Most of the time when you drive, the task seems routine and ordinary. However, human error, road conditions and car malfunctions can cause accidents resulting in bodily harm or even death. Fortunately, technological advances in automobiles are helping keep drivers safer today than ever before.
Alerts for the Drowsy Drivers
Drunken driving and driving while distracted by electronic devices are huge culprits for causing accidents. But drowsy driving is a significant problem as well. If you’re behind the wheel and begin nodding off, pull over. To give you additional help, cars today are equipped with tools that help you know when it’s time to take a minute and rest.
Stay in Your Own Lane
Drifting aimlessly from one lane to another puts you and other drivers at risk. An innovative feature now allows cars to steer themselves back into the appropriate lane when you’ve incorrectly wandered into adjacent lanes. This feature is helpful if you’ve become distracted or are falling asleep.
Inexperienced and careless drivers often have problems making turns. These drivers fail to slow down sufficiently put them in danger of rolling. One safety tool in cars today is stability control, slowing your wheel during a turn.
Stay safe with these advancements. To learn more about innovative features that keep new cars safer, call Jim’s Auto Body in Concord today at 925-689-6117.
