Advanced Driver Assistance Technology in New Cars Can Keep You Safer on the Road

by | Aug 26, 2022 | Car Safety, Industry-Wide Topics

Car travel with your family has changed dramatically since the introduction of video screens and computer connections. Each member of the family can access their favorite tech and entertain themselves while travelling in the car. In fact, new cars have so many interactive technologies that it can seem overwhelming. This amazing new tech helps you answer your cell phone, play your favorite music, select, and follow the best route to your destination and much more. Although convenient and fun to operate, managing all this innovative technology from behind the wheel of your car can be distracting. Happily, by activating the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) in your car you can minimize the potential safety risks of these distractions . The ADAS systems requires time to understand and master but it’s well worth the time and effort. For example, when activated the ADAS system in your car will warn you if you drift out of a lane and monitor your blind spot. Just remember that while ADAS does a lot to keep you safe, it does NOT drive for you (yet)!

Even with access to the Internet, games and steaming services, children can still find fun in old school auto travel. Recently, my granddaughter surprised me when she told me she had seen license tags from all 50 states. What’s your family’s favorite pastime when you’re on a long road trip?
