How car technology help prevent car accidents

Many of the vehicles you see on the roads in Michigan are equipped with car accident prevention technology. These cars are much safer than many older model vehicles because they have systems in place to warn motorists of hazards. However, as some drivers become more reliant on new car technology to prevent motor vehicle accidents, they become less defensive about their driving behaviors and make more errors. 

It is no secret that car technology helps to save lives. However, these systems are much more effective when drivers are not engaged in distracting activities like texting, surfing the web and focusing on other things than the roads. Here is a brief overview on how car safety features help prevent motor vehicle collisions and injuries. 

Crash deterrent systems 

Some vehicles are equipped with front crash detection systems that alert drivers when the front of their cars are in danger of colliding with another vehicle, object or pedestrian. These systems take automatic control of the cars to safely maneuver them and minimize the risk and severity of impact and injury to drivers and all vehicle occupants. 

Automatic brake systems 

Many people do not apply their brakes in time to avoid collisions. Car manufacturers now produce vehicles that have special brake systems that work in conjunction with crash prevention systems. Once the CPS system recognizes collision hazards, it sends a signal to the brake system, forcing the vehicle to slow down and stop even if the driver does not press the brake pedal. 

Automated lights 

Not all drivers remember to turn their headlights on in areas where there is low visibility. Many newer cars are not just equipped with automated headlights. There are car lamps that also move in the same direction as the steering wheel to make it easier for drivers to see around curves when it is dark out and avoid crash situations. 

Although technology is advancing at a rapid pace, drivers should not rely solely on their vehicle's safety features. They should continue to use good judgment, avoid distractions, drive defensively and take refresher driving courses to prevent car accidents.
