Getting Ready to Drive
Our teenage son is getting ready to drive and we are equally excited and nervous, as most parents are during this time. We are learning that car safety is not just about teaching our son how to be a safe driver, but also learning about the safety features that newer vehicles now have.
Our main vehicle is a 2016 model with some of these new safety features. When my old car finally dies (it’s a 2006 model year and 14 years old!), I’m looking at a 2019 car and my top three must-have safety features are the backup camera, lane assist, and blind-spot monitoring.
It’s important for our son to learn to drive both cars so he understands vehicles with and without these new safety features. But when he’s finally on the road, it’s peace of mind knowing that the extra safety features will keep him safe and everyone around him!
National Safety Survey by Erie Insurance
Over the last few years and with the thanks of advanced engineering, there are so many more car safety features now available. But did you know that many drivers disable these safety features? These advanced safety features only work if they are turned on and the drivers use them!
Erie Insurance cares about the safety of customers and all drivers, so they commissioned a national survey to draw attention to the safety features available in today’s cars and to encourage drivers to take advantage of them.
According to a national survey by Erie Insurance, drivers are intentionally turning OFF these safety features such as:
- 30% adaptive cruise control
- 17% emergency braking
- 11% forward-collision warning
- 23% lane assist.
