Car Safety Features for 2020

You Should Know These Car Safety Features

The sheer number of cars and trucks on the road these days makes an accident inevitable, so understanding which car safety options you need to have ends up being crucial. We’ve gone from the days of optional seat belts to mandatory airbags, traction control, as well as tire pressure monitoring systems in almost all brand-new vehicles on the market. The list of optional safety options that’s now readily available on most cars is staggering, and we’re striving to ensure that your brand-new Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is the best one yet.

Automobile Safety Ratings are Calculated How?

Currently, the NHTSA rates cars on a 5-Star range based upon their effectiveness in 3 particular accident scenarios: Front Crashes, Side Crashes, and Rollover Crashes. While crashes can occur in other scenarios these types of mishaps are the most common, and based upon the research of these mishaps, the appropriate safety tools are implemented in a vehicle; so let’s take a glance at each situation:

Front Accident Situation

This is when 2 cars are driving in opposite directions and strike each other in a head-on accident, or when a vehicle loses control and strikes an object (like a tree, utility pole, or a building) in a head-on crash.

Side Crash Situation

One of the most typical side collision scenarios is when one car fails to stop at a stop sign or traffic light and strikes the other automobile on the side. This is commonly referred to as a t-bone, as the automobiles create a ‘T’ shape when they crash. Another type of side accident is when a car loses control and slides sideways into an obstacle like an utility post or tree.

Rollover Scenario

This situation is when you lose control of your car and it rolls over. A rollover can be activated by losing control of your vehicle or a mix of serious maneuvers such as fast, high-speed turning to miss a barrier.

Some Car Safety Features are Required by Law, Which Ones Are They?

In spite of every one of the arising automobile safety features, there are just a couple of that are required by regulations. These mandated safety attributes consist of Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Monitor, Electronic Stability Control, and Backup Cameras. All-new vehicles will certainly have that modern technology and furthermore, the NHTSA suggests these Vehicle Driver Assistance Technologies:

Forward Collision Warning

This feature spots a potential crash and gives the motorist a warning.

Automatic Emergency Situation Braking

This tech immediately uses the brakes when a forward crash is imminent.

Lane Departure Warning

This system keeps track of lane markings and cautions the vehicle driver if they accidentally leave their lane.

Rear Cam

While currently standard on many brand-new automobiles, adding a video camera to older automobiles is suggested.

This list shouldn’t be taken as a complete checklist of safety functions, there will constantly be many different and new modern technologies that will help keep you safer.
