Dash Cam

Continuing to grow in popularity in the US, dash cams have been commonplace in the rest of the world for years. They provide great peace of mind, capturing video of any accidents and keeping break-ins down. They’re also a great way to keep tabs on your teen driver and will capture surprisingly clear shots for any road trip montages you want to make. With so many benefits to having a video of your drive, it’s easy to see why dash cams aren’t just for police cars anymore.

 

Heads Up Displays

Also known as HUDs, heads up displays are improving rapidly and provide safety and information in a stylish package. Speed, RPMs, and gauges are projected on the bottom of your windshield, so your eyes never have to leave the road. Each HUD is different, providing information ranging from oil and water temp to navigation and weather updates. HUDs are a great way to bring a futuristic feel to your vehicle while keeping you safer on the road.

 

Diagnostic Scanner

Another helpful piece of car technology is the diagnostic scanner. You can quit ignoring your check engine and other warning lights and find out what’s causing them for a modest price. You had to visit a mechanic or car parts store in the not-so-distant past to get this kind of information. In 2022, it can all be in the palm of your hand

Storage Organizers

For many of us, the backseat or trunk of our vehicle serves many purposes. It can be a closet full of clothes one day and a food pantry the next. Instead of just throwing everything into a pile in the back, look into the vehicle storage organizers available on the market. You can find model specific organizers or basic storage options for every area of your car. They’re a great add-on if you drive for companies like Postmates and GrubHub, keeping your deliveries secure on the trip. Plus, you’ll never have to hunt for that pair of shoes or gym bag ever again!

 

Mini-Fridge

The quickest way to upgrade your road trip is to add a mini-fridge. Most models use a simple 12-volt plugin, so they’ll work in almost every vehicle. You can keep a surprising amount of food and drinks cold while on the go, and you’ll save time by not pulling over every time you need a drink. Food and beverages can add up quickly on the road, so stock up before you leave and let your car do the cooling.

 

Neck and Back Massagers

There isn’t a better way to leave your work stress behind than to spend your commute getting a massage. This is a must-own for anyone who spends time in traffic jams or has a crazy amount of stress at work. Most models have heating and cooling features, providing you maximum comfort all year long. These neck and back massagers typically run on 12-volt power and will help you add miles to your road trip without the typical stiffness and sore body. If you spend hours a week in your vehicle, what are you waiting for?

With all of this remarkable technology, your commute doesn’t have to be the most dreaded part of your day. Dashcams and heads up displays continue to get better and will make every trip you take safer. Improved storage options, portable refrigerators, and 12-volt massagers have turned your daily driver into a luxury vehicle. Load up on this excellent car technology in 2022, and start looking forward to your commute right away!

President Joe Biden has signed Democrats’ landmark climate change and health care bill. It's the “final piece” of the president's pared-down domestic agenda as he aims to boost his party’s standing with voters ahead of midterm elections. Biden says, “The American people won, and the special interests lost.” The legislation includes the biggest federal investment ever to fight climate change — some $375 billion over a decade. It also caps prescription drug costs at $2,000 out-of-pocket annually for Medicare recipients, and helps an estimated 13 million Americans pay for health care insurance by extending subsidies provided during the coronavirus pandemic.

The nation’s top public health agency is relaxing its COVID-19 guidelines and dropping the recommendation that Americans quarantine themselves if they come into close contact with an infected person. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also said Thursday that people no longer need to stay at least 6 feet away from others. The changes come more than 2 1/2 years after the start of the pandemic. They are driven by a recognition that an estimated 95% of Americans 16 and older have acquired some level of immunity, either from being vaccinated or infected.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp says he will spend up to $1.2 billion on payments of $350 apiece to poorer Georgians. More than 3 million people who were benefitting from Medicaid, subsidized child health insurance, food stamps or cash welfare assistance as of July 31 will get the money. A Kemp spokesperson said Monday that payments will start as early as September. The decision will put money in the hands of less affluent Georgians as November's election approaches. Democrat Stacey Abrams criticizes the decision as one of Kemp's "election-year vote buying schemes.” Kemp's challenger for governor says it's hypocritical for Kemp to tout federal spending that he has criticized.
