What are advanced vehicular safety systems?

Even the safest California drivers can use a bit of assistance. Fortunately, many vehicles today employ advanced safety systems, which play a more active role in keeping drivers safe and secure on the road. Additionally, these features range in functionality, which is crucial for ensuring comprehensive protection in the event of a crash.

Consumer Reports offers a list of key safety features, many of which are capable of either preventing crashes from occurring or lessening the injurious effects. Blind spots are particularly problematic, and blind spot warning systems offer signals when another vehicle is close to yours. Signals are usually provided audibly or visually, and supplementary indications can occur when the driver uses the turn signal.

There is also the option of adaptive cruise control. This feature is intended to keep your vehicle traveling a safe distance from other vehicles at all times. This is usually accomplished via things like cameras, radar, or even lasers that determine the presence of other vehicles. In some cases a combination these devices will be used to make certain you’re maintaining the proper distance from other vehicles.

When it comes to hazards in the rear of the vehicle, rear automatic emergency braking can be extremely beneficial. Often used in combination with rear warning systems (which serve to alert drivers when an object is close to their vehicle), rear automatic emergency braking will stop your vehicle when sensors detect the presence of a potential hazard. Some vehicles even offer lane keeping assist capability, which can both detect when a vehicle has breached the lane markings and make corrective steering maneuvers.
