A soon-to-expire federal law that governs the country’s highway policies appears to be headed toward a yearlong extension.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), the top transportation policy authorizers on Capitol Hill, have indicated support for extending the provisions in the 2015 FAST Act highway law for a 12-month duration.

Their position comes as stakeholders across the transportation community are publicly calling for such an extension. The FAST Act expires Sept. 30.

Geely launches electric vehicle manufacturing platform

BEIJING (Reuters) – Zhejiang Geely Holding Group launched its first electric vehicle-focused platform on Wednesday, aimed at rolling out a variety of models more efficiently for both the Chinese automaker and its partners.

As the global auto industry ramps up investment in electric and high-tech vehicles, manufacturers from Volkswagen AG to General Motors Co have introduced platforms for electric vehicles (EVs).

Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) will be able to support small as well as large vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, vans and pickup trucks, Geely’s president An Conghui said at an event in Beijing.

Bicycle Brand Canyon Creates Concept Car

Nineteenth-century German bicycle company Opel morphed into a motor car maker. On September 1, Canyon of Koblenz revealed it was potentially on the same trajectory as it added a concept electric car to its roster of high-end bicycles.

The vehicle is a one-person “future mobility concept,” says the company—it can reach speeds of 37 miles per hour and travel on both roads and cycleways.

Bicycle companies transforming into car firms was commonplace in the 1890s and early years of the 20th Century—brands such as Rover, GMC, and Chevrolet had bicycling beginnings—but it’s unusual for the same to happen today.

“We don’t have any ambitions to go the next step,” said Canyon product manager Sebastian Wegerle speaking to me by video from a product unveiling in London.

“Canyon Bicycles will always be Canyon Bicycles,” agreed company founder Roman Arnold, speaking to

“The only ticketing that is going to be happening is if there is a car or other vehicle posing some kind of public safety threat. But the normal ticketing should be suspended until April 30,” she said during a March 18 news conference. “So, for example, an expired meter that is otherwise legally parked and not posing a public safety threat, you should not be getting ticketed.”

Try telling that to Michaela Spence of Bronzeville, who
