    1399906800

    Seems everybody's got to have a sinkhole nowadays, the sudden collapse of huge chunks of ground swallowing cars and homes in Baltimore, Buckinghamshire, Chicago, Ohio, and seemingly every week, Florida.

    1399388400

    Often dashcam footage from Russia shows some of the worst driving imaginable, but this is an exception. The Volvo truck driver in this video definitely earned himself a drink or two at the end of the day after making it through this potentially horrific crash. As do the folks at Volvo that ...

    1398704340

    Video: Russian driver attempts foolish jump start by bus, hilarity ensues
    1393376400

    It's frustrating when your car won't start. It's doubly frustrating when it's due to a battery issue and triply troubling when you don't have a set of jumper cables handy. Provided you own a car with a manual transmission, though, push- or pull-starting is a last-ditch tactic for when you ...

    Parallel parking isn't easy an easy task, as it can often pose a problem to many motorists (as seen in our previous video showing the best parking fails of all time)...
