Is an Apple Car Deal With Hyundia-Kia Getting Closer?

The chatter about a coming announcement from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) that it has struck a deal with automaker Hyundai keeps getting louder. As we noted on Wednesday, the rumor mill began spinning up late last year and the volume knob is now heading toward 11.

CNBC.com, for example, reported on Wednesday that Apple “is close to finalizing” a deal with Hyundai to build the Apple Car at Kia’s assembly plant in Georgia. The vehicle would be Apple-branded and fully autonomous, with production scheduled to begin in 2024. Earlier reports suggested that production of the Apple Car would total 100,000 in 2024.

Manchester man killed in second fatal motorcycle crash in days in the Queen City | Public Safety

A Manchester man’s death Friday morning is the second motorcycle fatality in the Queen City this week.

Friday’s crash in south Manchester took place the day before the official start of Motorcycle Week, when thousands of bikers flood into the state to gather and celebrate motorcycle culture in the Lakes Region.

Cyclists Want To Use Motorcycle Lanes On Weekends Due To A Very Obvious Issue

Subscribe to our Telegram channel for the latest stories and updates.

Cyclists have often been the subject of significant amount of vitriol online, especially from motorists who find them rather annoying and dangerous on the roads. In response, they’ve come out to make their case – like suggesting that motorbike lanes can be reserved bicycle lanes on weekends.

Faz Adhili, a long-time member of Malaysia’s cycling scene and owner of Plan A bicycle shop, notes that there is a lack of infrastructure available in the country for cyclists, which is why so much misunderstanding happens between cyclists and motorists.

In an Astro Awani interview, he says that even existing bike lanes are often not usable for cyclists due to people not respecting the lanes at all. Plenty of people double-park on the cycling lanes, and some even open roadside stalls on the lane, obstructing the usage for cyclists.
