Vehicle safety has been of top priority in recent years as the number of car accident deaths have continued to rise. Some blame innovations in technology while others simply blame inexperienced drivers. Regardless of who or what may be at fault, steps were taken to make the roads safer. Car companies worldwide have created technological innovations of their own that have made and continue to make vehicles smarter and safer than ever. Join us as we explore 3 new innovations that have had the greatest impact on vehicle safety.

Lane-Keep Assist

This feature alerts you when you are drifting out of your lane using sensors located on the exterior of the vehicle. Many car companies have implemented this feature as only a warning but others have taken it to the next level. Some vehicles have this feature set to when it senses you drifting into another lane, it will take over the steering wheel and veer you back into your lane. This is most useful on highways where drivers tend to get drowsy during long commutes.

Collision Warning System

The collision warning system is very similar to lane keep assist in the sense that it also uses sensors. They are generally located in the bumper of the vehicle to warn you if you are getting too close to a vehicle, or if -- depending on your speed and distance -- you are about to collide with a vehicle. This technology has been taken a step further by certain car companies where your car will stop itself if you do not react to the alert in time.

Active Park Assist

While this will not keep you from drifting into oncoming traffic or slamming into the car ahead of you, it is a neat way to avoid the common fender bender. When activated, this feature will take full control of and parallel park your vehicle. This is perfect for the less-experienced driver and the driver that is not used to driving in areas where parallel parking is the only option.
