The wrong way to transport cars on the ocean

The fires on cars in this video were caused due to cars being stowed with engines facing forward. Salt water spray enters the motor grids, causing short circuits in the batteries. Then…bye bye autos!
This is due to the very long time that cars spend on the ocean and outdoors. Waves can often reach cars.

That is why it is recommended that cars be transported to the bottom of the ship in an enclosed space.
