• Uncaring husband or just letting her get it on her own?

    We live on the east coast (NC) which just got hit by the massive winter storm. Everything is pretty much snowed in and iced over. My wife decided that she couldn't just sit at home and enjoy the idea of working from home in her pj's. She's gotta go out and drive in it or go to the store in all this snow and ice. I have an ice scrapper in the back of my SUV. I'm currently sitting in the bed, still with my pjs on and she tells me that the doors are frozen shut on my truck so she can't get in to get the ice scrapper. But she does say the tailgate will life up. The ice scrapper in in the floor of the 3rd row seating. She looks at me and I look at her. Then I say, "well, just climb over the seat to get the scrapper." She looks at me and mumbles, "You expect me to climb over the seat? What kind of man did I marry?" I'm sorry but women kill me saying they can do anything a man can do or they expect the same pay as a man when working the same job but there are just some things they aren't going to do since they have a man. I don't expect her to tear down a transmission but is climbing over a seat to get an ice scrapper beneath her as a woman, especially since she has a husband? Am I an uncaring husband who won't get up, get dressed, go outside, and climb over a seat to get an ice scrapper so my wife can go drive in all this snow and ice?

  • Was my car broken into?

    So I have a Subaru Impreza wagon 2010. Not a WRX.

    So I have a Subaru Impreza wagon 2010. Not a WRX. So when I got to work this morning I locked my car with the key fob and the car beeped to indicate the alarm was turned on. 3 hours later my cars alarm is going off. From inside the building I hit the unlock button on my key fob once to just unlock the driver door and turn the alarm off. I then hit the lock button on the fob and my car would not beep to set the alarm again. Usually that happens when one or more doors are not closed all of the way. So I left it for another half hour until I went out on lunch. I unlocked just the drivers door. So I get in and drive off until I noticed my dashboard light to indicate a door is open was illuminated. I checked my drivers door. Nope light is still on. I look at the back drivers side door and it was unlocked and open a bit. Some people at my workplace don’t believe anyone tried to break into my car but I can’t think of any other reason my the back door would be open and unlocked.

  • Is it legal to brake in the middle of the road when there s no car approaching?

    I like looking at beautiful stuffs and skies. When I drive by, if I want to take a quick look like 20 seconds, can I stop my car by braking but without turning off the engine on a highway if there s no car approaching? If not, how about residential streets?

  • How do you do multiple things at once when driving?

    Best answer: My multiple things, I'm guessing you mean how do you operate the wheel and the pedals and the signals all while watching for threats from every direction. Because if you mean the other thing, like texting and eating lunch while driving, you don't.

    At first, most people require professional instruction and a lot of practice. New drivers have to be reminded to check their mirrors, turn their signals on, slow down for curves and any of the 100 other things that involve driving. Nobody was born good at driving, it's a skill that can only be learned, and experience is the best teacher in the world.

    After a while, all those individual tasks gradually become instinctive. Remember when you learned to ride a bike? At first you couldn't even do it without falling over, then you did it but it was really wobbly for a while, then you could ride all the way down the street without falling, and so on and so forth. Same deal with driving, except your risk of death is a whole lot higher.

  • What happens if you take the keys out of the ignition of a moving car?

    Best answer: Do not remove the key from the ignition. Doing so will lock the steering column, and eliminate any chance for steering control.

    Option 1: Push the transmission from "Drive" to "Neutral". Bring the car to a stop with the parking brake.

    Option 2: Turn off the engine with the key, but leave the key in the ignition. Use the parking brake as above.

    Either case, you should be able to steer, at least somewhat. (If you turn off the engine, you will lose power steering.)

  • Help with spacing while driving?

    Best answer: 1) You need a LOT more practice, at LEAST 50 hours behind the wheel to get more comfortable with it.

    2) I know what you mean. You're talking about spacing to the side and determining that is hard for a lot of people. One way to handle that is to pick a visual reference on the hood or windshield that lines up with the center of the lane or the edge of the road when your spacing is right. A piece of tape or grease pencil mark placed on the windshield or hood makes a good marker if there isn't a ridge, bump, hood ornament or something like that to use as a reference point. Eventually you won't need your cheater mark. You can also use the center stripe on the road to position your car so there is adequate clearance to the right. When in doubt, this is a good fallback to get close to the center stripe.

    3) The safest way to practice is in an empty parking lot where you can set up several traffic cones or empty cardboard boxes or something similar that won't damage your car, and then practice driving along side of them, again using a visual reference point on the hood or windshield.

    4) Something tall like a flagged wood dowel sticking out of the top of a cone or box that you can see above the lower edge of the passenger side window and rear window will help aid in practicing parallel parking.
