Proper Ways to Avoid Automotive Accidents

Everyone thinks that they are a good driver. No one wants to admit that they do not always obey the road rules of safety but there are some that brag that they get away with speeding down the freeway at over 100 miles per hour in their new fast car trying to push the vehicle to its limit that speedometer says the

Toyota Auris Personal Lease is capable of going. Speeding is definitely not the way to avoid an accident. Nor is it the safest way to drive in order to protect you and your new vehicle.

The top offender of driving unsafely is the driver that has been drinking some kind of alcohol, no matter how little. Drunken drivers do cause many accident, injuries to themselves and others, damage to autos and property, and sometimes even death. It is never okay under any circumstances to drive if you have been drinking, no matter how good of a driver you think you are.

Another way to avoid having an

Toyota Auris Used Cars accident is to always keep your mind on what you’re doing. Don’t let anything distract you from your purpose of being as safe a driver as you possibly can. It is also important to be a courteous driver. If you cut in front of someone who has a bad temper you could have a road rage situation on your hands and that could cause an accident including not only yourself and the road rage driver but also other drivers in the area. A simple act of being discourteous could cause injuries and damage to property. Being an aggressive driver does nothing but cause bad situations to happen on the road where someone is surely to get hurt. It is a good idea to know how to drive defensively but not aggressively, there is a difference.

Recent laws passed in some states have made it illegal to talk on your cell phone or text messages while you’re driving. This distraction has caused many auto accidents leading to legislation regarding their use. If you get caught talking on your cell phone you will receive a citation that carries a high fee, and the more tickets you get doing so will increase the cost of the ticket. What could possibly be more important than your life? The responsible thing to do would be to pull over at the next convenient stop and return the call. If it’s a text message and you can’t wait to read it, again just pull over and stop. Never take your eyes off the road to read a message, it could cause an accident where you or your passengers are injured and your vehicle damaged.

Indianapolis Speedway – 100 Years of Automotive Innovations

For the past 100 years, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been the home for some of auto racing’s most thrilling moments. Although the news has centered on the oval action, the behind-the-scenes activity has generated its own kind of excitement. In their efforts to gain the best speed possible, the mechanics and engineers working on the race cars have created innovations that have transitioned from Pit Row onto the highway.

In fact, the first Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 1911 witnessed the initiation of the rear view mirror. At the time, a driver had an accompanying mechanic in the car, who would check on other drivers trailing the car. Driver Ray Harroun had a different idea. Instead of this extra passenger, he decided he could see the drivers himself if a mirror was bolted onto the front of his car. The weight of an extra passenger would be eliminated and then decrease wind resistance and increase the possibilities of greater speed. The idea helped Harroun become the first Indy 500 winner. Eventually the rear view mirror also sparked auto manufacturers’ interest. Today, it is standard equipment on every car.

Generally these early races were both testing grounds for new products and promotional tools. Manufacturers, such as Firestone Rubber Tire Company , could show the public how well its products performed. In the early to mid 1900’s, Firestone manufactured the same tires for both the track and the highway. The idea was to impress racing fans, who would then buy Firestone tires for their own vehicles. “Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday,” became Firestone’s business practice.

The Firestone tradition became entrenched with the 1925 Speedway win by Peter DePaolo. On the new Firestone balloon tires, DePaolo averaged 101.13 miles per hour without tire trouble. In fact, every one of the top ten racers had the balloon tires. Firestone’s triumph convinced the public that the new rubber balloon tires lasted longer. Plus, the tires proved to provide a more comfortable ride.

The balloon tires were only the start of manufacturers’ innovative efforts at the Indy Speedway. Through the years, they continued to improve tires, engines, and car bodies. Many of these innovations were then transferred to the public’s vehicles.

Today the racing industry is highly specialized with car mechanics and parts devoted strictly to the race car. However, the practice of promoting the best that a manufacturer can offer is still an important element of the Indianapolis 500 tradition.

Automotive Garages Versus Mobile Automotive Franchises

Running an automobile repair shop is not an easy thing to do, there are all kinds of laws that have to do with environmental issues, OSHA standards, and what government bureaucrats consider unsightliness that must be complied with.

Starting such a business right now is probably not a good idea because it could cost as much as a half a million dollars to buy all the lifts, secure a location, hire all the people, and do all the initial marketing. That after one has filed all the permits, gone through all the bureaucracy, and jumped through all the hoops.

This is not to say that owning it on a motor repair shop right now isn’t a good thing, it probably is considering the General Motors and Chrysler has cut so much of their auto dealerships, that it has taken out a lot of capacity out of the industry, and there is so much fewer places to get your car repaired.

Supply and demand dictates that this would be a good business to be in right now, even though the economy is down and people are trying to spend less. Still when people don’t buy new cars, they have to fix up their old cars.

Is there a solution to this problem?

What if you are one of those laid-off mechanics and you want to get into your own automobile maintenance business, but you don’t have the half a million it takes to start your own business and open a repair shop?

One idea is to set up a mobile automobile maintenance business and go to your customers. You know, there are many mobile automobile franchises available, and many of them have financing, and they don’t cost a lot of money to get into. This might just solve all the problems for you. Please consider all this.

Automotive Cleaning Tips – Car Talk

It doesn’t have to be difficult to keep your car clean and tidy. Keep these tips in mind, and you’ll be proud to drive your squeaky-clean car around town.

1. Wash at home.

Car washing is the only way for your car to get nice and shiny, so why not try washing it yourself, at home? With automated car washing, you can have the car cleaned while getting your nails done, but that will cost you.

Park the car in a shaded area and then wash it down using a hose. Start with the roof, work your way down the sides, and then to the tires. Afterwards, scrub the car with a sponge dipped in water and mild liquid soap. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

2. Take advantage of car washes.

You can drive to an automated car wash service to get your car cleaned up if you can’t be bothered to do it at home. It’s going to cost you, that’s for sure, so make sure to compare pros and cons before you go.

The good thing about automated or drive-through car wash services is they make the experience of owning a car hassle-free. You no longer have to worry about bird droppings or liquid stains or anything of the sort – simply drive over to the nearest car wash, pay for the cleaning, and drive through.

3. Tidy inside out.

The purpose of car cleaning is to prevent the car from wearing out, but there’s more to it than that. It is also about feeling good when you’re inside the car, not itchy and grimy because somebody didn’t clean the interior.

First rule of thumb is to check the seats. Bits of food and other small particles tend to get stuck between the cushions, so check those areas often. Then, sweep the floor of small stones and dirt that found their way into the car. Just remember to clean out the seats first before doing the floor and not the other way around – otherwise, you’ll need to do the floor again.

4. Use car seat covers.

One of the toughest things about owning a car is taking out the seats to have them washed. It’s a tedious job and it gets worse every time. In addition, it’s impossible not to dirty the seats, especially with children. You really need to start thinking about investing in seat covers.

With seat covers, you simply remove the covers if you have to get them washed and cleaned up. The seats remain intact. These covers protect the seats from stains and dust and all sorts of fabric damage. It doesn’t get any better than this. Seat covers will change the way you see your car.
