Highway Hypnosis and Long Night Trips: Some Do's and Don't's

Highway Hypnosis and Long Night Trips: Some Do's and Don't's

Photo by MK Hamilton on Unsplash   The experience known as highway hypnosis (or white line fever) causes many summer crashes, particularly late at night. Overextended travelers may find themselves falling asleep at the wheel with many miles to go.    It might be their fault for not preparing for a long trip, but in truth, highway hypnosis happens about twenty minutes going into a long drive. Sleepiness can be an issue, but the more significant problem is that we built our highway system as a uniformly monotonous landscape. Seeing the same turnpike and off-ramp over and over again makes our oculomotor (eye-to-brain) system stagnant.

Top Five Ways To Prepare Your Car For Summer's Heat

Welcome to April’s blog! We hope that Spring has been treating you kindly. We’re a quarter of the year in right now, and things have begun to look up in almost every part of life! With Spring in bloom and Summer on the way, it’s a good time to remember that the summer heat can be murder.

Springtime Driving in Hamburg

Springtime Driving in Hamburg

Welcome to March’s blog! We’ve got the new season on our minds. After a rough winter, we’re hoping spring will bring about some much-needed renewal to our lives, and we hope you feel the same way! As we enter those rituals of ‘out with the old, in with the new,’ it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning and improving our living, working, and travelling situations. Just as a house needs to be turned out once a year, so should your car get a thorough cleaning. It may not have occured to you previously that spring cleaning is important for you car, for a number of reasons: Hygiene. Your car is the same car your kid sneezed in and the same car you dropped parts of a cheeseburger into. It doesn’t self-clean, and the germs that are left behind remain a part of the car.  Engine performance. Your car’s engine gets populated with leaves and debris.

5 Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Car Lover in Your Life!

Welcome to a new month! It's just a week until the Super Bowl and two weeks until Valentine's Day! We hope you have someone special with whom to share both occasions. Many of you will be looking for gifts, and some of you will be hunting for the perfect offering for the car lover in your life. And finding a gift for a car lover can be a tricky proposition. Car lovers tend to have particular interests. Most already have what they want for their car, so it's quite a trick to find something they haven't already purchased for themselves and their peace of mind. To find the right gift, you might have to keep an eye peeled out for what they keep in their car, or what they proudly display. Consider swag and things they wouldn't buy for themselves. You can get official apparel for most brands, and if you can get the colors to match their car, that's a delightful gift. The gift you want to find is something that will make their drive better somehow. Here are our five ... read more
