Why the Porsche Cayenne S Is the driver’s SUV

You could argue that if not for the Cayenne SUV and its little brother the Macan, Porsche (POAHY) would be in a really rough spot financially.

Hard-core Porsche fans will never like these brutish ‘utes, but even they can’t deny the financial independence it gave the German automaker. And let’s not forget that nearly 20 years after its debut, the Cayenne truly is part of the Porsche bloodline.

The Cayenne and Macan are Porsche’s top selling vehicles, so any updates, changes and accompanying feedback are watched closely by both us in the media and the execs back in Stuttgart.

Uber to require all drivers, passengers to wear masks in fight against coronavirus spread

Starting Monday, Uber (UBER) will require its drivers and passengers to wear face coverings as the coronavirus crisis rages on around the world.

Even as some countries and U.S. states debate relaxing lockdown orders, the ride-hailing giant is implementing new rules to protect both drivers and customers. The company plans to enforce the new policy using technology that mandates drivers to upload an image of themselves wearing a mask, before they can pick up passengers on the platform.

“Starting on Monday, the next time you open the app things are going to look a little different for both riders and drivers,” Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi told reporters on Wednesday during a webcast. 

Khosrowshahi also announced that Uber had allocated $50 million to provide supplies for driver use, including millions of masks and face coverings and hand sanitizer. Additionally, the company has partnered with Clorox and Unilever to help drivers sanitize

Lyft to require drivers and riders to wear face masks

Lyft (LYFT) riders and drivers will now have to self-certify that they will wear a mask or face covering if they want to use the ride-sharing service.

The new measure comes as Lyft announces a slew of new safety procedures aimed at protecting drivers and riders from the impact of the coronavirus just as a number of states begin to unwind their lockdown orders.

Lyft’s announcement follows Uber’s (UBER) confirmation of a CNN report that the company will also require drivers and riders to wear face coverings when using the service in the U.S. Uber has said it is also developing a technology that will be able to detect if a driver is wearing a mask.

In addition to Lyft’s mask requirement, drivers will have to keep their cars clean and sanitize their hands frequently, keep windows down when possible, and avoid using recirculated air in their vehicles. Also, passengers

Uber and Lyft drivers face financial ruin after coronavirus

As the new coronavirus locks down cities across the world, Uber (UBER) and Lyft (LYFT) drivers face the possibility of financial ruin as more people remain in their homes to rein in the illness.

According to an Edison Trends study released Wednesday, Uber and Lyft rider spending in the two weeks prior to March 15 collapsed by more than 20% in California, and a whopping 40% in Washington State, two of the early hotspots in the U.S. coronavirus outbreak. In the week prior to March 15, Uber ridership in Manhattan alone fell by more than 24%. And those numbers are unlikely to recover anytime soon.

“It is a financial crisis for a lot of people,” says New York-based Uber driver Isjad C., who along with other drivers, didn’t want his full name used out of fear of repercussions from Uber or Lyft.

Citi (C) analyst Itay Michaeli laid out the

Will The Car Insurance Protect You Having An Expired Driver’s License?

An argument frequently place forward especially in an accident involving a single vehicle exiting a side road and hitting a automobile on the primary road. Going on the web can aid such borrowers to examine car insurance with no deposit monthly payments but in the finish it will be contingent on the insurance coverage organizations to approve or discard the application created on the applicant’s refund capacity. Attempt outside that insurance coverage group (depending on who you were with, they may possibly all belong to the very same larent organization). You want to claim your earned NCB just before the policy expires and on renewal you will have to pay a lowered car insurance insurance
