You've probably heard that red sports cars are more likely to get a speeding ticket than cars of other colors. According to the article "Cars Most Likely To Get a Ticket" on Forbes.com, this isn't really true. The drivers who are most often ticketed are middle aged men driving foreign-made cars, such as the Mercedes-Benz CLS-63 AMG or Volkswagen GTI. Compared to the average drivers, middle-aged men driving these vehicles are twice as likely to get a ticket. Even worse is the Hummer H2, which is almost three times more likely than average to get a ticket.
Of course, the only true way to avoid getting a speeding ticket is to drive at or under the speed limit--regardless of what car you choose to drive. Although you may get to your destination more slowly than some others, safe drivers may be rewarded with lower insurance premiums.
Wondering how you can lower ...
Today, one of the big selling points for many cars and trucks is the fact that they have four-wheel drive or all wheel drive. While this sounds great, many people wonder if they really need to have this capability in their vehicles. Although its nice to have, most people feel that if you're not out in the woods, playing in the sand or in the snow, 4WD/AWD is simply a waste of money. However, this actually isn't the case at all.
Granted, part-time four-wheel drive is only good if activated and usually isn't necessary unless you are in a situation where 4WD will enable you to get out, or make progress to where you're going. However, full-time 4WD/AWD not only gives you additional control over your vehicle in inclement conditions, it also gives you additional control during dry conditions and in the rain. Sometimes, you need all the advantages you can get.
