    For many people, the image of a perfect life consists of owning a modest home within the suburbs and living happily with their families. Over the past few decades, we have seen a shift in living preferences; while living in dense city centers was once a common preference, the widespread implementation of low-cost single-family housing has […] The post The Hidden Facts About the Suburbs appeared first on Road Crazed.

    Whale IS Dead? Folks thought this humpback whale was dead. However, upon further research, they found that the whale had been ensnared with fishing nets around its flippers. Needless to say, the whale could not swim anywhere. Then looking further, found the net around the tail as well. See how it turns out! What a feat and thank you all at once. We need to do this for everyone!

  • The True Cost of Bad Roads

    Scott Burton
    10 Mar 2014 | 9:22 pm
    $1 to maintain, $7 to rebuild. That’s what the director of the Michigan Department of Transportation says, at least. By this logic, it costs a dollar to keep a road well-maintained for every seven dollars you would have to spend to rebuild it entirely. And according to the superfluously-named American Association of State Highway and Transportation […] The post The True Cost of Bad Roads appeared first on Road Crazed.
  • Is a Car-Free City a Practical Idea?

    1 Jan 2014 | 9:39 pm
    For many of us, it’s nearly impossible to imagine a life without killer rush hours, incessant and problematic road construction, and seemingly endless traffic issues. However distant a world without these elements may seem, though, there was once a time when none of these problems existed. It’s hard to believe that barely more than a […] The post Is a Car-Free City a Practical Idea? appeared first on Road Crazed.

    Driving in the ice can be a daunting task. While most others simply suggest avoiding frozen roads altogether, sometimes it is necessary to face Mother Nature’s wrath and test your luck out on the icy pavement. Although it’s different from what I usually write about on this blog, having to drive in these conditions myself […] The post Driving on Icy Roads appeared first on Road Crazed.

    Once upon a time, a man named Dwight D. Eisenhower championed the formation of a little thing called the Interstate Highway System. Sure, you’ve probably heard of it, and most likely have even driven on it a few hundred times, but do you know what the original intent of this incredibly extensive network of concrete […] The post The Truth About Express Toll Lanes appeared first on Road Crazed.

  • New Idea to Pay for Street Repairs Across Minnesota | kstp

    David Levinson
    16 Apr 2014 | 6:45 am
    KSTP reports on proposed legislation for a Municipal Street Improvement District.  Instead of using money from property taxes, cities could use yearly tax assessments for on-going upgrades. Erhardt says it’s a good investment strategy that actually saves money in the long run. “Wasted money, temporary stuff, into the potholes which will blow out of there in short time and it’s not the potholes, it is the road deteriorating that bad.” As a believer in local autonomy and road maintenance, this seems a good idea. This is a form of value capture, similar to Special…

  • Earthquakes Are Becoming Abundant

    9 Apr 2014 | 5:26 pm
    Fracking can cause earthquakes either by the deed itself or the injection of the waste water. “Before 2009, Oklahoma experienced few 3.0 or higher earthquakes — no more than three a year from 1991 to 2008. But in 2009, the amount of fracking wastewater injected deep into the ground has risen, and so has the number of earthquakes in the state”, reported by climate progress. Really Scary! So, you have heard of the big quakes in California? Well, at least 1/2 of them are caused from fracking. Then add in the fault lines and you have a recipe for a total failure for one state. Now…

Of course you are, because you know that the 2014 Annual National Solar Conference is going to be held at the Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco, and that the ideas and concepts that the attendant experts toss around are going to take us as a society a few steps closer to realizing the dream of fully clean and renewable energy.

  • Tesla Model S

    Here is a behind the scenes look of how a Tesla Model S Car is being produced. They are currently making about 600 per week. The car is put together with the assistance of approximately 100 robots. I find that it is, without a doubt, a streamlined, efficient, production line. Tesla is working really hard to become a new member of the old regime of auto makers. I believe that they are on their way! Even though a Tesla may be a little expensive. Like $610/month car note, they are really trying to get it down so that we all can have a shot at buying one. Until then, it is one of the most…
