WeFuel's gas delivery app is both awesome and just plain stupid

Silicon Valley Comes To The Rescue...

Not funny however, is another report illustrating yet another risk of ICEV use:
A family in New Jersey, trapped over the weekend in the massive East Coast snowstorm, was trying to dig its way out when the chill became too much to handle. The mother and her children — ages 1 and 3 — huddled in the car with the engine running to keep warm. The kids’ father tried to clear the snow outside.

Authorities said no one seemed to realize that the tailpipe was clogged with snow, pushing deadly carbon monoxide gas into the car. When the father went to check on them, police said, he could not wake them up...

Strange that CO detectors are not mandatory for ICEVs.

Imagine what the regulatory obstacles would be if anyone tried to introduce something as hazardous as ICEVs into the economy today.

Yet we continue to tolerate all the risks, just because we have convinced ourselves they are necessary.

At least the ICEVs in Shasta County this week are interesting, for a change...
