Don’t neglect your turn signal lights! These lights are what tell people around you where you will be turning or making a lane change. Everyone has driven behind that one driver who has absolutely no consideration for other drivers in the area and makes lane changes in the last minute, forcing other people to slam onto their brakes. Sometimes, people have extremely dim turn signals that you can hardly see the turn signal light behind the housing anyway. Fortunately, bad habits can be fixed and lights can be swapped. These 12272 LED bulbs are powered by 4 pieces of CREE XB-D LED lights that is way brighter than the stock bulb to give you a better look and increased safety.
What’s under this new Honda Civic Type-R besides the icicles that have formed on the undercarriage? It’s got a new 2-liter turbo engine, 280 horse power, Brembo brakes, and a body kit that would make car fans turn green with envy. News like this isn’t exactly kept a secret since it’s pretty out in the open that this car is lusting over the FWD Nurburgring record.
Since we are partial to all things lighting related, we noticed the LED lights on the roof bar! This looks pretty appropriate for the snow and winter that the Civic Type-R is conquering at the moment. Rumor has it that the VTEC turbo engine will have 300hp, but only time will tell.
If you have a Scion FR-S, you definitely must consider getting a fog light upgrade. OEM fit LED fog lights give you a factory look, all the while staying way more affordable than the ones right off the manufacturer’s assembly line. These high power LED fog lights match well with the headlights and you will notice that you can’t have one without the other. The size is a very popular 3.5" that many car enthusiasts prefer, making this is very desirable set of LED fog lamps.
Seems like before we get to fully autonomous cars, the milestone that technology will conquer before are cars that would be able to find their own parking space. As a driver, all you will need to do is pull up to a parking garage, get out of your vehicle, and leave it to find a parking spot by itself. When you need to retrieve your car, simply summon it back and it will already be waiting for you at a specially designated area in front of the parking garage. Those days of aimlessly circling around for a parking spot and having to fight tooth a nail with other irate shoppers for that one measly spot between two full size SUVs are coming to a close. Imagine never having to find a parking space again.
This year’s CES is totally big on autonomous cars and all of the new technology that comes with it. It’s amazing that people are not talking about "if" when it comes to self-driving cars, but asking questions like when it will be available to the average consumer. There are plenty of positives about driverless cars, but there are a ton of negative effects that will occur as well.
Autonomous cars will be able to brake in time to prevent an accident or move out of the way. The only collisions that occur will be caused by people who are still actively driving. Since people don’t have to drive, they also have more time on their hands that they can spend with family together, or even eat breakfast for those who have a longer commute to work. They can catch up on news, text, and do things that would otherwise be against the law. The occupant’s state is also something that benefits excessively from autonomous cars. People who are underage, overage, don’t have a driver license, distracted, or intoxicated will be able to safely get to their destination. There are many accidents and deaths related to drunk driving that would be completely eliminated if those who are intoxicated don’t drive.
However, on the other side of the spectrum, there will be a loss of jobs that are directly related to driving, such as taxis, buses, and ride-sharing services. These people who have been in the industry their entire lives will have their livelihood completely uprooted. The computer chip could be possibly hacked and the autonomous car could be laden with bombs as a terrorist attack as well. If the need arises that a driver has to manually take over the driving duties, there is the issue of lack of experience of someone who does not know how to drive or understand the rules of the road.
Even so, there are plenty of people who are looking forward to autonomous cars and the big name car manufacturers are perfecting the technology so that driverless cars will play a big part of the future. This is just like the 1970s where computers were beginning to take root and now they are a necessity in our daily lives.
Audi has been showcased this year with an A7 driving by itself from San Francisco all the way to Las Vegas!
Look Ma, no hands!
