In February 26, 2017 edition of Auto News, Sharon Silke Carty posted a story of interest as follows: “Those making auto payments with that have poor credit are sometime subjected to surveillance from their auto loan lenders, who install GPS tracking devices and kill switches on the car to disable it if the owner fails to keep up with the payments on time. Now the FTC is taking a look at this exercise to see if the devices are a violation of consumer privacy or can be considered harassment from the banks. Credit Acceptance Corp., based in Southfield, Mich., says it is being investigated by the FTC involving its policies & practices for using the devices.

Bloomberg reported that another lender, DriveTime Auto, is also being looked into. DriveTime told Bloomberg it does not use kill switches, but the autos that it finances have GPS trackers already installed. These devices are being used increasingly as the pool of subprime auto loans increases. The Fed Reserve Bank of NY says that subprime auto loans are rising, along with an increase in delinquencies. About 6M people were 90 behind on their car payments at the close of 2016, according to a recent study by the bank. Devices such as kill switches & GPS tracking units help lenders lower losses when loans are unpaid by allowing  faster repossession according to Michael Benoit, partner at Hudson Cook, a law firm focused on consumer financial services.” The entire article is available at this link.

Patrick Healy of NBC Los Angeles informed us of the following auto related story: “Recently a Diamond Bar couple was victimized by brazen and quite speedy driveway thieves. Security camera footage shows two suspects jump out of an SUV, roll underneath a parked Honda CRV, remove components with precious metals and take off. The precious metals — including platinum & sometimes even gold are needed by a piece of emissions control equipment that has been standard equipment in vehicles since the 1970s — the catalytic converter.

Recycling the metals from each of these units can produce scrap value of up to $200, and has made converters a hot item for thieves. The victim named Katia discovered the theft later in the day when she started the vehicle’s engine – and heard a much louder exhaust system with the absence of the converter. The theft happened at 3:30AM; she heard from another resident nearby that half an hour later, thieves had then tried to remove the converter from another car, but he yelled, and they fled.

Both made incident reports with the LA County Sheriff’s Walnut Station; in many households garages are used for storage, and cars are parked out in the driveway. The driveway where the theft occurred was unlit, thus the security video didn’t show the faces of the culprits, or the vehicle’s license plate number. Since the theft, the couple installed a motion sensor light in the driveway. Katia and her neighbor both took their Hondas to the same garage, Vtec Auto Repair. Owner Oliver Lu says he sees many cars from which the catalytic converters were stolen. For Katia’s car, the insurance adjuster estimated the loss as exceeding $2,700. The insurance policy had comprehensive coverage, but the policy holder is still responsible for paying a deductible. The degree of difficulty in removing catalytic converters can vary a bit among different car models. In this Honda, the converter is fastened in place with five bolts that are easily accessed from underneath with a socket wrench. Others require that the exhaust pipe is severed and some separate the converter into (3) separate components, one of which is reachable only by opening the hood. The catalytic converter in a V6 model Honda is particularly well-protected, and is built into the manifold itself.” The complete story is available here.

Jerold Chinn posted an article titled ‘Residents reminded of risks of disposing used motor oil’ on sfbay.ca on July 8, 2016 with the following story: “San Francisco officials are retelling residents that discarding used motor oil isn’t safe for the local water system or our environment. It is illegal to dump used oil on the city streets or in the drains. At a press conference Katy Tang, a Supervisor with the Department of the Environment, said that people should recycle used motor oil at businesses such as Pennzoil 10-Min Oil Change. Those who bring in their used motor oil can receive forty cents for each gallon they bring in. These collection sites can accept up (5) gallons per visit. Residents only need to give provide their name when dropping off the oil.

Tang said in a statement that she recalls helping her dad change the oil to their vehicle when she was younger. The department is aggressively promoting a campaign targeting various communities to recycle used oil by placing signs in different languages including Chinese language billboards, municipal bus ads & web ads. Director of the Department of Environment Debbie Raphael, says that it is important to keep the SF Bay area clean of motor oil and to advise residents on how dispose the oil. The neighborhood based collection centers like Pennzoil make it simple and easy for residents to bring in their oil and leave feeling like they’ve done their part to protect the local environment. The city has twenty-three participating auto-related businesses that will take used motor oil, the department said in including (4) in the Sunset District. The department reports that these collection sites collected 27K gallons of oil. About 30% of the oil collected came from specifically the Sunset District. Anyone who attended the press conference was given a complimentary oil pan.” The full article is available at: https://sfbay.ca/2016/07/08/residents-reminded-of-risks-of-disposing-used-motor-oil/

In reviewing this article, a few thoughts come to mind. Virtually all adults (that have a brain) know that used oil should not be dumped on to the ground or in our drains. Some people may think it is OK to dispose of the used oil in with their trash—which is not true. The true issue is that those choosing to improperly dispose of hazardous oil are likely just lazy or the simply do not care. Those who are found violating these basic environmental laws need to be harshly made aware that we DO care about the issue. For someone who intentionally dumps used motor oil on to the ground or into drains, the punishment for a 1st offense should be something like a combination of an $800 fine and 24 hours of community service.

In the June 15, 2016 edition of Automotive News, Eric Newcomer posted a story titled ‘Uber, seeking to boost capital, plans to raise up to $2 billion’ with the following report: “Uber Technologies Inc.’s hearty appetite for capital is driving it toward the market for big debt. The ride-sharing company is seeking to raise $1-$2B in a loan, a person familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. Uber is working with Morgan Stanley & Barclays on the proposed deal, the person said.

Discussions are ongoing, and the plans could fall apart, said the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. Barclays, Morgan Stanley and Uber declined to comment. As Uber expands around the globe at a rapid pace, the San Francisco-based company is spending aggressively. In China now Uber has pledged to spend at least $1B to take on rival Didi Chuxing. Last month, Apple Inc. invested $1 billion in Didi. While Uber is losing money in China, the company said its business in the U.S. & Canada is good, even as it faces a price war at home with Lyft Inc.

Uber isn’t in danger of running out of money soon. After raising $3.5B from Saudi Arabia’s funds this month, Uber said it has more than $11B on its balance sheet, including cash and convertible debt. The amount doesn’t include the high-yield loan it’s seeking now. The leveraged debt talks were reported Tuesday by The Wall Street Journal. Earlier on Tuesday, Jeff Holden, the chief product officer at Uber, said the ride-hailing industry would change “when the money train stops.” In an interview at the Bloomberg Tech Conference in SF, Holden highlighted a “very distorted capital market.” He said: “When the tide goes out, we’ll see who makes it.” The full article is available here.

A May 18, 2016 article by Jim Hardy in the Mirror informed us of the following: “Feral cats need somewhere nice & warm and they think it’s safe but obviously it’s not. These kittens will stay with us at the sanctuary during the day and staff will take it in turn to take them at night. They apparently need feeding every (2) hours. The staff at the animal sanctuary spent time searching the recycling center for the kittens’ mother, but were unable to find her. Workers at ASM Auto Recycling in Thame, Oxfordshire, were about to crush a scrapped vehicle into a tiny metal cube.

Natalie Clark, the office admin at ASM, says each vehicle has to go through various checks before it is scrapped. They found the kittens in this instance just in time and brought them into the office, prior to notifying the sanctuary. The staff from the sanctuary praised ASM for their diligence in the rescue and thanked supporters for donations which pay for the abandoned animals. According to Iain Atkin without the donations, they would not have the necessary resources to help in these situations.” The complete article is available at this site: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/four-tiny-kittens-rescued-car-7997325

Abandoned Car Towing

In a May 18, 2016 article by Mark White in the News Journal titled ‘Police towing abandoned cars’, we were informed of the following: “The Williamsburg PD has begun towing abandoned vehicles and plan to continue doing so. Police Chief Bird says they’ve been getting complaints throughout the city, particularly on S. 3rd St., a really congested street. There is a large park and a library in that area. School buses are having difficulty time getting up the street. The junk cars had weeds growing up around them–had been there so long. Each of them had canceled registration, no auto insurance and expired tags.  One had concrete blocks behind the wheels; therefore, they decided to start enforce the abandoned vehicle law.

Bird acknowledged that people were upset that police didn’t knock on doors before towing them. Bird says after 21 years on the job that he can’t make everyone happy. It is a state law–not a city ordinance. Bird posted a copy of the state statute regarding vehicle abandonment on the police department’s Facebook page. The law states that a vehicle left for (3) consecutive days shall be assumed to be abandoned. Bird says that if it becomes an eyesore to the community then they will tow it. One comment on social media implied that the city is making money from this– which he disputes, saying they are trying to clean our streets up. Bird noted that he didn’t issue any citations on any of the vehicles that were towed, which he could have done under the law. With court costs plus the fines-it probably could have been over $160 but they chose not to do that.” The full article is available here.

So we have abandoned cars and abandoned cats. Glad to hear that the cats were rescued and also support the city for removing those abandoned vehicles. It seems that the people who have abandoned these old cars think that the community wants to see their junk vehicles cluttering up the streets!
