LOS ANGELES, Dec. 28, 2020 -- More than 70 photorealistic dinosaurs are ready and raring to return from extinction to invade Southern California in the New Year. The Jurassic Quest Drive Thru, the nation's largest touring dinosaur exhibit, will migrate to four Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego-adjacent destinations after welcoming legions of guests to sold-out weekends across the country:

• OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa: Feb. 5-14

The Jurassic Quest Drive Thru will transform the outdoor parking areas of these iconic SoCal venues into an interactive drive-thru experience, featuring more than 70 moving and life-like dinosaurs, as well as our 50 foot-long Megalodon! Jurassic Quest's herd of animatronic dinos are displayed in realistic scenes that allow guests to experience them roaring and moving as they drive through the tour. Although the drive-thru experience means visitors will stay safe inside their vehicle, they'll still need to avoid the swinging tail of our 80 foot-long Spinosaurus!

AAA Commends NHTSA and DOT on Commitment to Protecting First Responders at the Roadside

WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 18, 2020) -- AAA commends Senators Duckworth, Durbin, Fischer and Representative Bustos for their request of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to review the effectiveness of Move Over laws. We are not surprised by the report’s findings that there is a lack of traffic data related to Move Over law violations, low public awareness of laws and a glaring absence of resources available to assist state officials in raising awareness of the laws. However, we are encouraged by and commend the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation for their commitments to rectify these shortfalls through an expansion of data collection and an investment in forthcoming studies and investigations.

Volvo Cars Imagines the Future of Autonomous Drive by Tapping Into Origins of Human Communication

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Dec. 22, 2020 - Volvo Cars has established itself as one of the leaders in autonomous drive development, following its announcement earlier this year that its next generation of cars will be available as hardware ready for the technology from production start.

At the same time, the company is also looking further into the future, considering how autonomous cars will communicate with other road users in a driverless world. This research looks beyond current Highway Pilot plans, which aims to have cars drive safely on their own on chosen areas of highway that Volvo has verified as safe. To design this future, however, Volvo's experts are seeking inspiration from the past.

"We make no secret about the fact that we see autonomous drive as the real long-term solution to avoid car accidents and to achieve traffic safety," says Mats Moberg, Senior Vice President of R&D at Volvo Cars. However, as is always the case at Volvo Cars, safety is the first concern.

The Volvo 360c autonomous concept car, unveiled in 2018, provides one possible avenue of future development. It explores the type of safety-focused communication Volvo Cars believes will be essential to cars of the future when it comes to sharing the road with other road users, including other vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. The design for the 360c explores a combination of external sounds, lights, and even subtle movements to communicate the vehicle's intentions to other road users.
