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