Aerial Speed Enforcement

A method of speed enforcement using premeasured distance markers, visible from the aire, to determine the speed of vehicles on the gournd. A pilot and spotter, in fixed-wing or rotary aircraft, 'clock' vehicles and radio a description of the offender's vehicle to officers on the ground who intercept the vehicle and isuue a citation.

Air Bag

The air bag, also known as a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint System, is a passive safety device, supplemental to safety belts, that inflates to provide a cushion to absorb impact forces during moderate to severe frontal collisions. This system can help to lessen the chance of contact with the steering wheel, instrument panel and windshield. The air bag is actuated automatically by sensors located in the front of the vehicle. To maximize effectiveness, seat and shoulder belts must always be used in conjunction with this system.

Air Filtration System

It purifies both interior circulated air and outside polluted air. It gets rid of smog, pollen, exhaust, smoke and odors.


An aerodynamic device designed to improve traction by increasing the downforce on the car. The use of airfoils (also called wings) increases the cornering capability and improves stability at speed, but often at the expense of additional aerodynamic drag.


A street or highway intended to provide access to the rear or side of lots or buildings in urban districts and not intended for the purpose of through vehicular traffic.
