Vacation Time!

I haven’t really gone on a vacation for a few years now but this year, I vowed to have at least a few days of R&R or I’ll go crazy!

It’s school break so the kids will make me crazier even more that they are home all the time, lol. Plus, work has gone on a different level and is giving me a lot of stress lately. Thus, several vacations are needed to help me relax a little and enjoy my family.

Cars vs Motorbikes – Why a Car is Safer

It is often said that riding motorbikes is very dangerous, and that driving a car is a far safer option. This is a highly contentious issue, however there are merits to both sides of the argument. Here are a few key points to consider in the car vs motorbike debate.

Visibility

While driving a car, your degree of visibility is often reliant on the make, model and styling of your vehicle. Vans, 4WD’s and trucks have far greater visibility than cars which are lower to the road. When riding a motorbike, the barriers to your vision are far less than in a car, and the riding position instantly gives you an advantage when it comes to visibility. This allows a motorbike rider to assess and react to a potentially dangerous situation in a shorter time than someone in a car with poor visibility.
