    Quality control starts at the point of product conception and is carried all the way through to the final design and manufacture of a product.

    Some motor vehicle accidents take place during the night time hours when natural sun light is not present.

    When we drive our vehicles down the road, we are driving them at a certain velocity and direction. All vehicles have weight and mass to the order of a few hundred pounds for a motorcycle, a few thousand pounds for a large SUV or luxury car or several tons for a tractor-trailer truck. When our vehicles move at speed down the road, they create energy by virtue of their mass and forward velocity
