Automobile Safety Functions for 2020

You Should Know These Car Safety Features

The sheer amount of automobiles on the road these days makes a mishap not avoidable, so knowing which automobile safety options you must have ends up being essential. We’ve gone from the days of optional seat belts to mandatory air bags, traction control, as well as tire pressure monitoring systems in almost all brand-new vehicles on the market. The checklist of optional safety technology that’s now readily available on a lot of cars and trucks is incredible, and we’re working hard to make certain that your brand-new BMW is the best one yet.


Car Safety Ratings are Calculated How?

Currently, the NHTSA rates automobiles on a 5-Star range based upon their performance in 3 specific accident scenarios: Front Crashes, Side Crashes, and Rollover Crashes. While collisions can take place in various circumstances these sorts of mishaps are the most typical, and based upon the study of these accidents, the appropriate safety technologies are installed in an automobile; so let’s take a quick look at each situation:


Front Accident Scenario

This is when two vehicles are traveling in opposing directions and strike each other in a head-on collision, or when an automobile loses control and strikes a thing (like a tree, utility pole, or a building) in a head-on accident.


Side Accident Scenario

One of the most typical side crash scenarios is when one automobile fails to yield to a stop sign or traffic control signals and strikes the other vehicle on the side. This is commonly described as a t-bone, as the cars create a ‘T’ form when they collide. An additional kind of side crash is when an automobile loses control and slides sideways right into a barrier like an energy pole or tree.


Rollover Scenario

This scenario is when you lose control of your automobile and it flips over. A rollover can be triggered by losing control of your car or a combination of serious maneuvers such as fast, high-speed turns to avoid a barrier.


Some Car Safety Features are Required by Law, Which Ones Are They?

Regardless of all of the emerging vehicle safety technologies, there are just a couple of that are required by law. These mandated safety options include Seatbelts, Airbags, LATCH child safety seat system, Tire-Pressure Display, Electronic Stability Control, and Back-up Cameras. Brand new cars will have that technology and furthermore, the NHTSA recommends the following Motorist Assistance Technologies:


Forward Accident Warning

This function identifies a potential accident and signals the driver a warning.


Automatic Emergency Situation Braking

This technology immediately uses the brakes when a forward crash is looming.


Lane Departure Alert

This system keeps track of lane markings and warns the motorist if they accidentally leave their lane.


Backup Camera

While now mandatory on a lot of new cars, adding a rear-view electronic camera to older automobiles is recommended.

This list shouldn’t be interpreted as an extensive list of safety technologies, there will constantly be many numerous and emerging tech that will help keep you much safer.

BMW of Tulsa recently serviced my Z4. My service technician, Cody, offered the shuttle so I did not have to wait, called me and arranged to have me picked up at my home when the car was ready. The car was washed and vacuumed. I am very pleased with their professionalism.
