Hostile vehicle mitigation | Public Website

Vehicle-borne threats range from vandalism to sophisticated or aggressive attack by determined criminals or terrorists. The mobility and payload capacity of a vehicle offers a convenient delivery mechanism for a large explosive device, although the vehicle itself may be used as a weapon. This section contains guidance that will help practitioners determine the vehicle-borne threat, assess site strengths and vulnerabilities, and identify suitable options for Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) measures.

Determining the type of vehicle-borne threat being faced

When specifying the nature of the vehicle-borne threat it is important to understand:

  • Modus Operandi (MO) – this includes parked, penetrative, encroachment, deception and duress or a combination of attack methods including surreptitious and forcible attack on the barrier with hand tools or explosives
  • Threat vehicle(s) – unmodified road vehicles with specific characteristics – mass, speed and structure, as well as vehicle specific capabilities
  • Blast effect – especially if considering VBIED attack

Vehicle Classification Information – New York State Thruway

Vehicle Classification Information

Vehicle classification is based on the height of the vehicle over the first two axles and the total number of axles, including any towed vehicles or trailers.  Vehicles under 7 feet 6 inches in height are considered “LOW” (L).  Vehicles 7 feet 6 inches in height or greater are considered “HIGH” (H).

The total number of axles plus the height designation equals the vehicle class as shown in the table (Figure 1) below. The diagram (Figure 2) below shows approximate vehicle heights in relation to the toll booth. Diagram (Figure 3) below shows examples of axle counts on various vehicles.   Example: Most two-axle passenger vehicles are Class 2L.

Helpful information can also be found in the Frequently Asked Questions. (Discount applies to E-ZPassNY accounts only).

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

“Does the job”

As simply a bike pack, assuming there was not phone display, I would rate this product 2 stars. The three attachment straps are all much too long for my road bike, so I had to customize them a little bit. Assuming you have some very amateur skill
