Car Abilities – Knowing How To Drive City-Like

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

You cannot deny that you have seen yourself speeding more than once, or running red lights especially when you are in a hurry. You also have to admit that you sometimes send messages or call, or even check your electronic mail over your mobile while driving.
