About Kids and Auto Safety

It has also been found that children learn auto safety habits from their parents. Nearly 40% of children that are riding in a vehicle where their parents didn’t bother to put on their seatbelts also did not have their seat belts on. Simply teaching your children to never get in a car without putting on their seat belt can be life saving.

Another big issue with child safety in automobiles is incorrectly used car seats, booster seats and seat belts. When using a car or booster seat, it is critical to read the instruction manual. The manual will give parents the details for proper installation of the seat into the vehicle and its proper use, not to mention the appropriate ages and heights that the seats are used for. It is estimated that over 45% of typical child restraint devices are used incorrectly by parents, thus reducing their effectiveness and even putting the child in harm’s way.

The fact is, proper usage of child restraint devices such as booster seats, car seats and seat belts is the #1 way to protect your child from fatal and serious injuries while you are driving. Proper use of a car seat reduces the risk of injury and death for infants by over 70%. For toddlers, ages 1 through 4 years old, the use of age appropriate car seats reduces the risk of injury by over 50%. For larger kids, ages 4 through 8 years old, a booster seat has been shown to reduce the risk of injury by 45%, when used in conjunction with a seat belt. Of course, for children over 8 and teens, proper seat belt use reduces the risk of injury and death in a vehicle by about half.

Right Fuel for Vehicle

Octane number is very crucial
The octane number is crucial for the optimum performance of the engine. The regular grade gasoline recommended for most vehicles has an octane number 87. High performance cars need premium grade gasoline or octane fuel with a rating of 89, 91 or 93. Many people think using premium grade gasoline gives better mileage and the vehicle moves faster. Fuel with a higher octane number helps the engine only if it is suggested by the manufacturer.

If the octane number is too high, it can adversely affect the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. The engine in a car designed to use 87 octane produces less power burning 91 or 93 octane. This makes the engine consume more fuel to perform at the same level.

Avoid using low grade or super fuels
Low grade fuel contains impurities and is not good for the engine in the long run. These impurities result in clogged filters and fuel lines. This, in turn, results in low fuel economy and poor performance of the vehicle.

Super fuels are not recommended unless suggested by the manufacturer. They contain additives that may clean the injectors, but can spoil the linings in the cylinder when used regularly. They are not that beneficial and are expensive.

Avoid driving at low fuel
Remember not to run your vehicle with low fuel in the tank. Here are some reasons why you should not drive your vehicle with low fuel for long distances – the fuel pump in the fuel tank could get damaged from overheating when the fuel is too low. The condensation of moisture in the air in the tank results in the accumulation of water and this water may get into the fuel pump and damage it.

LED Strips

DOs: The LED strips are flexible so they can be bent accordingly, within its limits of course. The strips can be bent no less than 90 degrees; you don’t want to snap them in half and break the circuits now. They’re great to trace as a border around your headlights because of the smooth and curved surface. You would have to know the limits of these LED strips so you don’t somehow bend them awkwardly or anything. When you bend the strip, the radius must be more than 20 degrees before you risk damaging them. As a car enthusiast, that’s probably the last thing you want to do.

DON’Ts: The LED strips may be flexible, but that doesn’t mean that they can be abused either. Don’t bend the LED at an extremely sharp angle or bend them horizontally, as these should be a given. While it may not be like the world is going to end if you somehow snapped your LED light strip, it’s still somewhat of a hassle to replace so it’s better not to test the strip’s limits. These harsh actions may damage your new strip’s circuit board and will result in the whole strip failing to light up. Imagine the embarrassment of being at an intersection with a half-lit set of awesome strip lights and treat these LED strips right!
