Certain in-car features could reduce the number of auto accidents

Human error is to blame for most auto accidents. From speeding to distraction, Texas drivers can make various mistakes that can lead to serious or fatal auto accidents. Automakers are trying to improve auto safety and reduce the number of accidents by including certain types of features in newer vehicles. There is evidence that some of these safety features could go a long way in making the roads safer for everyone. 

One way that car features can help improve safety is by allowing the driver to see better and in more directions. Many newer cars come with back-up cameras, which allow the person behind the wheel to see what's behind the vehicle, whether it's a person, a stationary object or another vehicle. Some vehicles even have camera features that allow the driver to see in multiple directions.

Even one second of distraction or loss of visibility can result in serious consequences. In fact, some groups report that as many as 50 children per week are involved in accidents that occurred because a vehicle ran over or backed over them. For people who have older vehicles, it is possible to purchase a camera and have it installed.

Despite cameras and other safety features, Texas drivers still make mistakes that often lead to preventable auto accidents. When a person suffers serious injury due to the actions of another person, he or she has the right to seek compensation through a personal injury claim. While this cannot undo what already happened, it can help an accident victim, or the surviving family of someone killed in a crash, recover documented monetary damages and move forward.
