Automobiles are wheeled motor vehicles that move on the ground and carry a single or more occupants. These vehicles are primarily used for transportation. Most definitions include four wheels, seats one to eight people, and drive on the road. They are also designed to be environmentally friendly, reduce pollution, and minimize accidents.
Vehicles that move on the ground under its own stored power
Vehicles that move on the ground under their own stored power are known as “automobiles”. A car is one type of ground-moving vehicle. They’re designed to transport a driver and a small number of passengers, but can also carry other loads.
Vehicles that are designed to reduce pollution
Pollution from motor vehicles can have a negative effect on human health. Many vehicles produce harmful byproducts such as benzene, formaldehyde, and hydrocarbons. These gases are also associated with global warming. Driving the cleanest vehicle possible and limiting your driving time can help to reduce pollution.
Newer vehicles emit less pollution and use less gas than older ones. The stringency of emission standards has gotten stricter, but older vehicles continue to contribute to the smog problem. This is because emissions control technology tends to degrade with age and mileage.
Vehicles that are designed to reduce accidents
There are a variety of technologies available on vehicles today, all of which are designed to reduce accidents. Blind-spot detection systems, for example, sound an audible warning and illuminate your side-view mirrors to alert you to vehicles in your blind spot. Automatic braking systems also help reduce your risk of crashing into another vehicle.
These technologies have been developed by automakers to reduce accidents. Some, such as forward-collision-warning systems, are already in cars and have been proven to reduce accidents by up to 15%. Others, like lane-departure warning systems, can detect when your vehicle veers out of its lane and trigger a warning to help you correct your course.
