How cold temperatures can affect your car and fuel economy :

🚘On cold days, it takes much longer for your engine to reach its optimum operating temperature. This is a particularly big problem for short trips, as the car will spend most of it working at a less-than-optimal temperature, subsequently leading to poor fuel economy.
🚘Engine oil thickens in cold conditions. This can lead to friction between moving parts in the engine and transmission system, meaning your car will burn fuel unnecessarily.
🚘Electrical components, such as fans, defrosters, wipers and heated seats, put additional strain on the battery. This in turn makes it more difficult for the alternator to keep the battery charged — leading to a drop in fuel efficiency.
🚘On freezing cold mornings, it’s often necessary to warm up your car to defrost and demist the windscreen. Idling like this has a massive impact on fuel economy, with your car achieving zero MPG for the duration.
🚘Cold air is thicker and denser than warm air, increasing the aerodynamic drag on your car. This means the engine has to work harder, particularly at motorway speeds.
🚘Tire pressures decrease slightly in very cold temperatures, increasing the car’s.

It’s an interesting question right? Well- here are the numbers (and not just on women and men)

🚦WOMEN VS. MEN🚦
•Men cause 6.1 million accidents per year and women cause 4.4 million per year (National Highway Safety Administration)
•105.7 million women and 104.3 million men have drivers licenses (University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute)
•On average, men drive 16,550 miles and women drive 10,142 miles per year
That means men drive about 30 percent more miles than women. Yet, they’re implicated in slightly less than 30 percent of car accidents. Men do cause more accidents, but they are actually less at-risk than women, by a small margin.

🚦SENIORS VS. TEENS🚦
•According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), drivers ages 16-19 are three times more likely to crash than drivers over 20.
•12.2 percent of car accidents are the responsibility of teen drivers while 7.5 percent of accidents are caused by drivers over 65.

🚦CYCLIST VS DRIVERS🚦
•Recent studies suggest that drivers and cyclists are equally responsible for causing bike accidents.
•That said, a cyclists is twice as likely as a motorist to get into an accident. Most of these accidents, however, have nothing to do with cars – only a third of bicycle accidents are car collisions. This also includes situations where bikers were in bike lanes, physically walled off areas, and semi-walled areas with safety cones or other traffic equipment.

Ok test time people! How do you properly set your mirrors? Here’s a helpful guide. What do your mirrors look like?

Side-view mirrors
1. To adjust the driver's side-view mirror, place your head against the left side window and set the mirror so you can just barely see the side of the car in the mirror's right side.
2. To adjust the passenger's side-view mirror, position your head so that it is just above the center console.

We tend to think a blind spot is just a simple check over our shoulders. In truth, it can be so much more than that. Below are some helpful reminders about what you should be checking. -You must check the blind spot before opening the driver’s door.
-Be aware that every window or door pillar is a blind spot. -Your passenger’s head restraint is a blind spot.
-Your passenger’s head is a blind spot.
-The interior mirror and exterior mirrors are blind spots.
-When it rains, that part of the windscreen not covered by the sweep of the wiper blades becomes a blind spot.
-Any blind spot can hide a pedestrian or cyclist.
