Life hacks are all the rage these days. Unfortunately, most of the tricks found across the web aren't actually very helpful. While using dental floss to cut a birthday cake might be a decent party trick in a pinch, it's probably not something that comes up very often.

We've decided to put together a video series of life hacks that people can actually use. Introducing Autoblog's Car Hacks, where we show you how to solve common car problems in uncommon ways.

This week we hope to keep you a little safer on the roads at night. Whether you've just finished parallel parking or are facing car trouble on the side of the road, you'll want it to be clear to approaching traffic that your door is open and you'll be exiting. With this reflective tape hack, you can add a little extra visibility to yourself and your car on dark streets and highways.

Keep in mind, Car Hacks aren't intended to be a replacement for industry best practices or professional maintenance techniques. If you're into hardcore detailing, check out our Autoblog Details series.
