Latest vehicle safety features to consider when buying a new car

On Behalf of | Jun 27, 2024 | Motor Vehicle Accidents

When selecting a new vehicle, prioritizing safety features can protect yourself and your family. As New Jersey has the busiest roads, the latest vehicles must be equipped with advanced technologies, as they help prevent accidents and minimize injuries. Understanding the latest safety features in modern vehicles can assure safety in the long run.

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)

ADAS is a suite of safety technologies that help drivers avoid collisions. These systems include Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Lane Keeping Assist (LKA).

You can also look for Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) to ensure there is a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.

Blind spot detection

Blind Spot Detection uses sensors to monitor areas around your vehicle that are difficult to see. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, the system alerts you with visual or audible signals. It can prevent side collisions during lane changes.

Rearview cameras and parking sensors

Rearview cameras provide a view of the area behind your vehicle, reducing the risk of backover car accidents. Parking sensors detect obstacles while parking and emit warnings to prevent minor collisions.

Electronic stability control (ESC)

ESC helps maintain control of your vehicle during skids or slippery conditions. It can automatically apply brakes to individual wheels. This feature is particularly beneficial on the state’s icy winter roads.

Tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)

TPMS alerts you when tire pressure is too low. It can reduce the risk of tire blowouts and improve overall vehicle handling.

Prioritizing the latest vehicle safety features can ensure your family’s safety on busy roads. By selecting advanced features, you can significantly reduce the risk of accidents.
