It seems that just a few years ago air bags in cars were exotic. Today their numbers in some models are up to 10. At first glance, it’s a simple bag made of a smooth, elastic synthetic material. But the fabric of an airbag needs to be very thin and strong, during the accident even the smallest stitches should not not be in the contact area with driver’s face and body. The cushion should’nt also become a trampoline, it must be able to ease the gas pressure on time. In fact, many manufacturers have ceased to sew pillows using the fabric that breaks letting the air out. When packing the airbag they put talc powder to prolong the cushion’s life. The number of embedded airbags is growing rapidly. Just recently, the car with two airbags was considered as luxury and now having a dozen would not surprise an average driver. […]

I am definitely not very “techie” but my older son has done everything from building computers, to developing websites to teaching classes about how to protect children from internet predators.

We all make mistakes and sometimes think that we are never going to find the right path but, with a little faith and guidance, things can be resolved. 2.

Letting your emotions control the situation when you are facing a computer or a stressful life situation with not help! Slow down. Take a breath […]

Whether you received a DUI driving a car or motorcycle, operating a boat or jet ski, or some other vehicle, the requirements to reinstate your license are going to include proof of liability insurance. Even if a DUI was received while riding your bicycle, or as a passenger in a car, which really does happen, the consequences are still the same. Insurance requirements to reinstate license are a minimum of $100,000 per person, $300,000 per accident for Bodily Injury Liability and $50,000 for Property Damage Liability (100/300/50). Unless this type of coverage was in effect, on a valid policy at the time of DUI, a Florida FR44 filing to the Bureau of Financial Responsibility will need to be included in a new policy for insurance. A new policy does not necessarily mean a new car insurance policy. No matter what you were driving or doing to receive a DUI, you […]

First produced in 2000 as a 2001 model, car enthusiasts did not expect much from this car. The mini SUV market was already dominated by Jeep, Ford, Dodge and even Toyota's own 4Runner, so we waited to see what the Japanese were up to this time.
