The Wimbledon Phenomena

The first determining factor when choosing a TKO is going to be your engine's power output. Keep in mind that transmissions are rated for torque, not horsepower. The peak horsepower number doesn't really matter much, it is torque that breaks things! The TKO500 is rated for 500 lb.-ft. of torque, and the TKO600 is rated at 600 lb.-ft. Even though both TKOs will stand up to considerably more torque than they are rated for, you still need to keep the torque capacity rating in mind.

The impact of seeing the world's best tennis players on home soil served to remind people that tennis is a great sport and that facilities all over the country were just waiting to be used. Thousands of usually empty or infrequently used tennis courts in every town and city suddenly became very popular. Children, who may have wondered what that rectangle of tarmac in the corner of the park was for, were now asking their parents to dig out their old tennis rackets and a take them down for a game. Expecting to find the courts deserted as usual, they would almost certainly have been treated to the surprise of seeing the courts all busy and groups of others waiting their turn. Dust covered booking systems would be opened up and names would be listed for later in the days and weeks to come. Tennis clubs and tennis teaching academies would start to receive a flood of new enquiries, at least until the end of the summer when the annual phenomena starts to fade away again.

When your teenager starts driving there are so many things to think about- from added responsibility and independence to worries about distracted driving to the financial burden of another vehicle. The last thing parents with new teenage drivers should have to worry about is cheap car insurance.

The driver training or good student discounts could lower the $374 premium by another 5-10 percent depending upon your needs and individual company policy. As a single guy under age 21, you can approximate your potential savings merely by reducing your present rate by 50 percent and then allowing for operator training or good student discounts where appropriate.

SUVs also have an unfortunate tendency to roll over during accidents. SUVs are more likely to roll over because they are far heavier than normal care and ride higher, on average, 8 inches higher than passenger cars. This has likely led to higher levels of fatal accidents in SUV crashes than passenger car crashes. A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that rollovers accounted for 37 per cent of all fatal SUV crashes, as compared to only 15 per cent for passenger cars.

This like all generalizations is somewhat arbitrary, but it does reflect the reality of how insurance companies categorize people in order to assess risk. If people in this category buy insurance online, they will inevitably be deemed a high risk, and charged a higher rate accordingly. Insurance companies tend to assume that younger people are drivers who are a higher risk because they obviously don't have the experience that comes with age, and are also sometimes considered more carefree or in insurance thinking, more irresponsible than their older colleagues.
