My Car Does What

Back-Up Camera. Back-up cameras are probably one of my favorite safety features. With these amazing little cameras you can see objects directly behind you while backing up. Some cars even come with side-view and front-view cameras. However, you should always be aware of your surroundings and still look over your shoulder and in your mirrors as you back up. I love that these features are also available at night. Be sure you keep the camera lens clear of any debris so they can function properly.

Car Safety Features

Anti-Lock Braking System. Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are required by law now to be on all vehicles. ABS helps prevent your wheels from locking up in emergency situations by restoring traction to your tires.

Blind Spot Monitor. We’ve all done it… nearly changed lanes by glancing at our blind spot and not seeing that fast car flying up upon us. Blind spot monitors miraculously warn you of cars driving in your blind spots. Be careful though because some cars may not be detected if they are moving up on you too fast.

Car Safety Features

Lane Departure Warning. Stay in your lane and out of harms’ way with lane departure warnings. This handy safety warning alerts you if you’re drifting out of your lane. These are great for drowsy driver although you shouldn’t be driving if you haven’t had adequate rest.

Adaptive Headlights. I love how the headlights on my car actually follow the road and the direction I’m turning. Living in a rural area it makes it great for being able to not only see better but eliminate hitting animals and objects much better. Adaptive headlights help illuminate the roadway along your path whether you’re driving down a straight or curvy road.

Push Button Start. I love the push button start in my car and that I have to have my foot on the brake to start it. Plus, it simplifies my life and easier to turn my car on and off.
