I recently got back from a weeklong vacation in Ireland, where I had my first experience in a right-hand-drive car, and had to cruise around the countryside on the left side of the road. It was weird and strange at first, but in short order, I loved it. Driving a right-hand-drive car owns.
Police in Lancashire, England, recently pulled over a Vauxhall Signum that was, uh, missing its passenger-side front tire. It’s very understandable, as these things are easy to overlook and hard to notice. The driver was thoughtful enough to use a turn signal when changing lanes, though, in video captured by a…
On Sunday night, a parking garage went up in flames in Liverpool, England, destroying 1,400 cars but, somehow, seriously injuring no one in the process, including six dogs that were rescued from the blaze, according to The Guardian.
Mike Mistry was just your regular old parking lot attendant, working for the local municipality, and now he’s been fired just because they found an incredibly famous king buried in his parking lot. Sad, but true!
Hundreds of passengers no longer have a bus line to rely on, and several drivers are without jobs after a bus company in England abruptly shut down Sunday.

Imagine the Quidditch game from the world of Harry Potter, but with normal people throwing trash out of their cars.
In a city like London, where architecture from many centuries past sits among modern skyscrapers, a show like the London City Concours that unites great cars old and new seems perfectly at home. I visited the event this summer on a break from Japan. It was the first event of its kind, and as inaugural shows go, this…
In between chasing Paganis through the Tuscan countryside and inhaling tire smoke at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, I spent a couple of weeks in London. It’s a city seeping with history and culture—and some very good cars, if you know where to look.
Nothing says ‘sweet summer innocence’ like getting a cool treat from a stranger driving a van. However, such snacks might be harmful to kids, and we’re not talking about just the refined sugar here. Reporters from The Daily Mail in England took a bunch of emissions readings from ice cream trucks in England, and found…
Randy is being sent to jolly old England for a few years and he gets to take a car with him. It needs to be practical and reliable, preferably a good representation of the U.S. of A, but not too big. What car should he buy?
It’s anarchy in the streets of Warwickshire, UK as police on are the hunt for two dangerous dog-walking radicals committing the heinous crime of removing traffic cones from the street.
I just returned from a vacation in southwest England, where the motorways taught me a cruel lesson. Those harsh streets made me realize that I am a weak man with a fragile heart, a flappable soul and a frail spirit. I may never recover.
In India, southeast Asia and Far Cry 4, the three-wheeled rickshaw taxis known as “Tuk Tuks” are considered as perfectly normal means of conveyance. As far as I’m concerned, it looks like a damn deathtrap. And a lot of fun.
Ever wonder what it would feel like to attempt a sweet trick in your commuter car?
Jalopnik has been forwarded an official-looking letter to London residents allegedly coming from the BBC, informing locals that “an American Mustang car [will be] driving at speed performing ‘slides’ on and around” the famous Tower Bridge.
The British Government has just committed almost $30 million to develop various facets of autonomous car tech, a chunk of which Bosch and Jaguar Land Rover are getting to develop self-driving cars that actually “drive like humans, not robots.”
When you finally become a licensed driver and have a few years under your belt, the driving experience becomes automated. But what happens when you go to a foreign country where they drive on the wrong side of the road? That’s this week, on Worst Car Stories.
Land Rover Defenders don’t usually go fast. But when they do, they look hilarious, unstoppable, and way too much fun.
Don the tweed and pomade. The Goodwood Revival is a living exhibit of Britain’s motoring past, but is this a positive for mechanical culture going forward, or an anchor keeping us navel gazing into the past?
