Petition to Toyota Motor Company

Offer the Toyota Land Cruiser in the USA with diesel engines.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is not selling well in the united states due to poor fuel economy. Toyota is going to cancel the land cruiser in 2022 due to poor sales. I know people who love land cruisers and use them for off-roading and not breaking down. We need to show Toyota a better solution to the land cruiser. I guarantee that once Toyota starts offering the 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 in the states then Land Cruiser will sell like the hottest of hotcakes. Just like in the rest of the world. If Mazda can offer a Cx-5 diesel for the states which Mazda already has been for months now then there is no excuse why Toyota can't do the same with the Land Cruiser (and the LX too since it is the same vehicle). Plus it will give shops like DieselToys down in San Antonio, TX easier access to parts for their factory spec Toyota diesel conversions. And it will even benefit the biodiesel industry so people can stop worrying about pollution from fracking since biodiesel does not come fracking. Everyone wins from this regardless if you believe in climate change. Plus unlike electric cars. Diesel engines can start even during power outages. I understand people don't like diesel especially after Volkswagen ruined it more but we can't just sit there and let Volkswagen define diesel nor just sit there and accept the thirsty gas/petrol engines destroying the Land Cruisers Legacy.

Audi SF: Protect Our Children and Elderly / Protege Nuestros Niños y Los Ancianos

(El español en la parte de abajo) Our neighbors want to live with no risk of traffic violence from drivers on our streets. Since 2004, the sales team at the Audi San Francisco (300 S Van Ness, 94103) dealership have been abusing our public space, making our neighborhood more dangerous and more unpleasant. They are a clear example of a corporation bullying their way to profits with no regard for the impact on the people in their surroundings.  Neighbors have experienced or seen Audi sales team members: Speeding near children, elderly, disabled folks, and adults on 14th Street, Minna Street, Natoma Street, Mission Street, South Van Ness, and Division Streets Parking illegally in the red zone, disabled parking, on the sidewalk and constantly not paying the meters in up to 8 parking spots Driving the wrong way illegally down Minna Street Using physical violence towards traffic enforcement and neighbors  Verbally harassing disabled neighbors who park in the disabled parking spot on South Van Ness and possibly abusing the disability placard system (~4 of the 10 sales team members have a disability placard, which seems like a high percentage) Using verbal threats towards residents who park or request for them to drive at slow speeds Smoking in front of residences  Littering on the street When residents have attempted to request for changes from the Audi dealership sales folks and owner, they have been met with dismissal and refusal that a problem exists. Audi SF Sales Manager and self-proclaimed decision maker has said "when [someone dies] here, we will revisit" their dangerous behavior. See video here. We demand that Audi SF dealership: Stop speeding & playing loud music Stop driving wrong way on Minna Street Use disabled placards for only legitimate disability cases Stop parking on sidewalk & red zone Always pay the parking meters Stop intimidating us when we park near you Stop smoking in front of residences Stop littering on the street, including cigarettes Nosotros pedimos a Audi SF que: Dejen de manejar con alta velocidad Dejen de manejar en contrasentido en calle Minna Dejen de estacionarse en la zona roja y la banqueta Deben pagar el parquímetro No acosen a los vecinos cuando nos queramos estacionar cerca de ustedes Dejen de fumar frente a las viviendas Dejen de tirar basura en la calle, incluyendo cigarillos

Bring back Group B rally

Group B rally regulations (1982-86) allowed for the most spectacular rally cars, and maximized the limits of engineering. This class of rally racing ended after a series of incidents. However, with today's technology and lessons from the past, these safety issues can be resolved, and Group B can return once again. Rally represents liberty, and inspires us to explore the land that nature gave us. The New Physiocratic League supports the return of Group B. _____________________ Wiki Entry: Group B was a set of regulations introduced in 1982 for competition vehicles in sportscar racing and rallying regulated by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The Group B regulations fostered some of the fastest, most powerful, and most sophisticated rally cars ever built and is commonly referred to as the golden era of rallying. However, a series of major accidents, some of them fatal, were blamed on their outright speed and lack of crowd control at events. After the death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Sergio Cresto in the 1986 Tour de Corse, the FIA disestablished the class, dropped its previous plans to replace it by Group S, and instead replaced it as the top-line formula by Group A. The short-lived Group B era has acquired legendary status among rally fans and automobile enthusiasts in general.
