Why car or bus is a safe place to take shelter ?

The car or bus is a safe place to take shelter during a thunderstorm because when lightning strikes, the metallic body which is a good conductor of electricity, ensures that the energy of the lightning remains outside the body and is not transferred inside the vehicle. The occupants of the vehicle are protected as the lightning charge goes around the vehicle creating a faraday effect.
