Ridiculous and Weird Traffic Laws From Around the World #Infographic #Driving

Most of those sound like a joke, and it’s hard or even impossible to convince people that those are real. But they are real. The interesting part (aside from the laws themselves) is that some of them are so old, that most of the people living now don’t remember the days when these, ridiculous now, laws were active and in force.

So, let’s be honest: most of these laws exist only on paper. And, in reality, nobody is going to fine you are driving barefoot, mostly because what are the chances of you driving barefoot? And even more so – what are your chances of driving blindfolded?

At the same time, many of these laws make you wonder what actually prompted them. For example, why is it not allowed to smoke while driving in Greece? And how can you possibly honk someone else’s car honk? Anyway, those are fun to read about!

Driving By Generation: Baby Boomers vs Millenials #Infographic #Cars

Millennials and Baby Boomers are very different generations for a variety of reasons. One of the most often overlooked differences is their first cars.

Obviously, the popular models were extremely different back then, with most of them considered to be “classics” now. However, you’ll also notice that proportionally, Baby Boomers actually paid more for their first cars than Millennials do now on average.

It seems hard to believe, but due to tight budgets and a struggling economy, Millennials are rather limited in their first car options.

Popular models for Baby Boomers included the 1966 Ford Mustang, 1966 Chevrolet Camaro, 1961 Austin Mini Cooper, 1967 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, 1967 Volkswagen Beetle, and 1970 Datsun 240z.

The prices for these models ranged from $1,595 (the cost of the Austin Mini Cooper) to $4,589 (the cost of the Chevrolet Camaro) back in the day. And the best part was that these cars were usually brand new when they were bought.

Now, most first cars are pre-owned. Popular models for Millennials to buy include the Pontiac Aztek, Dodge Magnum, Chrysler Pacifica, Volkswagen Golf, Chevrolet Trailblazer, and Honda Civic.

The prices for these models range anywhere from $2,673 (the cost of the Pontiac Aztek) to $9,000 (the cost of the Volkswagen Golf and Honda Civic), as of the year 2016.

Adjusted to reflect inflation, figures show that Millennials spend an average of $6,500 on their first cars, while Baby Boomers would have spent an average of $19,100 on their first cars, assuming the prices are the same as they are in 2016.

How to Spot a Drunk Driver #Infographic #DrunkDriving

According to MADD.org, in the recent year there have been 100 drunk driving fatalities representing 28.0% of total traffic deaths in Oregon alone. With drunk driving being an ever-present worry in people’s minds, and with the holidays fast approaching, we created an infographic sharing common behaviors of drunk drivers on the road and how to go about spotting and reporting them to help keep our roads safer.

Drunk driving is not only against the law – it shows a reckless disregard for yourself, as well as other drivers and even pedestrians. We must do more to combat this problem around the country. Please share this simple graphic to help raise awareness about this important issue, and thank you for taking the time!

Pointers You Need to Know When Getting Pulled Over #infographic #pullover #traffic

Have you even been pulled over before? How’d it go? Chances are, there’s a least a thing or two you would change if you could go back.

While it’s never a pleasant experience, the fact is that routine traffic stops happen. Whether or not you know what the reason you’re being pulled over is, getting smart about your interactions with the authorities is the best way to minimise the impact the situation has on you.

Police deal with a multitude of diverse situations every day. Whether or not you think you look innocent, it’s important to keep in mind the fact that when an officer approaches your vehicle, they don’t have any idea what to expect. We’ve all seen those episodes of COPS that give men and women of the law a reason to be nervous.

These simple guidelines will make the situation less threatening for both of you. Many of them, like shutting off your ignition so that the officer knows you have no intention to speed off, or turning down loud music, occur as common sense now. In the heat of the moment, however, you might be glad to have reviewed this handy infographic.
