    This is some Russian dashcam footage of a woman (at least the video says it's a woman) who loses control of her little egg car and miraculously (and unintentionally) parallel parks it backwards after barely avoiding accidents in three lanes of traffic. I think we can all agree... / Continue →

    Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I'm still medicated from sickness so I'm going to take it easy today. I hate writing under the influence because why work when I should be on the couch trying to spot faces in the textured ceiling. I'll return tomorrow like a comet, at which... / Continue →

    On display at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Audi is currently testing its new Smart City Traffic Light Assistance, a system that provides a countdown until the next stoplight on your route will turn green. Alternatively, treat yourself to a jetpack and for... / Continue →

    This is some dash-cam footage from Russia (where else?) of a guy in a Toyota Camry constantly trying to get in front of and stop another Ruskie in a Nissan MPV, presumably to stab him with the the knife he has. He finally gets the guy to swerve off the road into a ditch, then ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bus trip along a road carved from the side of a mountain in the Himalayas. Possibly the road in India from Killar in the Pangi Valley to Kishtwar, Kashmir. It is terrifying. I don't care if that road ends at the fountain of youth, I will die old and ugl... / Continue →

    This is a video of a driver in Chicago who hits a cab, then tries to flee the scene at low speed. Unfortunately for him, he's the world's worst driver and crashes into five more cars in the process. Think of him as Ryan Gosling's character in 'Drive', if that character had be... / Continue →

    RETROACTIVE WARNING: Spider in car picture. In news that almost makes me glad to have a ten-year old car that's ready to explode any minute, Toyota has recalled 870,000 Camrys, Venzas and Avalons built in 2012 and 2013 because spider webs can cause a blockage that makes the dr... / Continue →

    You see the little blue car in the top right corner? How long do you think it should take to pull out of that spot and leave the parking lot? Ten seconds? Surely not FOUR MINUTES. Who the hell is driving that car? Do they even have a license? If so, which family member wo... / Continue →

    Twice this month drivers using Apple Maps for directions have wound up on a runway at Fairbanks International Airport in Alaska, thanks to a glitch in the app that affects newer devices. Honey -- doesn't this road seem a little wide to you? Thankfully, nobody was hit by an ai... / Continue →

    Because this is the sad world we live in, New York has begun repurposing 91 of the state's Park-N-Ride lots and rest stops to include "text stop" signs so motorists know they're a safe place to pull over and text instead of doing it while driving. Of course, if you actually ne... / Continue →

    This is the Nissan Patrol that's been modded by King of Customs to be driven from the middle of the back seat. Why? No clue, probably just because they could. Is it legal? Again, no clue. I know I'm probably starting to sound like a pretty piss-poor journalist right now, b... / Continue →

    This is the $13 Moving Tail Kitty Car Decal from ThinkGeek. You get both a happy cat and grumpy cat decal and four tails to make your rear windshield wiper look like it's wagging. Don't have a car with a rear windshield wiper? Congratulations, your decal cat has a butthole. ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Mario Kart's Rainbow Road spotted in real life. It looks way less spacey than I would have imagined. It's actually disappointing. It's real though, and located on Interstate 86 in Idaho. Weird, I never though the exit to Rainbow Road would be in Idaho. Of... / Continue →

    74-year-old great grandmother Darlene Nestor was driving her 10-year old great grandson Gryffin and his 4-year old brother around at 60MPH when she passed out mid-sentence (typical great grandmother move!). So what did Gryffin do? Open his door and roll out into traffic like ... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Indiana of a semi truck that was forced off the interstate by a merging car (LEARN HOW TO F***ING DRIVE) and had no other choice but to CATCH SOME SERIOUS AIR AND EXPLODE. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured or I probably wouldn't be posting thi... / Continue →

    In solid decision making news, a man in Australia was recently caught driving with a set of vice grips instead of a steering wheel. Where did the steering wheel go? No clue, but after 286,000 kilometers pieces are bound to start falling off. Police in Australia said that a w... / Continue →

    This is a video of motorcyclist Bossaucey cruising around in Utah (and wearing a helmet-cam) when he spots a SUV with a coffee mug on it's bumper. So what does he do? What any aspiring daredevil would: speeds up, picks it up, then returns it to its owner. I like how when he ... / Continue →

    As proof that Apple products, are, in fact, deadly weapons, this is the iPad that got stuck in a Georgia woman's car bumper. The woman says she noticed an object coming at her while driving but didn't think anything of it (not a good driver quality btw) until she got home and ... / Continue →

    This is some dash-cam footage from (where else?) Russia of a Subaru that loses control while passing another car on an icy road and does a 360-degree spin before landing perfectly in the lane and driving off like nothing happened. Which makes me wonder -- was the spin really u... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a real video recorded by some Ruskie's car cameras from when that meteor tried to decimate the world's vodka supply earlier this month. It's only ten seconds, so just watch it. I'm convinced dude was either already on his way to kill himself or just hadn't ha... / Continue →
