    A Crisis

    A Crisis

    It started off as a normal day. I woke up, got ready for school, grabbed my keys and started my car, picked up one of my close friends from her house right up the street, then we went down the same street to pick up another friend. Soon, the three of us headed to school; what I hadn’t realized was that I needed gas. When I did realize it, we decided to stop by for gas. If I had known what it would bring, I would’ve let it run out instead.

    How to Protect Your Family Before the Accident Happens

    Car accidents are called “accidents” for a reason. Often, an accident is beyond your control. Often we get in the car without a second thought as to how fast things could go wrong. Humans make mistakes, and unfortunately mistakes on the road can often lead to injury or death. There are ways to prevent getting into an accident, and though the safety of you and your family is still not a guarantee, hopefully these things can help lessen the risks.

    Crossover SUVs - The Family Car of the 21st Century

    Crossover SUVs - The Family Car of the 21st Century

    According to Wikipedia, as of 2006, more than half of SUVs sold in the United States of America have been of the “crossover” variety. A crossover SUV, also sometimes referred to as simply a “crossover” or occasionally shortened to a “CUV,” is typically a cross between a sedan and a truck-based sport utility vehicle, or SUV. Most often, crossover SUVs are modeled after the body type of a truck-based SUV with the chassis or unibody construction of a sedan. This design generally makes for a significantly more comfortable interior when compared to their truck-based SUV counterparts, however crossovers are known to have less off road capabilities and in many cases are not manufactured with an option for all wheel drive.

    Electric Car Diaries Volume 1: Range Anxiety

    One morning over hot coffee, I hopped on the VW website to look at the Golf Alltrack. My parents suggested it because it would be perfect for transporting two big dogs. It would also be great for Canadian winters. On the home page of the VW site at the time was a giant banner showing an e-Golf. It was a complete surprise that VW is selling an all-electric car. I clicked on the link and fell in love. One thing led to another. Within a couple of weeks, we test drove one at the Guelph VW dealership and ordered mine the same day.

    Ride-share services have become quite the norm. People would much rather call an Uber or Lyft driver than an old fashioned taxi. However, Uber specifically does not do a background check on their employees or meet them for an interview prior to hiring them (currently). The requirements Uber drivers need to meet are not steep, and most people with a car that was made in the last decade can apply and expect to be hired. But how safe really are these ride-share services? You decide.

    New or Used? What You Need To Know Before Buying Your Family Car

    New or Used? What You Need To Know Before Buying Your Family Car

    The benefit of purchasing a fresh new vehicle is you buy a vehicle that usually comes with a certainty. In the first few years, most fresh vehicles will have very few renovations, so you can only concentrate on vehicle servicing. The retailer may also give reduced interest rate funding, which may lower the quantity of interest you receive over the loan's lifetime. These are the most fundamental benefits. Another benefit is that the new vehicles will be equipped with the recent technology, meaning you can discover vehicles with further gas mileage and reduced emissions.

    When we think of sports, rarely do we bring up sports that require vehicles as the main tool. In fact, most of us only think of the so-called "Big Four" sports that include the MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL. However, the reality of the situation is that there are far more sports that require amazing vehicles as the main attraction. For that matter, these vehicle sports branch out in a way that the main sports simply do not. In addition to this, these sports are only getting more popular on a global scale. In fact, one of these sports holds an annual event that brings in millions of dollars in revenue in just that one event. As we can see, this is the pinnacle of sports that require vehicles. Nonetheless, the others are just as entertaining. Also, let's not forget how incredible the vehicles being used for these sports are.

And that is the fact that as far as scams are concerned, there are many services out there who have honed the fine art of taking people for a ride for several years on end. This, in turn, has made it extremely difficult for most people out there to be able to tell the difference between the genuine services from the fake ones. Yes, as much of a bleak outcome as that may be, it is unfortunately true. As long as enough people out there are aware of this fact, there is always hope. Don’t ever forget that the main priority is always awareness in any form.

Like many others, I was at home watching the race, but I was dismayed to see so many empty grandstand seats at a track that used to sell out for every race. And we aren't talking just a few seats. At both ends of the track, the grandstands were closed off. There was no one sitting in those areas. Even along the straight stretches, there were a lot of noticeable gaps. No one seems to know exactly how many people were there, as Forbes reports.
