TODAY IS ODOMETER DAY
Odometers are one of the meters that come standard when purchasing a new car. Keeping track of the wear put on your engine by tracking the distance you’ve traveled. How did this invention come to be? Why is it so important?
Odometer Day is all about celebrating the invention of the odometer and how it has helped the design and function of automobiles progress. Without odometers, how could we track the progress we made?
