Which windshield chip repair?
My windshield got chipped today by a rock kicked up by a truck. It's a combination star and chip, less than 2" in total diameter at this point. Due to the location, it seems unlikely that a reputable shop will attempt to repair it and I'd rather not spend $300 on a new windshield just at the moment. Advice is welcome. [more inside]

Parking markings in UK
Calling British readers pls - A highly specific question - about where parking is allowed on roads in the UK. Please see the photo here. That solid white line is approx 3 feet from the sidewalk. No signs (good or bad) anywhere in sight. No indication it might be a cycle lane or other special use. Can cars park on this road?

Travelling from Oslo to Paris--what shouldn't we miss?
Mrs. Hanoixan and I will be taking a trip from Oslo to Paris over a couple of weeks in August. We're already planning on seeing the Sognefjord, and tooling around the French countryside. There's a ton in the middle. What route would you suggest (we'll be taking trains where we can)? We like the road less travelled and beautiful places.

Easy way to get home from Cleveland, OH Megabus station?
My friend will be arriving at the Megabus station early in the morning (3 or 4 AM, maybe even later). The bus is running very late. I had promised to pick her up at 12AM, and will go to pick her up at 4 or whatever time if there is no other option. BUT I would love to find an alternative for her so I don't conk out early on the 4th. I'd like to know if there are any reputable taxi companies, etc. that she can call when she is close to arriving at the station.

NE to Outer Banks driving questions
Going to Nag's Head for a little family R&R. I haven't driven down there in 8 years and looking for some advice. Leaving from SE Mass area at 10PM on Friday and hope to get in around noon on Saturday. Taking 95 south through CT, 1st decision: GW or Tappan Zee? We will be hitting them around 1AM. After that the question is: I95 all the way around DC, or Rt 13 South through DE & MD? Has anyone made the trip lately or know of any major construction projects going on that would cause big delays? Normally I go the Rt13 but is there a problem with one of the bridges in DE? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
