4 Ways Technology is Making Cars Safer

You know how Superman always claims that, statistically, flying is the safest way to travel? As it turns out, that’s true–and due in large part to the likelihood (or lack thereof) that an airplane is going to crash into another one. Cars, on the other hand, lead to serious injury or death at a much higher rate. Now, of course, you can’t take a plane to your local grocery store–you’ll have to drive. So what are we doing to protect drivers every day?

The Evolution of Car Safety Features

These days, we think little of safety measures such as seat belts, mirrors, air bags, and (for those little ones) car seats or booster seats. But these are safety measures that have been added bit by bit over time, giving us much safer (albeit imperfect) driving experiences.

1. Phone-Safe features

Since the invention of the cell phone’s text messaging, people have been trying to text and drive at the same time. This, as we all know, is terribly dangerous. Finally, phone companies are pairing with automobile companies to either silence your cell phone while you’re driving, or else allow drivers to keep their eyes where they should be, on the road, as messages and calls go through a voice-activated built-in system.

2. Blind spot sensors

Every driver feels that sense of terror now and again when they go to change lanes and find out in the nick of time that there’s another car in your blind spot. Now, however, cars are coming out with sensors, connected to auditory or visual systems, that scan your blind spot for you, keeping you far safer.

3. Self-braking systems

One of my personal favorite new automotive safety features is the now-present self-braking system. If your car senses that there is an object or person in front of you and you aren’t braking hard enough, some new cars will stop for you, increasing the power to the brakes all by themselves.

4. Lane-Keep Assist

Sometimes through distractedness, tiredness, or just zoning out, drivers will begin to drift in their lanes, putting them dangerously close to other cars, medians, or anything else that stands outside of their lane. For this problem, the solution (at least thus far) is called Lane-Keep Assist, and it monitors the lane lines with sensors and alerts you if you are coming too close to danger.
