4 Essential Car Safety Features for 2020

Car Safety Features You Should Know

The large number of automobiles on the road these days makes a crash not avoidable, so knowing which automobile safety tech you must have ends up being crucial. We have gone from the days of optional seat belts to mandatory airbags, traction control, and tire pressure monitoring systems in virtually all new vehicles on the marketplace. The list of optional safety tech that’s currently available on the majority of cars and trucks is staggering, and we’re working hard to ensure that your brand-new Mercedes-Benz is the best one yet.


How Are Automobile Safety Ratings Calculated?

Currently, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration judges automobiles on a 5-Star scale based on their effectiveness in 3 specific accident scenarios: Front Crashes, Side Collisions, and Rollover Crashes. While crashes can take place in various situations these types of crashes are the most common, and based upon the research of these mishaps, the necessary safety tools are installed in a vehicle; so let’s take a glance at each circumstances:


Front Crash Scenario

This is when two cars are driving in opposing directions and hit each other in a head-on collision, or when an automobile loses control and strikes an object (like a tree, energy post, or a building) in a head-on collision.


Side Collision Scenario

One of the most typical side collision situations is when one car does not stop at a stop sign or traffic signal and strikes the other vehicle on the side. This is commonly referred to as a t-bone, as the automobiles develop a ‘T’ form when they collide. One more kind of side collision is when an automobile loses control and slides sideways right into an obstacle like an energy post or tree.


Rollover Situation

This situation is when you lose control of your car and it rolls over. A rollover can be activated by losing control of your car or a mix of severe maneuvers such as quick, high-speed turns to stay clear of an obstacle.


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

Regardless of every one of the arising automobile safety features, there are just a few that are required by law. These mandated safety attributes include Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Display, Electronic Stability Control, and Backup Cameras. Brand new automobiles will certainly have that tech and furthermore, the NHTSA advises these Vehicle Driver Assistance Technologies:


Forward Accident Warning

This function finds a possible accident and signals the motorist a warning.


Automatic Emergency Brakes

This modern technology automatically uses the brakes when a forward accident is imminent.


Lane Departure Alert

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


Rear Cam

While now mandatory on a lot of new automobiles, adding a rear-view electronic camera to older cars is advised.

This list shouldn’t be interpreted as an exhaustive list of safety features, there will constantly be many different and new tech that will help keep you safer.
