Can you bring your vehicle to a sudden stop safely? A visitor to the Arrive Alive website sent an email with the attached photo of incorrect placement of traffic signs. I could not help smiling despite knowing that this is a potentially dangerous “road condition” – which I believe has since been addressed by the traffic authorities!

It also reminds us that sometimes we might need to bring our vehicle to a sudden stop – and to have our vehicles properly maintained and the brakes checked!

Sports events are not only keeping us in front of the television, but the reason for thousands of sports enthusiasts travelling to and from sports stadiums across South Africa. We have added a few safety suggestions for our spectators travelling in their own and rental vehicles:

• Check your car’s roadworthiness. Headlights, indicators, stop lights, tail-lights, windscreen wiper blades, mirrors, brakes, steering, tyres, tyre pressures, exhaust system and possible oil or fuel leaks.
• Ensure your windscreen is always clean and scratch-free, both inside and out.
• Make sure your headlight glass is clean, that the bulbs are in good working order and that the lighting system is properly positioned.
• Check that the spare wheel is in good condition and properly inflated. Make sure that you have a serviceable jack and wheel brace.
• Do not overload your vehicle with passengers and baggage. The vehicle will be less stable, difficult to steer and take longer to stop.
• The driver’s control and operating space in the overloaded vehicle is diminished, escalating the chances for an accident.
• The overloaded vehicle cannot accelerate as normal – making it difficult to overtake
• Carry a roadside emergency kit.

We would like to invite all our sports enthusiasts to view the

Ford's BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle)

Published by on Feb 2nd, 2009, 2 Comments

Ford is trying to make it to the exquisite guys club, and announced that their ongoing electric vehicle program will bring the BEV – also known as Project to the market in 2012. Based on the 2010 Ford Focus, the electric vehicle is a joint venture between Ford and Magna International, Inc. which promises a car with a range of up to 100 miles on a single charge. Though supposed to be an affordable ride, there aren’t any official details about it and to be honest we’re not sure if 100 miles are enough for the daily commuter. Wouldn’t a small gas engine do the job well … when needed? [via ]
