The Smart Way to Stay Cool While Driving

Avoid using your AC for as long as possible. Crack a window. Park under that tree. Use your sunshade.

Once the heat is too much to handle, turn on your air conditioning.  Make sure to use the recirculation mode once it starts pumping out that cool air! This will be a lot less work on your vehicle instead of continuously trying to cool down the hot air from outside.

Top Reasons to Drive an Electric Car

From no gas prices to lowering your carbon footprint, there are many benefits to driving an electric car.  Here are the top ones:

-Never stop for gas.  Imagine never having to fill up at the station again.  Especially as those prices soar!

-Helping the environment. The U.S Department of Energy says that all electric vehicles don’t emit any pollutants from their tailpipes, so your car won’t contribute to air pollution.

-Low Maintenance.  Electric cars will never need an oil change or transmission fluid, introducing even more savings down the road.

-Tax incentives. The U.S Department of Energy says electric vehicles purchased in 2010 or later may be eligible for a federal income tax credit.

5 Most Popular Ways to get Embarrassed While Driving

We all make driving mistakes, right? But sometimes those mistakes can be extremely embarrassing!  Here are the top embarrassing driving mistakes we’ve all made.

Leaving your turn signal on - We’ve all seen this, don’t be that person!

Cutting someone off unknowingly – On the phone maybe? Confused why that person behind you is blaring their horn? This might be why!

Stopped at a green light – Either daydreaming while stopped, or slowing down approaching a green! I’m sure the noise of frustration/honking/yelling will wake you up.

Trying to parallel park – Being watched during your multiple attempts to nervously back in without hitting something.

Getting caught – Whether it be singing, dancing, picking your nose… avoid the awkward eye contact!
