Rear-End Crashes Expected To Plummet In 2022!

By  | 

Safety standards in cars are very different to how they were 10 years ago. Today, more and more cars are adopting semi-autonomous technology that is utilized to make driving safer. Come 2022, 99% of vehicles being sold will feature automatic emergency braking as a standard feature.

This was confirmed earlier today after 20 different carmakers agreed on a pact to offer automatic emergency braking on every car as a mandatory feature by 2022. The brands involved includes Volvo, Audi, BMW, Ford, Mazda, Maserati, Toyota, Tesla, Subaru, Porsche, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Fiat-Chrysler, Jaguar Land Rover, Volkswagen, Honda, Hyundai and General Motors.

NHTSA revealed that the move will aid in preventing about 28,000 crashes and 12,000 injuries upon its implementation. The automatic emergency braking feature will be utilized mostly to prevent or soften rear-ended collisions. Do you welcome this change?
