Check out these infographics for a rounded look at the kind of trials and tribulations drivers face every day, no matter which country they happen to be in.
In the UK, road safety is a constant concern. Though accidents happen every day all over the country, this infographic gives you an insight into where the most fatal accidents occur. Definitely food for thought if you’re thinking of using these roads.

Depending on where in the world you are, your journey can be affected by a number of things; whether that’s the level of crime in the area, the populations’ propensity to alcohol, or even the local wildlife getting involved.

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
