More new vehicles to offer advanced safety technology

Despite increasing awareness about methods to reduce car accidents, they continue to occur -- putting innocent people at risk of injury. In response to this problem, auto manufacturers are turning to technology as a solution. Automatic emergency braking is just one example of safety technology that can help reduce accidents.

According to Consumer Reports, auto manufacturers are reportedly on track to ensure that automatic braking technology will appear in nearly all new vehicles by the year 2022. This technology is not new. Between Sept. 2017 and Aug. 2018, these braking systems were installed in about half of the new cars released to the American market. The year before, approximately one-third of new cars came with automatic braking.

At this time, Toyota leads the pack in making this technology standard equipment. Nearly all of their new vehicles have automatic braking. Nissan takes second place in this goal of making the technology standard. General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Mitsubishi have not made the technology standard on any of their 2019 vehicles.

Pennsylvania motor vehicle accidents often result in severe injury or even death. Any effort to reduce these crashes and injuries should be applauded. Ordinary citizens can do their part to raise awareness by holding responsible parties legally accountable for any negligence that contributed to the crash.

Taking legal action can also help show automakers that there is a real need for automatic emergency braking and other safety technologies. Perhaps this could lead to standard installation of advanced safety systems in all new motor vehicles that are sold here in the U.S.
