Flaying Cars


flying-cars_48

For more than five decades, science fiction has been tormenting us with hallucination of in-the-air roadways and hastily choreographing sports car-like flying cars. A number of businesses have been hunting the reverie for such a long time.


Personal Air and Land Vehicle

pal-v_48


PAL-V Europe BV aims to build everybody’s dream in mobility, a full-fledged flying and full-fledged driving vehicle. Excerpt from the company’s page:


Skycar M400: Moller’s latest design

moller-skycar1_48


The dream flying machine is one of its kind personal vertical take off and landing (VTOL) vehicle that can cruise at a maximum speed of 375 MPH at 13,200 ft.

The asking price of a Skycar is estimated to be about $1 million, but we can hope it to get as low as $60,000 when it will be mass produced.


Macro SkyRider X2R

skyrider2_48


How about going 200 miles in a mere 45 minutes? The enthralling new aero car SkyRider X2R developed by Macro industries can do the same.

The unique vehicle is said to be available in five years after receiving investment funding. They say that it could cost somewhere between $500,000 and $1 million per unit.

.Types of Coverage






If you own a car, you must have insurance. That's the law. In many states, auto insurance is so expensive it's been a major, bitter issue in state political campaigns. Auto insurance premiums have gone up 3 percent within the past two years and are only expected to drop 0.5 percent in 2007, according to the Insurance Information Institute.

Helping to moderate overall rates is the emergence of baby boomers into late middle age. That means fewer accidents and lower rates for them. A second factor working to lower rates is that cars have become safer.

Despite those trends, the average annual car insurance costs for Americans are estimated at $847 in 2007, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Because auto coverage and rates are highly specific, your annual premium could vary greatly from that amount. Your rates depend on:

• your age
• your driving record
• your vehicle
• the vehicle's age
• where you live

Knowing this information, you can still cut your costs. By tailoring your coverage to what you really need and then shopping around carefully, you can get a better deal on your insurance.

Three Types of Coverage

Before shopping for auto insurance, it's best to understand the different components of coverage: liability, collision and comprehensive, with each accounting for a distinct part of the premium you pay.

Both the collision and comprehensive sections of your policy, which together account for 40 percent or more of your premium, involve a deductible amount that you must pay before the insurance kicks in on each claim. Policies also might include medical payments coverage for you and your passengers, regardless of who is at fault, and uninsured motorist protection in case your car is hit by an uninsured driver.

Most policies also offer lower-cost add-ons such as rental reimbursement in case your car is incapacitated for a period of time after an accident for repair, as well as towing insurance.

What You Need

To keep costs down, figure out what types of coverage you can avoid entirely and then take just what you need of the essential sections.

Nearly all states require drivers to carry liability insurance, but in some states the amount of coverage required is quite low — say $15,000 to $25,000. No matter what your state regulates, get a policy with coverage limits of at least $100,000 per person injured and $300,000 per accident. Lower limits won't protect you because the average personal-injury award in such cases in recent years has been about $323,000, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Get at least $50,000 in property-damage-liability coverage. Though state limits are much lower, repair bills can escalate swiftly on luxury cars and other expensive vehicles.

The fastest way to cut your premium is to increase the deductible on your collision and comprehensive coverage. Raising your deductible from the common $200 or $250 limit to $500 can cut 10 to 15 percent a year from your insurance bill. Weigh these potential savings against the higher out-of-pocket expenses you'll incur if you file a claim.

For older cars, you may be able to drop comprehensive and collision coverage entirely; if the car is more than five years old, consider this option. After all, keeping up costly premiums makes little sense if the car isn't worth that much. Remember that any payout will be on the market value only of that car. As a rule of thumb, don't keep up coverage if the premium for collision and comprehensive is more than 10 percent of the retail used value of the car.

Most states require uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, which is often $20,000 to $40,000 in protection. If your vehicle is hit by a driver who has no or insufficient insurance, this section will cover injuries to your passengers and other expenses that ordinary health insurance does not pick up. It also protects you if an uninsured motorist hits you while you're walking or riding a bicycle. You can purchase $100,000 in coverage for about $50 or less each year, but it's usually worth the cost to step up your limit.

On the other hand, you may be able to save on medical-payments coverage. Regardless of fault in an accident, this coverage will pay doctor and hospital bills — and sometimes funeral expenses — for you and your passengers. But check to see if a combination of your life and health insurance would cover these items. If so, decline this optional feature, which could save as much as $100 a year.

.7 Tips To Reduce Your Car Insurance Costs.

Cheap Car Insurance

With the cost of car insurance becoming more and more of an issue for the average American family, there are increasing numbers of people looking for cheap car insurance. But although it is possible to find cheap car insurance, the question remains, is it worth buying?
Everyone knows that car insurance companies are not all equal. Cheap car insurance is wonderful when paying the bill, but make a mistake on the company you select and you could find that the cheap car insurance policy that you found may turn into a nightmare. Cheap car insurance may not turn out to be so attractive when making a claim.
So if you have found a discount car insurance broker don’t just take the cheapest quote that you get. You need to find out a little about the insurance company that is offering the cheap car insurance rates.
And there’s ways to reduce the cost of your car insurance even with the best of companies. Here are some tips for those looking for cheap car insurance to help reduce the cost of car insurance without compromising other things.
7 Cheap Car Insurance Tips
1. Look at your deductible amount. This is the amount that you pay first out of any claim. The cost of your policy is directly related to this amount. Many people, particularly those who have had their insurance policy for a long time, have never considered whether they ought to vary their deductible. If you have a good driving record and are prepared to increase the risk of paying a larger amount in the event of a (hopefully unlikely) claim you can save money by increasing your deductible.
2. Have a look at the type of car you drive. Certain types of cars attract higher car insurance rates. Cars such as sports cars and also certain makes and models that are prime theft candidates cost more to insure. If you are buying a car then find out which makes and models these are before you buy.
3. Drive carefully. Although it sounds a little trite to say it, your car insurance cost is a factor of your risk profile. You won’t get cheap car insurance if you have had 3 speeding fines and 2 accidents in the last year. These things are all taken into account and you should take care with how you drive. It all adds up onto your bill. There are big safe driver discounts available.
4. Considering installing safety and anti theft devices in your car. Again these affect your risk profile. If you have a car that is safer and less at risk of theft it should be cheaper to insure. And if you have a car with certain safety devices now check that your insurance company is aware of these, if not tell them.
5. Look at your policy when it comes to renewal time, don’t just pay. There are some things that you can vary in your policy that will affect the cost. Often there are some things there which duplicate other insurance that you may have that can be eliminated. Be critical, look carefully and ask questions about all these before you renew your policy.
6. Have a look at who your other insurers are. Many insurers offer a discount for multiple policies. If you insure your house with a certain company then ring them up and find out if they do car insurance. Get a quote from them. Find out what discounts they offer.
7. Find a good online discount car insurance broker before renewing. The internet is a fabulous resource. Use it. There are all sorts of discount insurance brokers online where you can get fast quotes from a wide range of companies. Don’t just settle for the same company you always use. Car insurance rates vary all the time. Always get comparable quotes before renewing any policy.
So if you’re in the market for cheap car insurance there’s some ideas for you. Don’t just accept that car insurance is always prohibitively expensive, get out there and do something about it.

.How Much Car Insurance Do You Really Need.

http://l.yimg.com/dv/i/hub/17/f3/1788804180_10673327294.jpg

A growing number of people are dropping their auto insurance to try to save money, according to a recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). If the current rate of unemployment continues, the IRC estimates that the national uninsured rate will climb from 13.8 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2010. With that many people driving without coverage, it's dangerous to be uninsured. But how much car insurance do you really need?
If you're like many people feeling the pinch, your inclination is to get the bare minimum of insurance coverage required by the law in your state. That's a good place to start, though those minimums may not fully protect you -- or your assets -- if you file a claim. We recommend getting more than the minimum coverage unless you are driving a beater and have no assets to protect.
Every state in the nation, except for New Hampshire and Wisconsin, requires that you have liability insurance, and that mandatory coverage varies according to state.
In the chart below, minimum liability limits are read as follows (in thousands of dollars):

  • Bodily injury liability for one person in an accident


  • Bodily injury liability for all people injured in an accident


  • Property damage liability for one accident

So, for Alabama, the minimum requirements are $25,000 of bodily injury liability for one person, $50,000 bodily injury liability for all people and $25,000 property damage liability.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP), or Medical Payments (MedPay) in some states, pays for your own medical expenses, any lost wages and whatever other costs may arise when you're injured in an accident. It usually pays about 80 percent of your losses, and it also pays a death benefit. PIP is required in: Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Utah.
Some states also require you to purchase car insurance that will cover your own medical expenses, pain and suffering losses and, in some states, car damage in the event that the other motorist is at fault and is either uninsured or underinsured. See the chart below to find out if this applies to you.

Even though each state has minimum (or no) requirements for bodily injury liability, it is probably in your best interest to purchase higher limits. If someone else is injured and you're at fault, the minimum liability coverage may not cover their medical expenses, in which case their attorney will most likely come after your assets. It is generally recommended that you purchase 100/300 limits of bodily injury liability. On the other hand, if your personal assets don't amount to much, you don't have a whole lot for them to bother about, so the minimum requirements might actually suit you and will save you some much-needed cash.
Besides various forms of liability insurance, there is collision and comprehensive auto insurance coverage to consider. Collision covers damage to the policyholder's car resulting from running into anything, be it another car, a fire hydrant, or a light post. Comprehensive coverage takes care of your car in the case of theft, fire, falling objects, explosions, or other unexpected problems.
Collision and comprehensive coverage are required in most lease contracts, and are essential if you own an expensive car. If you're driving an old rattletrap, on the other hand, and the sum of your premium and your deductible are close to or exceed the worth of your vehicle, you might want to consider doing without this coverage.
Before you purchase any type of auto insurance coverage, be sure to study your other insurance policies so you don't end up paying for something you don't need. If you have a decent health insurance plan, you might get away with purchasing the bare minimum personal injury protection coverage- or none at all if your state doesn¿t require it. However, you might end up paying a co-pay and deductible that wouldn't apply if you have PIP or MedPay.
Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage might also be a wise buy, even if you have full medical coverage, as it can pay for your pain and suffering damages. If you belong to an organization that offers roadside assistance, you don't need to purchase that through your insurer. The same thing applies for mechanical breakdown insurance if you own a newly financed or leased vehicle which is still covered under warranty.
It's easy to be resentful of the money spent on insurance. Keep in mind that auto insurance will most likely come to your rescue at some point, so it's imperative to purchase a worthwhile policy. Know what coverage you must have and know what additional coverage fits your lifestyle. Then if trouble strikes, you'll be ready.

.Auto Insurance Checklist.


Figure out what kind of coverage you need before you start shopping
Shopping for auto insurance? The price you pay for your auto insurance can vary by hundreds of dollars, depending on your driving record, the type of car you have and the insurance company you buy your policy from. Here is a list of things you can do to save money.

Shop Around

Get at least three price quotes. You can call companies directly or access information on the Internet. Your state insurance department (http://www.iii.org/media/companies/state_org/insur_departments/) may also provide a means to compare prices.
Get quotes from different types of insurance companies. Some sell through their own agents. Some sell through independent agents who offer policies from several insurance companies. Other companies sell directly to consumers over the phone or via the Internet. The price may vary depending on the sales method.
But don't shop by price alone. You want a company that answers your questions and handles claims fairly and efficiently. Sources for finding the right kind of company include: word of mouth, i.e. friends, relatives, co-workers; your state insurance department, where you can find consumer complaint ratios by company; and consumer magazines. You can also check the financial health of insurance companies through independent rating companies.

Before you buy a car, compare insurance costs

Your premium is based in part on the car’s sticker price, the cost to repair it, its overall safety record and the likelihood of theft. Many insurers offer discounts for features that reduce the risk of injuries or theft, such as air bags, anti-lock brakes, daytime running lights and anti-theft devices.
For more information on car safety, check the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Cars that are favorite targets for thieves cost more to insure. For more information on car theft, check the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).

Ask for a higher deductable

Your deductible is the amount of money you pay out-of-pocket before your insurance policy kicks in. By requesting higher deductibles, you can lower your costs substantially. For example, increasing your deductible from $200 to $500 could reduce your collision and comprehensive coverage premium by 15 to 30 percent. Going to a $1,000 deductible can save you 40 percent or more. However, keep in mind that you’ll need to have the amount of the deductible on hand should something happen to your car.

Reduce coverage in older cars

Consider dropping collision and/or comprehensive coverage on older cars. It may not be cost-effective to continue insuring cars worth less than 10 times the amount you would pay for coverage. Any claim payment you receive would not substantially exceed your premiums minus the deductible. Claims occur on average only once every 11 or 12 years. Auto dealers and banks can tell you the worth of a car, or you can look it up online at Kelley Blue Book.

Buy your homeowners and auto coverage from the same insurer

Many insurers will give you a discount if you buy two or more types of insurance from them. Also, you may get a reduction if you have more than one vehicle insured with the same company. Some insurers reduce premiums for long-time customers. But shop around carefully; you may still save more money buying from a different insurance company even with the multi-policy discount.

Take advantage of low-mileage discounts

Some companies offer discounts to motorists who drive a lower than average number of miles per year. Low mileage discounts can also apply to drivers who carpool to work.

Ask about group insurance

You may be eligible to get insurance through a group plan from your employer, or through professional, business and alumni groups or other associations. Group plans often provide substantial discounts. Ask your employer, or any groups or clubs of which you are a member, about this option.

Maintain good credit

Your credit rating may affect what you pay for insurance, so monitor it carefully. You can get this information directly from the three major credit-rating agencies (Equifax, Experian, Trans Union). There are also various Web sites that allow you to check your credit rating and provide tips on how to improve your score.

Seek out safe driver discounts

Most insurance companies offer discounts to policyholders who have not had any accidents or moving violations for a number of years. You may also qualify for a cut if you have recently taken a defensive driving course, if you are over 50 and retired, or if there is a young driver on the policy who is a good student, has taken a drivers education course or is away at a college, generally at least 100 miles away.
When you comparison shop, be sure to inquire about discounts for the following (availability will vary according to the state and company):

  • No accidents in 3 years


  • No moving violations in 3 years


  • Drivers over 50 to 55 years of age


  • Driver training course


  • Defensive driving course


  • Student drivers with good grades


  • College students away from home


  • $500 deductible


  • $1,000 deductible


  • Air bags


  • Anti-lock brakes


  • Daytime running lights


  • Anti-theft device


  • Low annual mileage


  • Auto and homeowners coverage with the same company


  • More than one car insured with the same company


  • Long-time customer

But don’t forget that the key to savings is not the discounts but the final price. A company that offers few discounts may still have a lower overall price.
