The auto defects experts at Bisnar | Chase Personal Injury Attorneys, LLP
( today highlight the top five advanced car safety
features they believe help reduce the number of catastrophic personal injuries
and deaths among drivers and pedestrians. The announcement comes during the
Los Angeles Auto Show, where automakers are on-hand to feature the latest and
greatest in safety features among this year’s new model introductions.

“It’s exciting to see advancements in safety components that help protect
vehicle occupants and pedestrians from severe personal injuries and death,”
said Brian Chase, 19-year auto defects expert and partner at Bisnar | Chase.
“While the industry certainly has come a long way, it still has a long way to
go. Deadly auto defects persist – even in brand new models – like defective
seat backs, insufficient roof strength and malfunctioning seat belts to name a
few. We welcome any car safety advancements that rely on the latest in
technology to keep people safe behind the wheel and on the road.”

Following are the Bisnar | Chase Top Five Advanced Car Safety Features

1) Collision Avoidance Systems
Collision avoidance systems use sensors to detect and alert drivers to dangers
in the road with the use of caution lights or alarms, and in some cases, by
reducing speed or by providing braking assistance. The most effective are
forward collision warning systems that alert drivers to objects in the road

2) Emergency Brake Assist
Emergency Brake Assist takes over to provide maximum braking power for drivers
during a sudden stop. The system detects the vehicle’s speed and automatically
applies the brake with the greatest force required to stop the car in an
emergency braking situation.

3) Adaptive Headlights
Different from standard headlights that shine straight ahead, adaptive
headlights adjust around corners to help drivers see better at night. Adaptive
headlights detect the vehicle’s steering and adjust accordingly, turning right
when the car turns right and left when the car turns left.

4) Pedestrian Airbags
The new Volvo V40, introduced this year, features exterior airbags designed to
help prevent pedestrians from getting injured by a moving car. The car’s
sensors can detect a pedestrian’s legs at the front of the car and can
immediately deploy a U-shaped airbag near the windshield, slightly lifting the
hood and acting as a cushion during impact.

5) Adaptive Cruise Control
Similar to standard cruise control, Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a car’s
pre-set speed. However, Adaptive Cruise Control uses sensors to adjust speed
to ensure a safe distance between your car and the vehicle in front of you.
When the road is clear, the system adjusts back to the speed at which you
originally set it.
