More strange but true car laws: In Thailand it is against the law to dance while behind the wheel. (Please don’t twerk and drive!) In Brazil if someone is killed in a car accident they must still submit to a breathalizer test. (Or the deceased can take a field sobriety test if they’d rather.) In Westminster Colorado it is against the law to be lost while driving between 9pm and 4am. (Please, only become disoriented during daylight hours. Thank you!) And in Washington D.C. it is illegal to pile horse manure higher than six feet on a street corner. (We can't make this stuff up.)

What’s in a name? Forbes list of the worst car names includes:
Chevy Nova (which in Spanish means “no go”)
Dodge Dart Swinger (Yeah baby!)
Daihatsu Charade (synonyms include farce and travesty)
Renault LeCar (which was designed lebad)
Ford Probe (which sounds generally unpleasant)
Chevrolet Citation (which sounds like a traffic ticket)
Oldsmobile Firenza (which sounds dangerous)
Ford Festiva (a cramped car that was the opposite of festive)
And #1: Honda Life Dunk

Brakes are a car’s most important safety feature – although they were not added until 1901, 15 years AFTER the first car was invented. (Before that we either stopped the car with our feet or just sort of ran into things!)

To keep from running into things, listen/feel for these 3 important things that could indicate you have brake issues:

-high pitched squeaking, grinding or scraping sounds while braking
-unusual vibrations that happen during braking
-slow braking, “soft” brakes or pedal going all the way to the floor

If you experience these or any other brake issues, don’t hesitate. Call us and schedule a brake inspection!

Do-it-yourself repair is better for some things than others. (For example, coat hangers and duct tape typically don't come with warranties!) When it comes to your safety on the road, let our trained and experienced mechanics take care of you and your car!

Like to sing along to music in your car but not 100% certain of the words? Here are some of the most misheard and mis-sung (and hilarious) song lyrics according to a poll by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody:
What people sing: "Scare a moose, scare a moose, will you do my fan Van Gogh?"
The actual lyric: "Scaramouche, scaramouche, will you do the fandango?"

Bee Gee’s Stayin Alive:
What people sing: "Steak and a knife, steak and a knife."
The actual lyric: "Stayin alive, stayin alive."

Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Bad Moon Rising:
What people sing: "There’s a bathroom on the right."
The actual lyric: "There’s a bad moon on the rise."

Bob Dylan’s Blowin in the Wind:
What people sing: "The ants are my friends, they’re blowin in the wind."
The actual lyrics: "The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind."

"Rolling stops" (never coming to a complete stop at a stop sign or light) are one of the most common causes of injury accidents (because of "t-boning" or crashing head on into the side of the car) according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Whatever your reason for coming to a complete stop, thank you! :)
