When thinking about self-driving cars people tend to think they can drive perfectly and smoothly at all times. However, that statement is not true. In document B, Jamie writes, “In fact, heavy rain can do serious damage to the laser sensor mounted on the car’s roof, calling to question what role the driver might have to play in the event the technology fails.” To elaborate, many types of weather could result in a failure of the piece of technology. Image a young man late for his interview and rushes inside of his self-driving vehicle. The man, however, does not know it will rain and once it does his car will most likely crash into another due to the sensors failing.
Injured maybe, but alive. Having to wear a seat belt should be made a primary law. Many people do not wear seat belts. Especially if they are driving in a residential area, or are not driving very far. They think that because they are not driving far or because they are not driving fast, that it’s fine if they do not wear a seat belt.
From firsthand experience, I can voice that wearing a seat belt will save a driver or passenger’s life in a vulnerable moment. Why wouldn’t drivers or passengers want to wear something that could save their lives? Why wouldn’t drivers or passengers want to wear something that would save their family and loved one’s from heartache? Why wouldn’t drivers or passengers want to wear something that was quick to put on and specifically made to keep them safe? Not wearing a seat belt should be illegal in all 50 states because it is not a healthy habit to attain, it can easily be prevented, and it puts safety at risk.
It was him who thought of the idea that passengers may be safer in a car that was designed to absorb the energy from a crash and keep this energy away from people in the safety cell. (Figure 1) ("How Was the Crumple Zone Developed?") Physics When a car crashes, the aim of the crumple zone structure is to crush gradually, that way much of the impact energy is absorbed and kept away from the passengers; this is termed as a “controlled crush.” The idea of a crumple zone is to increase the amount of time it takes for the force to act on the car during a crash. This way the force can act over a longer period of time, reducing the impact when it gets to the area where the passengers are seated. ("Physics in the Crumple
Are crumple zones effective? In a typical crash scenario, the crumple zone effectively redistributes the force of impact on the vehicle, leaving the ‘safety cell’ intact whilst the front or rear of the vehicle is completely deformed. This means that the crumple zone is working correctly. However, crumple zones are designed to work in tandem with the additional safety features of a modern vehicle, such as the airbags, seatbelt and collapsible steering column. It is when all these features work to reduce the impact on the driver that injury is most commonly avoided.
In my opinion texting while driving is not only against the law but it sets a bad example for others. Every day drivers who choose to text risk their own life as well as yours. These are car accidents that don't have to happen. In 2011 23% of auto collisions involved cell phones, that's 1.3 million crashes. These can be easily prevented by turning off the phone while in the car.
Wearing a helmet and eyewear on an ATV All-Terrain Vehicles are less stable and less visible on the road, and lack the protection of the rider. The government says the number of deaths on ATVs was over 26 times the number in cars. Helmets are about 37% effective in preventing ATV deaths, and about 67% effective in preventing brain injuries. Helmets should be worn at all times while on an ATV, no matter where a rider is at. Due to being safe and cautious, it should be a law in every state to wear a helmet and protective eyewear while on an ATV.
The most obvious thing they have done is to make the car beep until you put on your seat belt. In some cars the beeping stops after a certain time, so if you can handle the beeping you still won’t wear your seat belt. If you don’t want to hear the beeping you still can get around it by buckling the seat belt behind you. Newer models in Ford and GMC have created similar programs that mute the radio until the front seat, meaning driver and passenger, are buckled. I think these programs would be very successful because I have to have the radio on when I drive but I also think there is a way to get around it which would be to play music off your phone while you
Although implementing stricter driving laws may seem a better option, it doesn’t always have superior outcomes to its countering opinion. The driving age should stay the same because its preemptive strike to driver fatalities and its protection of basic individual driving experience. For starters, keeping the driver age the same takes a preemptive strike against driver fatalities. The people who want to change driving laws only see this option as a way to reduce car crash rates. They actually do, for 16 year olds.
It also offers a barrier that seals the edges tight and keeps water and debris from entering into the cab.

There are several reasons your car can overheat starting with your car 's coolant system. The most obvious and cheapest is the radiator cap isn 't on tight. If the cap is loose or off completely the radiator system won 't build up enough pressure to work correctly and your car will over heat. Wait until the car engine has cooled down and tighten the cap. Never attempt to mess with your car 's radiator system while the engine is hot, the coolant can spray you and cause severe burns when this cap is removed from a hot engine.
They can take a beating from hail and are heavy enough that they won’t blow off the car. Park Under a Tree Do this if you have to, but use common sense. Don’t park under the largest limb, and don’t stay in your car. A bushy tree can provide some protection against small hailstones, but don’t stay under a tree when there is lightning and high winds. While these makeshift methods won’t save your car from baseball-sized hail or hurricane-force winds, they might still protect your windshield from typical hail damage.
If you change lanes too quickly, you’ll find yourself needing to adjust as the fifth wheel starts to fish tail on the road. You will also need to give yourself more room to stop. There are electric brakes on the trailer, but they are not as effective as the brakes on your car when driving alone. Don’t Drive With Distractions Because of the additional weight, reaction time will be much more limited. Even having an additional second to react to other drivers on the road is crucial, so make a greater effort to avoid using your phone, adjusting your radio, or reading a map while the vehicle is in motion.
As a new driver, it is your responsibility to keep your vehicle in good condition. You also have to follow a few safety laws in regards to your vehicle’s upkeep. Most states have laws on the books that make it illegal for you to drive around with a damaged windshield. A damaged windshield can impair your view of the road and put you and other drivers at risk. Listed below are the four most common types of damage that a windshield can sustain and the corresponding type of glass repair that will fix that damage: Chip Windshield Repair One of the most common types of windshield repair is chip repair.
