UK crackdown: Britain is planning to enact tougher auto insurance laws, with penalties for simply owning an uninsured car. That's good news for insurance premiums, bad news for tinkerers with lawns covered in "projects". [Autocar]

Best headline of the week: We can't believe we missed this headline when we ran our Toyota story yesterday: Scion to run Toyota. Scion? Get it? ...Yeah, well, almost no one else used it either, so we don't feel so bad.

More car bling: Need something to spruce up that K Car? How about a Car Tatt? They're similar to the Infectious stickers we've mentioned before, but with a slightly more "classic tattoo" feel and a lower price point ($5 - $50 or so). No sticker shock there, right?  [via DetNews]

Egads, EDAG!: German outfit EDAG is bringing something special to the Geneva Motor Show:  a concept vehicle called the Light Car - Open Source. Yes, the name's a little buzzwordy, but with its electric powertrain, its unique usage of basaltic fiber construction, and its kooky tailgate--which can be used as a projection screen to send messages to drivers you're leaving behind--we're willing to forgive.  [WorldCarFans]

Welcome to the boat, China: According to experts, China's slumping auto market won't turn around anytime this year--despite a government-sponsored bailout plan announced Monday. We think we've heard that tune before. [Edmunds]
