Here’s proof that women love men who love trucks

There are three things that every woman thinks about when she’s considering going out with someone on a blind date:

  • What do they look like?
  • What do they do for a living?
  • What kind of car do they drive?

For better or for worse, whether their potential mate drives a car or not is of some level of significance to women to the point that it’s one of the leading questions that are asked about said dating partner.

How To Travel

How the weather will affect your commute

What’s your daily commute looking like these days?

If you’re like most people, your commute is in the 15-30 minute range.  Most people want to live near where they work in order to maximize their home time and not spend their day merely sitting in their car in traffic.

Texting while driving is dangerous. So is this…

Do you know what the texting-while-driving laws are where you live?

What about in states that you don’t live in, but travel to frequently?

Right – so you may know what you can or can’t do in the car in your own home state, but since these rules are so random, it’s hard to know what you should be aware of when you’re just passing through.

Why you shouldn’t keep your pet in your car

Do you drive your dog around each weekend?

Is your dog the kind that travels with its head out the window, sniffing as the world goes by?  Or is your dog a bit more casual – sitting comfortably in the passenger seat and napping?

Or are you the kind of driver who insists on driving with your dog sitting in your lap (and possibly getting in the way of the airbag, should it be needed in an emergency situation)?

How big is the average parking space in a parking lot?

One of the perils of living in suburbia is having to drive everywhere you go to reach your desired destination.  Public transit is not an option for you.

So when it comes time to travel to The City for dinner and a movie, families in the Giant Mom-mobile are often stuck trying to find an adequate parking space for their larger-than-it-needs-to-be vehicle.


The number one reason people hate buying a new car

When was the last time you purchased a car (whether it be new or used)?

Chances are, unless you’re in a sales job with a company-provided vehicel, you’re not one of those people who go out and buy a car every two years.

Maybe it’s because the car buying experience is not something that we do every day that we approach the process with a bit of hesitation and apprehension..


Singing in the car can lead to accidents

Driving experts had long believed that when you are on a long road trip and feeling a bit groggy behind the wheel, there were a few things that you could try to keep your mind focused on the task at hand.

  • Rolling down the window, letting fresh air into the car
  • Turning on the air conditioner rather than keeping the heat on
  • Singing along with the radio

Well, it ends up that one of the above may kill you.


What do 76% of adults do while driving their car?

Everyone likes to think of themselves as a good driver.

So ask your friends the next time you’re at a party: how many people have ever gotten into an accident?  Caused an accident?  Gotten a speeding ticket?

Got the speeding ticket for the highest speed over the limit?

You’d be surprised to hear all these driving horror stories from your friends, yet they would still consider themselves “good drivers”.

How surprised should you be?  If your friends are anything like those in a recent survey – 99% of those surveyed all believe that they’re good drivers.

And yet there are a lot of idiots out on the road.  We can’t all be great drivers, can we?
