Driving error increasingly reduced by technology
Recently, many manufacturers have been promoting collision avoidance systems. When approaching an object, a car fitted with a collision avoidance system will automatically brake if the driver fails to. Experts believe that if this system was fitted to all vehicles on the road today the number of accidents would fall significantly.
Other recent developments have included ‘lane departure warning’ systems and ‘blind spot monitoring’ which provide warnings to drivers who stray out of their lane/ have objects in a blind spot.
Over the past decade, there has been an explosion in the number of new safety devices. So many manufacturers have released new safety features that Euro-NCAP has developed a measure of comparison. ‘Euro-NCAP Advanced’ recognises manufacturers who promote technology that has been scientifically proven to advance safety.
Unfortunately engineers have not yet been able to fully negate human error and many people in England and Wales suffer injury as a result of an accident on the road. Individuals who have suffered injury through no fault of their own are often entitled to make a car accident claim.
