Safety on the road: old cars vs. new ones


When it comes to talk about cars, any driver would say their own car is the best. The truth is that (apart of a good and easy to understand interest and personal feeling to the car model you own) most modern vehicles are jam packed with safety features.

This means that automotive brands tend to focus on safety features like airbags (the 2014 Chevrolet Spark has 10 installed airbags!), lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring that are both tools to prevent car accidents.

More safety features, more car accidents

However, according to the data from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) it seems that safer vehicles not always correspond to a safer driving experience on the road. In fact, the number of car accidents is increasing.

With so many safety features one would expect the opposite trend, so why is this possible?

The reason is that most drivers feel safe and even too self confident when driving a modern vehicle featuring so many safety tools. This makes decrease their attention level while driving and in some extreme cases this leads to an irresponsible attitude.

What to do in case of emergency

The worrying data from the IIHS also explain why in the driving schools teachers tend to focus on the behavior drivers should have during an emergency situation.

In fact, not everybody can keep calm and understand what they should do. It’s also true that not all emergency are the same serious.

Emergency cases go from a lost car key to a car crash with injured or died people.

Let’s say that the first case is way more common and frequent than the other case. So, what should you do in case you realize you lost your car key? Imagine that you have an appointment or have to go to pick up your children at school and you have no one there to help you.           Lost Car Key
