Most of us drive a car or truck every day. It is how we get around. Modern cars come with many safety features such as collision avoidance, back up cameras, and lane correction. However, your car might not be be as safe as you think. In this video, you will learn why.
Auto Body collisions can be dangerous. Two cars colliding at high speeds are normally not going to end well. Many vehicles have safety ratings that are handed out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, these standards have not been changed in a long time. In fact, many countries have updated their standards and take a more holistic approach to safety. This includes pedestrian safety as well.
Currently, a crash dummy is used to test the force applied to different parts of the body in different scenarios. For example, they test the force applied in head-on collisions, side collisions, and roll overs. This data is then compiled and represented by a single number. The safety rating as represented by starts ranging from one to five. However, this doesn’t take into account nearly enough of the factors that exist in a modern driving environment. Until our approach is updated, we are likely missing out on important aspects of driver safety.
