Safer Driving With Technology

New technologies in vehicles can keep people driving safer, for longer.

A Campaign for All Drivers – Novice or Experienced

Hundreds of millions of cars on the roads have safety technologies – new and old – that help reduce the risk of crashes and deaths. But even the most advanced safety feature cannot replace a safe, focused driver in the car.

The National Safety Council, in partnership with the University of Iowa Public Policy Center, is educating the public on how to best interact with these safety features to have better, safer driving experiences. Ultimately, you are your car's best safety feature.

MyCarDoesWhat.org uses videos, graphics, animation, social media and other resources to educate the public on the ever-changing world of car safety features. The campaign provides quick and easy-to-use information for any driver, no matter what kind of car they have or how old it is.

The MyCarDoesWhat.org website helps visitors answer questions about their car's features. Following are just of few of the types of questions that will be answered:

  • How do I find out what an icon or warning means?
  • How do I use these features the way they were intended?
  • What other types of features are out there similar to the ones I like?
  • What features should my car have, and what features will be mandated in the future?
