Automakers are continually making safety technology advancements.

Automobile manufacturers have developed today’s automobiles with greatly improved safety systems and many important safety features, making new vehicles safer than ever. Vehicle braking, stability and lighting have been improved far beyond the levels required by legislation, by a mixture of technical evolution and advanced technology, making cars more able to avoid accidents. Accident survivability has also been improved well ahead of legislation by designing cars to deform in a controlled way in frontal, side and rear impacts and by the addition of advanced restraint and airbag systems. Tomorrow’s safety technologies are in research and development and in some cases even on the production line today.
