Eco-Friendly Cars of The Future

An eco-friendly vehicle is as the name suggests, very helpful towards the environment. It doesn’t use the conventional internal combustion engine that use gasoline or diesel to operate. Eco friendly vehicles can be powered by alternative means of energy, most popular ones being, hydrogen powered, electricity powered and plug-in hybrid cars.

The main benefit behind the use of such vehicles is the reduction of fuel emitted gasses that cause supernatural climate change. The gasses that are emitted by the conventional cars are very dangerous in the long run. For example, the Co2 emissions have been linked to human illnesses like damage of respritory systems, cardiopulmonary disease and even lung cancer.

Safe drivers across the world have reported that the use of these vehicles in their day to day use, has saved them a lot of money yearly.

The three main cars that are dominating the market are the hybrid cars, the electric cars and the hydrogen cars.

  • Hybrid cars are powered by a petrol engine, which is why it’s called a ‘Hybrid’ car. It’s powered by both Petrol and Electricity. These cars lower the emission of greenhouse gasses, but only until they run on the electricity powered batteries. They will emit the same amount of gasses once the battery is out, since it will run on fuel.
  • Electric cars are not run on fuel at all. They rely entirely on electricity. The batteries on these cars need to be charged through conventional power sockets or Superchargers.

People think these cars are very eco-friendly compared to the fuel powered cars, but that isn’t the case. A recent study has shed some light on this topic, it mentioned that an electric car produces 80 % of the same emission that is emitted by the conventional Fuel powered car.

  • Hydrogen cars are also know as Fuel cell cars, they’re in their early stages of development, they’re still being worked on and presented to the public every year. The only emission of these types of cars is water pure enough, to drink.

In conclusion, eco-friendly cars are indeed, the future, but the only problem is that they’re still a thing of the future. The technology hasn’t achieved a complete eco-friendly result.

What to Do When Your Car Breaks Down

Imagine you’re driving in the middle of an isolated road, when suddenly your engine starts to break down, you manage to park your car at the side of the road. What do you do next? You hail a passerby who offers to tow your car to the nearest workshop. Do you take them up on it, or do you pass their offer? Before making a decision, there are a few things you need to consider in order to make sure you do not end up in the middle of a series of unfortunate events.

The first thing you need to know is that this kind of towing is illegal in most states and for good reason. This can be extremely dangerous, not only to both the parties involved, but to unrespecting passersby as well. A lot could go wrong and there are chances of you ending up in the middle of bad car crash which would be even worse than your current situation. Cars are heavy and the topes and chains used in towing may not be able to support the weight, the link might snap off causing the car being towed to go on a driverless adventure to an imminent crash.

What you should do is contact a towing service and let the professionals take over. These people will get to your location no matter where you are. Not only that, they have the proper equipment and experience to be able to handle your car according to its weight and other needs in order to make sure it sustains the least amount of damage during towing. This further prevents any possible accident that may occur if you try to get your car towed by an untrained professional.
