The incident comes 10 days after an attack on a bus carrying Nepali security guards working for the Canadian embassy in Kabul that killed 14 people.

In April, at least 64 people were killed by a Taliban attack on a security services facility in Kabul in the deadliest bombing of its kind in Afghanistan since 2011.

Stressing on Safety to Provide Sense of Security- CARHP.

CARHP is a forthcoming startup catering to the US automobile market. It serves as an online automobile information site that provides  in-depth car reviews, ratings, comparisons and local listings for new and old cars.

CARHP is in its beta stage, however, their inventory already boasts a collection of over 2000 car reviews from 2016 to present.

CARHP is funded and incubated by Collegedunia.com – India’s premier college search portal.  The team brings together young talent that is passionate about automobiles, and relevant industry experience in content, data and digital marketing.

A marvelous dealership experience wouldn’t be sufficient for building a good relationship with the prospective buyers. An increasing number of vehicle buyers spend a considerable amount  of time on online research. In-depth car reviews published by CARHP use a unique approach to inform the users about their prospective buy. The car that is being reviewed is stacked against four closely matched competitors. In-depth tables which list out specifications are used along with reviews that accurately pit the car against the competition.

An article by Business Insider states the increasing problem of distracted driving as young drivers are always into their smartphones. Consequently, automobile safety features become very important as manufacturers increasingly stress on autonomous safety technology. CARHP particularly understands safety concerns and focuses on them providing detailed safety ratings and reviews by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety which are top safety agencies in the US. With these safety reviews we want our audience to have a sense of security when they are buying a car.

CARHP will reserve special space and attention for vehicles that are environment friendly. A report from United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mentions that transportation accounted for the largest portion of total U.S. GHG emissions in 2016. All vehicles that use renewable energy sources significantly reduce the carbon footprint and ease the demand on consumption of fossil fuels as primary energy source. At CARHP we advocate for usage of such vehicles in a extensive manner.
