4 Important Automobile Safety Options for 2020

You Should Know These Car Safety Features

The large number of cars and trucks on the road these days makes an accident unavoidable, so understanding which car safety tech you should have becomes important. We have gone from the days of optional seat belts to standard air bags, traction control, and tire pressure monitoring systems in almost all brand-new cars and trucks on the market. The list of optional safety options that’s now available on many cars is staggering, and we’re working hard to ensure that your new Mercedes-Benz is the most secure one yet.


Vehicle Safety Ratings are Calculated How?

Presently, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration judges automobiles on a 5-Star range based on their performance in 3 particular collision tests: Front Crashes, Side Crashes, and Rollover Crashes. While collisions can take place in various scenarios these kinds of mishaps are the most common, and based upon the study of these crashes, the necessary safety devices are installed in a vehicle; so let’s take a peek at each situation:


Front Collision Scenario

This is when two vehicles are going in opposite directions and hit each other in a head-on collision, or when a car loses control and strikes a thing (like a tree, utility post, or a structure) in a head-on accident.


Side Accident Situation

One of the most common side collision situations is when one vehicle does not stop at a stop sign or traffic control lights and strikes the other vehicle on the side. This is generally referred to as a t-bone, as the vehicles create a ‘T’ form when they crash. Another sort of side collision is when an automobile loses control and slides sideways into an obstacle like an utility pole or tree.


Rollover Scenario

This scenario is when you lose control of your car and it flips over. A rollover can be activated by losing control of your vehicle or a combination of extreme maneuvers such as quick, high-speed turning to miss an obstacle.


What Automobile Safety Features are Required by Law?

In spite of all of the emerging vehicle safety options, there are only a few that are required by federal law. These mandated safety attributes include Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Monitor, Electronic Stability Control, and Back-up Cameras. All-new cars and trucks will certainly have that technology and additionally, the NHTSA suggests the following Motorist Assistance Technologies:


Forward Crash Warning

This technology identifies a potential collision and gives the driver a warning.


Automatic Emergency Situation Braking

This technology automatically applies the brakes when a forward crash is imminent.


Lane Departure Alert

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


Backup Cam

While currently standard on many brand-new vehicles, adding a cam to older vehicles is recommended.

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