Your Car’s Newest Safety Feature: An Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) System
NHTSA Secretary Announces Plan for Future Vehicle Models
The Transportation Secretary recently announced a plan that includes adding two new Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) systems to the list of recommended advanced safety features to be included in new car models in the future. This is the most recent step in over 50 years of safety innovations that are estimated to have saved over 600,000 lives, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Rear End Collisions Are Commonplace
Per the NHTSA’s data, 33% of all reported car accidents involve a rear-end collision with another vehicle. NHTSA’s research also shows that, in rear-end collisions, many of the drivers either did not fully apply their brakes or they didn’t apply them at all prior to the crash. Automatic Emergency Braking systems can, as the name implies, automatically apply the brakes or assist the driver in fully braking, to (hopefully) avoid an accident.
