The number of accidents involving drunk drivers in Russia is reduced. According to traffic police statistics, in January-may 2018 total there were 999 of these 3 accidents, 1 of 122 incident occurred with motorists who refused to undergo medosvidetelstvovanie. Their total number decreased by 20.2% compared to January-may 2017.

In road accident with participation of drunk drivers and those who refused the test, from the beginning, died 941, injured 7 190 participants, i.e. a reduction in the accident rate in this category amounted to 36.3% and 18.0%, respectively.

The number of such accidents reduced over the past few years: for example, in comparison with January-may 2015, the figure fell by 33.1%, the mortality rate has fallen by 37.4%, while the number of wounded has decreased by 32.3%.

Simultaneously with the number of “drunken accidents” is reduced and the proportion of such accidents in the total number of recorded traffic incidents: if during the first five months of 2017, she held 22.6 percent in January-may this year, it was 18.6%.

But soon as the number of such accidents and their share will grow in the statistics. The point is not that drivers abruptly become more likely to get behind the wheel drunk, and that to reveal them would be more: in early July of 2018 will become the norm, according to which to determine the state motorists can also blood.

If now the verification is performed using the breath of the motorist to a breathalyzer, then soon doctors will give the opportunity to use a blood test to determine intoxication. This will allow to bring to justice those who are unconscious (or pretending to be).

Intoxicated will be defined as those drivers which will detect the presence of absolute ethyl spirit in concentration of 0,3 and more grammes on one litre of blood. The corresponding draft law in early April 2018, was signed by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

The traffic police intend to continue the fight against drunk drivers. It’s not just about the standard preventative measures and raids of the inspectors on the roads, but also other more extreme methods. Thus, the Agency proposed to oblige drivers of the Russian Federation to use alcolocks. They are special devices, which do not allow to start the engine before the driver will not breathe in the phone and prove that sober.

Man blowing into breathalyzer

This initiative is one of many proposed by the Department to implement strategies to reduce accidents, which was adopted by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in January 2018. The document assumes that by 2024 the level of social risk (number of fatalities per 100 000 persons) must reach 4, whereas at the time of approval of the document the figure was 13.8. Zero deaths in road accidents is to be achieved by 2030. The task is ambitious: this result is not achieved, none of the countries.

audi r8 plus competition

Audi r8,Audi r8 plus competition. Все образцы будут окрашены в цвет Suzuka Gray. По краям бампера — антикрылышки (канарды), подсмотренные у гоночных версий. В остальном оформление носа — обычное, только добавлен «чёрный» дизайн-пакет: глянцевые окантовки решётки радиатора, воздухозаборников спереди и вентиляционных окон сзади.

All samples will be painted in the color Suzuka Gray. The edges of the bumper — anticrisis (kenardy), all borrowed from the racing versions. Otherwise, registration of the nose is common, only added the “black” design pack: glossy edging of the grille, air intakes, front and rear ventilation Windows.

In November ten Americans will be able to buy limited edition Audi R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition package. This is the coupe edition based on the R8 V10 plus especially for US. The car received a complete package of performance parts from Audi Sport. Version Competition not more powerful “plus”, but has more downforce and a little bit easier.

Version Competition by default put black racing seats-buckets with red stitching, full leather trim including door cards, steering wheel in Alcantara with the zero mark, 550-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 13 speakers, shift paddles of carbon fiber.

Aerodynamics and should, first of all to give this version more speed on circular tracks with a large number of turns. Only 150 km/h the downforce is there, more than double the original model (now equivalent to 52 kg), and at 315 km/h grows up to 250 kg, a hundred higher than the serial “a plus”. Payback — increased drag. Because the maximum speed there is only 315 km/h instead of 330. Acceleration is not specified, and the common V10 plus — 3,2 with up to hundreds. There are about the same.

In carbon for aerodynamic kit also includes a large splitter, expanders sills, a fixed rear wing on the pylons with the inverted fastening, flaps at the corners of the rear bumper and diffuser with developed longitudinal ribs. Tires — Pirelli P Zero.

Decoration model — matte black, fully machined 20-inch wheels, the same wheels racing version of the R8 GT4 (that, however, the diameter is 18). They saved the compartment 12 kg curb weight. Another quart engineers have dropped, putting the titanium base plate carbon fiber brake pads. Other features: dynamic steering, adjustable three parameters suspension type coilover.

The 5.2 V10 engine (610 HP and 560 N•m) has not changed. By the way, under the curtain of the life of the first generation R8 she is also a Competition specifically for US, and there was “only” 578 “horses”. However, it’s more than not just a simple “er-eighth”, but modification of the GT.

Dealers of Audi in the U.S. model R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition will be in November. Valued this car at $237 350 (at current exchange rate from 15.58 million), plus another $2550 should pay for shipping and taxes. For comparison, the serial R8 V10 plus costs in America $194 400. We will add that in the next few months the entire family awaits the Audi R8 update, which will affect the appearance (slightly) and on the technique. Atmospheric dozen should slightly improve in power, and as never before, the initial versions will be forced V6 unit 2.9. However, official information about such a radical step no.

Mercedes a,Mercedes a amg. В новой серии кадров машина предстала с минимальным камуфляжем, тогда как в прошлый раз заклеено было все, что только можно.

In a new series of machine frame appeared with minimal camouflage, while the last time was pasted over everything.

Buyers in the United States, with a particular interest in looking at new spy shots of the sedan Mercedes-AMG A 35. The fact that A 35 hatchback to the American market will not reach, but the four-door sibling will be sold. In Russia a simple sedan A-class will appear for sure, and no “heated” it will not be. So, look to the frames.

On the roof of A hatch 35 engineers hoisted a full wing, but smooth aft of the saloon to spoil the “bench” the Germans did not, limiting the spoiler, although not-so-little. This is not the case, not counting the body type of course.

Supercharged “four” M 260 with a return of 306 HP and 400 N•m, combined with a seven-step “robot” AMG SpeedShift DCT and all-wheel drive 4Matic, accelerates the hatchback A 35 to a hundred in 4.7 s. We do not think that the sedan will show a difference of at least a tenth of a second. As of piatigorski, there must be added to the amplifiers stiffness of the body, an electronically shock absorbers, AMG Ride Control, an enhanced switching of the driving modes and settings of the stabilization system.

Exhaust pipes and diffuser — same as “warmed-up” hatchback.

The front especially has nothing to hide. The same mesh in the grille, the same two horizontal straps as the hatch. But in the corners of the bumper are not set kenardy (small spoiler). It seems that in terms of aerodynamics of the sedan, A 35 would be less “evil” than similar pyatidverka.

Given the importance to the overseas market, we can assume the premiere of the sedan, A 35 or in November in Los Angeles, or in January in Detroit. In the first half of 2019, the model will arrive on the market. If someone would think it “small” will need to wait for the family of “lighters” with the index 45. There are at least preparing the hatchback A-class, the crossover GLA and liftback CLA. Sedan A-class in this version, the company also likely will be built. “Forty-five” under the hood will be installed again “two liters”, but with hybrid additions (including waiting for electric compressor), while the capacity will reach 400-410 HP

Tiggo 5x has entered the Chinese market last fall, and almost immediately the Russian office Chery announced the intention to sell this model in our country under the name Tiggo 4. A year has passed, but the promised novelty in the salons of the Russian dealers did not appear, and this week it became known that Tiggo 5x endured early restyling. The fact that the original is very peculiar appearance of the SUV to the Chinese consumer is not liked, therefore it was sold sluggishly: from January to August this year, 608 sold 40 copies. For comparison, proportionate Baojun 510 (whose appearance, by the way, is also, frankly, for an Amateur) in the same period, found 250 507 buyers.
