The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website is a good resource to research automobile crash avoidance features by make and model of the vehicle. The most common new technologies available include forward collision warning, autobrake, lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, adaptive headlights and blind spot detection.
With the number of bicycle and pedestrian involved car crashes rising exponentially with the increasing number of people who choose to walk and bike to work or for exercise, these new technologies come none too soon to help avoid serious personal injuries and death. Across the nation, these unfortunate tragedies are increasing, and the automobile industry is stepping up to help make our roads a safer place.
