Cars on Fire
Many factors contribute to car explosions or cars getting on fire. If a car gets hit on its gas tank or engine, a slight spark such as the rupture of batteries may cause a fire. Poor maintenance on your car or defects may also contribute to the fiery accident. Teens and young adults are more likely to be involved in these types of accidents, males usually more often than females. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries during a collision-induced car fire contact 1-800-411-PAIN.
Many times fuel system structural errors contribute to the malfunctioning fuel system in a car. Common defects include leaky fuel lines and improper protection of the fuel tank. Pull off the road if you smell gas. Leaking fuel will ignite with a fire. Sometimes replacing a gas cap it’s all you need but the problem might be more severe. Never restart your engine if you suspect there is a fuel leak in your car. Call a tow truck instead.
Automobiles have maintenance requirements. You can make your own check list: tires, oil, windows, brakes, fluids and everything else you can think of. Most engines are water-cooled. If your engine overheats you should wait until it cools down naturally. Try not to overfill your fuel tank. Fuel spillage might be very dangerous for other drivers, especially bikers. Remember after an accident, call 911 then 411 PAIN.
Teen drivers tend to disrespect the rules of the road more than adults. As more accidents arise, the need for education in the state of Florida increases too. The lack of driving experience, among other factors, is the common cause for these accidents. Male teens usually like to speed more than female teens.
