    Bus and Car Performance, do they have any differences?

    You can't just imagine the difference between these two or what they have in store. Yes, car had the reputation of the highest quality in most of the vehicles in the road, probably about 70 percent of the consumers bought a car rather than any automobiles. But with the new addition regarding with the engine performance, its surely make the riding in a public transportation the most of it. Huge vehicles such as buses, move people on to their destination near or far. Those vehicles are really tested on all road conditions and also give passengers the comfort of riding especially on a long travel. Just like cars, buses also improve when it comes to technology; from the engine performance, the process of riding comfort and even the safety of the passenger. However could it be ultimately end up into the idea of the primary controller of nearly all engines? Perhaps. Howcome? With these new advances people can start to see the fast and safety finally will be bridged.


    Powered by huge diesel engine, which produces a massive power and torque though they have a low RPM. Although most of the cars uses petrol fuel than diesel. Still these engines provides the power and It also comes with a 6-speed or 5 speed transmission. Automatic or electronic type of transmission is now available on bus.

    Riding and Comfort

    Air suspension makes the ride more comfortable and stable. Steering is not a problem with the help of power steering, so you can easily manipulate the wheels.

    Drive Layout

    They have two types of drive layout, Front Engine Rear Wheel Drive (FR) and Rear Engine Rear Wheel Drive (RR).

    Brake Systems

    Nowadays ABS or anti-lock braking system is now applied, the only difference is cars don't use air brakes like the buses do and a full set of drum brakes (front and rear), passengers now could feel safety even in a fast driving.

    Despite a long list of ideological enthusiasm for developing a new transportation, it ought to be maintained that Engineers and Manufactures in technology civilization has ultimately been an economic endeavour. Without their ingenuity, perhaps riding a bus would be still stressful for those commuters. Hopefully with these new improvements and features with the public buses, there is no denial that in the mere future the success rate for this new generation of vehicles will definitely tremendous.

    – (Part Two)

    If you have two cars and need to move the child seat between cars regularly, then get a seat that is light and easy to install. Or better yet, get two safety car seats to spare you the trouble of constant transferring.

    Always check if the seat belt is firm and the straps are not twisted and fit snugly. Adjust the harness and the shoulder straps as the child grows. Do not continue to use this restraint if your child has outgrown the seat. Make sure you purchase a child car restraint or car seat that complies accordingly to Australian Safety Standards. When fitted correctly, only then can good parents like you have peace of mind while traveling with your kid.

    Additional Resources

    •, online shopping site in Australia where you can find quality child restraints.
    •, free used car classifieds where you can find the best value, child-friendly automobiles in Australia
    •, has guidelines from the Australian Safety Standards for child safety seats.

    Booster Seat

    This is for children who have outgrown their safety car seat. Children who are 14-26 kg or from 2 years to 7 years are ready for the booster seat.

    A general guideline in buying a booster seat is to check if your child's eyes are at the same level as the vehicle's headrest.

    Also, the sash part must only cross your child's shoulder and must not run across his or her neck. If this occurs, then your child is still not tall enough to use a booster seat.

    Types of Booster Seats

    Booster Seats with Back and Side Wings

    The side wings protect the child's head and neck against impact collisions and at the same time offer comfort as your child sleeps.

    Child Car Seat/Booster Seat Combination

    This combination may be used as a car seat until your child reaches approximately 18 kg. This booster seat raises the height of your child so that an adult seat belt fits properly. Then the harness straps can be tucked away inside the seat when it becomes a booster with a lap/sash belt.

    Booster Cushions

    Not recommended since there is no back, neck, or head support. In a collision, they do not offer any real protection for your child, unlike the first two types with back support.

    Many other quality sites which offer advice are Another thing to remember is that should you buy a used car online, make sure it has a child seat fitted. Check's auto classifieds, where you can find the right combination of motor vehicle and safety seat for your child.

    – (Part One)

    By law, all adults, children, infants and toddlers, must wear a seat belt at all times when traveling in a motor car in Australia.

    But let's not just use a seat belt because the law says so; seat belts and car seats are made for our safety, so let's do ourselves and our loved ones that priceless favor.

    Anxious caring parents will often get the most expensive safety car seat for their darling baby, but the truth is no one car seat is the best or the safest.

    When choosing a car seat, the best one has the right fit for your vehicle, for your baby, and for your budget. Of course, a car seat is only as good as how you use it, so make sure you follow the instructions in buckling up your infant properly.

    Child restraints are very important especially for older styles of used cars. Sites like and offer information on suitable infant restraints for your vehicle, as well as car safety features for your child.

    Important safety rules

    • Always use a car safety seat appropriate for your child's age and weight.
    • Start early by using the car seat for your baby on her first ride home from the hospital.
    • Never place a child in a rear-facing car safety seat in the front seat of a vehicle that has a passenger air bag.
    • The safest place for all children to ride is in the back seat.
    • Set a good example for your child. If they see you buckling up before you drive, they'll get the habit.
    • Read and strictly follow the instructions of your car safety seat.
    • Get an licensed technician to install your car safety seat.

    There are four basic types of car seats and restraints for babies and children.

    • Infant restraint
    • Child car seats
    • Booster seats
    • Child harness

    Infant Restraint

    Infant restraints are for babies from birth up to six months of age, or babies at least 9 kg.

    Infant restraints are designed to have your baby face rearward. This means that the baby must lie down, as this is the safest way to travel. Moreover, this supports the back and neck of the infant in the event of a collision or during heavy braking.

    Convertible or Dual-Purpose Infant Restraint

    These are specifically designed to be used in the rearward facing position until a baby weighs 8-9 kg, at which time it can then be used as a child car seat in the forward facing position.

    Convertible restraints can be used as your child grows, but experts still suggest you use a single-purpose infant restraint that is specifically fitted for your baby.

    Safety Procedures When Using an Infant Seat

    • Do not fold a baby’s napkin too thickly at the back because the baby’s back will not be supported evenly and will cause discomfort.
    • If there is an airbag in a position where an infant restraint is to be used, check the car owner's manual for advice in this instance.
    • Keep the Velcro strap of the restrain free from lint so that they sticks tightly.
    • Adjusted the harness's fit on the baby as snugly as possible, making sure that they are not slack and the straps are not twisted.

    Additional Resources

    •, for safety features your car should have right now.
    • car classifieds, where you can find details about various infant restraints suitable for your motor vehicle's make.

    For Toddlers/Small Children

    Babies should only move into a child car seat once they weigh around 8-9 kg and can hold they head up easily on their own. For toddlers six months to four years (8 to18kg), use a forward-facing child car seat. Because these car seats are forward-facing, do not use them with vehicle seats that face sidewards or rearwards. Most good online sites like, and offer information in their classifieds about child car restraints, as well as products you can purchase online.
