Safety agency urges universal adoption of anti-crash technology

The National Transportation Safety Board recently renewed its calls for crash-avoidance systems to be required as a standard feature in all new cars nationwide. The federal safety regulator has issued the same recommendation several times in recent years, claiming that the measure could prevent thousands of crash-related injuries and fatalities every year.

Using technology to offset distracted driving

The anti-crash systems, which use cameras, sensors and wireless technologies to detect nearby traffic hazards, are expected to be particularly beneficial for preventing rear-end collisions, which account for nearly half of all two-vehicle car accidents in the United States. In a vast majority of rear-end crashes – 87 percent – driver distraction or inattention was a factor, according to data cited by the agency. The systems could also prove highly beneficial in preventing motorcycle accidents, which frequently occur when other drivers simply fail to notice motorcycles on the road.

Crash avoidance systems help offset the risk of distractions and inattention by alerting drivers to nearby hazards and even assisting in breaking or steering as necessary to avoid a crash. Federal crash data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that rear-end crashes result in about 500,000 injuries and 1,700 fatalities every year. The agency predicts that crash-avoidance technology could mitigate about 80 percent of those injuries and deaths.

Although the NTSB has been recommending for years that anti-crash systems be adopted universally for passenger and commercial vehicles nationwide, the technology came standard on less than one percent of passenger vehicle models sold in 2014 – just four vehicle models out of a total of 684. In a report released by the agency on June 8, 2015, NTSB Chairman Christopher A. Hart pointed out that “You don’t pay extra for your seatbelt,” going on to state that drivers should not be required to pay more for technology that can actually prevent crashes from occurring.
