Tis the season for holiday travel! Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and that means a road trip to visit family and enjoy some great food. Shortly after will be Christmas and New Years, which will round out the holiday travel season.
It is likely that these services will just exacerbate the differences that already exist in the quality of public transit in different areas. The localities that invested and ran their systems well won't be as impacted. In the areas where frustration is higher, the problems will surely become worse when revenues and ridership decline.
I have been asked on a pretty regular basis over the years, "What should I look for when I go shopping for a used car?" Well there's not a right or wrong answer to that, but there are several things you can do to be much more certain you're not being taken advantage of.
It doesn't matter if you wear a suit and tie, if you break the law you will go to prison. Sending that message would make all of us safer. But we haven't been doing that consistently enough in America in recent years.
Some utility companies are starting to encourage consumers to make the switch to plug-in electric vehicles (EVs).
I don't have a running sticker on my vehicle. For me, it minimizes my accomplishments. My races were rich, vibrant, life-changing experiences that cannot be reflected in a cold, numeric, one-size-fits-all decal. Or maybe it's just my reticent personality.
I've watched my share of Judge Judy and understand that the likelihood of ending up in court increases in direct proportion to the amount of jewelry you wear, the number and placement of tattoos visible on your neck and the times you use "conversate" in a sentence. Well into my 50s and woefully lacking tattoos, I thought any potential to have a run-in with the law was well behind me. I was wrong.
Some advantages of the independent services is they can often inspect and fix cars at a lower cost than at a dealer's service bay. Additionally, they provide the convenience of a nearby location for a great many drivers, since there are fewer dealerships.
Is this really an appropriate, or necessary, gift to a pitcher who this year earned $3.75 million? If Bumgarner wants a new car, he can certainly afford to buy one, and to pick the car he really wants.
British foreign secretary Arthur Balfour allegedly claimed in the early 20th century that "the motor-car will help solve the congestion of traffic." Today's city planners must not know whether to laugh or cry at this woefully misguided prediction.
A poll last year found that nearly half of American households could purchase an EV for their next car; it would be a great fit for their driving needs, and they would have a place to charge it with electricity. We're talking about many millions of people. Are you one of them?
If you are a car lover, you have to rev up your engine at the ultra-swish Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart.
The real risks for robotic cars are the hazards that unpredictable humans create. That is why we will need to get humans out of the drivers' seats.
Because December -- and great year-end deals -- will be here before you know it, I want to share some of the strategies I learned in case you're planning to buy a new car in the next few months.
The best work any artist can muster is the kind that comes from a place where career is never the driving force, age is just a number and one's relevance means little, except to himself. And though Crenshaw is apt to file away the chapter of his earlier life of a rock and roller, it's possible that many exciting chapters lay ahead.
A few days ago, I was listening to an Italian friend of mine who was talking about one of his projects and, every now and then, he kept saying "if". If this happens, if I will do that, if things work out: a long dissertation where the "if" word was like a refrain.
