Could new technologies lead to fewer fatal car accidents?

Car accidents occur each and every day and are often due to distracted driving. These crashes can result in serious--even fatal--injuries. Most people would probably agree that anything that could make our nation's roads safer and reduce the number of car accidents is a good idea. It is possible that several new car safety technologies could help in that area. A car internet Sales Manager accumulated a list of what he believes are the top five new technologies.

The first is pedestrian detection. This system immediately applies the breaks to stop a car after first issuing an alert, when a pedestrian or bicyclist enters the vehicle's path. It is currently only offered on some Volvos.

The next new car safety technology is hydrophobic windows. These windows could be particularly appealing in climates where it often rains as they are designed to "shed water like a duck." To get the technology, check certain KIA models.

Etune could be appealing to many drives as the voice command system makes it possible for the driver to obtain things such as directions, without ever taking his or her hands from the steering wheel.

Obtaining proper tire pressure is easy for some who drive Nissans. Certain models have been equipped with the Easy fill tire alert system. Whether the tires are over or under filled will be communicated via a certain number of honks.

Last, lane-keep assist helps some drivers know that they need to take actions to get back into their own lane.

While these technologies may reduce the number of fatal crashes that occur on roads throughout the nation, it is unlikely that it will eradicate the issue completely. Some individuals may decide to pursue a personal injury case against those who cause the incident.
