December 2006 (Medialink) -- Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCV's) are slated to be all the rage for the future and may revolutionize on-road transportation in the next few years. This new emerging technology has the potential to significantly reduce energy use and harmful emissions, as well as our dependence on foreign oil.
The first Fuel Cell Vehicle with a radius of 250 miles at the largest distance to date at is debuting at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show for the first time, supporting that FCV's are sustainable as a viable technology. Fueled with pure hydrogen gas onboard in high-pressure tanks, they can also be fueled with hydrogen-rich fuels; such as methanol, natural gas, or even gasoline. Previously, FCV's only worked efficiently in warm weather, but this latest technology starts easily even at temperatures as low as minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit, making it accessible for everyone anywhere.

How Its Made Three-wheeled Vehicles
A lunatic jumps out of a moving vehicle with his kids still inside. So much for that Father of the Year award.
This instructional video by Scuba**** discusses the advantages of using scooters. Having a scooter, also known as a diver propulsion vehicle, will eliminate the need to kick since it is moving you through the water. It is common to improve your diving time by about 50% because the less you work the less you breathe. The battery life on a scooter is approximately 90 minutes and has a speed of about 2.5mph.
Burnout 2 - 25 vehicles totalled on Freeway Fury
For decades automakers have researched crash safety with controlled experiments. And the use of seat belts, airbags, and roll cages have all dramatically improved occupant safety. Until now,
real world crashes were too unpredictable and therefore difficult to gather accurate information from. Safety researchers trying to reconstruct injuries in a crash have had to rely on engineering estimates of collision velocities and vehicles motions, before, during and after the collision to make dynamic assessments. But now, improved vehicle technology is making it possible to study actual crashes.
A new partnership between The University of Michigan Medical School and OnStar is working to collect crash and injury information from specific vehicle crashes. Acting as an eyewitness, OnStar’s Advanced Automatic Crash Notification transmits the crash severity, number of airbags deployed and location of the vehicle to an adviser, who passes that information along to first responders. With the permission of the owners and occupants the medical information, histories and x-rays are gathered and combined with the vehicle information to get a greater understanding of why injuries occur. This new research tool has the potential to improve emergency medical response techniques and improve vehicle safety.
