Listen, it’s okay. You can admit. Your biggest childhood fantasy. You know the one. I know the one. We’ve all had that one. You always dreamed of having the singular, awesome ability to punch straight through glass like a total BAMF. Apparently, with just a bit of freezing rain and your car window, dreams can come…
NASCAR’s favorite son and driving god Dale Earnhardt Jr. accidentally tapped a tree after a snowstorm that blasted parts of North Carolina. He said he tapped the tree because he was going a bit fast, but consider this, southerners: if Dale Jr. is struggling to keep it under control, maybe it’s not the best time to go…
Last week, an Instagram user posted video of a skier being propelled by a car on the streets of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The skier ultimately failed, and now the police have gotten interested.
If you don’t see the sign, expect to do the time (paying off your increased insurance rates after sliding on a sheet of ice that was formerly an off-ramp and straight into a pileup of crashed cars).
What you need is winter tires. And you might need more ground clearance than you get with a 2002 Lexus IS300 Sportcross. Maybe. Kind of. Not really.
“Morning Sickness” was a common issue with a lot of 1980s-era General Motors cars. When it was cold outside, turning the steering wheel required the strength of a giant.
There were a lot of good cars braving the blizzard in New York City today. These are some of them, and even more are parked. We went out in my colleague Mike Ballaban’s Lexus IS300 wagon to go find them.
Ski lifts are the cars of the ski slope, just without pretty much any of the standard safety features, and strung up dozens of feet above the ground. This makes ski lifts extremely precarious in windy situations, as evidenced by this terrifying video taken at a ski resort in Vorarlyberg, Austria, on Wednesday.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an amateur or an elite driver- drifting involves speed and high stakes. Except when it doesn’t, like when you have a frozen lake in a national park to drive on. These drifters are practicing sliding at walking speed, in quiet cars, and it looks like an absolute riot.
Over five feet of snow has fallen on Erie, Pennsylvania, since Sunday evening, and the roads are a bit of a mess. But the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is working on that, and you can watch their efforts in real time.
In these dark days when everything seems impossible, hope is rare and days are short, we need a guiding light to show us the way, the light, and the path of vehicular ridiculousness. This Detroit driver is clearly that man.
Black ice is nearly impossible to see, can form almost anywhere on the road, and has the potential to send your vehicle careening into oncoming traffic. It’s bad news. Here’s how you can spot that nasty black ice and avoid accidents when you hit the road during the holidays.
Some people like to open a window or turn off the heat in the bedroom before snuggling up under the covers when going to bed in the winter. What if you could take that sensation with you anywhere you went?
The winter holiday season is just about here and it’s almost time for you and your whole family to hop in whatever vehicle you chose for winter duty and travel across the country for all your various Hanukkah/Christmas/Festivus/etc family gatherings.
The temperatures are dropping, snow will start to fall and soon, seemingly everyone on the roads will collectively forget how to drive in the first storm, even though they were perfectly fine at the end of last winter. Here’s how you can avoid that pileup.
This winter, around 17 million tons of rock salt from mines in the U.S. and all over the world will be applied to icy roads across the United States. A growing body of research shows that this salt has become an environmental pollutant, and that we need to start considering alternatives.
A surprise snow storm shut down the Nürburgring for a bit this Sunday after it slicked down the pavement for pure chaos. Some drivers enjoyed those cold, wet conditions more than others. To the highlight reel, away!
It’s 24 degrees in the godforsaken wasteland that is southeast Michigan, so it’s a good thing I’ve got all my winter projects in a nice, warm, insulated garage. (I do not).
