About This Quiz

Since their invention in the late 1800s, cars have been part of our daily lives. They are an important part of our routines, taking us to and from work, to the store and back, on vacation or just out for a day trip. Imagine a world without them. It would be terrible, would it not? Our independence would simply not exist at the level it does today.

That said, cars can be dangerous, especially when we or others drive recklessly. So let's test your knowledge about a range of car facts, ranging from accident figures, safety devices, world records, top speeds and the like. 

For instance, do you know the world record for the most people in a Smart car? Or whose limousine did President Franklin Roosevelt 'borrow' in 1941. What about the number of people injured in car accidents around the world, or more tragically, the number of people killed in accidents each year? And when it comes to your safety, how long does it take for an airbag to deploy or what should your car horn only be used for?

These are just some of the interesting facts you will discover in our Car Facts Quiz.

Do you think you can ace it?
