Fifty years ago this month, September 1969, I took my first job in the automotive industry.

The collision industry went through many changes during the 1970s.

Most automotive and HD truck shops—mechanical and collision-repair shops—need more technicians.

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), a computer-aided means of keeping a vehicle in its lane and preventing or mitigating collisions, is a relatively new concept in the automotive world and even newer for the trucking world.
