Of ‘killer’ performance cars and irresponsible drivers

By
A botched lane change in Japan led to this pricey pileup of eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini and three Mercs.

Yes, there are cars out there that were built, it seemed, to kill their drivers. No, we’re not talking about poorly built cars here. In fact, the cars involved are top-of-the-line performance rides, the best in their class as well as the envy of those who just can’t afford them.

Before the “Jingle Bells,” “Silver Bells,” “Carol of the Bells” and “Come on, Ring Those Bells” again become out of season, it would be wise to prepare ahead of the worst of the 2012 holiday traffic. Think of the city streets during Christmas season as a fat-clogged heart, where road users are like blood flowing to and from the diseased organ. Where the arteries have been clogged with fatty cholesterol after years and years of eating pork, beef, chicken and other LDL-laden foods, normal blood flow is slowed down and, at worst, grinds to a complete stop. Now that’s another set of bells tolling. The same logic can be applied to traffic: Lifetimes of selfish habits have led to chaotic road conditions on urban streets, and try as they might, our heroic traffic enforcers are rendered powerless by a problem that has become systemic.

The skinny on myths about flood driving

By
A PICKUP truck is not an amphibian and, like an SUV, can be prone to water damage.

I just recently celebrated my birthday, which means it’s the rainy season. On a bad year, either a volcano erupted or a major earthquake happened somewhere but usually just heavy rain, which nevertheless keeps everybody from leaving the party. Since rains and floods are already here, it’s time to debunk some driving in the flood myths.
