Top 10 Vehicle Safety Devices


If you are purchasing a new vehicle, make sure that it has as many of these safety devices as possible, to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. It may cost a little bit extra, but it is definitely worth it if these things are going to save lives.

There are many other new safety devices that are helping to keep people safe while they are on the roads.

Sometimes, we wonder if technology is hurting more than helping us, and in some cases, it may be. One way that today's technology is really helping us is by providing us with many more devices in our vehicles to keep us safe. Throughout the history of motor vehicles, there have been some significant changes. For instance, in the beginning, vehicles didn't even have seatbelts or windshield wipers. We have come a long way since Henry Ford first started rolling cars off the assembly line. Today's automobiles have all kinds of wonderful features designed to keep you and your loved ones safe.


Here are 10 of the top vehicle safety devices you need to be aware of, especially when purchasing a 
 new vehicle:

Top 10 Vehicle Safety Devices

[1] Airbags

Some people think that these are actually dangerous, but they have in fact saved many, many lives. There are two main types of air bags, dual stage airbags and side airbags. If needed, the dual stage airbags will go off at different times, one in a minor accident and both in a more serious crash. Side airbags help to prevent drivers and passengers from getting head injuries. Small children should be in their car seats, in the back seat of your vehicle, where there are no airbags that can actually injure them rather than save their lives.

[2] On/Off Switches


Many vehicles are equipped with on/off switches for airbags. This is for the times when children are going to be sitting near them. There have been many instances of airbags injuring children, and you can eliminate this risk by using the switch. There have been many incidents of injuries and even death in small children because of airbags, and this switch will eliminate that problem.


[3] Passenger Sensing System

This has been created to reduce injuries or death to smaller children. This is an advanced airbag system that can tell the size of the person in the seat, with sensors that get information about the front-seat passenger's weight and the pressure on the seat. This information tells the airbags whether or not to go off in the event of a frontal crash.


[4] Energy-Absorbing Steering System


This is designed so that it will compress upon impact, lessening the risk of rib injuries to drivers. This has been proven to work in many instances, and it has reduced the risk of driver fatalities by 12%, and serious injuries and death risks have been reduced by 38%. When there is a crash, drivers are often thrown forward, and the steering wheel can cause serious injuries, making this feature one that you should look for in your next vehicle.


[5] Back Up Sensing System

This is a wonderful little invention that makes it so that when you are backing up, you will be warned if you get too close to another vehicle or other object. This is now an option on a number of larger vehicles, such as RV's and SUV's, and it has greatly reduced the number of collisions caused by backing up, and a lot of bicycles in driveways have been saved because of this feature.

[6] Electrochromatic Mirror/Auto Dimming Mirrors

One thing that can really be annoying when you are driving at night is the reflection of headlights in your mirrors. This feature will automatically darken the mirrors, which in turn reduces the glare. Today, approximately 10% of all vehicles are equipped with this feature, and many more vehicles are expected to have this technology in the near future. This not only helps to prevent accidents, it also helps people who are extremely light sensitive, and bothered by lights in their mirrors.

  

[7] Head Restraints

Two of the most common injuries that occur due to automobile accidents are head injuries and whiplash. These head restraints, which are on the top of the front seats, will help to hold the head in place, and they reduce these types of injuries. New and more advanced systems make it so the seat will move down and back in the event of a collision, so there will not be as much forward motion, which of course will lessen the risk of head and neck injuries.


[8] Heads Up Display

One should never take their eyes off the road while they are driving, but we all do. We must look down to check our speed and other things, and it can only take a split second for an accident to occur. A heads up display (HUD) will put the information you need right across your windshield, so your eyes never have to look anywhere but at the road. You will still be able to watch what you are doing, while being able to find the information you need quickly and easily.

[9] Padded Knee Bolster

Knee injuries are a common result of automobile accidents, and this device can greatly reduce the risk of this type of injury. This is another feature that can keep the driver or passengers in the proper position to lessen their chances of being injured. It will also help to keep passengers from sliding beneath the instrument panel and risking becoming trapped or injured even further.


[10] Seatbelts

These may have been around for many years, but many advancements have been made so that they will protect automobile occupants even more than the older versions. Unlike in the past, where seatbelts just went around your waist, today's vehicles are equipped with front and rear seat belts for both the lap and shoulders, and the locking system insures that those wearing the seat belts (which is the law in Canada and the US) will not be thrown forward if an accident occurs.

A vanilla icecream solved General motor's Puzzle : Engineering is Awesome

#AUTO-THUNDER
if you like this story please share it...
#Engineering is awesome..
--------------------------------^^--------------
Vanilla Ice Cream that puzzled General motors’!!!!
An Interesting Story
Never underestimate your Clients' Complaint, no matter how funny it might
seem!
This is a real story that happened between the customer of General Motors
and its Customer-Care Executive. Pls read on..... A complaint was received by the Pontiac Division of General Motors: 'This is the second time I have written to you, and I don't blame you for
not answering me, because I sounded crazy, but it is a fact that we have a
tradition in our family of Ice-Cream for dessert after dinner each night,
but the kind of ice cream varies so, every night, after we've eaten, the
whole family votes on which kind of ice cream we should have and I drive
down to the store to get it. It's also a fact that I recently purchased a
new Pontiac and since then my trips to the store have created a
problem..... You see, every time I buy a vanilla ice-cream, when I start back from the
store my car won't start. If I get any other kind of ice cream, the car
starts just fine. I want you to know I'm serious about this question, no
matter how silly it sounds "What is there about a Pontiac that makes it not
start when I get vanilla ice cream, and easy to start whenever I get any
other kind?" The Pontiac President was understandably skeptical about the
letter, but sent an Engineer to check it out anyway.
The latter was surprised to be greeted by a successful, obviously well
educated man in a fine neighborhood. He had arranged to meet the man just
after dinner time, so the two hopped into the car and drove to the ice
cream store. It was vanilla ice cream that night and, sure enough, after
they came back to the car, it wouldn't start.
The Engineer returned for three more nights. The first night, they got
chocolate. The car started. The second night, he got strawberry. The car
started. The third night he ordered vanilla. The car failed to start.
Now the engineer, being a logical man, refused to believe that this man's
car was allergic to vanilla ice cream. He arranged, therefore, to continue
his visits for as long as it took to solve the problem. And toward this end
he began to take notes: He jotted down all sorts of data.
Now the engineer, being a logical man, refused to believe that this man's car was allergic to vanilla ice cream. He arranged, therefore, to continue
his visits for as long as it took to solve the problem. And toward this end. he began to take notes: He jotted down all sorts of data: time of day, type of gas uses, time to drive back and forth etc.
In a short time, he had a clue: the man took less time to buy vanilla than any other flavor. Why? The answer was in the layout of the store. Vanilla, being the most popular flavor, was in a separate case at the front of the store for quick pickup. All the other flavors were kept in the back of the store at a different counter where it took considerably longer to check out the flavor.
Now, the question for the Engineer was why the car wouldn't start when it took less time. E..ureka Time was now the problem not the vanilla ice cream!!!! The engineer quickly came up with the answer: ”vapor lock". It was happening every night; but the extra time taken to get the other flavors allowed the engine to cool down sufficiently to start. When the man  got vanilla, the engine was still too hot for the vapor lock to dissipate.
Even crazy looking problems are sometimes real and all problems seem to be simple only when we find the solution, with cool thinking.
Don't just say it is " IMPOSSIBLE" without putting a sincere effort...
What really matters is your attitude and your perception.
Moral of the Story "Try to Fix the Bug instead of making it as a Known Issue"
