4 Essential Car Safety Options for 2020

You Should Know These Car Safety Features

The sheer number of vehicles on the road today makes an accident unavoidable, so understanding which vehicle safety functions you ought to have becomes vital. We’ve gone from the days of optional seat belts to standard airbags, traction control, as well as tire pressure monitoring systems in practically all new cars on the market. The checklist of optional safety technology that’s currently available on a lot of automobiles is shocking, and we’re striving to make certain that your new Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is the safest one yet.


How Are Car Safety Ratings Calculated?

Currently, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration judges vehicles on a 5-Star range based upon their performance in 3 specific accident tests: Front Crashes, Side Crashes, and Rollover Collisions. While collisions can occur in various circumstances these sorts of accidents are the most usual, and based upon the research of these accidents, the appropriate safety gadgets are implemented in an automobile; so let’s take a peek at each circumstances:


Front Accident Scenario

This is when 2 automobiles are traveling in opposing directions and hit each other in a head-on crash, or when an automobile loses control and strikes an object (like a tree, utility pole, or a structure) in a head-on accident.


Side Collision Scenario

The most common side accident situation is when one car does not stop at a stop sign or traffic signal and strikes the other car on the side. This is commonly referred to as a t-bone, as the cars create a ‘T’ shape when they crash. One more kind of side crash is when a car loses control and slides sideways into a barrier like an energy pole or tree.


Rollover Situation

This scenario is when you lose control of your vehicle and it rolls over. A rollover can be caused by losing control of your vehicle or a combination of extreme maneuvers such as quick, high-speed turning to stay clear of a barrier.


Some Car Safety Features are Required by Law, Which Ones Are They?

Regardless of every one of the emerging automobile safety technologies, there are just a couple of that are required by federal law. These mandated safety options include Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Display, Electronic Stability Control, and Backup Cameras. All-new cars and trucks will have that modern technology and additionally, the NHTSA suggests these Driver Assistance Technologies:


Forward Collision Alert

This attribute spots a possible collision and gives the vehicle driver a warning.


Automatic Emergency Situation Braking

This modern technology instantly applies the brakes when a forward accident is looming.


Lane Departure Warning

This system keeps an eye on lane markings and warns the driver if they accidentally leave their lane.


Back-up Camera

While currently mandatory on a lot of brand-new cars and trucks, adding a rear camera to older cars and trucks is advised.

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