Automobiles are self-propelled vehicles, usually a four-wheeled vehicle. They are used for travel on land, including in cities, and often in addition to public transportation such as trains and buses.
They are made of many different parts and can be very complicated. They also can be dangerous and can cause damage or hurt people when they crash.
A car is a very important part of our society, and it can help us get around a lot better. It is a good way to get places quickly and safely, and it is a great way to transport your family.
The first automobile was invented in 1885 by Karl Benz. He patented it in Germany and started to make and sell them in 1888.
Benz had a big success with his invention, but not everyone could afford one. So he worked with other people to make it affordable for all kinds of people. He was a very smart man. He did this by making cars in a factory and using assembly lines to make them quickly.
Today there are a lot of cars on the road. Some of them are special, for example a crane vehicle at a construction site, a roller in road construction and a fork-lift in a warehouse. Others are for emergency use, for example fire engines and ambulances.
When too many automobiles try to go the same way, they slow each other down and create traffic jams. This can make it difficult to find a parking place and can cause air pollution. So it is important that we try to use public transportation when possible.
