Buying and Maintaining a Car | State of California – Department of Justice

Buying and Maintaining a Car

Buying a car – whether new or used – is one of the biggest purchases we make. It is important to take your time in deciding which car to buy and not be pressured by anyone who simply wants your money or your signature on a contract. Once you decide on the vehicle that best fits your needs and budget, shop around for the best price, know the vehicle’s history (if used), and be prepared to walk away from the deal if your questions are not being answered. Before you buy or lease a vehicle:

  • Know the value of the vehicle by checking vehicle pricing guides, newspaper ads, the Internet, or by comparison shopping. Popular publications include the National Automobile Dealers Association’s (NADA) Guides, Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book, and Consumer Reports. Some may charge for this information.
  • Always read and understand your purchase contract. Carefully

bicyclists on highway with a car passing them

Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are all responsible for safety on Montana’s roadways. Whether driving, bicycling, or walking, everyone must take care, because a collision with a motor vehicle and a bicycle or pedestrian is often deadly.


Here are some tips to safely share the road:


Motorists: Avoid distractions while driving and watch for cyclists and pedestrians, including when entering or exiting parking spaces. Watch for pedestrians and yield to them when they are crossing at uncontrolled intersections or marked crosswalks. When turning, it’s also important to look for bicyclists and pedestrian who may be crossing the street at those intersections.


Bicyclists: Avoid distractions while riding. Increase your visibility by wearing bright colored clothes and use reflective materials and bike lights. Be predictable and use hand signals when changing lanes, stopping and turning. Obey all the same traffic laws as a motor

The Department of Transportation Just Gave Airline Stocks 3 Huge Wins

After President Trump signed the $2 trillion coronavirus relief package into law on March 27, executives from the top passenger airlines like Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV)Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL), and American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL) probably breathed sighs of relief. After all, the new law gave them $25 billion in bailout funds to help maintain payroll and another $25 billion in loans earmarked for the industry. 

But three days later, they likely got nervous again, as the Treasury Department issued guidelines for companies that receive that money. In particular, a rule requiring recipients to maintain existing levels of service had some industry insiders worried that they’d have to continue operating expensive empty or near-empty flights to qualify.

Luckily, on March 28, the U.S. Department of Transportation weighed in with new guidelines, which ought to make the airlines — and their investors — relieved again (well, as much as possible
