Cruise control is really useful when it comes to long drives on roads that are not that crowded, this way usually payoffs in a couple ways: to make it easier on you without having to hold the gas pedal on the whole trip and it will help you on your gas mileage, seeing that you won’t be accelerating at different levels. Some drivers use it to avoid unconsciously violating speed limits. A driver who otherwise tends to unconsciously increase speed over the course of a highway journey may avoid a speeding ticket. However, cruise control may go over its setting on a downhill which is steep enough to accelerate the engine. A remote keyless system is a system designed to remotely permit or deny access to your vehicle.
What are the safety concerns about seat belts/ air bags/ brakes? I have included the fundamentals of a car that would be created in the time of 2009-2010, and compare with past car designs probably from the year 1996 to 2005. I have compared traffic rules from other countries with Bangladesh, which also may be the cause of car crashes but it does not hold relevance to the safety issues that I have mentioned but it is included for further knowledge. Many mechanics and engineers have stated that safety measures in certain new models of the cars are 100% effective. This is something we can debate over but I have also included the thoughts of people towards that statement, whether they agree with it or not.
Essay 1. Whether cars should be banned in all town centres is a complicated issue, and one which many people have strong feelings about. There are some reasons why cars should be banned. Firstly, it would reduce pollution greatly, which is especially important since town centres always consist of tall buildings and narrow spaces which often hold the pollution in one spot. Secondly, with less traffic there would be fewer accidents, and hence society would save money because of reduced medical expenses.
Function: The function of these inflatable seatbelts is to add additional protection. The seatbelts are designed to reduce head, neck and chest injuries for rear seat occupants typically children and the elderly by rapidly expanding in the event of a crash. Aesthetics: The aesthetics of this seat belt look slightly different to the ordinary seatbelt they are somewhat thicker and rounder but have been tested on their comfort and results show that 90% of people say they are equally comfortable as ordinary seatbelt or even more comfortable. They are more comfortable as they are softer against the body and lie flat, rather than against the skin causing irritation. The researchers believe that this advantage will hopefully boost the rate of usage of the seatbelts as studies show that only 60% of rear passengers actually wear their seatbelts.
There are many ways to modify the current cars in production to a more safe and inexpensive manner. For example, we can add steel front/rear bumpers like they had in the 50’s. Those bumpers were proven safer than the ones on most cars today. We can also lower the price of gasoline to a regular and average price, so the middle and lower class can afford it. I also think the technology exists to boost up the miles per gallon (mpg) a car can have.
Switching to alternative sources such as electric cars can help pull this number down significantly. Electric cars are more affordable as Electricity is cheaper than gas, and can come from renewable resources such as solar and wind power. Electric cars pollute less than gas-powered cars, which makes them better for our environment. Electric cars are much more reliable and require less maintenance than gas-powered cars. By using domestically generated electricity rather than relying on foreign oil, we can achieve energy independence and will no longer need to engage in costly wars in the Middle East to secure an energy supply.
Why wear a seat belt when driving because, if worn properly, they prevent you from being thrown around or out of your car if you’re in a car crash. When you wear a seat belt it is more likely for somebody to live in a car crash then someone who doesn’t wear a seat in a car crash. Why avoid texting and driving at the same time? When you text and drive at the same time you’re more anxious to check your message then keep your eyes on the road. Also when you’re more likely to lose focus on what you should be doing like driving?
Whereas the disadvantages; Hybrids have less bracing and support in the suspension and body. They use lighter duty components than in cars that are more performance focused. It has definitely proved its purpose, as the target audience of young environmentalists, would be more considerate in purchasing hybrid cars. Hybrid cars are conveyed as the cars of the future and suit the needs of young adults. This is considering the fact that they won’t have to fill and pay petrol all the time like other cars.
A smart road is a road that has an IT system that communicates with the IT system that is found in smart cars. The smart road communicates potential dangers to the smart car such as the recommended speed, if there are any obstacles in the way, the amount of traffic, etc. C. What are the foreseen benefits of smart cars and smart roads? Major safety increase for automobiles because the smart cars and roads would give information that would greatly reduces the chances of accidents. The major reason for accidents is speeding and smart cars would warn the drivers when they are going too fast and tell them to break.
In a small town, you don’t have to worry about getting robbed. There is also a problem with pollution. Exhaust fumes from cars, trucks, and buses create health problems for people living in a big city. In a big city, there are higher rates of asthma and other respiratory problems. In a small town, the air is much cleaner and there are more wide open space so that pollution doesn’t build up.
