When you’re in the car and know you’re stuck driving for several hours, it’s hard to keep yourself entertained. This is normally why we turn on the radio if we don’t have music of our own, as it’s better to listen to something rather than nothing. Regardless if they’re your personal selection of tunes or the top 20 hits, you’re eventually going to know the lyrics well enough to sing along.
Music is definitely something that inspires us, and it can lift us up whenever we are feeling down or defeated. Of course, some music are more soothing than other genres, and if you happen to do a whole lot of driving every single day, it would be best if your vehicle could be equipped with a decent sound system so that you can soothe away the rough edges of potential road rage situations with a hint of Bach or Mozart, or even Taylor Swift. Sony intends to bring smartphone connectivity to the driver’s seat with the new Sony XAV-AX100 in-car audio system.
When you’re driving, you need to be as distraction-free as possible. I mean, you are driving a massive metal machine around that could kill anyone you so much as tap while rolling down a hill, let alone going 60 mph. Of course, we can’t be bothered to stop fiddling with what song is on, taking a call, getting out our sunglasses, finding a mint in our bag, or worst of all, eating fast food on the highway.
Everyone exceeds the speed limit whether they mean to or not. When you’re on a long stretch of road for seemingly endless miles with no cars coming or going, you’re going to be a bit lead-footed so you can get to where you’re going faster. Of course, there are police officers who need to do their jobs, and sometimes we forget how fast we’re going when we get closer to civilization.
If anything is going to make you want to pull your hair out, it’s traveling. Everything is a deadline, and if you’re flying, getting through security can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 or more hours. Getting from one gate to another on a layover can show you how good of a runner you are as some airports are huge and you end up getting onto the plane as a sweaty, hot mess.
While we’re not particularly worried about our car getting hit with a little bit of rain, we would certainly be more concerned if we were in an area known for flooding. If you can’t keep your car in a safe place during a downpour, you could be looking at some serious damage. While insurance may help you out, it could take weeks to get things settled, and you know how life loves to throw us a perfect storm every now and again.
Whenever one travels in a car or in something larger such as an SUV or even MPV, chances are the radio would be turned on at the very least. Well, there might be more than meets the eye for longer distance routes, especially when you take into consideration how children would fit into the ride without asking you “Are we there yet?” every 10 minutes. Keeping them occupied with the latest movies on a mobile device is fine and dandy, but won’t it be better if they had a larger sized screen located into the back of the headrest? VOXXHirschmann latest foray into automotive rear seat vehicle infotainment has resulted in EVO, which intends to bring the in-home TV entertainment experience in your vehicle.
Nobody likes to get caught by the police for speeding, as it might involve some demerit points in select countries, not to mention the very painful experience of a monetary fine in the form of a ticket. Of course, some apps do inform us that there is a police waiting ahead of us in the road right up ahead, but a lot of that depends on accurate reporting. K40 Electronics has promised that the K40 Laser Defuser Optix is able to help you prevent yourself from getting fined by the police thanks to the latest addition to its police laser gun jammer product range.
When you work a job that pays well but sucks up your life, every spare minute you can take for yourself is a treasure. You don’t mind paying for a taxi when you could take the $2 bus because it’s not only quieter and cleaner, but you’ll get to your destination in a fraction of the time. If you live only a few miles from work and don’t want to deal with transit, but also don’t want to find a parking spot, personal transporters might come up in your search bar.
