What Causes Traffic Jams? (4) Comments Add a Comment » By Natalie Josef September 25th 2012 Where I live, in the San Francisco Bay Area, traffic jams are as common as the fog. A few weeks ago, I drove up to Sebastopol from San Francisco and before I knew it, my leisurely drive had turned into stop-and-go traffic. The traffic was so bad, I had to turn around to head back to the city before I had reached my destination so I wouldn’t be late for another appointment. When I turned back and started heading the other way, suddenly I was in traffic again. I had seen the roadway on my way up and there had been no traffic—none at all—and now it was crawling along.

Your Check Engine Light Is On...Now What?

Your Check Engine Light Is On...Now What? Posted April 27, 2015 by Bobby GagliniinShare0 Over 8% of drivers on the road today have a check engine light on. Unfortunately, the vast majority of those drivers won’t get it checked out for months. But hey, can you blame them? If everything seems fine, why waste a costly diagnostic to get it checked out? Or, perhaps there’s that desire to avoid the possibility of paying a lot of money to get it fixed? Well, it’s not always so easy to decide what to do. Let’s go through a common example.

Customers: 7 Reasons Why You Should Treat Your Mechanic Better Posted January 22, 2015 by Bobby GagliniinShare0 While most customers engage their mechanic with courtesy and friendliness, some people insist on treating mechanics badly, whether it’s constantly calling them for an update on your car, or telling them that your uncle’s cousin’s brother-in-law knows the problem better than they do. Regardless of what it is, if you’re one of those people, here are 7 solid reasons why you should treat mechanics better the next time you go to one. 1. They're just trying to make an honest living. The few dishonest mechanics out are the ones that give everyone else a bad reputation. People always want to talk about or review a terrible experience, but not always a good one. When a mechanic gives you a quote, don’t immediately think they’re tying to screw you over. Most are no different from you or me. They get in at 8am, work hard all d ... read more
