When a vehicle accumulates five or more parking violations that have been appropriately filed with the Clerk in the Municipal Count, it may be subject to impoundment and /or immobilization by the authorities. The process of impoundment or immobilization may be conducted even if the car is legally parked at that time. The owner will be liable for the fees and impound charges. For the vehicle to be released, the owner must pay all fines and penalties and present the vehicle title. The maximum required bond to be posted for release is $1,000. When parking-related penalties remain unpaid, the appropriate agency such as the parking violations bureau, joint violations bureau, or traffic violations department involved may notify the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

On July 5, 2016 an article titled ‘US Auto Fuel Economy Rating Slips in June’ composed by Paul Ausick explained the following: “The average fuel-economy rating for newer cars sold in the US for June 2016 was 25.3 MPG, down 0.1 mpg compared with the month of May . For all  2015, the overall average fuel-economy rating for new vehicles sold was 25.3 mpg.

While the window paper average is 5.2 mpg higher than when the information were first gathered, the average is still 0.5 mpg below its all-time high of 25.8 mpg set in August 2014. When gas prices started falling in the US, consumers purchased more light trucks, SUVs and crossovers, which get lower mpg ratings and contribute to the low average. The information are based on the average sales-weighted fuel-efficiency rating printed on a newer car’s window sticker and is compiled by Michael Sivak & Brandon Schoettle of the University of Michigan’s Transportation  Institute.

The sales-weighted unadjusted Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) efficiency rating averaged 31.7 MPG in May, up 0.4 mpg month over month and an improvement of 7.0 mpg since October 2007. These numeric values aren’t clearly comparable to the  ratings because these are adjusted by the EPA & used to gauge the window-sticker ratings. Overall vehicle sales in the month of June rose 2.5% 1.51M units. For the year to date, sales are up 1.5% versus  2015. On a seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) scale, the sum fell from 17.46M units in May to 16.68M units in June. In June 2015 the SAAR came in at 17.01 million units.” The full article is available at this link:  http://247wallst.com/autos/2016/07/05/us-auto-fuel-economy-rating-slips-in-june/

Were you aware that green companies like Columbus Cash 4 Cars are great for the environment and also create green job opportunities?

On June 3, 2016 Lindsey Smith posted a story on The Verge titled ‘Wall Street loans Uber $1 billion to offer subprime auto leases’ with the following information: “Uber, in efforts to appease its drivers, has obtained a $1B loan in an agreement with Goldman Sachs to for new vehicle leases for drivers. The now giant reide-share, Xchange Leasing, LLC, was the recipient of the massive loan, beginning in July 2015. Xchange allows sub-prime leases to those who drive for Uber, but have subpar credit. Uber’s big Vehicle Solutions program, has developed after the organization realized that many drivers had vehicles that were too old, too small, or didn’t meet standards in some ways. In addition, the program offers drivers discounts with specific auto manufacturers, more traditional financing, as well as rental.

The major selling point is its flexibility. To obtain the lease, drivers submit a $250 deposit; and payments on a weekly basis — which average around $125+— are deducted directly from driver paychecks. Unlike most sub-prime leases, which often have harsh terms, they offer unlimited mileage & regular maintenance such as oil changes, tire rotations, and filter replacements. Also, drivers can return the cars with (2) weeks’ notice at any time 30 days after their 1st payment. When the lease expires, either through early termination or at the end of the 36 month terms, drivers owe a final $250. A driver’s credit score won’t be impacted by early termination; on the flipside, leases do not help to build a person’s credit, even if payments are made properly.

Despite the flexibility, critics note the higher cost associated with the leases. If drivers keep the cars for the 3-year term, they will have spent thousands at a higher purchase price. Higher costs are the norm with subprime leases & Xchange’s terms are similar. These leases are often the lone option for those who are a credit risk. The big plans of expanding are not without risk, especially when leasing to people with poor credit. The agreement between Xchange and its lenders loans Xchange $1B up front, at a fixed interest %, shifting some of the risk to investors. Uber has no legal ties under the agreement. In addition to Goldman, financiers include Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan, and more.” The full story is available here.

Today we examine the ever-expanding use of plastics and scrap or recycled plastic in auto recycling.

“Auto recyclers have been focusing on the recycling of some car components for many years, particularly steel. Conversely, auto plastic recycling is still in its infancy, since recycling of some plastics and polymer composite-based components can provide challenges in terms of cost, technology required and the very makeup of plastics. Further strides are being made to recycle plastics, however, especially post-industrial scrap, and use recycled plastic materials in car components as auto companies have made strong pledges to reduce waste and use of recycled materials in new vehicles. The overall quality of recycled bales & materials have greatly improved recently, increasing the ability of engineering to use recycled plastic toward production of new components. As segment of our focus of pursuing zero waste, SPI works to leverage the strength throughout the supply chain—from resin suppliers & equipment makers to processors, brand owners & recyclers—by recognizing challenges to recycling across the variety of plastic packaging and products. In the transportation end markets, like automobiles, SPI is beginning projects to help find opportunities for both recycling suitable plastic from automobiles that have reached the end of their useful life, as well as using recycled content to producing new cars & components.

Plastics and particularly recycled plastics are playing a state-of-the-art and growing role in auto makers everywhere. The American Chemistry Councils Plastics Division says plastics make up about 50% of a modern automobile’s volume, but only a mere 10% of its weight. Engineering and design teams seeking cost & weight savings are accepting technological advancements in plastic components for their distinctive properties & flexibility. The paramount catalyst for acceptance of plastics in car designs is surpassing the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards & assisting in boosting a vehicle’s fuel economy. The relative volume of plastics in automobiles is increasing, but with the industry focus on cost reduction, and the recent dip in oil & natural gas values, the market dynamics of using virgin resins vs. recycled materials is shifting. Thus, it is important for automakers to acknowledge the value of using recycled content, in both material properties and the environmental benefits. The true value of recycled material far exceeds any potential savings in cost. The auto industry recognizes trends & purchasing habits of consumers who want firms & products to be environmentally sound. Both domestic and foreign auto makers have been leaders in the green movement, in development of lighter, safer vehicles utilizing alternative fuels. Also, in minimizing overall waste & recycling materials like plastic.” The full study is available at www.plasticsmarketwatch.org
