2018-19 Volvo XC60 recalled

The manufacturer reports the tailgate lifting arms may freeze "under certain conditions in cold climates", which could also lead to an unusual noise, loss of function, or even the complete separation of the tailgate lifting arms.

NYPD calls on map app Waze to remove RBT locations

New York Police Department (NYPD) has written to Waze, one of Google's mapping services, calling for it to remove 'DWI checkpoint' locations from its app. Unlike regular Google Maps, the Waze app lets drivers report obstacles, traffic, mobile speed cameras and 'DWI checkpoints', known locally as random breath test (RBT) stops or booze buses.
