Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
As automotive technology has progressed throughout the years, driver safety has improved as a result of advanced features. A recent article from Live Insurance News reveals that one of the latest features found in cars—automatic braking systems—could improve safety risks among drivers in the near future. The information is based on new data presented by car manufacturer Volvo, which has remained vigilant about designing automobiles and implementing technology that enable greater driver and passenger protection. As a law firm that has provided legal representation in numerous auto accident cases, Montlick & Associates applauds the continued effort of auto companies to deliver safer cars.
In the article, senior safety adviser at Volvo, Thomas Broberg, explains, “A holistic approach and real-life traffic conditions are always the starting-point for our safety work. Our massive database with input from actual road accidents helps us focus on the areas where new technology creates significant results in real-life-traffic.” This approach, in conjunction with the information collected by the company’s Traffic Accident Research team, has allowed Volvo to develop and incorporate technology that is proven to reduce auto collisions. While the article suggests that the technology could eventually improve auto insurance rates, David R. Montlick, CEO of Montlick & Associates, notes that consumers should remain focused on the protection vehicles can offer.
The article states, “Research from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety showed that the City Safety technology from Volvo has brought about a reduction of up to 22 percent in collisions. That feature is a form of automatic braking system that gives the vehicle the ability to begin slowing itself down ahead of a head-on collision once the car has reached a certain speed.” In response to this research, Montlick concludes, “At Montlick & Associates, we encourage people to carefully examine the new safety and auto accident avoidance technology that is available as you contemplate the purchase of a new car or truck. We have seen in our Georgia-based, personal injury law firm how some of this technology has prevented or reduced the severity of injuries, and we support the efforts to make safety features widely available and standard on new automobiles, trucks and motorcycles.”
