What Happens When You Drive With the Parking Brake On?

Leaving a parking brake on in a vehicle at the same time as driving is a common incidence and an easy mistake to make, specially in case you are using a car you aren't used to.

You maybe surprise if leaving the parking brake on while riding can damage your vehicle's brakes. The solution depends on the rate you have been travelling whilst it turned into, how long you drove with the parking brake engaged, and whether or not your ... Read more

2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan preview: The best, made bigger

It might not be the first super-luxe automaker with an SUV in its lineup, but Rolls-Royce is determined to have the best one, and its name is Cullinan.

If Rolls-Royce didn't make a utility vehicle, it'd be leaving money on the table. It didn't rush one out, though, which is where many automakers get tripped up.

Rolls-Royce clearly wanted to make a car that embodies every inch of its badge, and it seems that the 2019 Cullinan fits the bill.

How Does Power Steering Impact a Vehicle’s Handling?

The goals of power steering
Ideally, power steering would do its job of making steering easier without having any negative effects on handling.

Modern power steering systems that are functioning properly usually don’t have a big, negative impact on handling.

Japanese company creates 'air-conditioned' jacket: Kuchofuku's cool look

Going on open transport can be sweltering whenever of the year, yet is especially horrendous in summer.

Be that as it may, a designer has concocted a reasonable, if hardly stylish, solution - a coat with its own aerating and cooling framework worked in.

The Japanese piece of clothing, which accompanies two little fans sewn into the back, drifts an invigorating breeze around its wearer, regardless of whether in the road or an office.
