Video of the Week: Italy

There are many people out there who make us wonder how they ever managed to get a license when they cannot even move a car into a parking space. The problem is present in Italy too, where some cannot even figure out if a car will fit in a particular space. Not a glowing tribute for women drivers either. Stay within the lines, people.

Video Of The Week: Russia

While we might have it bad around here in terms of driving standards, there are countries out there which have it worse. This intersection in Russia does not have traffic signals, and drivers are supposed to cross the junction based on courtesy alone. The results, of course, are not pretty.

Bugatti owners offended by us

Bugatti owners offended by us

I received the following email today from someone (whose name I shall withhold):

Dear Sir/Maam

Let me first say that I am very impressed at your site. Its accurate details have been of great benefit to me when purchasing any automobile in the U.A.E.. Unfortunately I have been offended by some of the remarks posted as they do not siute my clients or the people I work for.

Civic drive ends in unrelated headache

Civic drive ends in unrelated headache

So we drove our rental 2007 Honda Civic for eight straight days and returned it. Later I find out there is a speeding fine on it. Except that I did not step out of the house at the time of the fine, let alone be anywhere near the location listed for the speed camera. I’ll have to waste a morning clearing up this nonsense now. This is not the first time that the wrong fines have ended on my lap. Thank you, Dubai Police.

Update: Wasted a morning. As expected, got the runaround. Will have to waste a second morning to see if anything is solved.

Video of the Week: USA

Back in the early 1980s, before America became a country that tries too hard to be politically correct, yet managed to turn everything into a political disaster, there existed a gaming console known as the Atari 2600. In the days before Nintendo and Sega, the Atari ruled and the best game ever at that time was Pole Position, which can be called the first proper driving game ever. I first played it in the early 90s as a kid on my fake Atari, but this original ad is from the early 80s, when the game was new and people weren’t offended so easily.

Australian popo gets SS cop cars

Australian popo gets SS cop cars

The latest Australian region to receive the new Holden VE Commodore police cruisers is Victoria. The Aussies call them SMART cars, which stands for Special Mobile Anti- Road Toll, and they’re meant to form a highly visible presence that promotes safe driving. Of course, the Commodore SS is sold in the Middle East as the Chevrolet Lumina SS.
