Minimizing Electric Shocks During Electric Vehicle Crashes

An electric vehicle (EV) has several environmental and safety benefits than a fuel-based model. For one, the fire risks are lower because it does not carry dangerous fuels such as petrol which can ignite in the event of an accident. However, electric vehicles have a set of risks because of the high voltages they use …
