A vehicle (from Latin: vehiculum) is a mobile machine that transports people or cargo. Typical vehicles include wagons, bicycles, motor vehicles (motorcycles, cars, trucks, buses), railed vehicles (trains, trams), watercraft (ships, boats), aircraft and spacecraft.
Land vehicles are classified broadly by what is used to apply steering and drive forces against the ground: wheeled, tracked, railed or skied. ISO 3833-1977 is the standard, also internationally used in legislation, for road vehicles types, terms and definitions.

    Putting a kill switch on a vehicle

    I have a nice but older diesel pickup, no integrated chip on the key. I need to get off my butt and put in a kill switch to mitigate the risk of theft. I did a bit of research and assume I'll probably want a solid, 30-amp switch. Anyone done it before? Thoughts, or things you'd do...

    I dont have a Conceal permit but I was wondering what Marion county, specifically the city of Salem, means when they say "readily accessible"? If my handgun is in a SnapSafe lockbox, locked, away from the key, but it's on my passenger seat, is this readily accessible? Just wondering if I can...

    Your daily-driver vehicle, and being able to get out of an escalating situation

    The 1980 song "Cars" was based on a road-rage incident. The singer Gary Newman was able to escape in West London in his Ford Cortina, but perhaps only because the pavement in that spot was quite wide.
