Obtaining An Insurance Policy Through The Pennsylvania Assigned Risk Plan

By R Daniel Williams

While a car insurance policy can benefit a lot of people, not everybody can be qualified enough to get approved for an insurance. Especially when you are identified as a high-risk driver, companies will not anymore bother to take a look at the documents that you have submitted for application. But with the birth of the assigned risk program of the Pennsylvania auto insurance, people can now say goodbye to this kind of dilemma.

The state of Pennsylvania is known to be one of those that require every vehicle owner to carry Pennsylvania auto insurance. But with the changing lifestyles of people that somehow pose an effect on their risk ratings as car automobile owners, not all of them may be approved of the Pennsylvania auto insurance. That is why the assigned risk program was made for these high-risk drivers.

So who exactly are these high-risk drivers? To become one of those that fall under the high-risk category, there are factors that are taken into account. Some of them may be the age, the crime rate of the city where the driver is residing, and the model of the vehicle to be insured. And when you are unfortunate enough to be classified under the high-risk category, you could still qualify for the assigned risk program.

So what can the assigned risk program do for you? This program is the last resort of people that cannot get an approval of the commercial insurance companies. However, while approval is always sure since it is the state that makes the program possible, a higher premium payment can be expected due to the greater risk that will be taken on.

So how can you obtain an assigned risk plan? Take note of the following steps towards a successful application.

– Consult an insurance agent. Seek his advice on where and how to get an assigned risk plan.

– Be reminded that your agent will not immediately go after the assigned risk program for you and instead, he will make an effort to seek for a normal insurance coverage first.

– Only after three failed attempts of getting an approval for a normal coverage will your agent start to apply for the assigned risk plan.

– The agent will complete an application form and submit the same to the appropriate state department handling the processing.

– In your application form, the insurance agent will explain that you are classified under the high-risk category but you need car insurance so that you can drive around legally.

– However, if you don’t want to bear additional costs in consulting with an insurance agent, you can also apply for an assigned risk plan by yourself. Just go directly to the state’s insurance department so you can be assisted in searching for an insurance company that can accommodate you.

Getting a car insurance has never been this easy. Through the help of the assigned risk program, people can now sit behind the steering wheel without the fear of getting trapped in between the consequences of an accident.

100 Miles Per Gallon? That’s So ‘1992’

By Matt Timion

According to a new survey by JD Power and Associates, approximately one third of consumers in the United States consider fuel economy to be a key factor when purchasing a new car. With fuel economy, dependence on foreign oil, pollution, and global warming weighing heavy on the minds of so many people recently, it may be a surprise to learn that in 1992, General Motors actually produced a vehicle that achieved 100 miles per gallon (MPG).

In order to get a better idea of what General Motors has been doing for the last 25 years, it is important to first learn about another amazing vehicle: The GM TPC. The TPC (which stands for ‘Two Person Commuter’) was able to obtain 75 miles-per-gallon. It weighed approximately 1000 pounds and resembled a Geo Metro. GM abandoned the project vehicle, which contained a frugal 3-cylinder engine, when they needed to add another 200 pounds of reinforcement. This unfortunate turn of events can be blamed on GM’s need to comply with America’s then lax safety laws.

While the existence of such a vehicle may be shocking to some, what is even more shocking is the existence of other prototypes made by General Motors that met the same demise. These vehicles included the GM Lean Machine (80 MPG) in 1982, along with a number of other fuel efficient vehicles like the GM Aero-X, the GM Aero 2000, and the finally the GM Ultralite (which had achieved 100 miles-per-gallon). While Honda was leading the world with the Civic VX in 1992 (achieving 50 miles-per-gallon) the USA- owned General Motors was producing 100 MPG vehicles behind the scenes, all the while selling 20 MPG vehicles to the public.

100 miles per gallon is not only obtainable, but it already has been obtained.

One obvious question must be asked. Why are these high gas mileage vehicles not available for sale? Why do companies like General Motors, Honda, Toyota, and Ford continue to sell 30 MPG vehicles when something so much better was made before? The answer to that question is, of course, a complex one. Market analyses, surveys, polls, government regulations, and other red tape held back efficiency.

The short answer to this question is simple: While the U.S. continues to sell its traditional vehicles, other vehicles are being bought and sold far from America, by the same companies.

Vehicles that can attain over 70 miles per gallon have been sold in Europe and Japan for many years. Recently, Volkswagen produced a vehicle called the ‘Lupo’ that is a perfect example. This vehicle, which achieves 78 miles per gallon, likely will never be sold in the USA. For the 2007 model year, Honda has introduced the Fit to the US Market (known in other parts of the world as the ‘Jazz’). In Japan, the Jazz comes standard with a smaller engine and a few fresh ideas to help boost fuel economy. In the USA, the Fit doesn’t have the smaller engine and isn’t even an option.

Americans have always loved big cars, or at least that’s what they tell us. They, of course, are the auto manufacturers. This has nothing to do with conspiracy theories and everything to do with economics. When General Motors sells a giant truck or SUV, they make a lot of money. When they sell a small two-person commuter, they make next-to-nothing. As a consequence of this realization, all that was needed have been broadcasts of a few finely focused commercials to the citizens of the richest country in the world. Manufacturers have persuaded the citizenry that they absolutely need these ‘Tanks on Wheels’. Profits skyrocket. To remind Americans that there are no options, merely look at the fact that the options heave never been presented.

General Motors had the chance to be the world leader in fuel economy, which it turned down to be the world leader in SUVs. GM is not alone, as every other auto manufacturer has produced similar vehicles over the last 25 years and denied the U.S. access to them.

Americans should not only ask how they can get better gas mileage, but most importantly ask why they have never been given that option in the first place. In a world where wars are waged over oil, more options should be offered to a concerned public. Perhaps blowing the dust off of 25 year old blue prints is a good place to start.

Hydrogen For Cars, Make A Hydrogen Generator For Your Car

By Mick Legg

Did you know that there is a way to cut your gas consumption in half? I’m talking about Hydrogen for cars a method where plain water is used to produce HHO gas to use as a supplement to your regular gasoline.

If you make a Hydrogen Generator for your car you can expect to get gas mileage improvements of up to 50%, this is because HHO gas burns with up to 3 times more power than ordinary gasoline. And when you mix the two together by using a homemade Hydrogen Generator you will get a much more fuel efficient engine and so get more mpg.

Hydrogen for cars is not a new concept, in fact it has been around for a long time, but due to pressure from the big oil companies it has been suppressed and kept out of the public eye. People have been making homemade Hydrogen Generators for their cars and trucks for years with great results. Now because of the latest oil crisis the technology has had resurgence and has come on in leaps and bounds. This technology has come so far in the past few years that it is now possible for anyone to make a Hydrogen Generator cheaply and easily.

The principle behind a homemade Hydrogen Generator is a simple process called electrolysis. This process uses the electricity from your vehicles battery to break a small amount of water down into its two main molecules (Hydrogen and Oxygen). A by-product of this is HHO or Brown’s gas, a gas that is highly flammable which is then mixed with your regular fuel and burned in your engine in the usual way.

You can make a Hydrogen Generator for your car very easily and also very cheaply. All the parts you need can be bought from local auto stores and hardware shops. You can also buy kits to put together a homemade Hydrogen Generator but these tend to be expensive and can work out to be ten times the cost of building one from scratch.

The easiest way to make a Hydrogen Generator is to use one of the downloadable manuals from the internet. These manuals give you full and detailed instructions of exactly what parts you need, and a step by step guide to put them together. They contain detailed diagrams and even videos to show you how to make a homemade Hydrogen Generator for your car or truck.

A homemade Hydrogen Generator will work on any make or model of car, truck, or Suv, and once installed you can expect to get great gas mileage improvements. It can also be removed from your vehicle very easily without causing any damage, so if you sell your car or truck you can keep it to use in your next vehicle.

All in all Hydrogen for cars seems to make a lot of sense, and as it is so easy and cheap to make a Hydrogen Generator for you car I can see it catching on in a big way. If you are interested and would like to make a Hydrogen Generator for your own car check out the top downloadable guides that I have reviewed on my website.

History of SWAT


Don AdamsHighly trained teams of law enforcement officers operate under many different names in different regions of the United States. They are specially trained groups of individuals who work high risk missions that fall outside of the scope of standard law enforcement. Collectively, they are known as SWAT teams.The late sixties in Los Angeles were a dangerous time. There was an unfortunate surge in violent and sophisticated crime. Sniper killings and domestic terrorism became more prevalent. Of particular note were the Watts Riot, where a civilian fired at police officers and citizens with a sniper rifle. The LAPD found itself incapable of dealing with the rise in crime using their typical law enforcement means.Daryl Gates of the LAPD facilitated the organization of a team of specially trained police units to counter the rise in crime. He wished to name the team Special Weapons Assault Team. His deputy police chief saw the aggressive naming convention as a possible public relations problem and suggested he change it. Gates, wanting to keep the acronym SWAT, changed the name to Special Weapons and Tactics.SWAT teams continued to grow and train mostly in southern California through the 1970s. These teams operated individually with little standardization of training and tactics. While there was discussion and some cross-training, the teams operated independently.Following a conflict with the Symbionese Liberation Army, the LAPD released a one hundred page report on the development of SWAT. In this report, they described SWAT’s purpose as the following: “The purpose of SWAT is to provide protection, support, security, firepower, and rescue to police operations in high personal risk situations where specialized tactics are necessary to minimize casualties.”In the 1980s, SWAT teams began to perform hostage rescue and other specialized skills which required yet more training. This took SWAT teams to a higher level of professionalism and necessitated some standardization in training. Today, the tactics developed by SWAT teams are being taught to police officers to encounter more sophisticated and violent criminals. The lessons learned in the last 20 years by SWAT teams has been extremely valuable in refining the way we train police officers to handle situations such as the active shooter. More and more departments are reaching out to other law enforcement agencies and private companies to train personnel in Basic SWAT team tactics such as close quarters battle (CQB) training, patrol rifle training, and crisis response.

Don Adams has over 10 years of law enforcement and private security experience. He is a current S.W.A.T. Officer and holds an Advanced Texas Peace Officers license with over 2500 hours of specialized training. As a certified law enforcement firearms instructor, Don is currently involved in training domestic and foreign police officers in

police tactical training.

National Safety Regulations

By Brenda Williams

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the United States regulates the safety standards of motor vehicles bought and sold within the country. These regulations are put into use to keep the drivers and passengers of all types of motor vehicles safe when on the roads. There are hundreds of vehicle safety regulations across the country today that are enforced by vehicle manufacturers, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the NHTSA and state and local law enforcement agencies.

One of the most important safety regulations in the country today is the placement of the vehicle’s controls and displays on the dashboard. The government regulates that the most important controls and displays be within reach of the driver when being restrained by a safety belt and that certain controls mounted on the dashboard should be labeled.

Another highly important safety regulation is the requirement for all motor vehicles to have rear view mirrors installed in the cars. The rear view mirrors must be located inside and outside of the vehicle. They are manufactured to reduce the number of deaths and injuries that occur on the roads each year. These mirrors are installed on a vehicle so that the driver has a clear and unobstructed view of the rear of their car and other cars approaching them.

Seat belts have been used in vehicle for a handful of decades now and they have been directly related to the reduced number of serious injuries and deaths on the roads when accidents occur. The safety regulation for seat belts includes anything related or used in seat belt installment. The requirements for the assembly and installation of seat belts includes straps, webbing, buckles, fasteners and all hardware used in the installation and usage of seat belts. Aside from seat belts, bumpers are required on all vehicles that hit the roads. Bumpers are used to reduce the amount of damage to vehicles involved in front end or rear collisions. They also help to limit the impact of the collision.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released one of their most comprehensive reports about the safety of motorists and their passengers on non-public highways. The report concluded that over 1,700 fatalities and over 840,000 injuries occur each year due to accidents off of public highways. Another study released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration details the new numbers regarding highway fatalities. The study shows that there have been a record low number of highway fatalities. In the year 2007, between the months of January to October, there were 34,502 motorists killed on the roads of America. In 2008, between the months of January to October, there were 31,110 motorists killed on the roads of America.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also released information regarding safety recalls on different cars across the country. Motorists can now be instantly informed about safety recalls regarding their car with a new automated alert system. These alerts can be received via email with a computer, on a cell phone or a PDA device and they are free of charge.
