Expressway collisions tend to be more serious than those on other types of roads because?
A combination of speed and volume of traffic plus tight on and off ramps on many expressways
Common Causes of Head-On Collisions Speeding, especially around a curve.Distracted driving (i.e.texting, reading, grooming, eating, cell phone, etc.) Incorrectly passing on a two-lane road.Traveling the wrong way.
Some road surfaces are more slippery than others when wet, but many of the same actions will help you drive in all types of wet roads.It is important to drive slowly, and to make sure there is enough space between you and the car ahead of you.
yes cement road surfaces are more slippery when wet then asfaultyes the worst would be if it is covered by a film of liquid sufficient enough to reduce the coefficient ecstatic friction between the tyre and the road to essentially zero, but not so deep as to introduce a new source of friction
SUVs have a higher center of gravity, therefore more pron to rollovers.
Not really.A large commercial airliner is approximately as much "fun" as a bus. Considerably less, if you're in a middle seat. However, the upside is that you won't be on it nearly as long to get to the same destination.If you're in first class, the seats are a lot more comfortable (approximately...
yes, there are race cars, motorcycles, normal cars, hummers etc.
because it's slippery... wet surfaces are slippery while dry is notthis is because there is less friction and it cant grip to the road as wellthere is less traction when the roads are wet as the water creates a thin layer between the surface of the road and the tire. this means that the tires can...
No. The only difference is a red dye added to off-road diesel to denote non-taxable use.
If you've burst a fuel line or the tank - then there is a risk of fire. Although never as bad as what Hollywood and TV shows would have you believe.
he any fuel gets set on fire it will blow try and switch your engine of quickly this stops fuel getting near the spark plugs
What other property is required of a car radiator other than ability to transfer heat energy and being light?
Resistance to flexing and vibration and corrosion and electrolysis.
I have replaced once about 10 years ago and it needs it again. I just want to make sure than the mechanic is not taking me for a ride. He says we might have to also replace the catalytic converter, because it has been replaced once. Help!!!!The flex pipe is an item that can fail because they do O...
There are many advantages of road transport in comparison to other means of transport.The investment required in road transport is very less compared to other modes of transport such as railways and air transport.The cost of construction, operating cost and maintaining roads is cheaper than that ...
Red is probably the most desirable color and red paint is more expensive than most.
It's proven that red cars have 3 more accidents than yellow cars every year.I have heard that one ALL my life, yellow being #2.
Yes the Ford Ranger is available in basic model styles that are available cheaper than other models of Ford Trucks such as the F-150 models. The Ranger comes in styles that offer 2wd and 4wd models as well as regular and extended beds and different size cab models. Choosing among the different op...
It depends on where you are located, for example, im From Nova Scotia Canada, and i am the main driver on all 4 of my civics.
a car itself is pretty heavy, all the weigt of it is equally divided by the four wheels. A tire of a car has carves in it to make it have more grip on the road. The cars' weigt and the grip it has on the road combined is what a car keeps from slipping on a dry roadwhen the road is wet it has less...
How is road transport relatively more important than that of rail transport explain any six reasons?
Road transport is more important than railway transport in many ways.Road transport delivers people and goods at door.Road transport generates more employment than railway transport.It is easy to have access over hilly areas whereas it is not possible with railway transport.
You might expect all cars to be the same more or less Some cars are better than others A handful of cars can be said to be the only ones worth buying?
You make a statement but you do not have a question so therefore I can provide no answer.
Yes there are Hybrids and 100% electric vehicles such as the Tesla, Ford Focus Electric, Nissan Leaf, and others.
It's less protected, unpainted, and more exposed.One word, condensation. But the original equipment exhaust systems are lasting longer these days because they are using better metal.
4 or 5 way stops, with long lines of waiting traffic, can be replaced with roundabouts giving increased traffic flow .
Individuals may not drive with more than one non-family passenger under age 21 between 6 p.m.and 5 a.m.A supervising adult must be a parent, guardian, or be at least 21 years old and have a valid license.Drivers must hold the intermediate license for at least 12 months.
Cars being driven on icy roads can have better traction if they have chains on their tires because chains increase the between the tires and the road?
Chains increase the surface area which increases the friction so you gain traction.
NO, IT DEPENDS ON THE SPEED AND TYPE OF VEHICLES INVOLVED IN THE ACCIDENT, AND WEATHER OR NOT PEOPLE ARE WEARING SEAT BELTS
A person in a head-on car collision who is not wearing a seat belt continues to move forward at the original speed of the car because of?
Inertia=An object in motion tends to stay in motion until it is acted upon by an outside force
If you absolutely must, at least ensure that if the roof rack breaks nothing is going to fall off and on to the road in front of other cars where it could cause a serious accident.
A rear end collision will cause your head to press against the headrest. You might also be pressed forward during this type of collision, but the first movement is against the headrest.
What different types of fuel are there that people use today?Well, besides electricity and solar power you have Hydrogen, Diesel, Gasoline(Premium, Unleaded), the ridiculous Vegetable Oil fuel I saw on a TV show once, soon Algae(saw on a commercial).That's all I can come up with.
Four wheel drives or suvs are said to cause more road wear threaten the safety of other road users including pedestrians and cyclists they also are uneconomic to run in terms of petrol usage ironicall?
ROAD WEAR.we pay for the upkeep of our roads (UK) through our road tax as all 4x4 ownwers are eligable for road tax then we do pay our way.PEDESTRIANS.have free use of the paths, pavements, bridges and underpasses so use them, crossing roads should be done at an appropriate crossing .CYCLISTSare ...
Older cars are heavier than new cars and often survive wrecks because of their bulk. However newer cars have more safety technology to protect them.
Is a 40 offset of a car rim bigger or smaller than a 38 off set which will sit in more than the other 40 or 38?
Depends if it is a negative or positive offset.Rear spacing (or backspacing) is the distance between the wheel's inboard edge and its mounting pad. It can be measured by using a ruler and a straightedge set across the backside rim of the wheel.If you have a "positive" offset, the mounting pad is ...
In this state you can be charged more that the original estimate to get a car fixed. The repair contracts have a Fifty dollar limit over the estimate. If the mechanic finds something else broken, he can fix it as long as it does not cost more than fifty dollars.
You wont go to prison first of all anything under a year is county jail. and usually on jail time after your third DUI. you will pay about 3000 in fines in California.
Maybe, maybe not, unless it's been stolen. If you don't know who owns it you can report it to the police. They remove "abandoned vehicles." The rules vary by city. In Seattle or San Diego, for example, no vehicle may be parked continuously at one location on any public roadway for more than 72 ho...
As an EMT, I work on the ambulance a lot and I've seen many ways people try to get out of the way of an ambulance. On ANY road, when an emergency vehicle is coming, SLOW DOWN, or STOP and pull to the RIGHT. That is the correct way to yield right of way to an ambulance. This will help ambulance cr...
Four by four pick ups are generally more expensive but it really depends on the made and model of the vehical. Generally trucks that have more parts and features cost more.
Their racing history/name, they are like Porsche, way over priced for what you get.
Cars today are designed to have crumple zones that absorb most of the energy from impacts so that the occupants of the vehicle don't directly absorb all of that energy.Bumper car bumpers have a bouncy rubber layer, but it is stuck onto a solid piece of steel that is not designed to crumple and ab...
No. Vehicle can be resold, you still take the hit on your credit.
As of November 2012 there are over 2,400 gas stations that offer e85 fuel throughout the country. In some places it was recorded to be over 30% less expensive than regular gasoline, although in other places it was only slightly less costly.

When you park alongside a curb on a level street, the front and back wheels must be parallel and within 18 inches of the curb.Park parallel to the street if there is no curb.
If the cost to have your car repaired is more than the value of the car can you force the other party to have it repaired instead of giving you the book value of the car?
NO, You are only legally entitled to fair morket value for your loss. It would be unreasonable, unethical and unfair to expect the other party to pay more.
Some states have a law that you have to be 10 years old
An incomplete list ordered roughly in order of introduction:
In California, 4 wheeled vehicles require a minimum liability of 15/30/5. Vehicles with 5 or more wheels are probably not street legal here unless in use by the military and they self insure.
The minimum insurance you can have is where if you crash into someone that you have insurance that will cover the other persons vehicles damage. So that way who ever is in fault has their insurance pay for damage and cost goes up for them for their insurance. So that way driver messes up his car ...
Automotive liability insurance is required an almost all states, this insurance will cover damage your car does to other cars and people, if you are at fault in a collision. Full coverage insurance covers damage to your car if you are at fault, as well as provide liability insurance.
At least liability. If you're still making payments, or someone holds a lien on that vehicle, then you're required to have full coverage.

Does a Doctor earn more salary than a Car Sprayer and a Car Engieneer.. Both of the Car salaries are not to be put together. Thanks.?
HiIf you are thinking of opening a shop customising cars or a car spraying centre, a busy shop can be a good money maker. Like any business it will have its good years and its bad. But on the other side there are not so many ethic problem with cars.I hope this helps.
When turning left across two lanes of traffic and you have to wait in the middle can more than one car be in the middle?
No, but technically you can't wait in the middle at all for safety reasons. You would have to wait at the lane you are coming from behind the line when traffic is too heavy to cross and turn until it is clear; furthermore, if you were to wait in the middle and the light turns red, it would be con...
In order for a vehicle to be considered modified all that an individual would need to do is change the factory condition the car is sold in. Some modifications may include audio, body, and electrical changes.
Maintain proper air pressure in tires.
When One valve tip on a cylinder head is much higher than the others. the most likely cause of this?
When an engine severely overheats a valve or valves can "tulip". This condition can cause the valve to seat lower in the valve seat causing the valve to appear higher than normal. Time for the head to be rebuilt.
Not at first. If you look at historical film footage you will see the early cars sliding around on the roads at that time. And Ford offered skis and tracks for their model T cars for winter driving. But clearly roads continued to develop, culminating in the introduction of the interstate highway ...
It depends on the mass of the 2 vehicles, and the distance traveled after the impact which is determined by velocity and momentum as well as mass and terrain.. you question needs more specifics to give a better answer
4300 Kelvins is what most OEMs use, anything lower is goiung to look more yellow ( fog light applications), anything higher is blueish white ----blue----dark blue-----purple ( for personal preference)
you must be 16 to drive on the road with or without G licence.
it could take less then half an inch of water on the road to cause you to hydroplan
Can you interchange carburetor from other vehciles on a 1978 d 100 power wagon from another type of truck?
yeah but you might need an adapter plate
Head-on collisions create the greatest force of impact of any type of collision because of the speed created by the two vehicles coming together.Actions to prevent a head on collision: Slow down.If an impact is imminent, reduce your speed to reduce the force of impact.
If lanes are not marked, you cannot be pulled over for a lane violation. However, you can always be pulled over for reckless driving, which is at the discretion of the officer.
Defensive Driving Tip #12: Look Down the Road! This means keep your eyes UP and looking down the road.Many drivers focus on the road only 5 or 8 seconds ahead.Defensive Driving means you should be looking about 15-20 seconds ahead of your vehicle, farther if you can.
Does hydroplaning occur more often in the first few minutes of rainfall due to rain mixing with road oil?
No this is not Hydroplaning, which happens when there is a layer of water on the road that the tires cannot push out of the way fast enough.Skidding after fresh rain is rather a loss of friction between the road's surface and your tires (due to the road oil). After a few minutes of heavy rain all...
A white, frothy substance appears in the oil, or on the dipstick. This is water, which has leaked through the headgasket from a water channel into an oil channel. When the reverse happens, the coolant becomes very oily. Coolant can also leak into a cylinder, causing clouds of steam to come out th...
One of the biggest things that causes cars to be drifting in and out of lanes would be weather. Rain can cause tires to lock up or turn in an odd fashion so it will drift you off-road. Drivers who are driving for a long time may also start to become dreary eyed.
your line-of-sight is greater than 30 seconds ahead
If we take out of the equation the convenience, reliability (sometimes), better fuel economy, safety, new car pride then really the answer is never. So lets say you have 84 Toyota Corolla, its worth about $800. It needs new brakes ($300), it needs a new water pump ($200), the heater fan doesn't w...
The year, make and model vehicle would help otherwise, the lever should stay where ever you shift it to.
You may have a problem with the car's suspension system such as a need to replace the shocks . If the driver is over weight the vehicle will lean to the left.
Speed. It's nice to be able to drive the wheel faster than the rpm's your legs can produce on the front gears.
What if your vision is certainly your most important tool for driving. Of your remaining senses which one do you consider vital to driving What makes it more valuable than the other senses?
After sight - hearing is the most important. You wouldn't be a safe driver if you couldn't hear what's happening around you (car horns, emergency sirens etc).
The most common paint that can be used on a brake caliper is usually normal type's of spray paint, these can be purchased in most big name decor stores.
How hot is it? You can't be changing it every 8 hours to match the weather. Put in some artificial oil if you have no oil leaks and go back to sleep.
ViscosityConsistently below 15 degrees C (60 degrees F) SAE 10W30Consistently above 5 degrees C (40 degrees F) SAE 20W40The above is correct BUT DO USE GOOD motorcycle oil. I unfortunately got some from a superstore and it screwed up my starter clutch. I changed the oil and filter, and now it is ...
There are alot of parts that would be worthwile to sell from a salvage truck there is the engine if it is in good working order. You could also sell the truck for extra pieces to a salvage yard like the bed of the truck, doors etc.
Raise the hood to indicate trouble, and wait in your car for help.And your welcome :)
Why would persuading car users to stop using their cars as much would be more useful than stopping train or bus users?
Cars compared to public transport(bus or train) move less amount of people using more fuel and producing more carbon footprint.
When you stop for a school bus, you cannot drive again until the red lights stop flashing or when the bus driver or a traffic officer signals the you can proceed.This law applies on all roadways in New York State.You must stop for a school bus even if it is on the opposite side of a divided highway.
