The Physics Of Why You Get Confused When You Reverse A Car

Driving forwards is easy. Reversing is… weirdly much trickier. This video from Minute Physics explains why you shouldn’t feel dumb about it — because it’s all down to physics working against you.


A Cheaper Highway Guardrail May Be Malfunctioning And Deadly

It’s the difference of just 2.5cm. In 2005, the guardrail manufacturer Trinity Industries shaved that much off its guardrail design, saving the company $2 per guardrail head. It also neglected to report this design change to the Federal Highway Administration. Tens of thousands of these potentially deadly guardrail heads are now installed all over the US, and after numerous accidents and deaths, states are finally banning it.


This Street Has No Lanes, Signals Or Signs -- And It's Safer For It

An Arizona Highway Has Used The Metric System Since The 1980s

Who doesn’t like a maths pop quiz when driving down to the Mexican border? If you turn onto Interstate 19, which runs 101km from Tucson, Arizona, down to Mexico, the road signs suddenly change to metric units. Interstate 19 is a relic from a more optimistic era, when we believed all of the US could and would convert to the metric system.


Driving In Los Angeles Somehow Looks Awesome In This Time Lapse

I hate driving, I really do. I especially hate driving in Los Angeles.

This New Parking App Can Find Empty Spaces, No Sensors Required

Parking sucks, and that’s why there are apps to help your car find a vacant spot. The trouble is those solutions tend to require expensive sensors to be installed in each and every one of those potentially open spots. A new app called PocketParker instead leverages the power of passive, portable sensors — the ones already installed on your smartphone.

Video The worlds that Wes Anderson creates in his movies are so beautiful that even something as mundane as driving from one point to the next seems like a fun-filled adventure. Here are his POV scenes of vehicles from movies like the Life Aquatic and The Grand Budapest Hotel.


Will Autonomous Cars Kill The Traffic Light?

Three Different Accidents In 30 Seconds In One Intersection In Russia

Video: Driving in Russia is flirting with death — watch these three accidents happening in 30 seconds. First, the grey van violently rams itself into the car in front of it.

What the hell, grey van.
