These Car Features Are Designed to Help Prevent Distracted Driving

Distracted drivers aren’t limited to those who text behind the wheel; as a matter of fact, a distracted driver can be the mother in front of you, yelling at her kids fighting in the back seat. Distracted drivers come in the form of those who are distracted by visual objects, cognitive distractions (taking your mind off what you are doing), or manual distractions (simply taking your hands off the wheel). So if you want to learn more about limiting yourself from these threats and avoiding becoming a distracted driver yourself, these are a few of the features to look for when purchasing a new car.

Hands free connectivity – 
Cars with Bluetooth and wi-fi allows you to connect hands free. Simply tell your console who you want to call or text; you can speak your text message rather than type. You can listen to voice mail, take and make calls, and use other features (such as climate control or changing the radio station) hands free. Although it is still a distraction for some, it is far less a problem than drivers going into their purse to find their phone, or scrolling through radio stations to find their favorite tunes.

Crash avoidance – 
Most new cars today come with some kind of crash avoidance system built in as a base feature. Autonomous braking systems, lane departure warnings, or other distracted or drowsy driver features, are all standard in many newer model cars today. No, they won’t help eliminate accidents 100% of the time; but, they have been proven to help greatly reduce accidents, and help otherwise distracted drivers, keep their head (and eyes) on the road, in order to avoid those distractions which were so prominent in years past.

Lane assist signals – 
From beeping or having a little orange light on your rear view mirror when there is an object in your blind spot, to beeping when there is an animal, child, or other obstruction (you can’t see) in a cross walk, these signals are truly exceptional at helping you avoid an accident. Not only do they help put eyes in the back of your head, or on the side of your head, they also serve to monitor the traffic on your sides and behind you, which you truly can’t see. Blind spot accidents were extremely common; since this feature has been added to cars, the amount of accidents in this category have greatly been reduced over the recent years for drivers using this monitor and safety feature.

Although we believe we are extremely careful behind the wheel, even the most mature and responsible driver is distracted every now and again. Many vehicle manufacturers have noticed this, and made many efforts to help reduce the accidents which take place on the road. If you are looking to become a safer driver, or simply want to prevent accidents because of other distracted drivers on the road, these are a few of the many built in features (or optional features) to look … Read More
