What is Crash Bar ?
Why Indian Government has banned Crash guard ?
The Union ministry of road transport and highways asked all states to take stern action against unauthorised fitment of crash guards in vehicles. In a written communication to the transport commissioner of all states and Union Territories, the ministry stated that crash guards “pose serious safety concerns to the pedestrians as well as occupants of the vehicle.
“It is a misconception that crash guards add safety to vehicle passengers. The front of every car has built in crumple zones which help reduce the impact of an accident. When a crash guard is fitted to a car, it can make the crumple zones ineffective during a crash, transmitting force to the passengers, thereby causing injuries,” a transport official said. It also interferes with the working of air bags in the car apart from posing serious danger to pedestrians and cyclists.
Also as per the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, these accessories are illegal and installing them can attract a fine of Rs.1,000 for the first offence and Rs.2,000 for subsequent offences. Those who sell or deliver such accessories are liable to be fined as much as Rs.5,000.

What is ABS ?
Who invented ABS ?
The ABS was invented by Gabriel Voisin in 1929.The German firm Bosch had been developing anti-lock braking technology since the 1930s, but the first car using Bosch’s electronic system became available in 1978. They first appeared in trucks and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. ABS Systems were later introduced on motorcycles.
How ABS Works ?
ABS technology uses sensors to measure speed of each wheel to determine if one or more wheels are trying to lock up during braking. If a wheel tries to lock up, a series of hydraulic valves limit or reduce the braking on that wheel. This prevents skidding and allows you to maintain steering control thus preventing the vehicle to loose direction.
Why ABS is important for safe driving ?
When you require to stop the car in emergency situation ,With ABS brakes the braking distance for a car to come to a full stop is much shorter than if there where no ABS brakes.
When you brake hard a car without ABS Brakes the tyres skid and the area of the tyre in contact with the road gets worn out. Frequent use of hard braking on Indian roads lead to the tyre getting worn out in different areas on the tyre and this leads to the tyre getting out of balance and causing vibrations;Hence ABS system increases life of your car tyre.
Also the ABS system prevents the car from turning into multiple directions on application of immediate brakes.It makes the car stable on application of immediate brakes.
