Solar powered variable message signs

Seeing political signs along major roads and highways is not uncommon this time of year. With a historical election less than two months away on Nov. 8, supporters and candidates are becoming increasingly active to sway undecided voters to their side.

3 Things You Didn’t Know About Getting Your Car Serviced

Brake repair durham nc

For about a year I was going to the same mechanics for my oil changes, tire alignments and other car care services. It was a local ‘mom and pop’ shop run by the sweetest couple and their German Shepherd dog. I had a couple of brake services done, nothing major, just brake pad replacements and random brake checks.

Then a few days later, I was driving down the road when my back brakes went out. Literall

The sale and purchase of used cars is as booming a business as is the sale and purchase of new cars. As a matter of fact, statistics show that three out of four cars sold are pre-used vehicles.

Keeping your vehicle tuned up is a money-saving and, believe it or not, a time-saving process.
