Whether you’re shopping for a used or new vehicle, it’s likely that one of your top priorities is the safety of that car. Safety technology serves many features from the simple seat belt that restrains you inside and decreases your risk of being ejected from the car. Too much more advanced technology could prevent accidents altogether.
Cars today are safer than ever thanks to better technology and more consistent build quality. The most recent version of technological safety features has been designed to avoid an accident before it ever happens.
The Partnership for Analytics Research and Traffic Safety recently completed a study finding that these active safety features dramatically reduce the risks of car accidents and resulting injuries. In fact, active safety technologies can reduce your crash risk by as much as 49%. Risks of injuries are reduced by 53%, and your chances of a critical crash are reduced by 42%.
The study also identified some other important components of safety features, such as that these technologies work in all circumstances regardless of varying weather conditions.
