What Back to School Means for Drivers

Back To School!

It's that time of year again when our mailboxes are brimming with flyers for back to school specials. Pens for a dime? Notebooks for a quarter? Back to school outfits for a toonie? Sounds good! We'll take a dozen of each!

"Back to school" means something else entirely for drivers

"Back to school" should be synonymous with "SLOW DOWN".

In the summer drivers tend to relax a little because (compared to winter driving) the roads are nice and dry and we can see further ahead. The sun is out for much longer and people take vacations, so there are fewer people on the roads. In other words, it's much easier to drive safely in the summer and (if we were to be honest with ourselves) we may slack a little in our driving...

Four Great Mobile Apps for Drivers

We live in a world where news can travel quickly

While it's true that some news ends up being fake (Justin Timberlake is still alive and the Balloon Boy never was in the balloon) technology can be harnessed positively to make our lives better. Drivers have great tools available to help them arrive at their destinations on time and safely.

The following are some helpful apps for drivers that we think are valuable

Twitter: Twitter is a great tool that provides real time information. Sometimes it's not so helpful (I don't care what kind of sandwich you're eating) but sometimes it can be helpful. Use Twitter's search function (http://search.twitter.com) to help you plan your route. Search for the name of your city or town plus the word...

Sending Your Child to College? Make Sure They're Ready With These Essential Items

The Essentials For Students in College

When a parent sends their children off to college, they'll send them on their way with all of the essentials that these students need to live while studying: Clean bedding and towels, laundry soap, and an industrial-sized box of macaroni and cheese.

What about transportation?

If your university-aged child is bringing a vehicle to college, make sure that they will be safe while driving. The vehicles of college students might not be the safest or most reliable pieces of machinery on the road. So while you should be sure that they have clean underwear to wear, you should also make sure that they can get to and from class safely.

Give them the gift of safety by bringing their vehicle in for a...

What's the Difference between Financing and Leasing a Vehicle and which one is Right for You?

To Finance Or Lease?

If you are thinking about getting a new vehicle, one of the things you'll need to consider is whether you want to finance your vehicle or lease it.

Financing

Financing your vehicle is where you borrow the money to buy it. You pay regular payments to the lending company. Leasing your vehicle is where you borrow the vehicle and pay regular payments to the company lending it to you.

With financing, you own the car. If you cannot make payments, the lending company will repossess the car to try and sell it and recoup what they couldn't collect from you. With leasing, the dealership owns the car. If you cannot make payments, the dealership will repossess the car to try and recoup what they couldn't collect from...

Is It More Dangerous to Drive Today?

Is It Safer To Drive A Vehicle Today?

With all the modern advancements in safety technology, it might seem like it should be safer for us to drive today than ever before. But is that really the case?

When cars were first invented, they were such a novelty that only a few people had them and everyone approached them with caution. You couldn't go very fast in them and they weren't completely covered against the elements.

Today, vehicles are everywhere. Families have more than one vehicle. Vehicles go faster and are safer than ever before.

That Doesn't Necessarily Make It Safer To Drive We have more and more people using the same number of roads. Therefore, roads are more congested and that congestion can lead to collisions...
