You may or may not have heard the joke about the motor vehicle agencies. People say in jest that, like any other part of public employees working in these offices take forever to accomplish something.

Hydrocarbons are known to cause liver damage and even cancer. They are also an important contribution, the smog in urban areas. Motor vehicles produce hydrocarbons as a result of unburned fuel or partially burned.
Carbon monoxide: This is the stuff that kills you when you fall asleep in the garage with a car engine running. A product of incomplete combustion, carbon monoxide has nothing to do with the color and smell of smoke from the exhaust pipe: carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless and tasteless, which is lighter than air. Carbon monoxide reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, overexposure, as we know can be fatal. Read the rest of this entry »
