Top 10 Car Safety Features by San Antonio, Texas and Houston, Texas Automotive Defect Lawyer

Over the past 20 years, cars have become increasingly safer.  Highway fatalities and injuries have fallen.  Advanced safety features in vehicles have become available to average Americans.  And, importantly, there does not seem to be an end in sight to the pace at which vehicles are becoming safer.  The following is a list, in no particular order, of some of the most important advances in automotive safety over the past 20 years:

  1. Airbags;
  2. Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems;
  3. Rearview Cameras/Backup Sensors;
  4. Rollover Activated Side-Curtain Airbags and Seatbelt Pre-Tensioners;
  5. Rollover Mitigation/Electronic Stability Control;
  6. Increased Roof Strength;
  7. Automatic Braking Systems;
  8. Blind Spot Monitoring;
  9. Anti-Lock Brakes; and
  10. Traction Control

Many important safety features have been excluded such as seatbelts, tempered glass, etc that have been around a very long time.  The list includes features that will lead to a slow and steady decline of traffic fatalities and injuries over the coming years.  If you have been injured or lost a loved as the result of a defective vehicle or vehicle that was not crashworthy, call the Automotive Defect Injury Lawyer at Hill Law Firm today.
