General Motors has introduced two new safety methods that can be used in modern day cars, according to recent news sources. These are an alert system used in the event of a crash, which is camera based, while other system is an airbag that can inflate between front seats and protect the driver and the person sitting next to him or her.
The system that is for crash alert is supported with a camera that helps to track the proximity of a vehicle and also informs a driver with the help of a beep when he is at a risk while driving. There is a light on the dashboard that changes color to indicate different dangers. For example, an orange light indicates that the car is drifting while a red light shows that the car is tailgating.
This system has been launched in exhibitions and reportedly costs only $295. GM expects that many will purchase the system due to its affordability.
As a Los Angeles car accident lawyer, I’m glad to see that car manufacturers are making steps toward safer cars in regards to technology. As a personal injury lawyer, I know that these changes will help not only the drivers of the car with the features, but also the other drivers on the road, as well as pedestrians and cyclists.
