Static Electricity the Dangers?

Answer

Static electricity can spark a fire or cause an explosion. When you exit and re-enter your car while at the petrol stations, there is the potential for static electricity to build up and a spark can discharge between your body and the fuel nozzle. Static Electricity can also damage electrical equipment such as computers.
