Starting in September, Mazdas will be zooming through the port of Baltimore under a five-year deal announced Tuesday. The Japanese automaker will start shipping 65,000 new vehicles a year to the port, creating an estimated 160 new jobs, the Maryland Port Administration announced. It's new business the port of Baltimore, already the nation's top auto port, won from its East Coast rival Port Newark in New Jersey. The five-year contract is between Mazda North American Operations and Amports, the private auto processor which owns the port's Chesapeake Auto Terminal in Fairfield, port officials said.

DETROIT -- Frustrated by a union contract they consider allows management too much latitude, United Auto Workers members at Mazda's Flat Rock, Mich., plant have authorized a strike when the contract expires March 3.Nearly all of the plant's 2,900 UAW workers took part in voting last week, and 95 percent -- a big margin by UAW standards at Big Three plants -- voted to authorize a strike. UAW Local 3000 negotiated its first contract with Mazda in March 1988, when the plant had been operating just seven months, and when temporary, appointed officials were running the local.

This wasn't supposed to be Hyundai's year. It was to be the comeback year for Mazda's North American operations. With a redesigned minivan and a new SUV, Irvine, Calif.-based Mazda was finally going to make up for 14 years of lagging sales. Instead, it's South Korea's Hyundai putting huge footprints on Asian auto sales records. Sales through May are up 81 percent, to 99,930, enough to put it ahead of Mazda for the first time in the two brands' U.S. history. Mazda is up a scant 1.9 percent to 99,425.

A "perfect storm of errors" caused the city of Baltimore to issue a speed camera citation to a stationary vehicle, the Police Department's chief spokesman said Thursday. Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi acknowledged that Officer Christopher Izquierdo should not have validated the citation, which alleged that a Mazda wagon was going 38 mph even though a video clip from the camera and two time-stamped photos given as evidence clearly show the car stopped at a red light. State law requires every citation to be approved by a sworn law enforcement officer, and in the city that is the final step before a ticket is mailed out to the vehicle's owner.

Everyone should have a mom like Marie Persichilli. The retired social services worker, who lives in North Carolina, e-mailed and called for help recently after one of her 25-year-old twin daughters, both cadets in training for the Baltimore Police Department, ran into a mess of car problems. After more than a month of tackling the issue on her own as her daughters attended all-day classes at the academy, Persichilli thought she needed an assist. Little did she know, Persichilli was already a force to be reckoned with while sitting at home 450 miles away.
