How zimbabwe became worlds most expensive place to fuel a car
THE hardest places to find a parking space in the UK have been revealed - as well as the most expensive spots. There are some cities that don't have anywhere near enough car parks for the number of registered vehicles, and others where an hour's parking costs more than an eye-watering £7. And the top 10 worst spots in both categories have been named. One of the worst places to find a park is in the Northwest city of Chester, where there's not even a full space per 1000 of the registered cars in the city. And, the most expensive place to park up is Edinburgh , where you'll pay a whopping average of £7.78 an hour. London features on both lists - it's number five on the hardest places to find a parking space, and number four on the most expensive list.

This article is part of our series on the Future of Transportation , exploring innovations and challenges that affect how we move about the world. Communication is key to any good relationship. But when it comes to vehicles and their owners, silence largely prevails. Except for a few vague warning lights on the dashboard and side mirrors — and a few sensor-based sounds in some recent models and, of course, car horns — drivers know nothing about what the vehicles and pedestrians around them are about to do. A dangerous obstruction in the roadway, two cars about to move into the same lane, or a bicycle coming out of a blind alley up ahead are a few potential surprises, with the driver finding out about them often too late — sometimes with deadly results. Yet by later this decade much of such surprises is expected to change. Manufacturers are developing systems generically known as C-V2X — shorthand for cellular vehicle-to-everything technology — for vehicles to communicate … [Read more...] about Hello, Fellow Car.

close Video WHO calls for deeper investigation into lab leak theory World Health Organization adviser Jamie Metzl joined "Fox & Friends Weekend" to discuss why he thinks there is a "real possibility" the pandemic began with an accidental lab leak. The World Health Organization announced a public comment period for a new treaty aimed at better tackling future pandemics, but critics say the process, which has now ended, has so far been too short and secretive. "A public comment period on the World Health Organization’s power grab becomes nothing more than a public relations charade when there is no accountability from the governed over those who seek to regulate their lives—and should not and cannot be used as justification for moving forward with this egregious breach of constitutional principle," Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., told Fox News Digital in a statement. At issue is the WHO's so-called "Pandemic Accord," a proposed treaty that … [Read more...] about World Health Organization’s short public comment period for pandemic treaty receives backlash

Crossover SUVs are a big thing everywhere right now, and while cars like the Honda HR-V and Hyundai Tucson are still riding on a bit of hype carried over from the success of the generation before, Kia has been steadily making inroads with its range as well and the new Kia Niro Hybrid is a car that seems tailor-made for Singapore. It's a model that was first revealed in early 2022, and replaces the last one which dates back to 2019, which at the time of its launch was the cheapest Category A COE hybrid car you could buy. The basics of the Kia Niro is that it's a small crossover SUV, front-wheel driven and powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine and electric motor combo. It's got entirely new bodywork, features the new Kia logo and front 'face'. It's promoted as a car that's comfortable for the family, and also a huge step forwards in refinement over the old car. While the small Kia Stonic always seemed a bit underwhelming, the Niro Hybrid might very well be the total opposite. … [Read more...] about 2022 Kia Niro Hybrid review: Practical, stylish, and surprisingly quite posh
