License To Drive: The Cars Of James Bond

The personification of suave and sophisticated, James Bond is perhaps as well known for his love of cars as he is for his love of women. In fact, many of his cars live on in the memory of fans long after those of the Bond girls have faded away.

The cars most associated with James Bond have never been your average family run around; after all it would be hard to imagine the super-spy driving a Ford Escort equipped with machine guns and rocket launchers! However, while James Bond did make use of more mundane vehicles when the need arose throughout his adventures, he is perhaps better known though for his use of those gadget-laden cars which featured heavily in the movies.

Nevertheless, the first of the James Bond cars was an altogether more modest vehicle - a mustard coloured Sunbeam Alpine, which featured in the first James Bond film, 'Dr. No' and sadly was not equipped with machine guns or oil sprays. It was also a far cry from Bond's preferred choice of vehicle, the British-made Bentley.

Fuel-free Trikke CV, the original three-wheeled carving vehicle is becoming a preferred choice for commuting to and from work. The popular recreational sport bike propels commuters to and from work at speeds up to 20 miles per hour - without pedaling.

Los Angeles, CA -- June 5, 2008 -- With summer driving season fast approaching, analysts see little chance of relief from the seemingly unending spike in gasoline prices that now hover around $4.00 a gallon across the nation. In an effort to protect the family budget from the gas pump, many drivers are leaving trucks, SUVs and similar gas guzzlers in the garage in favor of fuel-efficient hybrids and compact cars. Others are abandoning traditional vehicles altogether and are bicycling, jogging and busing to and from work, effectively reducing their commuting cost to virtually nothing.

Getting California auto insurance is an important decision. With mandatory insurance laws, there are a number of low cost coverage options for drivers. However, the cheapest option may not always be the best for you.

California requires all drivers maintain a minimum coverage of
Bodily Injury Liability: $15,000 for death or injury of any one person,
any one accident and $30,000 for all persons in any one accident. While Property Damage Liability requirement $5,000 for any one accident.
Insurers and regulators often call this minimal coverage 15/30/5.

However, getting the cheapest, minimum insurance shouldn't be the only way you choose coverage. You should determine how much coverage you need based on your assets and budget. This is because being underinsured when you have an accident can be as bad as not being insured at all.

What are the Legal Ramifications of a DWI and a DUI?

What are the Legal Ramifications of a DWI and a DUI?

DWI (driving while intoxicated) and DUI (driving under the influence) are defined as operating a vehicle while impaired by alcohol consumption. If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 or higher, or you have a chemical or controlled substance in your blood, you are considered legally impaired. DWI and DUI are serious offenses and come with very harsh penalties in the state of Florida.

Drinking and driving is extremely dangerous and results in the death of many innocent people each year. The laws against doing so are becoming increasingly tougher. As the offender repeats the crime, the penalties grow worse. A conviction for DWI/DUI will remain on your record for seventy-five years. Basically, one mistake and it will follow you for the rest of your life.

The Hidden Dangers of Seat Belts

The Hidden Dangers of Seat Belts

When functioning properly, and worn properly, seat belts can save lives. When seat belts malfunction they can kill you, even in an accident that would have otherwise caused minor injuries or no injuries at all. Unfortunately, in most states, the law requires that you wear one whether it is defective or not.

Common Malfunctions

Retractor failure. Just a tiny amount of slack in a seat belt will cause very serious injuries. During an accident, the retractor mechanism locks, keeping the seat belt from feeding out, so it will remain snug. When the retractor fails to lock it allows slack to be created in the belt.
