The U.K. government announced on Monday that every newly built home would come with a charge point for electric vehicles as part of its Road to Zero initiative. The initiative’s aim is to end the sale of new gasoline and diesel cars and vans by 2040, and one stop along the path to that goal is to ensure all homeowners…
We all know driving drunk is among the things to be considered “Extremely Bad,” but it can be hard to fathom just how bad until you see it up close. But a drunk driver in Britain managed to record her own terrifying drunk ride through a dashcam, and the result will make you never even consider doing it.
Speed cameras are an intrusion of a fascistic surveillance state on the motoring public, but perhaps even worse than that, they don’t make roads any safer. They’re just a money grab. But when one heroic British motorist decided he’d had enough with The Man, hooked up a laser jammer and gave those cameras the finger,…
An intense snowstorm hammered the United Kingdom on Wednesday, leaving hundreds of helpless drivers in Scotland stranded on a roadway overnight.
It has come to our attention that Chevrolet is off to a booming start this year in the United Kingdom, where it reportedly sold a total of one—yes, one—car last month. Notably, that’s one (1) more than its U.K. sales a year prior. Not bad!
An officer in the United Kingdom showed the world just what a cop without a gun can do after he save a driver’s life by holding an entire truck back from a precipice.
After years of delays and cost overruns, the British Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth is set to begin a series of critical sea trails that will help determine if the billions of pounds it took to build her were really worth it.
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.
Brexit! It’s a word! And thanks to a vote yesterday, it’s a Thing! Most simply, it means that the United Kingdom is going to leave the European Union. But it might mean a hell of a lot more than that simple explanation for the Britain’s auto industry, and the rest of the globalized car world.
The Royal Marines are a pretty nasty bunch, with hundreds of years of experience fighting wars. And sometimes in war, for various reasons, you lose your rifle. The Royal Marines have contingency plans for that, and many of those plans seem to just include a swift dropkick right to the solar plexus.
All Royal Navy Trafalgar-class submarines have specially strengthened hulls and conning towers for breaking through massive polar icepacks. Yet for some reason, HMS Talent returned to port sporting a massive dent in its forehead, and the British Ministry of Defence is blaming it on “ice.” Okay.
Don't laugh. DON'T LAUGH. We've all been there, having one of those days, where you completely forget how directionality, physics, and the universe itself works, okay?! So do not laugh. Too hard.
Last week was Boxing Day, a holiday (I think?) in Canada and the United Kingdom (I think?), whose sole purpose is to celebrate that the day before was Christmas (I think?). So to celebrate those weird British holidays, here's Queen Elizabeth II being the awesome little old lady she is, and driving a Landie with a…
The Red Bull Racing team has released a statement about a break-in at their racing factory. According to the team and to the local police, a group of men drove a truck through the front entrance, thereby allowing them to abscond with more than 60 racing trophies.
Start flying around the United Kingdom without telling anyone where you're going, and you'll get a stern talking-to. Ignore the stern talking-to, and you'll see some fighter jets off your wing. Ignore them, and this might be the last thing you'll hear before you get blown out of the sky.
It's been demonstrated that most speed limits are arbitrary and kind of pointless beyond fueling a money-making scheme, so it's nice to see that Britain is doubling down on them. Actually, they're quadrupling down, by raising the maximum speeding fine to £10,000. That's almost $17,000, in American.
Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.
Two constables of the Wiltshire Police's Roads Policing Unit in the United Kingdom (obviously) manage to escape with only minor injuries after their Audi was absolutely wrecked by another. After looking at this picture, I would say "ouch," but I suppose that's not really applicable anymore.
It's often said that real-life spy work is nothing like being James Bond. James Bond is all about shooting things and explosions and women and car chases, which is supposedly not real spy work. But with a new change in law, that last bit may just become reality, because British spies are now allowed to break the…
