A new study released by MIT and the Hartford Financial Services Group has revealed several advances in automotive safety technology that may be of particular interest to seniors. Drivers in our area may find some of the devices listed below to be helpful in avoiding a car accident in Florida.

  1. Voice Command Technology: Hands-free access to various car features that allow drivers to keep their attention on the road.
  2. Emergency Response: Allows drivers who have been injured or are experiencing a medical emergency to request assistance from within their vehicle.
  3. Lane Departure Warnings: An advanced warning system that monitors a vehicle’s position and alerts drivers if their vehicle wanders.
  4. Blind Spot Warnings: Informs drivers with a limited range of motion of objects in their blind spot while parking or changing lanes with this new warning system.
  5. Smart Headlights: Reduces glare and maintains night vision by adjusting the brightness of the light based on a vehicle’s proximity to other traffic.
  6. Parking Assistance Systems: Provides parking assistance by warning drivers of obstacles or parking automatically.

Unfortunately, even the safest drivers in our area may find themselves in need of a Tampa car accident attorney after being seriously injured in an auto accident through no fault of their own.
