Car batteries are designed to run and recharge while a car is in motion. However, some car batteries malfunction and shut off while a car is being driven.
When this occurs, many of the electric-powered car devices will turn off. This could cause the driver to lose control of his or her vehicle. If the vehicle is seriously damaged, then the driver or passengers may be injured in the accident.
One way to prevent such accidents is to check car batteries routinely to determine if there are any defects. These checks can usually be performed at service stations and other places that manufacture car batteries.
