Dashcams are popping up everywhere these days. The phenomenon really took off in the Eastern Bloc, where dashcams protect law-abiding Russians from unscrupulous people faking traffic accidents/causing traffic accidents/pretending to be hit by a car. Throw in a few meteors, a hilarious compilation of dashcam crashes or 12, and it wasn’t long before dashcams became a key part of the automotive landscape.

Here are the five reasons you should own a dashcam.

Game of Thrones: Valar Automobilis – All Men Must Drive
http://autotrdr.ca/GoT

Watching the season premiere on Sunday, we asked ourselves: if the characters of The Game of Thrones lived in the here and now, what would they drive? What would appeal most to them when they trade horses for horsepower?

True to the show, we had an all-out war (of words) before the entire affair was brought to a sudden and brutally unjust end by the intervention of a certain senior editor, who dictated the majority of the list you see here.

(Our sincere apologies to David J. Peterson for butchering the Valyrian language.)

We've a couple stabs at suggesting what various vehicles can be financed at different price caps, but this time will be focusing on leasing instead. Why lease? It’s tax time, and leasing makes sense for entrepreneurs, consultants and tradespeople too, who can write off a portion of their monthly payments and expenses. That’s why we've included everything from basic work vans to luxury cars, to try and cover off a whole range of possible uses. The most you can claim is $800/month, but your actual entitlement could be less based on usage, vehicle value and more. This is a rough guide of things that fall under the CRA cap only. All calculations are done with no down-payment or trade.

Can't park to save your life?

Of all the things I’m not very good at, parking a vehicle, and especially a little sports car with limited outward visibility or a great big pickup, is the most entertaining to watch if you’re standing nearby.

“Hey, Pritchard! Nice parking job! Aren't you supposed to be a professional, or something?”

My friends mock me often, and vigorously, when I arrive for nightly coffee and back into my parking space, sometimes halfway over one line and on a bit of an angle.

I've been called many things, but professional parker isn't one of them.

“Back-up camera is on crooked, I think,” I often reply, laughing outwardly, but feeling self-conscious inside for an hour or more.

Numerous factors at play, here. I drive a Dodge Viper between press cars, which is impossible to park properly since it’s absurdly shaped, long, wide, and has you sitting virtually on the rear wheels. Plus, I’m not a visual person and apparently, as my father said during my mid-teen driving lessons, parking is all about visualizing where you want to be, which my brain doesn't do.

And, driving no fewer than three or four different vehicles every month means your writer never gets a comfort zone with the vehicle’s steering, size, shape or outward visibility required for confident parking. Or, by time I do, I the car in question is due to be returned.

So, over the years, I've come to gather a mental list of systems, features, technologies and even entire vehicles, which by various means, make parking easier for the parking-challenged masses, of which, sadly, I count myself. Of course, not all of these systems are perfect, but some are pretty darn good indeed.

Here’s a closer look.

First Ride: 2015 Honda CBR300R
http://autotrdr.ca/2015CBR300R

Honda’s 2015 CBR300R is a significant re-imagining of the popular CBR250R. When Kawasaki upped their 250cc engine to 300cc – giving it a corresponding 10 hp boost – Honda wasted little time reconfiguring their pocket-rocket CBR. While a long way from the ear-splitting, four-cylinder CBR250RRs of the early 1990s, the CBR300R continues the tradition of an entry-level sport bike for emerging riders.

Two days at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Georgia aboard the 2015 Honda CBR300R proved its credentials as a comprehensive and capable starter bike for both street and track.

Stars in Cars: Country Singer-Songwriter Dean Brody
http://autotrdr.ca/DeanBrody

He’s one of Canada’s brightest country music stars. Dean Brody has topped the music charts with hit singles such as Brothers, Bounty, It’s Friday, and Canadian Girls. His last album, Crop Circles, swept the music scene and the awards circuit, winning a 2014 Juno for Country Recording of the Year and a 2014 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award for Country Album of the Year. Brody hopes to repeat that success with his latest album, Gypsy Road, which goes on sale April 21, 2015. Shortly after, he’ll hit the road criss-crossing the country for his Canadian tour. But he won’t be driving his wheels: a 1999 Nissan Sentra nicknamed “Roach” because “she just won’t die.”

The car that Sarnia Sting assistant coach Chris Lazary recalls when you ask him to drum up his favorite motoring memories may not seem like much on the surface, but it does well to show how you don’t need a Ferrari badge on the hood to make a memory.

Wondering how the Canadian auto market is doing after the first three months of 2015?

We've included the top 12 vehicles overall, and while most were on the list at the end of 2014, some positions are changing rapidly. Also, since one of the hottest segments has to be the luxury SUV market where just about every manufacturer has at least a couple offerings. So we figured taking a look at how the strongest players in the luxury SUV segment are doing after one of the most brutal winters around.

Spring is in the air – carrying on its warm breezes the promise of new beginnings, blooming flowers, and hot summer days. Of course, it isn't all leafy shrubs and fuzzy ducklings – especially if you nail a killer pothole with your car and blow its alignment to kingdom come.

Make no mistake: potholes aren't just a springtime inconvenience, and though often downplayed by municipalities in terms of seriousness, the fact remains that striking one hard enough and at a high-enough velocity can instantly destroy your ride’s tire and wheel, causing a dramatic crash. Smaller potholes can chew up and knock around your vehicle’s wheels, tires and suspension – resulting in accelerated wear, damage, alignment issues, and hefty repair bills.

The motoring public shouldn't simply accept potholes as a discomfort, or yearly rite of spring passage. They’re a serious risk to drivers everywhere.

Here are a few things to bear in mind as you travel pothole-riddled roads this spring.

Have you ever seen the inside of a transmission? Shafts, gears, cogs, passageways, pumps, bands, clutches and fluid lines are all packed into an incredibly small space, all working to turn the mechanical force generated by your ride’s engine into the miracle of forward momentum.

As far as most folks are concerned, transmissions operate on the principles of witchcraft and sorcery. Others know the important stuff: a transmission is a bunch of gears sloshing around in a bunch of fluid, and when you put it in ‘DRIVE’ the car moves.

By time you finish reading our guide, you’ll have a more comprehensive understanding, which will make you more educated, more awesome, and more appealing to the ladies (or blokes).
