Saudi woman goes for a drive around Riyadh to prove that women can in fact drive and that driving doesn’t damage a woman’s ovaries

Recently, the Saudi government made a statement that women shouldn’t be driving because driving can “damage their ovaries”. So one Saudi woman, against local laws prohibiting women from driving a car, took to the streets to drive around town. Oddly enough, none of the other drivers seemed to give a shit, and she had to deal with crappy traffic like everyone else. And her ovaries are just fine.

Seattle news station tests three people’s driving abilities on weed

Seattle-based KIRO-TV set up a driving course and had three stoned volunteers take a driving test to “show what stoned driving looks like and the danger on the road.” The drivers first got high on the marijuana strain, Blueberry Trainwreck, and then got behind the wheel.

tl;dw: All three people ended up with waaaaay more THC in their system than the legal limit and still drove mostly fine. Slow, but fine.

At the X Games this weekend, two drivers did the first ever double car double loop

And on a bright orange Hot Wheels track nonetheless. The drivers were Tanner Foust and stuntman Greg Tracey.

Driving like an idiot in Saudi Arabia is all fun and games til you hit a bus head on

There’s hundreds and hundres of videos out there of stupid young rich Saudi guys driving like morons— granted, morons with some pretty good driving skill— but morons nonetheless. And in almost all of these, while there’s some close calls, no one’s injured. Except this time. The video isn’t graphic until you learn that both people in the car died from this. 

Not even once. And especially not while waving AK-47s out the window. And they’re worried about women drivers?

What could make Saudi trick driving even crazier? Assault rifles.

Young Saudi men have become famous across the internet for their insane trick driving on Saudi roads. Too much money, with powerful cars and too much time on their hands and all that… But what could make these driving stunts even more dangerous? Oh, I don’t know… adding assault rifles into the mix?

IHC After Dark: Millions of lives depend on you watching this PSA about reckless driving. 

Think about it next time you’re behind the wheel.

Chinese dad lets his four year old daughter drive the car through Beijing traffic

Traffic sucks. Driving to work sucks. But if you’ve got a little kid, why not have them do the driving for you? They’ll love the challenge and the responsibility and you can get a little shut-eye. In the US and most other civilized countries, letting your four year old daughter take the wheel might be frowned upon, but this one dad in Beijing was able to have his kid drive him apparently without much hassle. So why don’t we let four year olds drive?

E3 2011: Microsoft unveils the Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel
Microsoft’s never had an official first-party wireless driving wheel for the 360 and when the Kinect came out, I guess they were just depending on you sitting on your couch making goofy child-like steering wheel motions with your hands forever.
But today at E3, they unveiled their version of the Wii steering wheel, with the Wireless Speed Wheel, which will retail at $59.99. Some of the wheel’s features including a standard 360 controller button layout with trigger buttons for the gas and brake, haptic feedback and rumble and green bands of lights along each handle providing additional visual feedback. There’s no mention of it being a motion-controlled wheel in the press release, but none of the product shots show a base or a stand, or indicate that it’s supposed to be used in any other manner than just holding it in your hands like a regular wireless controller.

Do not text and drive

Also, keep both your hands on the damn steering wheel while you’re trying to get video of a teen driving texting while driving. This video would have been so much funnier if the internet vigilante had been the one to swerve into oncoming traffic.

Why do most countries drive on the right and some on the left?

Almost everywhere around the globe, people drive on the right-hand side of the road. Except for Great Britain, some of its former colonies and Japan, who drive on the left. How did that come about? It turns out, there’s a perfectly sensible explanation.

New technology could lead to hands-free driving

Like it or not, both companies and countries are already starting to develop systems and infrastructures for self-navigating cars. On the one hand, it means being able to read the newspaper or take a nap on the way to work and on the other hand, it might mean that you can’t tear ass down the highway in your Mustang. But a system called SARTRE that perhaps is the best of both worlds is one that would pull cars along in an optional self-driving caravan.
