Why Spring Allergies Isn’t Just Bad for You, But Also Your Car

Why Spring Allergies Isn’t Just Bad for You, But Also Your Car

Pollen allergies are becoming more common and severe. Over the years, their prevalence and severity have increased noticeably. But what's causing this issue to grow? Where Does All The Pollen Come From Male trees produce pollen, while female trees produce seeds. In 1949, the USDA issued city planting guidelines that favored planting exclusively male trees to avoid the hassle of dealing with the fruit from female trees. This decision inadvertently contributed to a rise in pollen levels, which are projected to double by 2040.  Today, allergies impact a significant portion of the population, with over 30% of adults and 40% of children in the United States affected. To address this issue, there's a growing mission to prioritize the planting of female trees in areas where children frequent the most, such as schools, parks, and playgrounds. The Impact of Climate Change Climate change plays a significant role in exacerbating pollen allergies ... read more

Have you ever found yourself pressing down on the brake pedal, only to feel a slight delay before your car comes to a stop? It's a common concern among drivers and one that can be both frustrating and potentially dangerous. Causes of Delayed or Slow Braking Worn Brake Pads Delving into the depths of delayed braking, one of the chief instigators often found lurking beneath the surface is the gradual wear and tear of brake pads. The friction material on your brake pads gradually wears away, eroding their capacity to grip the rotors with the same vigor as before. Consequently, this erosion translates into an increased stopping distance and a discernible lag in brake response. Brake Fluid Contamination Amidst the intricacies of your car's braking system lies a potential saboteur: contaminated brake fluid. Over time, this vital fluid can fall victim to the infiltration of moisture and debris, compromising its inherent ability to facilitate the seamless transfer ... read more
