Study: Some Advanced Auto Technologies Led to Sharp Declines in Car Accidents

The Detroit News reports that, according to a study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, “advanced auto technologies” like forward-collision avoidance systems, adaptive headlights, and technology that allows cars to brake automatically, “result in sharp drops in car crashes.” The Detroit News adds that the “study by the industry-funded group also found that lane-departure warning systems appear to hurt, rather than help — though it’s not clear why. Other systems, such as blind-spot detection and park assist, aren’t showing clear impacts on crash patterns yet.”

Bloomberg News reports that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said yesterday that they have “been studying forward-collision warning and autonomous braking systems since 2010.” NHTSA Administrator David Strickland said that last year that “his top priority is preventing crashes. The agency has spent much of its first three decades trying to make cars safer.” Also reporting this was ABC World News.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
