New segment for public helps educate consumers...

"In America," with the program's host, James Earl Jones, is producing the latest in its line of educational programs to help shed light on vehicle safety. The evolution of motor vehicle safety has been dramatic, especially in recent years. Almost every new vehicle design added to a vehicle nowadays is to either improve fuel economy and performance or to boost passenger safety inside of the vehicle. The organization is now gathering expert content from industry members in advance of releasing the program in late 2015.

Since the creation of the motor vehicle, designers and engineers have looked for ways to improve safety. As vehicles increased in speed and performance, the need to improve safety increased as well. From altering the kind of glass used in the vehicle to the installation of the seatbelt, vehicle safety moved slower in the first half century of the motor vehicle. However, since then, technology has caught up to drastically improve passenger safety. Now, computers and sensors are installed throughout a vehicle in order to communicate with other vehicles nearby, which in turn allows the vehicle to avoid accidents, maintain its location in the road and prevent any accidental corrections the driver might make. There are also some fascinating new developments in the world of vehicle safety. These elements, and other advances, will be highlights of the program.

"In America" is an independent production that is picked up and distributed to Public Television Stations across the country, all for airing at the individual station's discretion. The production is not a creation of PBS or APT and it does not have any affiliation with these organizations.
