Electric police car

Kids emulate everything adults do: cooking, dressing up, carpentry, and driving, which will, of course, enable them to learn these things later in life. We buy toys which are then made to support this early learning, such as toy cookware, tea sets, appliances, dolls, power tools, and of course toy vehicles, the best example of which is an electric police car for kids. If only there were toys to teach kids to do the dishes or take out the trash! But thankfully there are dolls for wee-wee and potty training.

Aren’t motorized electric cars expensive? Now why would an electric police car be a great toy for kids? By electric police cars we mean an electric police car kids can ride on. This review starts with a bit from the past when this writer got a little past the toddler stage. The family didn’t have much and can only afford to buy die-cast matchbox vehicles while the kid next door got an expensive ride-on motorized electric sports car and we would watch the kid happily ride the car in his backyard. Being friends, the writer did get to experience the car and enjoyed it and, is very sure kids of that age would enjoy it as well. Strides in technology and cheaper materials now make such expensive toys more affordable and better candidates to buy as Christmas or birthday gifts.

So what makes an electric police car for kids a great toy? Well, driving various vehicles is one of the top things to do in kids’ imaginary world from pushing or pulling along small toy vehicles to driving or flying in a cardboard box, better yet, playing cops and robbers while pretending to drive at the same time, for male kids at most or tomboyish girls. For starters a ride-on electric car makes a great gift because it moves on its own power, so the child doesn’t have to make much effort and can concentrate on whatever adventure he or she is in (though a pedal powered car for kids with a little more mass would not be a bad idea). The child can literally ride around (patrol) the house without having to walk and that teaches the child early on how to start/stop and steer or do stake-outs on their next-door neighbors. And aside from basic car sounds like honking and beeping an electric police car for kids often comes with a light-up rotating light and siren sounds (annoying for adults, but a bucket of fun for children).

So the last question is where to buy a motorized electric police car for kids? They’re easily available online if you know where to look and what to look for. For starters, eBay, Amazon, or a simple Google search can yield dozens of online toy stores where one can buy an electric police car for kids. Many large toy stores keep these in their inventory as well along with other expensive ride-on electric cars. Electric police cars can come in cool designs and colors, but what sets them apart are the police markings and the common red and blue signal lights. A motorized electric police car for kids is a Christmas or birthday gift that doubles the excitement.

  1. The concept of nrlaey free energy’ sounds nice on paper. Unfortunately in reality, there is no such thing as nrlaey free energy’.People in third world countries have more important things to think about than fancy electric cars. There are people starving, and living in pathetic conditions (usually while the people responsible live in luxury). Granted, it would be an excellent idea to break Americas oil addiction through the use of electric cars, but you have to look at the reality of the situation. People want powerful cars there are some electrics that provide this power (see teslamotors.com for a mind numbing display of what is possible with electric cars). The problem is, all of these cars even the nrlaey free’ ones require electricity. In TN where I live, the electricity comes primarily from coal fire steam plants. Even if everyone here had an electric or hybrid car (and even if the majority were economical which some are not), the added electrical demand would require all of the existing plants to run at full capacity (and would probably require additional ones to be built).The only real solution is to work towards changing peoples mindset. Currently, people want to all drive their own car to work and other places they only carpool when absolutely necessary. They want the freedom’ that having your own car gives you. A lot of them purchase vehicles that are much bigger (or higher performance) than necessary, some simply as status symbols. Unless you can convince these people to switch to economical cars, or to start using public transportation (combined with an actual effort to promote and expand public transportation) this will never change.

  2. Electric cars have been thought of as one answer to our dependence on fossil fuel burning vehicles. Their main appeal is that they produce no air pollution at the point of use so provide a way of shifting emissions to less polluted areas.Unfortunately also “out of sight” are the environmental consequences of manufacturing and recycling the lead- acid batteries electric vehicles require to run on.A recent report in Science (Lave et al, vol. 268, p 993. May 1995) drew attention to the problem of lead batteries in electric cars: “Smelting and recycling the lead for these batteries will result in substantial releases of lead to the environment”. The researchers compared the power, efficiency and environmental effects of electric cars with petrol powered vehicles. Not only are electric cars comparatively slower and far more restricted in the distance they can travel but release more lead into the environment as well.The study showed that an electric car with batteries made from newly mined lead releases 60 times more lead than that of a car using leaded petrol. (Their example uses the relatively high 2.1 g/gallon leaded petrol used in the US in 1972 and in some Australian states up to the 1990).Although the lead discharged in lead smelting and reprocessing is generally less available to humans in the U.S. than that dispersed by leaded petrol cars driving where people are living (only one percent of U.S. petrol sold is leaded) – there are still significant hazards. Lead processing facilities release lead into the air and waterways, and lead in solid waste leaches slowly into the environment.Electric car by Alexander Claud aged 10.Clearly electric cars, despite their “good for the environment” image create far more of a problem than leaded petrol cars. In addition “If a large number of electric cars are produced, the demand for lead for batteries will surge, requiring more lead to be mined.” (ibid, p.995)Manufacture needs to be halted until an alternative safer power source is found. This rules out current alternatives such as nickel-cadmium and nickel metal hydride batteries which are also highly toxic and far more expensive. Researchers speculate that sodium-sulphur and lithium-polymer technologies may eventually be used.

  3. Yes, Electric cars are better for the environment than your conventional car. Why? The main reason is that when a conventional car burns fuel, It is much dirtier than when an electric car is running. As a matter of fact, Electric cars are considered 97% cleaner. However, this power that is charging the car has to come from somewhere, right? Correct. Power plants are still creating the power somewhere else. However, these plants create power on a much larger scale and are relatively much cleaner than your typical combustion engine in a normal car. Obviously, this means that a direct effect of the electric car is that it leads to cleaner air, a stronger ozone layer, and a healthier environment for humanity.
