10 amazing driving tricks that will make you a better driver and your life easier. These tips are useful for both beginners and professionals. Are you an experienced driver? Then you surely know that having a car is not easy. You have to deal with many little problems all the time: a scratch here, window crack there… You also have to watch out for the safety of your car. Do you want to learn how to keep your coffee cup safe at speed? To make your life easier, we collected some tips that are useful for both beginners and professionals! TIMESTAMPS Nail polish can almost hide a small scratch 0:47 Clear nail polish can stop a windshield crack 1:17 Turn the steering wheel when you need to leave the car 1:37 Get rid of the bright sun 2:08 A bay leaf to prevent car sickness 2:36 A smart sunglasses holder 2:57 A lemon helps to prevent drowsiness while driving 3:21 Enhanced cupholder 3:46 Hang a tennis ball in the garage 4:15 Check the oil quality 4:40 Check the gas quality 5:43 Super fast car ventilation 6:55 Use static electricity to fight with your pet's hair 7:25 How to avoid car doors' freezing 8:00 Use potato not to let your car windows fog 8:20 A road-trip with kids 8:46 SUMMARY - After you find the perfect match, put some on the scratch. After the nail polish dries, just buff the scratch a little to make it smooth. - To combat such cracks, use clear nail polish. Put 2 or 3 layers on the crack, and it will stop the crack from growing. - The steering wheel is already too hot to touch! To avoid this, turn the steering wheel by 180 degrees when leaving the car. The part you use to drive will stay in the shadow. - In order not to get blinded by the sun, take an acrylic sheet and put it on the windshield. Acrylic is easily attached to the windshield thanks to static electricity, and it protects your eyes from ultraviolet rays very well. - If you've got a long road ahead of you and you are worried that you might get car sick, there is a fantastic solution! You may be surprised, but you just need to put a bay leaf under your tongue. - Are you one of those people who doesn't know where to put their sunglasses in the car? There is just the place: put them on the sun visor. This way you'll make sure your glasses won't fall on a bumpy road. - If you are feeling a bit drowsy when driving, put a piece of lemon under your tongue. This will wake you up very quickly. But still, we don't recommend you to drive when you are tired. - This advice will come in handy to those who find that their cupholder isn't reliable enough. Put a little silicone cupcake case on the bottom of the cupholder. This way, your coffee cup will be secured inside, and all the little pieces of trash will be in the case. - A tennis ball hanging in the garage can be a point which shows that a wall is near. The ball will help you to feel the car's size more easily, so you won't drive further than necessary. - Heat the engine for 5-10 minutes, and cut the ignition off. Open the hood, and put a couple of oil drops onto a sheet of paper. Carefully take the sheet in a warm place and wait for 2 hours for the oil to dry. - Put a drop of gas on a white sheet of paper, blow on it, and wait for the drop to evaporate. If the paper is perfectly white after the experiment, it means that you are using good-quality gas. If there is a greasy spot, it means there is some kerosene in the gas. - Open a door and one of the front windows. Then open and close the door on the opposite side of the car. Do it a couple of times - this trick helps to cool down the car quickly, and it also gets rid of unpleasant smells easily. - All you need is a pair of latex gloves. Put them on and rub your gloved hands against the carpet. It will create static electricity which in turn will help pet hair to resurface. - When the windows in the car start fogging from the inside, you need to cut a potato in two parts. Then rub the potato on the windows from the inside and let them dry. - Use a shower organizer to keep everything you need on the way, from diapers to bottles with water and some games. Just fix it to the seat in front of you and enjoy your organized ride!

People love to drive bunched up on the highway. Dad was a bus driver and taughte to drive in the middle. There's a bunch of cars ahead of u and a bunch in the back. Speed up so u r in the middle by yourself. U can see any accident in time to get outta the way and watch for any idiots behind u. Never been in a wreck.

Just fly your own plane to where you want to go. I wish that the rules were from old Germany from world war 2 because all you had to do is just drive responsibly and figure out what speed you want to go and for Aviation all you had to do was only two chats of a theory lesson then taxi the plane around the runway then take off then do a few manoeuvres then land the plane.

If your car interior has smells, heat up (to the point of boiling) 2 liters of apple cider vinegar (make sure it is evaporating from the heat <you see smoke>) and put it into 2 dishes of any kind equally and place them where the driver & co-driver's feet are as front as possible <if your car has vents under their seats you can put the equal amount on the floor of the back seats like mine does> and then turn on the heating (AC if you want or not doesn't matter) to the maximum power, turn on air circulation (the little rounded arrow in your AC controls) and set it to direct all the power to the legs. Close the car and leave it running like that for some 20-30 minutes and voila - your car will smell of vinegar for a while a couple of days myb <mine didn't but each one is unique according to the chemical substances used in the car's interior, some catch the smell some don't>, but the bad smells will probably be gone :)

Super glue will do a lot better on a scratch. Lasts much longer too. You can fill it and scrape the excess off with a single edge razor blade. Use several layers to fill it.

when life gives you lemons, put them in the glove compartment so that when you feel drowsy you can pull out a chopping board and a knife and cut a slice of lemon and eat it.

To avoid steam on windows: Take a sock and fill it with "cat toilet gravel - the one which clump". It will keep the steam away from the inside windows. Place the sock under the carseat. It work at least 2 years. Kind regards from Denmark 🇩🇰

Oil needs to be replaced because of acidity first, then contamination. For most people, just change your oil/filter every spring and run you car for 30 minutes+ every month to remove moisture in the oil...moisture creates acid.

Solution to #12. Put a sun shade on your windshield. #8 A piece of wood near the wall. Your tires will hit the wood before you hit the wall, letting you know your close to the wall.
