Safety is paramount while driving and begins with a well-running car. As technology advances, so do safety options. Stay in the know and be aware of safety features to add to your car when possible.
After 2017, it became standard for most cars to have a back-up camera. However, if your car doesn’t, you may be able to have one installed.
Back-up cameras are tremendously helpful in assisting drivers when they need to see what’s behind them. The old-fashioned method of simply looking over your shoulder is simply not enough when backing up.
Once you get used to the camera, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Control the Lift on Your Car
Cars have a lifting effect which stems from air circulating under the car. At fast speeds, traction can be lost, thus making it easier to lose control.
Reduce lift by adding a rear spoiler to your car. Not only will it reduce lift by deflecting air upward and creating a downforce at the top of the car which aids in keeping the car on the road, but they also look sporty and offer your vehicle greater aerodynamics.
Side skirts also offer sporty style and improved downforce on a car.
Collision Avoidance System
Want to be warned of a possible collision? This is exactly what a collision avoidance system can do.
Usually placed on the dashboard if not already integrated into your car, a collision avoidance system can detect possible problems on the road. It does this by sensing if the car drifts out of its lane or traffic suddenly comes to a stop.
The avoidance system is a quick and easy way to gain added protection.
The touchscreen display gives drivers the ability to have options right in front of them, rather than searching around for buttons and knobs to get things done.
For even more added safety, some screens offer a voice detection option, so the driver can easily speak commands. This way eyes are always on the road.
As you consider safety options to add to your car, be sure to speak with a mechanic to see what’s available and what will work best for your particular vehicle.
