Using technology to reduce the number of auto accidents

There are many reasons why car crashes happen, and in many cases, these types of incidents are the result of human error and preventable mistakes. Educating drivers and increasing awareness about certain risks can help, but ultimately, Texas drivers are responsible for the choices they make behind the wheel. There are some new technological advances that can make the roads safer for everyone and hopefully reduce the number of auto accidents.

Statistics indicate that there are over six million car accidents in the United States every year. In these incidents, approximately three million people suffer injuries, and around 90 people die each day. Car accidents are a serious public safety threat, which is why certain types of technology can be useful. One advance that may help is automatic braking, which will stop a car if there are hazards ahead and the driver is not attempting to stop.

Electronic stability control can lower the chance that a vehicle will roll over in a collision, and it can also help reduce the chance of an accident in the first place, both by 50%. Lane departure systems are now in many vehicles, and this technology is able to warn a driver when he or she is swerving or crosses the line. These are only a few examples of how technology is making Texas roads safer.

Regardless of what features may come in a car, drivers are still responsible for any negligent or reckless choices they make if they cause an accident. Victims of auto accidents may have the right to seek compensation through a personal injury claim. This allows a person to seek what he or she needs for a full and fair recovery.
