New Crash Avoidance Technology - Does it Work?

Aug 6, 2014

Getting into a car crash can be a very scary event for all those involved. Many car companies have be developing many crash avoidance systems to help deal with this problem. If you are looking into buying a new car, make sure to consider a model that has these new crash avoidance systems in place to help keep you and your passengers safe while on the road. There are many new crash avoidance systems available, including:
  • Front crash prevention systems. There are two different types of front crash prevention systems, a forward collision warning, which will alert the driver to a potential frontal crash, and an autobrake, which will apply the brakes if the vehicle senses a frontal crash.
  • Lane prevention systems. These also come in two types, a warning system that will alert the driver if they start drifting into another lane without Turing on the turn indicator, and another one that will gently guide the car back into the lane.
  • Blind spot indicator. A blind spot indicator will indicate that there is another vehicle in your blind spot with a small light that shows on your side mirror.
  • Back up cameras. These cameras will allow you to see what is behind your vehicle when you are backing up to ensure that there is nothing in the way while you are backing up.
The big question on most people’s mind is still does crash avoidance technology really work? Although these technologies are relatively new, they are already helping to decrease the number of crashed of vehicles that are equipped with them. They have also shown to decrease the number of rollover crashes by more than 80 percent.
