Driving: A Great Weekend Time Killer

Over these long weekends, you might have nothing to do. If you need way to spend all that free time, try going for a weekend drive. Find a long highway and drive down it for a few hours. In addition to gaining experience and getting a bunch of hours for your license, you also might see some great views. Maybe try driving down the beach if you live near one. Anyways, I got about two-and-a-half hours from one trip. Try it out!

Freeway Driving

I recently started driving on the freeway, so here are some of my experiences. There are two ways to look at it: it's more stressful because you have to drive at very high speeds, or it's less stressful because you don't have to worry about traffic lights and people coming from other roads. Lane changes for me are a bit hard on the freeway. Maintaining speed is important. You don't slow down by braking, but, for the most part, by letting off the accelerator. Anyways, those are my first impressions of freeway driving.

Why Your Parents Should Go With You On Your Behind-The-Wheel Lesson

When you take your behind-the-wheel lesson, many parents wonder if they should go with their teen on their lesson. The answer is yes, for one big reason. A parent should know how their teenagers drive and get tips from the instructors. This is useful for parents since they'll be with their teen 90% of the time. Anyways, I hope this helps.

If you need help counting your hours of driving or want a great way to save money on gas, Automatic is the device for you. The Automatic is a device that plugs into the OBD-II port of your car (in every car since 1996). It monitors your driving habits and the times that you drive, making logging driving hours super easy. I hope to do a review on this in the coming weeks, but for now I just wanted to tell you about it. It's available for $99.95.
