AutoComplete: Sorry, Uber, New York City is capping ride-hailing registrations
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
Unsurprisingly, ride hailing services are a big deal in New York.
Statistics say that there are around 100,000 vehicles being used for Uber, Lyft, etc.
in the five boroughs, and also unsurprisingly, that's causing traffic problems.
New York is ordering a halt on new ride share vehicle registrations until it completes a one year study on the effect that these services are having on cab drivers, traffic, and other stuff.
The new Toyota Avalon may not be the prettiest thing on four wheels, but hey at least it's super safe according to the IIHS.
The 2019 model earned the IIHS's top safety pick plus by breezing through all of it's crash tests.
Headlight affecting this test and by having superior crash prevention technology.
Considering that the Avalon was designed, engineered and built in the US, I'd say, go us.
Great news for your grandparents.
The new Lexus ES is coming and it's reasonably priced.
You can pick one up starting at just under 40 grand and it'll be cheap to own, too, thanks to its stellar 45 miles per gallon if you splurge on the ever so slightly more expense hybrid version.
The ES grill is still hideous but everything else looks pretty good and it's a real peach to drive compared to earlier versions, according to our own Chris Welker.
