Making of a humble attempt to avoid Fatal Road Accidents

As and when there is a collision between two objects irrespective of whether or not the objects in motion {but energy is applied from outside through any means to cause a movement}, there bound to be an explosion or a burst or an ignition through production of a spark. As and when the impact is of high value, there bound to a fire at the impact point which may or may not be serious to claim lives. Further when there is loose fuel, around such area, fire shall immediately engulf the scene; leaving not enough time to any to flee from the zone.

Throughout the Globe we see such accidents continuously happening either on land or on water or in Air; no matter how much care we take to prevent it from happening but not all accidents resulted in catching of fire due to absence of production of sparks at the area of impact. As and when we face with such situation due to malfunctioning of Engine while flying in an Aircraft, we drain-off the fuel from the Plane prior to happening of a possible impact to save the lives of the Passengers.

Accordingly the catching of fire of two Volvo Busses, one after another within a very span of 2 weeks is a matter of deep concern being it is often unusual to see catching of fire of the Bus under such circumstances without a direct spark available around the area of the Accident to instantly force the Fuel Tank to get burst. While we appreciate the various suggestions of the Expert committee to overcome or to avoid such Accidents from happening which are mostly of precautionary nature for attacking the issue, the under noted deign change of the Fuel Tank shall eliminate the cause of occurring such Accidents within us to a large extent.   

A Deign Change 

It is not exactly the fuel {except Aviation Fuel} that instantly catches fire but the vapors produced inside the Tank by the loose Fuel does it. While making or undertaking a long travel, the more the Fuel Tank become empty, the more is the production of such vapors inside the Tank which cannot absorb any high intensity impact without crossing the flash point to catch fire immediately; as and when there exit even a small spark around. In order to avoid producing of such high stress within the Tank due to continuous jerking of the Fuel, filled within it, we can provide an inflatable plastic Rubber {having 10-15 PSI pressure within it} inside the Fuel Tank, which shall constantly keep the highly inflammable Fuel under constant compression and shall not allow much of vapor to produce inside the Tanks. Such a measure which can easily be installed everywhere, where we store inflammable material as a foolproof security measure of an appropriate nature. This shall not only cut down loss of Fuel through vaporization but also shall stop happening of Fatal Road Accidents as we have witnessed recently.    

With High Regards,
