Defect and Diffusion Forum. The quality of these components provides for the level of road safety. The impact of a car on the road safety is determined by its safety design.

Safety design of a vehicle is determined at the manufacturing stage on the basis of laws, rules and regulations; the safety feature is controlled during the whole life cycle of a motor by: 3.

The scientific method is an empirical method of acquiring knowledge that has characterized the development of science since at least the 17th century.

It involves careful observation, applying rigorous skepticism about what is observed, given that cognitive assumptions can distort how one interprets the involves formulating hypotheses, via induction, based on such observations.
