Ten Things We Learned This Week
Dogs driving cars, 100mph hot tubs and Stig's pasta fetish: it's another weird week in cars

1) Georgian dogs are now driving their owners (allegedly)
When officers in Oconee County, Georgia, this week responded to a call about a dog locked in a hot car, they received an entirely plausible explanation from its owner upon arrival at the scene.
With the temperature in the car passing 50*C, 60-year-old Mark Terrell calmly informed the cops that yes, of course the dog was still in the car… because the dog had driven him to the store. To buy some corn. Because, hey, who doesn’t need corn?
Sheriff Sgt Partain reported that Terrell appeared to be highly intoxicated. Terrell was arrested and charged with offences of animal cruelty and driving under the influence.
The dog has reportedly been offered a drive with Caterham F1.
