Automobiles are a favorite mode of transportation and have revolutionized the landscape of the United States. People use them both for pleasure and for commerce. As such, they are the most valuable form of Personal Property in the U.S. They are also expensive to purchase, are heavily taxed, and are favorite targets of thieves. Unfortunately, they also create huge amounts of air pollution and cause tremendous personal injury. Automobile law is the legal framework that governs automobiles and covers four broad phases of their life cycle.

Motor vehicles

A motor vehicle is a wheeled vehicle used for transportation of people or goods. They are used for many different reasons, and are often referred to as automotive vehicles or motorized vehicles.

Self-propelled vehicles

A Self-Propelled Vehicle (SVP) is a type of motorized vehicle with a computer-controlled drive. This type of vehicle is used in many industries for material handling and transportation. In the automobile industry, these vehicles can be used in delivery, sorting, and assembly processes.


There are several different types of engines. The simplest type is the single-cylinder, while the most complex engine has many cylinders. Typically, a car has four to six cylinders. Engines with more cylinders can have as many as 12 and are typically more powerful than smaller engines.

Body designs

There are a number of different body designs for automobiles. These body designs are often classified based on the number of doors and the arrangement of seats. Convertible models, for instance, typically have a fabric top that retracts into the vehicle’s roof. While these convertible designs are not structurally sound, they have increased glass areas for improved visibility.

Safety standards

Safety standards for automobiles have an important role to play in reducing the risk of auto accidents. In addition to being a necessary step for preventing accidents, they are also necessary for the proper maintenance of vehicles. In order to increase the safety of automobiles, government policy should be implemented.

Social effects

One of the biggest social effects of automobiles is pollution. The exhaust from cars is toxic and causes ozone depletion and respiratory diseases. It also generates loud noise that can cause hearing problems and headaches. Because of these impacts, some environmental groups have launched campaigns to curb the use of cars. One of these campaigns is called “Don’t Be Fueled.” This campaign urges Americans to stop using oil to power their cars. It is a grassroots effort to reduce the amount of oil in the United States and combat global climate change.
