we brought you, shoulder-high. -A.E. Housman, To An Athlete Dying Young “Deep Roots, Greater Heights,” says the sign welcoming travellers to the city of Maple Ridge. All six lanes of the Lougheed Highway are thronged with traffic on this wet, colourless day on the West Coast. The sky is the colour of bunched damp newsprint; the road is rain-slicked and dull.

The 2015 Lexus CT 200h is both the most affordable and the smallest model in the lineup of Toyota's luxury brand. It's a five-door compact hatchback--no sedan is available--and it comes solely as a hybrid-electric vehicle. That puts it in a category of one: It's the only luxury hybrid hatchback sold in the U.S. But as a Lexus, the.. ...
