The glory that you are currently beholding is one of the largest vintage child car seat collections in the world. Trust us, this is way more interesting than it sounds. A Jalopnik reader named Scott has spent the last 30 years collecting nearly 100 vintage car seats, some of which, he says, have even been featured in…
South Korean automotive supplier Hyundai Mobis has developed a new airbag that aims to prevent vehicle occupants from flying out of their cars’ sunroofs during rollovers. Here’s how the intestine-shaped safety device works.
Gran Turismo has always skewed more towards the realistic simulation end of the spectrum in order to provide an accurate experience for virtual racers. This year’s version adds another layer to that, in the form of a certification and enforcement of proper “sportsmanship.”
A Texas jury just awarded a couple severely injured in a crash $42 million because their vehicle, a 2010 Honda Fit, had been improperly repaired by a collision center. Instead of welding the roof, per Honda’s repair guidelines, the shop used adhesive. That, according to plaintiffs, compromised the car’s safety…
The ongoing subway crisis in New York City this summer has evolved into a potent cocktail mixing commuters’ worst fears together in a hot, claustrophobic, underground nightmare tube. Delays are on the rise, creaky equipment dating back to the 1930s is in dire need of replacement, and actual PTSD might be setting in.…
Tropical Storm Harvey is bearing down on the Texas coast, poised to strike as a powerful hurricane Friday evening. Local authorities are preparing for emergency conditions, but if you’re not already on the Gulf Coast, the best thing you can do is stay away.
It happened. Bright, white light flashed before your eyes, the power of the sun licked your skin, and you felt a shock wave of dust and debris plow through the city you call home. You’re one of the lucky ones, for now, but your struggle isn’t over yet—not even close.
Despite an endless list of fascinating and destructive experiments you can try, microwaves should really only be used to heat food. Not lightbulbs, not highlighters, and definitely not an airbag from a car. Unless you’ve got a high-speed camera to record the microwave’s door turning into a high-speed missile.
There’s plenty of racing this weekend, but sadly, not enough of it is on dirt. If you can’t wait for more dirt, this completely ridiculous highlight reel from Rally Poland should suffice.
Some road hazards are easy for drivers to spot and avoid, like a cavernous pothole, but others aren’t so easy to see. A wet road, or one covered in ice, can often be invisible to drivers, who don’t realize they need to slow down. But it turns out a car’s rubber tires provide all the clues necessary for a vehicle to…
DJI just made a weird but ultimately sensible announcement. The next firmware updates for all of its drone models will require users to log into the website for a “new application activation process.” If you don’t, DJI will turn your drone into a lame hunk of plastic that barely flies.
Flood waters may not look all that threatening on TV, especially if you’re a skilled swimmer. But flash floods, like what recently happened in the Midwest, are actually incredibly dangerous, and they can strike with little to no warning. This is what you should do if you or your vehicle gets swept away by the raging…
The Texas senate just voted to get rid of the state’s mandatory vehicle safety inspection, The Houston Chronicle reports. This means all noble Texans should get ready to head to a scrapyard, buy whatever clapped out piece of crap their heart has been yearning for all these years, and enjoy the open road. The shoulder…
Formula One is approaching its self-imposed deadline to make the halo cockpit sorta-protection system viable for 2018, but wait! F1 has another idea! I’m sure much waffling will be done over it as the cockpit remains as-is, with nothing protecting a driver from getting hit in the helmet.
Shanghai’s track is wet on the pit straight and there’s always some worry that the clouds that halted the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix’s practice sessions on Friday will return. Fortunately, Motorsport.com reports that the FIA tweaked the race’s emergency procedures so the F1 grand prix can run rain or shine.
The world can be a dangerous place, especially for careless travelers. The U.S. State Department does its best to alert tourists of the risks, but those warnings don’t always paint a clear picture. Turns out, the countries issued the most travel warnings aren’t always the most dangerous.
When it comes to flying, crew members do whatever it takes to make a flight comfortable, pleasant, and most importantly, safe for their passengers. Anything, or anyone, that stands in the way of them doing their job gets removed. Like this stuff, for example.
This is advice I hope you never need but should know anyway. A nuclear attack is everybody’s worst nightmare, and the immediate aftermath is just as bad, if not worse, than the explosion itself. Here’s what you should do if you survive the initial blast.
Oh great, another thing to worry about. First, it was exploding hoverboards. Then, it was exploding phones. Now we have exploding headphones—on airplanes!
