    A Comparative Analysis of Brake Consumption between Highway and City Driving & Different Age Groups
    This paper analyzes the relationship between brake usage and driving road conditions or brake usage and driver’s age. The study would help customers who have questions about their brakes. This research paper analyzes the effect of brake thickness depending on driving conditions and age groups in the Empire Hyundai by using a naturalistic observational study. It is like a cohort study, but we did not have control groups. The data was naturally collected from the vehicles and technicians. A total of 60 respondents (Hyundai service center customers) were selected for the study purposes and the recruitment period was from Sep 1st, 2022 to Oct 21st, 2022. Questionnaires were used to distinguish customers into different groups. The statistical tool computed quantitative data analysis, two-sample t-test, and Chi-square test analysis. The analysis indicates that there is no significant relationship between brake usage and road condition (Highway vs Local) in New York City, and also the mean of milage at the first brake pad replacement between the highway groups and local groups have no significant differences.

    Red Light Camera Program: Does it Create Safer Intersections?
    (2022-06-01) Peter Manitaras
    Does the Red Light Camera Program for roadway intersections employ safer roadways? This report seeks to understand the attributes of the Red Light Camera (RLC) Program and conclude whether it is beneficial to society's dangerous roadway intersections or becomes another means for government revenue. A study was conducted within Suffolk County, NY to analyze the behavioral characteristics of motorists at 100 active RLC intersections, comparing data from a 3 year "Pre-Enforcement Period" (2007-2009) to a 3 year "Active-Enforcement Period" (2015-2017). The study contains data within 3 categories to significantly understand the effects RLCs impose at intersections: total number of collisions per intersection, total number of collisions based on Collision Type, and total number of collisions based on Crash Severity. The reported values in each category is analyzed and compared to projected values to provide an in-depth accurate conclusion. Finally, a total revenue is calculated to indicate the amount of money Suffolk County, NY obtained utilizing the RLC Program.

    Study of Consumer’s Perception towards Adoption of eCommerce (online shopping and e­banking) in Kathmandu Valley among corporate workers in the post­pandemic.
    (2022-05) Thapa, Sarita
    This paper analyzes the customer perception of corporate workers towards adopting eCommerce (online shopping and e-banking) in Kathmandu Valley, considering age, gender, education, and birthplace as demographic variables in the post-outbreak COVID-19 pandemic. The study shows that COVID-19 highlights the need for digital transformation due to the change in customer needs. The pandemic world strongly enforces the enhanced digital transformation, which benefits businesses or organizations. This study integrates the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA), Diffusion of Innovation (DOI) and Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) as a practical implication for the analysis of the study. Descriptive and causal research designs are adopted for this study. A total of 60 respondents (corporate workers) of the Kathmandu Valley were selected for study purposes. Likert scale questionnaires were used to gather information about their perception of e-commerce. Reliability is measured using Cronbach’s Alpha Test. The statistical tool computed descriptive analysis, independent t-test/ANOVA, correlation, and linear regression analysis. The study explains the customer perception of adopting e-commerce services based on perceived usefulness, ease of use, and risk. The analysis indicates that perceived usefulness and ease of use influence and has a statistically significant relationship with the adoption of e-commerce. In contrast, perceived risk is statistically non-significant and does not influence the adoption of e-commerce
