Auto Vehicle Fires: Be Prepared in Case of an Emergency

 

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recently acknowledged that a vehicle fire problem exists in the United States. According to NFPA statistics, more people died from highway vehicle fires than from apartment fires in 2004. Yet, few drivers think of a fire extinguisher as a critical component of their car safety kit. Reports show that on average, a vehicle fire occurs once every two minutes, and most happen during the summer months – June, July and August. A fire extinguisher within reach inside the vehicle can be useful in an emergency or to quickly put out a small, smoldering fire.

VEHICLE FIRE FACTS

  • More than 266,000 highway vehicle fires occurred in 2004, causing nearly $1 billion in property loss, cites the National Fire Protection Association.
  • Between 1999-2002, passenger cars accounted for 80 percent of the nearly 270,000 highway vehicle fires.
  • Mechanical or electrical failures cause more than two-thirds (71 percent) of highway vehicle fires, and 66 percent begin in the engine, running gear or wheel area.
  • According to consumer affairs Web sites, many automobile owners who experienced mechanical-related vehicle fires initially smelled a strange odor then witnessed smoke filtering from under the hood or wheel area.
  • Once flames occur in the engine, it takes an average of four minutes for the fire to reach the passenger compartment, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
  • On average, Americans commute 52 minutes to and from work. That equals nine days a year spent in the car, not counting road trips or vacations. (ABC News Poll)
  • All commercial vehicles must have at least one UL-rated 5-B:C extinguisher, or a 10- B:C unit if carrying hazardous materials. Passenger cars do not need to carry fire extinguishers, yet automobiles are involved in 12 times as many fires as commercial freight trucks and result in larger numbers of casualties and a larger dollar loss.

VEHICLE FIRE SAFETY TIPS

  • Make sure that everyone has exited the vehicle.
  • Notify the fire department before attempting to extinguish the fire.
  • Use your extinguisher only to keep a small, smoldering, contained fire from growing or to create a safe pathway from the vehicle.
  • Read the instructions and become familiar with your fire extinguisher’s parts and operation BEFORE a fire breaks out.
  • Remember the “PASS” system:
    • Pull the pin. Hold unit upright.
    • Aim at the base of the fire.
    • Squeeze lever.
    • Sweep from side to side.

is it legal for a wholesale licensed autobroker to advertise ???

Standard
yes and no
you may advertise your broker services
but not access to specific vehicles
you could reference vehicles advertised by retail dealers
with whom you have a brokering agreement
we allow that for vehicles placed on retail consignment
our drafted sale program costs 425. per vehicle
with red flag certification
you may show cars consigned to retailers
but you must negotiate and complete the sale
at the retail dealer holding that vehicle in its inventory
hope that makes sense
you have to be very careful
if you are not a licensed retailer yourself
the brokering agreement you hold may enable some advertising
under the retail dealers license

odometer rollback scams
odometer rollback scams

KTVU.com

OAKLAND, Calif. —

You might think digital odometers on modern vehicles car can’t be rolled back, but DMV officials tell 2 Investigates that they are even easier to roll back than older odometers.

The amateur videos posted on the Internet look like something out of a video game.  In a matter of seconds, digital odometers are rolled back, sometimes by tens of thousands of miles, at the touch of a button.

Investigators say it’s only some of the evidence of a troubling rise in odometer fraud in California.  A recent study by vehicle history reporting website Carfax found more odometers are illegally “rolled back” in California than anywhere else.

The same study reports more than 295,000 cars with rolled back odometers were on the road in California.  California was also at the top of the list of states with the higest percentage of rolled back odometers, ahead of Nevada, Massachusetts, New York, and Texas.

The U.S. Department of Justice estimates victims of this kind of fraud lose an average of $4,000 per vehicle.

Keat Fleckner of Livermore is among the recent victims.

Fleckner bought a 1990 Toyota pick-up with about 150,000 miles for $2600.  He didn’t know he had been duped until his engine blew out.

“The first thing that goes through your mind is, I’m in the middle of the highway and my truck’s not running,” said Fleckner.

A Carfax vehicle history report revealed the odometer had been rolled back by as much as 150,000 miles, meaning its true mileage was closer to 300,000 miles.

“Then you start reflecting: Did I just buy a piece of crap?” asked Fleckner.

Fleckner chose to keep the truck, but repairs cost him another $5,000.

At DMV headquarters in Sacramento, Commander Tom Wilson showed 2 Investigates how criminals are easily changing digital odometers with equipment meant for mechanics working on cars involved in accidents.

“In previous years, we would get just a few cases trickling in. Now it just seems like the floodgates are open,” said Wilson.

Two recent cases involved more than 500 vehicles, according to Wilson. He showed KTVU more than 50 instrument panels seized by investigators.

In one of the cases, investigators arrested three men for selling more than 200 cars with rolled back odometers.  Wilson says the men moved the cars between the Bay Area and Central Valley to try to cover their tracks.  The suspects also altered car titles to reflect the new lower mileage.

“By their own records, we found they profited almost $296,000 before the radar was even focused on them,” said Wilson.

Virtually all of their business was done on Craigslist.  Investigators say they search the website on a regular basis, looking for red flags.  Experts say cars most likely to have their odometers rolled back are 14 to 15 years old.

Fleckner has now taken on a second job to help pay for the unexpected expenses that came with his truck.

The DMV has published a list of tips and advice to help consumers avoid becoming victims of odometer fraud. Carfax also offers a free way to check a car’s odometer history on its website.
