Four Important Vehicle Safety Functions for 2020

Car Safety Features You Should Know

The sheer number of cars on the road today makes a mishap not avoidable, so knowing which automobile safety tech you must have becomes crucial. We have gone from the days of optional seat belts to mandatory airbags, traction control, and tire pressure monitoring systems in almost all new automobiles on the marketplace. The checklist of optional safety tech that’s now available on many vehicles is staggering, and we’re striving to see to it that your brand-new Mercedes-Benz is the safest one yet.


Automobile Safety Ratings are Calculated How?

Presently, the NHTSA judges cars on a 5-Star range based on their performance in 3 certain collision scenarios: Front Crashes, Side Crashes, and Rollover Collisions. While crashes can take place in many situations these types of accidents are the most typical, and based upon the study of these mishaps, the necessary safety technologies are implemented in a vehicle; so let’s take a quick look at each scenario:


Front Collision Scenario

This is when 2 automobiles are traveling in opposite directions and hit each other in a head-on accident, or when an automobile loses control and strikes an object (like a tree, utility pole, or a structure) in a head-on accident.


Side Collision Scenario

One of the most typical side accident scenarios is when one vehicle does not yield to a stop sign or traffic light and strikes the other car on the side. This is commonly referred to as a t-bone, as the cars develop a ‘T’ shape when they crash. Another type of side accident is when an automobile loses control and slides sideways into a barrier like an energy post or tree.


Rollover Situation

This scenario is when you lose control of your vehicle and it rolls over. A rollover can be triggered by losing control of your automobile or a mix of severe maneuvers such as fast, high-speed turning to stay clear of a barrier.


Which Car Safety Features are Required by Law?

Despite every one of the arising automobile safety technologies, there are just a couple of that are considered mandatory by regulations. These mandated safety features include Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Monitor, Electronic Stability Control, and Backup Cameras. Brand new cars will certainly have that technology and in addition, the NHTSA advises the following Motorist Assistance Technologies:


Forward Accident Warning

This attribute detects a potential collision and signals the vehicle driver a warning.


Automatic Emergency Situation Braking

This technology immediately applies the brakes when a forward collision is looming.


Lane Departure Alert

This system checks lane markings and alerts the motorist if they inadvertently leave their lane.


Back-up Cam

While currently mandatory on the majority of new cars and trucks, adding a video camera to older vehicles is recommended.

This list shouldn’t be interpreted as a complete list of safety technologies, there will constantly be many numerous and new technologies that will help keep you much safer.
