Rear-End Car Accident

According to an article published by Business Finance News, 20 vehicle manufacturers have agreed to make automatic braking systems a new standard for their vehicles by September 2022. The United States Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 20 automakers that agreed, which also make up 99% of auto sales in the US, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety confirmed this statement on Thursday, March 17.

How Will These Automatic Braking Systems Keep Drivers Safe?

The automatic braking system is designed to stop a vehicle if a driver does not apply the brakes or does not apply enough pressure to the brakes to prevent an accident. According to statistics, these auto-emergency braking systems will help reduce the number of injuries and fatalities that occur as a result of vehicle collisions. Sources state that the number of crashes which occur every year will drop as much as 20%, which means more than one million car accidents can be prevented annually.

Which Car Manufacturers Have Agreed to this New Standard?

Because these new systems have the potential to prevent numerous types of car accidents on a day-to-day basis, many carmakers have decided to implement this new standard in the vehicle production system.

Some of the manufacturers implementing automatic braking systems include:

  • BMW
  • Audi
  • Porsche
  • Volkswagen AG

  • Toyota Motor
