But there’s one very vital detail to a car that can be very easy to miss – the license plates.

Recently, we have noticed an increase in the number of license plates reported stolen or swapped out for another.

Dear Drivers, Red Means Stop!

There’s a game most children play that should prepare them to be future drivers. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? It goes by the name Red Light Green Light. And when you take driver’s ed, I’m pretty sure one of the first things they teach you is red means stop, green means go.

I was driving past Highland Park Village a couple of weeks ago, and was sitting at the traffic light at the intersection of eastbound Mockingbird and Douglas Avenue. While at the light, I watched not one, but three, cars turn right into Highland Park Village after their light had turned red.
