Uber has officially decided that the people of Pittsburgh are disposable, as they have started using self-driving cars to pick people up there as their first test location.




Pittsburgh is known for having dinosaur-sized potholes...








With Pittsburgh's confusing-to-navigate-roads, the cars (and passengers) def have their tests ahead of them.






The reviews are in, and folks aren't pleased, but technology always marches onward...






Hey, it could be worse I guess.

Tesla recently pushed an update to software on the Model S and Model X that included a not-so-secret Easter egg.  Elon Musk announced in a Tweet that if you press the autopilot button four times in quick succession, this rainbow road will pop up in the dashboard screen. Unfortunately, the new level doesn't include any theme music:

The Roselle, Illinois police department posting a picture of a car with a 15-foot tree sticking out of it on their Facebook page with this description:

A few weeks ago, a Roselle police officer saw a car driving southbound on Roselle Road with a 15-foot tree embedded in the front grill of the car. After stopping the driver, he also noticed the airbags had been deployed (apparently from hitting the tree). After an investigation, the Roselle officer arrested the driver for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.

Yet another reason why you should not drink and drive!

This dashcam video actually shows her driving around with the tree sticking out of her car:

It happens so fast but the reporter, Alex Savage, managed to jump out of the way in the nick of time. He posted a follow up video on Facebook assuring everyone he was okay and crediting his photographer, Chip Vaughan, with shouting the alert that saved his life.

'Good deeds don't go unpunished,' demonstrated Mother Nature, or Jack Frost.


24-year-old Matthew Bove hit Twitter Monday morning to share a spectacular photo, which depicts an impossible stroke of bad luck. Or this dude dipped overcharged his karma bank recently. Either way Bove made the safe decision to leave his car overnight by a bar him and his friends had spent their evening at. So Kudos to Bove for making the right call.


What you see here is the icy aftermath of what's called the lake-effect phenomenon. This takes place when a cold front absorbs moisture as it passes over a big, warm body of water, and then tends to produce absurd amounts of snowfall.


For a moment there we thought this might be the latest in a string of prior Jimmy Kimmel vs. John Krasinski & Emily Blunt pranks. In case you were unaware those two star-studded teams have been exchanging Christmas-wrapped cars for blows in an epic ongoing prank war.

Here's something to make you smile.

A British man has created a drivable, adult-size version of the classic Little Tikes car. And it could be all yours if you get the winning bid on Ebay.

The colorful car was created by Mechanic John Bitmead and his brother Geoff back in 2013, and has been used to raise money for children's charities across the country.

The car is listed at £21,500, or $33,264, and has about 5,000 miles on it.
