The car industry is growing rapidly and so are the available safety features
and technologies. But, can this be a problem for new car buyers? Research
shows that many persons have voiced their confusion and overwhelming feelings
regarding the massive amounts of safety technologies that are now available
Before, only high-end, more expensive models came with adaptive cruise
control, tire pressure sensors, and rear-view cameras.
Now, even base models of less expensive car brands have incorporated some
of the following features:
- Lane change monitors
- Blind spot monitors
- Drowsiness alerts
- Self-parking technologies
How Can These Safety Feature Pose Dangers?
Members of the National Safety Council believe that although these features
are designed to help drivers navigate and prevent drivers from being harmed
in vehicle collisions, they can also create serious car accidents if drivers
panic when unknown safety features activate.
Results from a study concluded roughly 40% of people reported their cars,
trucks, or SUVs have behaved in unexpected ways at least one time. Many
of the reporting drivers did not understand how adaptive cruise control
worked even though that specific type of technology has been available
in many vehicles for over a decade.
Additionally, research shows that the education provided in driving schools
is about 15 years behind the latest vehicle technologies. This means that
people are not receiving the instructions they need to operate their vehicle
in safe and appropriate manners.
