Cars have been one of the major most ways to the transportation of people since they were introduced and adopted in the last century. They help people to travel long distances without any issues. In the old times, the main transportation was animal pulled carriages which were not reliable and slow for long distances.
Influences of car transport
Transportation through cars is above another form of transportation because it is easier to a certain extent. Cars used to be beyond most people’s budget when they were introduced but now they are somewhat affordable, so many people have them.
You can travel very long distances in cars at a great speed which you couldn’t have done on the carriages as they were dependent on animals. In cars, you just have to refuel at a gas station and you are good to travel anywhere that has a road.
Drawbacks of cars
Cars although have influenced our lives a lot but they are not certainly fully safe. The most accidents that are reported throughout the world are of cars. The main reason is that cars are the most used vehicle and the roads are crowded by them so in most cases they are unavoidable but are also caused by the expertise of people as well. The following are some reasons due to which car transport is not as good as it sounds:
- Since the popularity of cars, the amount of pollution in our environment has increased considerably. Cars cause all sorts of pollution. The gases emitted from cars are harmful to the environment, the noise and horns of cars cause noise pollution.
- Due to high crowds of cars, there are a lot of traffic jams in the cities.
- The maintenance of cars is very expensive and is needed to be done regularly so that the car may remain in proper condition.
Advancements in cars
Cars when introduced were not like today’s cars. They were not that fast and not even that safe as today’s cars are. Many new technologies have been introduced in cars like back cameras to help in reversing the car to avoid accidents. One of the most advanced things introduced in cars these days is the backup cameras. These cameras are very vital in avoiding a lot of accidents although at the moment they are very expensive.
Working of backup cameras in cars
The backup cameras record the footage and are linked to many sensors in the car. Those sensors help in auto-braking and stopping the car when it gets near to another vehicle or anything else. To tackle things at night wireless backup cameras with night vision have also been made that even track things at night.
This technology is very expensive and is mostly used in very expensive cars, in fact only 5% of cars are using them now. It is not perfect either as in some cases it does not work. It will be revolutionary once the technicians get it right and will be life-saving.
