5 Most Popular Ways to get Embarrassed While Driving



We all make driving mistakes, right? But sometimes those mistakes can be extremely embarrassing!  Here are the top embarrassing driving mistakes we’ve all made.


Leaving your turn signal on - We’ve all seen this, don’t be that person!

Cutting someone off unknowingly – On the phone maybe? Confused why that person behind you is blaring their horn? This might be why!

Stopped at a green light – Either daydreaming while stopped, or slowing down approaching a green! I’m sure the noise of frustration/honking/yelling will wake you up.

Top Summer Maintenance Tips



With summer around the corner, here are the top tips to keep your car in the best condition during these hotter months.



Check your tires – Tire pressure changes with the rise of temperature.  An under or over-inflated tire can be extremely dangerous, especially in hotter weather.

Check your fluid levels – Coolant, transmission, power steering, brakes.

Check hoses and belts – Check for cracks or loose connections, this is important for keeping your engine cool. 

Check the coolant and radiator – Summer time is tougher on cooling systems.  You should flush your coolant at least every two years.  Coolant should be added as a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water.

Replace your windshield wipers – With summer comes rain and thunderstorms.  Make sure your wipers are in good working condition.
