Investing in a newer model of the car may help keep you out of the hospital and the auto body shop. Newer models tend to have better anti-crash technology, such as the systems discussed in this featured video. When you watch it, you’ll see a demonstration of how high-tech cars can help prevent collisions.
Forward collision warnings and autonomous braking systems both work by constantly scanning the traffic using sensors that assess distance and the relative speed between vehicles. Based on this information, drivers can receive multiple warnings of the imminent risk of a crash. Some systems automatically brake the car if the driver doesn’t respond in time.
