This Guy Created a Fake Google Maps Traffic Jam With a Wagon Full of Smartphones

Google Maps has changed the way we drive, allowing us to easily find directions to our destination while understanding the amount of traffic we may hit along the way, with heavy trafficked areas appearing red or orange on our maps. A Berlin-based artist, Simon Weckert, tested a hack just to see how much control Google Maps has over urban areas. He roamed a Berlin street with a wagon and 99 smartphones and successfully created a traffic jam on Google Maps - turning the route red on smartphones.

Turns out turning a green road red is a pretty easy hack— if you have a wagon full of smartphones.

There is a simple and no-cost way to check the tread on your tires. With the simple use of an Abe Lincoln penny, you can quickly determine whether or not you need to buy new tires.http://www.firestonecompleteautocare.com/pennytiretest/ta...

This is Cruise, GM, and Honda's Fully Autonomous Vehicle

Level 5 automation is the dream: a self-driving vehicle that doesn't need a driver and is devoid of steering wheel and pedals. That's what Cruise is trying to accomplish with this vehicle for an upcoming ride-hailing service in partnership with GM and Honda. The three companies have researched what ride-hailing customers want out of a service. That means talking to a lot of Lyft and Uber customers, parsing their ideas and feedback, and building what the partnership believes is a vehicle that delivers what people want in an electrified, autonomous package.

The Cruise Origin shuttle is only the first step toward the complex world of autonomy, so don't expect it on roads anytime soon.

Volvo to give away cars if there's a safety during the Super Bowl

The commercial advertising during each Super Bowl game is known for being outlandish and memorable. The Super Bowl is on Sunday, February 2 this year and the ads are coming. Volvo is the first to kick things off before the big game with the announcement of Safety Sunday, their game day promotion in which they vow to give away 1 million dollars worth of vehicles. There's just one simple thing that has to happen during the Super Bowl game - at least one team needs to score a safety.

Playing a game of chance, Volvo has announced it will give away $1,000,000 worth of cars in the rare case that a safety occurs during Super Bowl LIV.

How to Clean Your Headlights and Make Them Shine Like New

With shorter days and gloomy skies, you will most likely find yourself turning on your headlights more often. If you notice that your headlights look yellow or cloudy, a headlight restoration is recommended. We often underestimate the importance of having clear headlights - not only do these powerful beams let you see the road, they let other motorists see you!

Over time, the plastic that makes up your headlights will degrade and cloud over. If yours aren't shining quite like they used to, here's how to clean your headlights.

How To Fix Your Car's Heater

When winter arrives, the last thing you want breaking down is your car's heater. Not only is a frosty car inconvenient—it's also dangerous. Heat is needed to remove ice and fog build-up on your windshield. Without a working heater, your ability to see the road clearly can be severely hindered. If you notice that your heater is faulty or doesn't work as efficiently as it used to, it's time to have it fixed!

Here's what to do if your vehicle is struggling to turn up the heat.
