Regarding the smell of a car interior, my future father-in-law has bought a used (approx. 2 years old) vehicle with some driven kilometres. I was really suprised when I sat in since it smelt as a pure new car as well.

Maybe every car we drive has its own smell, but as we use it daily, the smell becomes ordinary to our nose. Perhaps, the other people who we don't usually travel with, can smell the smell (yo dawg) of our cars and furhermore it may smell as a novelty to them. Who knows?

I don't think so. When I travel in other people's cars, I never smell the new car smell... unless it's new, of course

100% fake, he would have been arrested for joking in that way, he should have better paid the fine. And, if it was real, the cop would have been more angry at the end, after he discovered he was mocked!

Depends on the cop. German cops don't have a sense of humour, Ukraine I don't know.

Why would you be arrested for joking? I don't think it's prohibited for Russians to speak English in Ukraine. And I doubt Ukrainian cops would play in a joke video like that.

I suppose it depends on particular policeman and on his/her mood possibly.

A friend of mine has been caught by a police to check the car mandatory equipment (especially reflective jacket). In Slovakia, you are obliged to have the reflective jacket at hand, so that you can get out of the car with the jacket on in case of any accident. The friend had the jacket in the trunk since according to him, it was waste of place to have it at hand. As the police asked him to show the reflective jacket, he just crawled to backseat, opened the trunk from there, took the jacket, crawled back to frontseat, put the jacket on, got out of car and asked police "problem?" The policemen just LOLed and let him go.

But I have also personally experienced a policeman who took everything too seriously. I just passed over the traffic light through red light (actually it was amber, but police does not care) and if I tried to relieve it, he got angry and almost seized my driving licence. I better have paid.

"holy shit" LOL.

Bears are actually great tree climbers. You can't hide from a bear climbing in a tree.

To manual transmission drivers. Do you often brake your car by shifting down or brake only by using brakes?

I also break shifting down. If I'm going downhill then I will use the engine brake at full capacity.

You drive an automatic?
