Latest Safety Features for New Car Shoppers

Vehicle technology seems to advance each year, as new features improve driver and passenger safety. The following are just a few driver-assist features to be aware of the next time you’re in the market for a new vehicle:

  • Adaptive cruise control: This type of cruise control automatically speeds or slows down your car based on the actions of the vehicles in front of you. This tool can help reduce the likelihood and severity of rear-end collisions.
  • Automatic braking: Automatic braking devices are designed to reduce the severity of high-speed collisions in the event of a lapse of driver attention. These devices can predict impending crashes and help combat distracted driving.
  • Blind-spot detection: Through the use of sensors, blind-spot detection systems sound an alarm in the event that an object is in your blind spot. These devices can help reduce accidents on the highway and are particularly useful for changing lanes.

If you purchase a vehicle with driver-assist features, it’s important to familiarize yourself with how they work. Doing so can help keep you safe on the road and allow you to get the most out of crash-prevention technology.
