Traffic sucks, but sometimes there are interesting cars. If I’m at a dead stop, I occasionally grab a photo. I may wait to post them until I’m out of the car, but I’m not going to speed into a bus full of innocent kindergartners taking a quick pic while stationary. What about you? Do you take photos in traffic? Why or…
If you want to prove your point as to who needs an autonomous car, you can’t pick a better place than SXSW. No other weekend in Austin has more miserable traffic. I went to check out a new self-driving car downtown, and ended up wishing I was doing anything but driving in the mess that is SXSW on the way home.
If you thought you had a miserable time in traffic this morning, you’ve got nothing on the World Rally Championship.
Getting stuck in traffic for hours really sucks, but it definitely sucks less if you have access to some carne asada tacos with fresh lime.
Many of us are fortunate to drive on a nice, open highway or even a winding back road for our daily commute. Unfortunately, most of us seem to be stuck in soul-crushing traffic every day. What is the ideal car for them?
You are not imagining it: you are getting older. Your metabolism is slowing down by the hour. Your wrinkles are showing. You’re not sleeping enough. And your commute to work is genuinely getting longer.
Today, traffic app Inrix published the results of a massive year-long study of traffic around the world. At the top of the list is that beacon of automotive paradise, Los Angeles. This should come as little surprise to anyone who has ever driven in LA, mostly because they are probably reading this article on their…
The National Safety Council’s annual report on traffic deaths estimates that 40,200 people died in U.S. car crashes in 2016, which is up six percent from 2015 estimates, and a total increase of a terrifying 14 percent in just two years.
How many times have you driven across a bridge and thought, “What are the chances that this just collapsed under me?” And then you gave yourself a shake and then thought, “Nah! It’s probably structurally sound!” Well, maybe. Maaaaybe.
In countries where most people commute on scooters or motorcycles, traffic laws seem to be more of a suggestion than a rule. This scooter rider takes on a crazy first person ride that he calls “not that scary” and I almost had a heart attack.
WHAT IS THIS? A DRIVER WITH POWERS BEYOND THAT OF MERE MORTALS? A “SUPER-MAN”, PERHAPS? ARE OUR HIGHWAYS NO LONGER SAFE?
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe already gets to roll around in a sweet, possibly V12 Toyota Century, but what makes it even better is this maximum-baller way he merges into traffic. It involves at least three white-gloved guys riding halfway out of a car like a dogs on their way to the park.
Icy conditions and freezing rain hit the East Coast hard overnight. Slick roads reportedly caused over 50 traffic accidents in Virginia and the Baltimore/D.C. area was hit particularly hard.

This morning, in Jakarta, Indonesia, a chance encounter between the traffic cop most able to accept unreasonable abuse and the driver most willing to dispense unreasonable abuse happened, and, luckily for science, it was all captured on video.
Last night, the 405 in Los Angeles did what the 405 does: slowed traffic to a turtle’s pace, sending commuters into a bumper-to-bumper nightmare. But the bright side—literally—was that ABC7 captured the traffic from the sky, and all those cars squeezed together created a beautiful Christmas display.
What part of evacuate don’t you understand, people?
Having to sit at a red light is a miserable experience. There you are, trapped with your thoughts, staring at an inanimate light you let dictate your daily life. How sad is that? What are some other sad thoughts? How can I make this light turn green and escape this introspective hell? Is that guy picking his nose? He…
What seems to start out as a fairly controlled dispute between a guy on a sportbike and dude in a sedan devolves into combat when the biker smashes the car’s window with his helmet, and the driver goes after him with a hammer.
Remember that scene from the Italian Job remake where the Napster (Seth Green) hacks into LA’s traffic control center and changes all the traffic lights to suit their getaway plan? Turns out that it’s not too difficult to pull that off.
