Know your transmission fluid

In Check Your 710 we talked about checking the different fluids in your car, and making sure these fluids are at the right level; adding new fluid, whether it be oil, wiper wash or engine coolant if needed.  What some might not realize, including until recently yours truly, is that there are different types of […]

DUI Simulator

It’s typical enough; you’re out on the town with your friends after a long work week, having a good time, hitting the local bars for a few drinks, maybe sing some karaoke.  Your friends ask you if you want a ride home, because they think you’ve had one too many – after all, you were […]

Tips for Parents of New Drivers

A new school year is upon us, and with it, a slew of new student drivers are taking to the roads.  They grow up so fast, don’t they?  It seems like just yesterday you were buckling them into their car seat, and now they’re asking you for the keys to the car; so they can […]

Click It – Click It Good

Click it, or ticket. It’s a catchy if albeit unnerving phrase used by the National Highway Safety Administration, to encourage people to wear their safety belt. No one wants to get stopped, let alone get a ticket, just for not wearing a seatbelt. It seems like such a hassle sometimes, doesn’t it? You don’t plan […]

Driver Awareness

SimuRide Home features a particularly special exercise; rock slides! This isn’t so much because rock slides are common throughout the US or the world at large, but rather for drivers using our driving simulator to practice a critical driving skill – defensive driving. Throughout the driving course, the other cars on the road obey all […]

The Dreaded Roundabout

Roundabouts.  Many people seem to curse their existence, and at times lament them being installed in new communities that never had them before.  While often new ideas or the requirement of new skill sets can be daunting; often education and understanding can go a long way towards relieving some of the major concerns.  And as […]

Check your 710

Have you looked under the 710 cap in your car lately? If you haven’t, you should; it’s vital to your car, and if the 710 is too low, you could damage your car. You may be asking, “What is 710? Why can’t I find it on my car?” If you can’t find it, it may […]

All Season Skid Control

With few exceptions, most sequels never seem to quite live up to the original that spawned them.  You may enjoy them for what they are, but it’s just never the same as the first time.  Then there are the follow-ups you can unequivocally ask, “Was that really necessary?”  Case in point, take “Polar Vortex 2;” […]
