Beijing faces overcrowded roads and pollution that are constantly getting worse. Why? According to city officials, it’s because of ride-sharing services, including Uber.
In Austin, Texas, honor is taken seriously. As any Austintonian can tell you, traditions are strong. Traditions like the ancient and venerated art of solving mild traffic disputes with a ritualistic bat-and-pole fight, just like these two noble morons did Monday morning, at least according to a Tweeted video of the…
Thousands of people in Kentucky learned a very valuable lesson about cars and snow on Saturday: do not mix them.
Hell has already broken loose in our nation’s capital with a tiny dusting of snow and (more significantly) ice patches covered area roads. Crashes, hours of traffic standstills and people abandoning their cars are being reported. The horror!
We’re on the heels of Christmas and New Year’s, which means you can expect the roads to be packed. Waze has predicted the best and worst days to travel over the next couple of weeks.
Vidal Valladares Navas of Houston did something unthinkably selfish and moronic to propose to girlfriend Michelle Wycoff on Sunday: according to news reports, he blocked traffic on I-45—one of the busiest roads in the nation—to pop the question. Sorry, but if this is your method of proposing to a lady, I hope she…
In a big city, you’re lucky if you can find a parking spot, let alone a pretty road. It’s not easy, but these ten urban centers have got it figured out.
A few weeks ago LA unveiled a sweeping new transportation vision for the city that will swap car-centric planning with more transit, biking, and walking. But a different plan says getting people out of their cars is not the solution. What we really need, are more places for those cars to go. UNDERGROUND.
A topless woman was seen walking in the center lane of the Bay Bridge near Treasure Island Wednesday night, slowing traffic and raising questions.
We all loathe sitting in traffic, but usually there’s no way to get around it. Just be thankful you probably don’t have to spend your time navigating gridlock in one of these ten cars.
Hell. Pain. Agony. Anger. Madness. To the point where you just start punching your steering wheel and try to rip off your car’s roof and scream until your forehead and neck veins burst and then cry like a crazy person. That’s what it must feel like going through this insane traffic jam just outside of Beijing, China.…
Since 2007, there has been a steady decrease in traffic deaths year over year. A new report by The National Safety Council claims that trend has reversed, with traffic-related deaths dramatically increasing over last year in just the first six months of 2015. What happened?
Can you say a cop is ‘undercover’ when they’re holding a sign announcing exactly who they are and what they’re doing? Maybe, if the sign is scrawled on cardboard, the officers are out of uniform, standing by an off-ramp, and everyone’s brain is conditioned to read people like that as homeless? The San Bernadino Police…
I started a new job two weeks ago and now have to drive through the city to get to and from the office. This is a new concept for me as my commute for the past 4 years has been 15 minutes, tops, so a 30+ mile jaunt on Boston’s packed highways was more than a slight deviation. The good news is that I have not gone…
Forget hogging the fast lane — this dude got fined for clogging up the middle lane.
You might think you know the rules of the road, but misinformation can spread like wildfire. From getting out of a ticket to making excuses for speeding, it’s time to clear up some traffic misconceptions once and for all.
New York City introduced a 25 mile per hour speed limit a little while back, in the quest to reduce pedestrian fatalities. But now, politicians that had even fought for the new limit are now pushing back, because it inevitably has made some streets more dangerous than they were before.
Waze works by requiring its users to manually report what they see on the road: traffic jams, potholes, speed traps. Now the City of Los Angeles will ask its Wazers to be vigilant about reporting one more thing: The vehicles possibly involved in hit-and-run collisions.
Watching a small animal elude grown men is always hilarious. Seeing people run around on an active highway feels... ominous. I can't decide whether to giggle or cringe watching this.
So Paris is rolling out an ambitious plan to ban older cars from its city center. I actually think it's an interesting experiment in traffic and smog control. But what if you're a sexy, interesting person who drives a classic Citroën DS? Then you're in luck!
