DailyDirt: Automotive Apps And Other Car Stuff
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The past year brought some significant changes to the car industry, and the upcoming year is bound to bring a lot more. Besides just gasoline and diesel, car buyers are going to have a few more options for how their cars are powered. Fully electric or hybrid cars may only be the start. While we’re still waiting on flying cars to hit the dealerships, here are some quick car-related links.
Fans of Saturn say goodbye to the brand in 2010. How many other car brands would (or will?) be so thoughtfully eulogized?

your Toyota wont stop? there is a app for that
“Don’t flash your headlights to warn other drivers about speed traps.”
I heard a story in Chacago a long time ago about gang members driving around with their headlights off. When someone would flash them to let them know, they would follow them and shoot them.
According to snopes, that’s an old myth…
Your Toyota won’t stop?
There’s a floor mat for that!
(BTW, that initial accident involving the officer and family happened about 4 blocks from my home and I actually drove through that intersection shortly (within minutes) after the crash. My condolences to the family and friends of the victims.)
Aww crap, someone told me and it must be true!
That “How’s my driving” thing is a little scary. If it gets going it’ll bring along a bunch of lawsuits.
