While we all dislike traffic on normal commutes; any disruption like a holiday or a big tent sale just serve to compound the ...

Portable Seatbelts For Children

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Oct 27th, 2006 9:39pm

by Breanne Boyle I love telling anecdotes in my Ask Patty posts. I hope you don’t mind reading about the randomness of my life and how it relates to automotive post fodder. So let me get into it again. I remember taking the bus to school every day from about age 7 to age 13. By the time I was 13 it was a bit degrading, but heck, it gave me time to read.
