Best Worst Exotic Car Crashes for 2009
Supercars: they are fast exotic and they are expensive.
And so, so accident-prone. To celebrate the end of 2009, Jalopnik has composed a list of the 30 most expensive car crashes of 2009 complete with pictures.
However, if you really love cars and have a weak stomach, we’d advise you to think twice about taking a look at these pics. Luckily Prince Frederick Chrysler, Jeep Dodge isn’t a Super Car Dealer. But we would like to be even for just a day.
Distracted driving in the nation as well as the Prince Frederick Dodge area is becoming a very real concern in the age of texting, cell phones, touch screen navigation and fast food. So what is a government to do to stop the madness? New laws? More police enforcement? Maybe at some point, but for now the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has created a new website called distraction.gov. The site provides facts and figures that shows how distracted driving affects your ability to drive safely while also working as a news feed for new distracted driving legislation.
You may have heard that driving while texting makes you 23 times more likely to get into an accident, but the NHTSA site gives more alarming stats. For example, the site claims that driving while talking on the phone makes you as much of a hazard as someone driving while over the legal drinking limit. The site also claims that 6,000 people died in distracted driving accidents in 2008 and that drivers using hand held devices in the car are four times as likely to seriously injure themselves in an accident. Even more disturbing is the fact that the NHTSA found distracted driving fatalities went from 8% in 2004 to 11% in 2008.
Head over to distraction.gov for more interesting info, but try not to pull up the site on your mobile while you’re on the road. And try not to get distracted by Ray LaHood’s eyebrows when you click.

You’ve clamored for it, so we acted. Here’s another color update for all you Challenger fans: Classic HEMI Orange paint is now available again for order on the R/T and SRT8 Challengers — and for R/T Classic Models, an added option of white dual wide side stripes.
But Challenger isn’t just about bringing back our best classic colors, it’s also about performance. So we’ve also brought back the Super Track Pak from the 1970s, adding in performance steering and brakes, three-season Goodyear F1 Tires, load-leveling shocks, and full-off ESP — on the five-speed automatic as well as the six-speed manual transmission. The end result, for anyone not familiar with the Super Track Pak: Your Challenger will now get around the track even quicker. Who can argue with that?
