Battle of the Sexes: Car Edition

It’s no secret, men and women come from 2 different worlds. Even when it comes to vehicles, each gender has a specific preference of what car they would consider buying—everything down to the color. Basically, men like big, fast cars from the USA while women prefer safe and sporty vehicles from across the sea—which really, anyone could have guessed. But why the difference? Men buy more status symbol vehicles while women don’t want a vehicle that will dominate their lives. As it has been surveyed that men are the primary consumers for high end vehicles as well as trucks (despite the brand), you can note that males that do buy those vehicles have a strong connection to it. They don’t just drive it, they take c...

Today's Iconic Cars From Movies

Iconic vehicles from fan favorite films and tv are often met with nostalgia; simply mentioning vehicles like the DeLorean (Back to the Future), Batmobile (Batman circa 1955), and Dodge Charger (Dukes of Hazzard) are often met with cult status enthusiasm.

Dog Training: How to Drive a Car

Man’s best friend is now being trained as possibly man’s best driver. As a potential (and somewhat surreal) incentive for adoption, the Auckland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has been training rescue dogs how to drive a car. While it may seem a bit peculiar, the canine family has always been recruited in other human assist activities—leading the blind, working with law enforcement—and as it turns out, dogs are just as capable of driving a vehicle. The Auckland SPCA had trained a group of cross-breed rescue d...

Driving Activites That Can Be Illegal in the Future

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 30 years since it was mandatory for car passengers to wear a seatbelt. It’s even harder to believe that such a task—one that is undoubtedly simple and effective—needed to be enforced as a law. Today, there are several laws which have actually kept up with the times, e.g. the use of texting on a phone while driving leading to fines. However, there is a grey area—things that an average driver could do while driving that can be potentially dangerous but isn’t illegal. Here are three things that drivers may no longer be able to do in the near future: ...

Cars for First Time Drivers

You probably wouldn’t let a novice driver—perhaps your freshly licensed teenager—take out the Mercedes or BMW for the night out with some friends. Unless your kid showed some serious car driving prodigy potential, there are plenty of other vehicle options for first-time drivers. What makes a good first car? Teenagers will focus on the look of the car (obviously) with an emphasis of style, color and cool factor—throw in a decent sound system with some electronics to dock their smart phone and their set. Parents however, look past the look of the car (obviously) and focus on miles per gallon, safety, and price. Here are some cars that both parties can agree on. ...
