What is An AutoMobile

A car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods.

Begingings of The AutoMobiles

In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company.

Uses of The AuoMobiles Past - Present

During the first half of the twentieth century, the automobile evolved from a small curiosity to the dominant mode of ground transportation in the United States. Today Automobiles is the main use of transportation. In the US almost 60% of the poulation uses this method of transportation.

Innovation's on The AutoMobiles

Airbag Advancements - The first cars with airbags debuted in the early '70s; Chrysler was the first to make them standard in cars, in 1988.Airbags have graduated from things that simply blast out of the dashboard to more advanced devices that protect you in a rollover, cushion your knee and adjust for smaller drivers.

The DVD Player - Honda and Saturn first offered them as options in 2002 models. They shrunk the DVD player and TV you had in the family room and stuck it in a vehicle.


The Positive Impact on Society

The advantage of automobiles becomes hard if you try imagining life without them. Cars allow us to cross the United States in a matter of days, whether before automobiles, the trek would be a long, arduous journey full of danger and physically tough terrain. Aside from transporting us, automobiles also allow for the easy transport of goods and merchandise to travel from one part of the country to the other. This greatly increases what's available to most individuals, who would otherwise be limited to local supply.

The Negative Impact on Society

The widespread use of automobiles for business travel has also led in many cities to a decline in public-transit systems, and the need to develop and use mass transit has been much discussed. Given the trend toward dispersal of people and businesses from urban areas, it seems doubtful that mass transit will appreciably diminish motor vehicle traffic. Still, in most cities, bus systems can provide the needed capacity for public transportation and are the most economical way of doing so. The building of "light-rail" and subways have helped dial with this problem.
