Snow tires / cold pavement by Darryl
I have 4 Dayton Winterforce tires on my FWD car every winter. I know that warm pavement will wear snow tires quickly. My question is which is worse: warm or pavement? If I take the snow tires out for a 200 mile drive on dry highway pavement, but it's colder than 15 F out, how much worse is the...

This is one person's testimony: I drive a 2005 Toyota Solora. I normally get 22 mpg in the city. On my last fill up using the powder, I got 33.2 mpg in the city!! I love the powder, and wouldn't be without it! Also, I always have to fill up every 5 - 6 days, but I was able to go an extra 3...

Worst stretch of road? by Ad absurdum per aspera
Driving California 58 between Bakersfield and I-5 made me think of this: What would you nominate as the nastiest stretch of major thoroughfare (neglecting city streets and minor rural roads and inherently scenic/tourist routes) that you've driven recently? That part of 58 is quite heavily...

A New Category of Sloth by Scott en Aztlán
We have already identified several categories of Sloth, including * Sloth Mergers, the doddering ninnies who take the on-ramp at 45 MPH * Sloth Coasters, the guys who take their foot off the gas whenever they see a red light (or even a "stale green") somewhere before the horizon * Sloth Passers,...

The "Sloth Slalom" by Scott en Aztlán
Ran the Sloth Slalom course today. Staggered Sloths, each doing about 40 MPH in a 55 MPH zone, stationed in both lanes but with sufficient space for traffic wishing to drive at the speed limit to thread their way through. No doubt someone will now pipe up and say I am a "MFFY" and that I...

More Rude Drivers by C. E. White
Well I had another jerk pull a "cool" stunt on me yesterday. I was waiting at a light with two lanes of traffic turning left from one street to another. I'm in the left most lane about three cars back. There is an uber driver in BMW is in right most left turn lane behind a delivery truck. When the...

Right Lane Impatience by Larry Scholnick
We all understand how an ideal KRETP-based world would work. If there are 3 lanes in your direction of travel, the left lane would have the fastest drivers while they were passing the in-between speed drivers in the #2 lane; the #3 lane would have the slowest drivers who aren't passing anyone...

Glad they're dead and glad they just killed themselves and not others. Now the roads are safer for the rest of us.

Renting a Jetta or Passat? by John Bartley
The IIRC 'silver' rating of these sedans for protecting driver & passengers in a crash http://www.iihs.org/news/2005/pr120405.html has me looking at them to replace my '95 4Runner, which is now overkill for the driving I do these days. However, I'm fussy about cars; seating is very important, for...

Money Maker by Thomas Avery
The Milwaukee Journal yesterday reported that about 16,000 speeding tickets were issued in Milwaukee last year. Maybe their real estate taxes have been reduced as a result? HA!

The Positive Side of Sloth by Scott en Aztlán
I have to admit, Sloths aren't ALL bad. I was exiting a freeway at a notoriously crowded off-ramp. The ramp has two dedicated left turn lanes, one through traffic lane, and a dedicated right turn lane. I wanted to turn left, but the left turn lanes were significantly backed up - I would have had...
