Technology and machinery has indeed come a long way. In this generation, both are part of every person’s lives. Aside from having the advancement in computers, machines like cars also made their own improvements. People today are coping up with their busy schedules especially when it comes to work. Sometimes their job becomes so stressing that there are days some people will wake up late for work. Like any other scenarios, when a person is late for work, it is inevitable that they go beyond the speed limit when driving.

States impose speed limits to car drivers in order to avoid unnecessary deaths caused by accidents on the road, but there are people who forgets automobile safety just for personal gain or because they enjoy the adrenaline rush of gaining speed.

In some states, road safety is very important that they post police cars on certain roads or streets in the city with the goal of detecting drivers who go beyond the speed limit. Today, the police uses different kinds of technologies to aid them in detecting over speeders. One of these is called speed cameras. The speed camera can easily detect cars that are over the speeding limit. Once caught, you will be charged with speed camera fines.

As mentioned, technology has come a long way, and with that people have created the so called cop radar or radar detectors. These detectors will help car drivers in determining if whether a cop is near their area. Once the cops are detected by the radar, the car driver can have extra seconds to slow down before the cops see him.

Many radar detectors are now sold in the market. As the police try to improve their methods of eliminating over speeders, other people also enhances their gadgets just to avoid the cops. For some people, it is good to have radar detectors so that they can avoid unjust traffic ticketing.

Unichip Performance Chips – The Ultimate Power Upgradeip

Posted on 04 January 2011 by bobby

Listen to this Post. Powered by iSpeech.org

First of all, the Unichip Tuner is really a sophisticated performance chip, not a typical “tuner” styled engine management device. Out of the 11 different tuners made that I have personally reviewed, none are as slick as the Unichip.

The Unichip Tuner is a fully functional computer, working seamlessly with your car’s engine management program. The  result: Power. One hundred percent use of your engine’s available horsepower and torque.

Unichip Tuners are known worldwide as the ultimate “Universal Chip” due to the benefits listed below:

1. Unichips can be found on just about any vehicle because of universality, due to it’s extremely open architecture. Still, before you go plop down your hard-earned money, be sure to verify compatibility with your particular vehicle.

2. Fits piggy-back style with existing electronic fuel injection systems. This makes an otherwise untuneable Engine Management System tuneable.

3. Unichip’s plug and play models are not only designed to work with specific vehicle models, they are precisely calibrated for most aftermarket add-ons like cold air intakes and exhaust systems.

4. The Unichip is a universal tuning solution that is able to control timing, fueling and, if applicable, boost on any vehicle that has an ECU.

5. This is one of the most impressive of all features: You are able to display, measure, record and play real-time engine performance data on your own hand-held Windows based PDA device when you add the Flux software program.

You will have to verify with Unichip that you have the correct version
required for Flux, but just imagine how beneficial it will be to be able to use your own Windows based PDA to monitor your engine performance at any time.

The list of benefits could go on and on. As a practical matter, there are just too many to note here. You can read over 25 customer reviews and see what they say vs. Bratislavska kra what the company website says and know for yourself if the Unichip is a good buy or not.

Never Underestimate Distractions While Driving

Distracted driving is found to be one of the key reasons for the ever-increasing road mishaps in US recently. The system and the government officials are taking the fact quite seriously. However, the statistics has revealed a shocking fact, which shows the number of people who continue distracted driving casually. In the recently released catalogue for distracted driving facts for the year 2009, the Department of Transportation in US has termed the situation as an “epidemic.”Here are some facts and figures that are sure to open your eyes as of why you should be cautious while driving:- Distracted driving has been the major cause for 16% of all crashes in U.S. and it accounts for 20% of the traffic injury accidents previous year, according to data that is provided by the (GES) General Estimates System. In actual figures, it translates to almost 6,700 traffic demises and 446,000 automotive crash injuries. Cell phone is also a leading factor, which contributes to 995 cases of deaths due to distracted driving and 25,000 of accidents. The under-19 age group contains the greatest percentage of distracted drivers, and is closely followed by the 21-28 age groups. In the course conducted for 150-Car Naturalist Driving lessons, the astonishing fact was revealed that the association of the driver in secondary errands has contributed to 23 percent of all the mishaps during the phase of the study.Cell phones are definitely the largest reason for distracted driving which is single handed more than the rest combined together. Cell phone habit has caused 600,754 crashes, 330,007 injuries, and has cost 4,000 people their lives on an average year according to the transportation department of U.S.So when you are off for driving follow the traffic rules, to switch off phones or at least switch them to silent mode. If you suspect the call to be an important one park the vehicle, turn off the engine and then start your conservation. Follow my advice or lest you may not live to regret it later.
