Metro Transit Authority has opened the Hwy 290 HOV lane to single passenger vehicles starting today! That is good news considering how slow it is EVERY morning coming in from Fairfield. And along with all the construction for years to come, this option will be worth it from time to time. But all is not gold when it comes to saving time though. You can't always use the HOV lane. There are times when you won't be allowed to use it (see link) and the cost to use it can run up to $5.00 per use! Either way, it'll be up to you to decide when to use it or not. Darby
MPG's in your car are a big deal these days with the price of a gallon of gas. Better gas mileage means less out of your pocket, right? Not neccessarily. MSNauto gives you the facts on how much you'll REALLY save if you buy a more efficient car. Read this before you buy. Darby
OMG! Our nation's symbol for freedom let's us know it's time to buy American! Darby
Small, efficient, yet aesthetically repulsive. No. Im not talking about what I look for in a woman. Im speaking of The Voi Scooter. Sure, Its a tad less cooler than an actual Harley and it makes moped drivers seem hip, but its sure to be a hit within the crowded streets of Bejing. Personally, I dont think I could find myself riding around in a Zippo Lighter.
KTRH Connected's own Rachel Estrada, a former traffic reporter with me here in the traffic studios, has found the latest on the "Flying Car"! It's true! This thing CAN fly! But is it really a flying car? Or is it a driveable plane? You decide... Darby
I thought I'd seen it all when it comes to traffic problems. I hadn't seen this though! An 18-wheeler on its side, uprighted with a fork lift! But wait there's more! Check it out! Darby
I'm pretty much a "stock" kind of guy now. When I'm shopping for a car, I look for something that needs no upgrades, at least as far as my pocket book is concerned. The car has to have enough power, good enough gas mileage, nice rims and tires as well as a good sound system. That being said, as a youngster there was no way to get all those things in a car when you're making minimum wage, so you had to buy a car and "accessorize" it as you could afford it. MSNauto shows you how to upgrade your cars performance and mpg while showing you other things to do to your car to make it better! Darby
