Keyless cars have a dangerous downside that has killed dozens of people

BMW

  • According to a New York Times report, there have been at least 28 deaths and 45 injuries caused by carbon monoxide emitted from vehicles with keyless ignitions since 2006.
  • Some of the deaths have resulted from drivers exiting their cars without realizing they’re running. 
  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed a federal regulation for warning systems in keyless vehicles in 2011, but the regulation was opposed by the auto industry and has yet to be implemented.
  • While automakers have installed warning systems into their keyless-ignition vehicles voluntarily, there is no universal standard among the systems.

Keyless cars have a dangerous downside. Sometimes, drivers mistakenly believe their cars are off after parking them, which can result in carbon monoxide filling their garages and homes.

Cadillac Gives CUE a Quiet Overhaul

It was a grimace I’ll never forget. It was 2013 and I had just driven our Four Seasons Cadillac ATS, a shining revelation of GM chassis tuning and steering feel, from Ann Arbor, Michigan to visit my family in Philadelphia. My brother was fascinated by the ATS and its true 3 Series-fighting chops. But by the end of my visit, he found the CUE infotainment system so maddeningly fussy and frustrating that he couldn’t wait for the ATS to leave. If not for CUE, he said, he would have seriously considered buying the spritely Caddy.

While it might be too little too late for my brother, who is now the proud owner of a Volkswagen Golf GTI, Cadillac has fully overhauled CUE. Critical updates to the system were rolled out quietly and without any big fanfare in CTS models that began arriving in showrooms in early

Snake slithers out of car’s air vent as Virginia woman is driving

Lora Goff drove down Main Street in downtown Warrenton, Virginia, on her lunch break from a nearby law firm when she heard a rattling sound.

The office manager looked down next to the steering wheel of her Cadillac SRX and saw a snake slithering out of the air vent. Trying to stay calm, she pulled off the road, jumped out of the SUV and dialed 911.

And like anyone these days who has a unique event unfold before them, she snapped a picture: “I thought, ‘Nobody’s going to believe this.’ “

When animal control arrived, the officer confessed that he, too, was scared of snakes.

“I said, ‘I’m in trouble now,’ ” Goff recalled of her Monday incident.

The snake, which she later estimated to be a garter snake that measured about 21/2-feet long, had gotten tangled in her phone cord charger.

“At first,” she said, “I was in disbelief. I was like, ‘Oh, my

SE Portland couple escapes harm after tree crashes onto van

PORTLAND, Ore. — A Southeast Portland woman, Jeannie Harwood, is thankful to be alive after a large fir tree narrowly missed crushing her in her minivan just before noon.

Her partner, musician Charles Suniga, is fortunate he was not electrocuted trying to rescue her.

The incident began a block from their home as Harwood began a Christmas errand.

Harwood said she remembers coming to a full stop at the corner before turning right on Southeast 142ndAvenue.

“So I went to turn, I just started to turn and my windshield just [obliterated]. And I thought a big huge branch had fallen on it,” she said. “I didn’t know. And then more branches just kept coming! And I was kind of stunned and I looked back and I saw the power lines wrapped around the car.”

Her partner, Charles, heard the crash and raced out the front door of their home.

“I just felt that
