Studies say: Red-Light Cameras Causing Accidents

Studies from Australia, Canada and the U.S. are cited and not one came back with a positive word for the cameras’ use. In fact, all five studies concluded - due to the red-light cameras – a significant rise in rear-end collisions.

Some of the strangest sights are in your own city, or on your block

Found this between Pacific Beach and LaJolla... looks like it's slowly sinking into the grass, and has been dancing with gravity for a while. What caught my eye was that it's one of the teeny early model Hondas... Then I noticed that it has what appears to be factory performance looks. But what possible performance could they have added at the factory to this little econo box? If you know, email me and spread the word. jbohjkl@yahoo.com

Air dam under the bumper and a hood blister

Why in the world would there be a spoiler on the roof? Factory? Looks like it is.


Sport steering wheel... why? What the heck could pass for sporty about the performance of this Honda?

Crippled Old Biker Bastards society



C.O.B.B. is an elite Society of Crippled Old Biker Bastards and Bitches who have overcome the fear of riding after a crash, and we all know that Crashing Sucks!

The difference is, we are persistent, positive thinking people, who continue to ride after a road casualty.

FACT: We are not a Motorcycle Club, nor do we have intentions of becoming one. We are merely a Society of imperfect people who due to the fault of ourselves, or others, are bound together by the fact that we have “to one degree or another,” had an imperfect riding incident on a motorcycle. There is no way one could or want, by my way of thinking, probate for such a society.

Great illustrators, they rock!

KNBC video journal of a sting on Jiffy Lube ripping off customers

http://bitsandpieces1.blogspot.com/2008/01/think-twice-when-you-get-your-car.html

2 you tube videos of the news show coverage, and additional info from a Jiffy Lube exec in response to being busted for fraud

Just keep an eye on what you are paying other people to do, and you won't be likely to be ripped off.

Always ask friends and co-workers for a good mechanic (or any service you have to pay for) they can recommend, and pass along the good word on ones you recommend (I do right here on this blog, I hope you live in San Diego and use them)
