Four Essential Automobile Safety Functions for 2020

You Should Know These Car Safety Features

The sheer number of automobiles on the road today makes an accident inescapable, so understanding which vehicle safety technology you must have ends up being vital. We’ve gone from the days of optional seatbelts to mandatory airbags, traction control, and tire pressure monitoring systems in nearly all new cars on the market. The list of optional safety options that’s now offered on the majority of vehicles is astonishing, and we’re working hard to ensure that your Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is the safest one yet.


Just How Are Vehicle Safety Ratings Calculated?

Currently, the NHTSA rates cars on a 5-Star scale based upon their performance in 3 specific crash tests: Front Collisions, Side Collisions, and Rollover Crashes. While collisions can occur in many situations these sorts of mishaps are the most typical, and based on the research of these mishaps, the appropriate safety gadgets are implemented in an automobile; so let’s take a glimpse at each scenario:


Front Accident Scenario

This is when two cars are traveling in opposite directions and hit each other in a head-on accident, or when a car loses control and strikes an object (like a tree, utility post, or a structure) in a head-on collision.


Side Accident Scenario

The most common side accident situation is when one car fails to yield to a stop sign or traffic signal and strikes the other vehicle on the side. This is generally referred to as a t-bone, as the cars create a ‘T’ shape when they collide. One more type of side collision is when an automobile loses control and slides sideways into a barrier like an utility post or tree.


Rollover Situation

This scenario is when you lose control of your vehicle and it rolls over. A rollover can be triggered by losing control of your automobile or a mix of extreme maneuvers such as fast, high-speed turns to avoid an obstacle.


Which Car Safety Features are Required by Law?

Regardless of all of the emerging car safety technologies, there are only a few that are required by law. These mandated safety attributes consist of Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Monitor, Electronic Stability Control, and Backup Cameras. All-new automobiles will have that modern technology and additionally, the NHTSA suggests the following Driver Assistance Technologies:


Forward Collision Warning

This function discovers a potential accident and signals the motorist a warning.


Automatic Emergency Situation Braking

This tech instantly uses the brakes when a forward collision is imminent.


Lane Departure Warning

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


Back-up Camera

While now standard on many brand-new vehicles, adding a rear video camera to older vehicles is recommended.

This list shouldn’t be interpreted as an extensive checklist of safety functions, there will always be many different and new technologies that will help keep you safer.

My vehicle had a lot of initial repairs plus some recall repairs/replacements. The Bob Howard Tech took care of them all. The staff was also very nice & gave me a loan vehicle to use until my Jeep was done being fixed.
