If your in the market to buy a new car, there are new features available that could be very useful to help mitigate or avoid the chances of an accident. Have you ever caught yourself in a situation where you could not see the other driver in your blind spot, or backing out in a busy parking lot and can’t see the other car coming? Well now there are safety systems that are included in cars to help with unforeseen situations.
According to Car Safety Consumer Reports the Safety systems include:
Automatic emergency braking: Brakes are automatically applied to prevent a collision or reduce collision speed.
Forward-collision warning: Visual and/or audible warning intended alert the driver and prevent a collision.
City automatic emergency braking: Brakes are automatically applied to prevent a collision or reduce collisions
High-speed automatic emergency braking: Brakes are automatically applied to reduce collision severity when traveling at highway speeds.
Pedestrian Detection - Detects pedestrians, then issue warning and trigger automatic emergency braking
Lane departure warning: Visual, audible, or haptic warning to alert the driver when they are crossing lane markings.
Lane keeping assist: Automatic corrective steering input or braking provided by the vehicle when crossing lane markings.
Blind spot warning: Visual and/or audible notification of vehicle in blind spot. The system may provide an additional warning if you use your turn signal when there is a car next to you in another lane.
Rear cross-traffic warning: Visual, audible, or haptic notification of object or vehicle out of rear camera range, but could be moving into it.
Rear automatic emergency braking: Brakes are automatically applied to prevent backing into something behind the vehicle. This could be triggered by the rear cross-traffic system, or other sensors on the vehicle.
Lane-centering assist: Continuous active steering to stay in between lanes
Adaptive cruise control: Adaptive cruise uses lasers, radar, cameras, or a combination of these systems to keep a constant distance between you and the car ahead, automatically maintaining a safe following distance. If highway traffic slows, some systems will bring the car to a complete stop and automatically come back to speed when traffic gets going again, allowing the driver to do little more than pay attention and steer.
Cars today are continuously being updated and innovated to keep drivers, passengers and pedestrians safe on the road. When you’re looking for a new car to buy, be sure to check into these key safety features that can help prevent collisions. Be safe on the roads!
