There are a small number of amusement facilities in each city's bazaar, such as a ferris wheel, a merry-go-round, etc., but there is nothing more attractive to children than floor-driven bumper cars. The reason is simple: even if you are only 10 years old, as long as you are tall enough to meet the safety requirements, you can enjoy driving in bumper cars and crashing into other cars.

Floor-driven bumper car history: where it started
The history of bumper cars is still under debate. Some claim that they were invented by Victor Levand, who works for General Electric, while others say Max and Harold Stoehrer of Massachusetts. To be sure, the Stuart brothers were the first to apply for a patent for their bumper cars. Their first patent was applied in December 1920.

Initially, these rides were indeed a nightmare for parents. These cars are sometimes tinned and sometimes have to be nailed together between rides. They may be kicked a good shot. Sometimes the parts come off during riding. "Scientific American" thinks they are "difficult to manage", but the Stoller brothers have seen how many people like them. They took out advertisements and called Dodge cars "Rolls Royce of entertainment equipment." Eventually, the car becomes safer.

Some interesting facts about bumper cars
As Bumpercars.org pointed out, Newton's law is indeed related to bumper cars. The third law of motion states that for every movement, there will be an equal and opposite reaction. This is why when you hit someone with a bumper car, it also causes bumps and usually bounces in the opposite direction.

There are three other factors that determine how shocking you feel when you hit someone:
Type of collision, how fast the car travels, the quality of the car and the quality of the driver.

These days, cars are powered by electricity flowing through the floor. In the past, cars were connected to the ceiling by a pole, some were still, but later, metal bands alternated insulating bands on the floor. The brush under the vehicle interacts with the strip to generate the voltage that powers the car.
