How to Master Parallel Parking, Explained in One Easy Chart

For many people, attempting to parallel park into a tight spot can be an extremely nerve-wracking experience. The problem, more often than not, is that most folks are bombarded with all sorts of parallel parking tips, hacks, and guidelines which, taken together, often results in a confusing, if not intimidating, mess. What’s more, because parallel parking skills are rarely stressed during driver’s ed, most drivers are forced to learn on their own through trial and error.

Samsung See Through Truck

Samsung’s Insane New See-Through Truck Will Blow Your Mind

Samsung’s Insane New See-Through Truck Will Blow Your Mind

Well this is downright clever. Samsung is developing a ‘see through’ truck that will enable vehicles traveling behind large trucks to see what the traffic in the opposite lane is like in real-time. This is accomplished by fitting trucks with a night-vision enabled and wireless video camera in the front and transmitting the footage to a large display on the back. The underlying goal is to help drivers keen on passing slow moving trucks make more informed decisions in moments where a rash decision could prove deadly.

Slow left lane drivers, it’s time to speed up or pay the dawdle tax

A study of road rage conducted by GfK on behalf of Expedia revealed that left lane drivers who are driving below the speed limit are the third top reason to get other drivers’ blood boiling, right after texting while driving and tailgating.

License Plate Funny

The DMV recently declared the license plate ‘370H55V’ to be obscene – can you guess why?

If you’re lucky enough to be able to afford a Lamborghini, it doesn’t necessarily follow that you have carte blanche to come up with any type of vanity license plate your heart desires.

While typical objections to license plate permutations typically focus on overtly offensive words, a Texas man named Safer Hassan recently learned the hard way that even obfuscating an alleged obscenity might leave you with a revoked plate.

Watch a $250,000 Lamborghini Huracán crash at 200 mph

We are taught to drive safely long before we actually have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a car, but for some hardheaded individuals, the education simply doesn’t stick. That appears to be the case for the driver of this Lamborghini Huracan, which can be seen exceeding 330 kilometers per hours (205 mph) before smashing into the traffic barrier and flying off the road.

Glow in the Dark Roads

Never miss a turn again with glow-in-the-dark roads

Never miss a turn again with glow-in-the-dark roads

Dan Roosegaarde is tired of our stagnant pavement. Our roads have remained unchanged for decades, which inspired Roosegaarde and his team at Studio Roosegaarde to innovate in the form of glow-in-the-dark road markings. Wired.co.uk has drawn our attention to these fluorescent markings, which have replaced the prototypical street lights over a 500m stretch of highway in the Netherlands, providing a cost-efficient alternative that doesn’t require electricity and looks pretty amazing to boot.

Winter Tires Studs

This might be the best thing to happen to cars since the invention of headlights

This might be the best thing to happen to cars since the invention of headlights

Anyone in the Northeastern United States right now (or anywhere else that might be getting hammered by snow) knows how much of a pain it can be to drive during and after a blizzard. There’s ice everywhere, mounds of snow to drive around or over, and you have to fight your way through it all while other drivers who are less careful slide around the roads. Winter tires can definitely help, but buying them and having them put on your car is a pricey proposition that many people don’t want to deal with or simply can’t afford.

But what if there was a better way? More →
