Another One Bites the Dust. Government Official in NJ Arrested for Drunk Driving

In the above dash-cam video, you can see the Mayor of Paulsboro, Jeff Hamilton, being arrested for drunk driving.

The mayor looks noticeably disheveled and has trouble walking in the above video.

Drunk driving is a terrible crime, but when a public official does it, it somewhat undermines the efforts of law enforcement.

Lulu the dog says, “Stop Mispronouncing the Names of Japanese Cars.” Grrr…

Hi, my name is Lulu.   Yes, I am a dog.  Like my picture.  I may look like a dog but I know cars.  Pay attention and I’ll teach you a think or two.  My job is to protect you from making a mistake.

Whether it be a Honda Accord, Toyota Corolla, or a Nissan Maxima, many Japanese cars have become synonymous with reliability, yet most  drivers are pronouncing their names entirely wrong! Luckily a YouTube channel devoted to Japanese car modifications (like the ones you’ve seen in the Fast and Furious franchise), clarified the issue. They made a useful video to help us Westerners get their names right. You can watch Mighty Car Mods video right here so you can help your friends and family get it right!

Lulu the dog says, “This New Electric BMW is good as Tesla.”

BMW is releasing two new electric vehicles this year: the BMW i3 and the BMW i8. And by the tone of early reviews, they may have a serious competitor for leading sustainable cars. The i8 is definitely out of range for most household budgets in New Jersey and the rest of the country, with a listing price of $135,925. The i3 however, is a much more accessible vehicle priced at $41,350 and is being reviewed as a potential Tesla Model S alternative. Whether or not this vehicle outsells Tesla, we all know that BMW delivers when it comes to expert craftsmanship, handling, and performance.

Take a look at this track test for the BMW i3, and stay on the lookout for potential discounts at NJ Car Coupons.

5 Cars to Help You Escape a Zombie Outbreak

The Walking Dead back on TV, zombies and terrifying escapes are on the minds of many NJ drivers. This had us asking ourselves, what would be the best car to have in the event of a ‘walking dead’ type apocalypse?

Rather than focus on trim options and design, we looked for cars and trucks with bulk for protection and heavy zombie crushing power. Added size would help greatly in the event of a zombie roadblock.

So here’s a list of the top ten toll cheaters in the state:  Continue reading
