4 Advanced Safety Features That Affect Auto Insurance Premiums, Boerne, Texas

Staying alert while driving is critical, but today’s vehicles offer a wealth of advanced safety features that didn’t exist just a few years ago. While you still have to pay attention and practice safe driving, modern accident avoidance systems can help prevent crashes and minimize impact if a collision does occur. Below are a few vital safety features that will keep you safe behind the wheel and might even lower your auto insurance premiums.

4 Safety Features to Look for in a New Car

1. Adaptive Cruise Control

Cruise control might make long drives more comfortable, but it can also lead to an accident if you take your eyes off the road. Adaptive cruise control solves this issue by using radar and other sensors to monitor the vehicle ahead of you and automatically keep a safe distance between the two cars.

2. Automatic Braking

Automatic braking technologies take the adaptive cruise control one step further by automatically applying the brake if you don’t respond to an obstacle in time. If you’ve fallen asleep at the wheel or don’t see the car in front of you slowing down, automatic braking can prevent rear-end collisions.

3. Lane Departure Warnings

This tool makes a warning sound if your vehicle starts drifting out of your lane. Some of the more advanced cars on the market will even correct the steering course automatically if you don’t act in time.

4. Backup Cameras

Almost every new car on the market features rear view cameras that are designed to help you avoid backing into an obstacle. Certain high-tech systems will even give you a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of your vehicle with warnings about any obstructions.
