Essential Gadgets for Responsible Drivers

Being a responsible driver isn’t easy when the entire road is against you. Not only do many drivers seem to pay absolutely no attention to the road or other people, they also don’t seem to understand how to driver their vehicles properly. This is why a course in defensive driving is perhaps the most useful thing any responsible driver could invest in. However, even if you have the knowledge to drive safely and account for other people, that doesn’t mean you’re going to be able to avoid accidents.


If you truly want to be a responsible driver, you’re going to have to invest a little more money into your vehicle and here are just some of the essential gadgets.




Dashboard Camera
You’re going to have to record everything that happens if you want to make a good insurance claim should you end up in an accident that wasn’t your fault. Not only can it help you, but your dashboard camera can make a huge difference to other people’s insurance claims as well. For instance, if your dashboard camera catches drivers who are speeding or manages to record what really happened in an incident that wasn’t your fault, you could potentially help those drivers seek justice by giving them what was recorded on your dashboard camera.




Emergency Lights
One of the most important things to carry is a set of lights for emergency vehicles. For instance, you could be an emergency first responder and instead of driving past traffic and beeping at everyone who’s in your way, you should simply attach it to the top of your vehicle and signal to everyone that you’re an emergency vehicle that has to get somewhere as soon as possible. There are also other emergency lights. For example, you could have broken down in the middle of the road and you’re going to need some emergency strobe lights to indicate to oncoming drivers that you can’t move from your position. It’s also helpful for letting people know that you’ve broken down when it’s dark.




Car Maintenance Devices
If you want to keep your car in great shape, then you’d better carry some handy tech such as a tire pressure gauge and a vehicle diagnostics device. A digital tire pressure gauge will let you accurately examine the pressure inside of each tire. Tire pressure is something that every driver should be monitoring before they set off on the road because it can negatively affect the way your vehicle handles. Too much pressure and you lose traction and it can damage the tire. Too little pressure and your car will be unresponsive and could put your safety at risk.

A typical vehicle diagnosis device plugs into the OBD-II port of your vehicle. Where this is located depends on the make and model of your vehicle, so consult your manual if you plan to purchase one.  You can pair digital car maintenance devices with smartphones (most of the time) to receive detailed information about your car’s health. This information isn’t for beginners, so it’s recommended you have a bit of knowledge about how to diagnose problems in a vehicle and how to fix basic issues before investing in these.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
