Do you know what to do in the state of Florida if there is a law official or emergency vehicle pulled off on the side of the road? Even if you do, a lot of other drivers don’t and that is why the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has dedicated the month of January to raising awareness for the Move Over Law. Although the Move Over Law has been in place since 2002, many drivers don’t know about it or don’t know the details regarding it.

The Move Over Law states:

‘17 Dodge Vehicles Receive 5-Star Overall Safety Rating

Miami Lakes Dodge Vehicles NHTSA

Safety is one of the most important features in a car. Even with the most fuel-efficient engine, or the coolest, smartest technology, without safety, an automobile is a potentially dangerous transportation method. That’s why auto manufacturers strive to not only put lots of fancy and alluring features in their vehicles, but they’re constantly looking for ways to improve safety. An auto brand that’s amping up its safety this year is Dodge.

When it comes to measuring a vehicle’s safety, there are two main organizations that the public trusts – the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Both organizations deliver safety ratings and sometimes full reports on the safety features of an automobile.

Will Dodge Return to the NASCAR Race Track?

Miami Lakes Dodge Nascar

Back in 2009 there were quite a few teary-eyed individuals when Dodge announced its departure from NASCAR. Since the late 1950’s, Dodge has been placing cars in the NASCAR races, but the end of an era came and went. Now in 2016, it seems Dodge might be ready to bite back and jump into another race. At the moment, it’s skeptical because information is based on interviews and news sources, but it has many people excited.

Dodge originally left NASCAR due to the company facing a major possibility of going bankrupt, something that seems far-fetched today. Especially with how quickly the last Vipers sold out and the rumors that the model might return again. According to multiple reports, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO, Sergio Marchionne, reminds fans and viewers of this instance and why Dodge pulled out of the races. Now, the company is in a better standing and the possibility of returning to NASCAR is large.

Miami Lakes Dodge Most Loved Vehicles

It’s the end of the year and many awards are being given to some of the best vehicles on the street. One of which is delivered by Strategic Vision, an organization that annually releases the Consumer Love Index (CLI), an index that measures how much owners love their new vehicle after 90 days of ownership. Recently, Dodge received this award for three of its vehicles and one vehicle received a special award from ALG, the industry benchmark for providing residual value.

Full-Size Car – Dodge Charger

The Dodge Charger appeared on the Strategic Vision’s list, and how could it not? Many people love their charger, it’s a muscle-car and a sedan all rolled into one. That means it has just as much performance as it has comfort and convenience. With four engine options, including the 707-hp supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat engine, it’s one of the fiercest vehicles on the road. Plus, it has a fuel economy of 31 highway mpg and a driving range of over 570 miles.

Performance, Safety and Tech in the Dodge Charger Pursuit

New police vehicles, Dodge Charger Pursuit

In 2006, Dodge shook up one of the most niche segments in the auto industry — police vehicles. As it stands today (almost ten years later), Dodge’s police vehicle, the Dodge Charger Pursuit is by far the most popular law enforcement vehicle on America’s roads.  It all makes sense though, our brothers and sisters in blue need a vehicle that offers dependability, quick acceleration, technology and most importantly, safety, and the Dodge Charger Pursuit offers all of that.


The most important thing a police vehicle needs to be is safe and the Dodge Charger Pursuit has safety in spades. Both the all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive 2017 Dodge Charger models earned five-star overall safety ratings from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration. Not only does the Charger have a solid and secure body and plenty of airbags but there is plenty of preventative safety tech, like Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus and autonomous braking.
