  • Technology is changing every industry. The same stands true for the automobile industry. The use of technology in our automobiles is increasing day by day. There are more and more technologically advanced systems present in our cars these days. The technologically advanced systems are making our automobiles much safer. The accidents, as well as other problems in our automobiles, are decreasing at a rapid pace. We will today highlight how technology is reducing car accidents. We will first study the feasibility of speed cameras in reducing road accidents. Speed cameras have a different direct purpose. They monitor the speeding vehicles to find the vehicle owners who are above the speed limit. There is however a side benefit of this technology. Most of the vehicle owners want to avoid fines about over speeding. Hence, drivers usually stick to the speed limit. When they stick to the speed limit, the probability of accident reduces significantly. Moreover, most of the drivers are not able to drive at a consistent speed. That is why; they are a bit below the speed threshold. As a result, they are more careful to not over speed. Thus, the chances of a car accident happening are on the lower side. Due to this reason, speed cameras result in a reduction of serious road accidents. They indirectly force the vehicle owners to drive more carefully and below the speed threshold.

  • Driving an old car is nothing short of a roller coaster ride. You never know what’s coming up next. One moment you are driving smoothly at 100 miles an hour, and when you are certain that nothing can go wrong at this point, you notice a dashboard light flashing at you. That’s when the panic hits hard, especially when the help is seemingly nowhere to find. Thankfully, when my car stalled somewhere in the suburbs, I had a local mobile car mechanic of Sydney to come over and fixed the problem until the next time.I would often use my older car to run local errands because I could never trust it. Every time I take it out for a spin, I knew I would have to visit the mechanic on my way back home for one reason or the other. If it was so problematic, why didn’t I get rid of it sooner than later? I wish I could but that was my first car. I would give up my monthly savings to resurrect that dead piece of engineering only to find myself in a similar situation over and over again. Nonetheless, I sold that car a few months ago but I still get to keep the knowledge and incredible lessons it taught me. So, here’s my 2 cents for the used car owners to make their experience less painful, unlike mine. Overlooking the battery It was one of the biggest mistakes for which I paid the price and suffered emotional trauma several times. I have an understanding that one thing that powers your car is the battery and not the engine. So, if you are driving an older car, make sure its battery is never more than 4 years old. Also, you must be mindful of the fact that...

  • You all may have seen those small aligned black dots on your car windshield. But you may not know what is their actual purpose. Why are they embed there? Should we scrap and remove it all? Here is the answer to all these questions. These black dots are called as black bands or Frit. According to the major Japanese glass manufacture, Nippon Sheet Glass Co., a huge player in the auto industry, the black band around the edge of the glass is called “frit,” a baked-in ceramic paint that’s essentially impossible to scrape off. That frit band along the edge of the glass, he told me, serves three main purposes. Most importantly, it acts to prevents ultraviolet sun rays from deteriorating the urethane sealant. That matters, because the sealant doesn’t just keep rain out of the car, it actually holds the glass in place. The last thing you want is the sun to cook your adhesive, and send your window flying out the next time you hit a speed bump. The frit band also acts to provide a rougher surface for that adhesive to stick to, and it’s a visual barrier, preventing people from seeing that nasty glue from outside. Auto manufacturers used to use gaskets to keep windows sealed from the elements, and over top of that gasket, they’d fasten chrome trim to prevent the windshield from rattling out. In the ‘50s and ‘60s, as auto manufacturers began transitioning from metal trim to adhesives to hold the glass in place, a way of protecting the glue and ensuring good adhesion became necessary, and eventually, the frit band became standard on essentially all automotive windshields. The Dots The “dot-matrix” you see on windows is a halftone pattern, serving an aesthetic purpose. The pattern simulates a smooth gradient by gradually decreasing...
