The Car Buyer's Guide: Different Safety Devices Installed in Cars

Choosing a car requires thorough observation and inspection. One of the most important features that buyers need to check is the safety devices. Cars may have different safety devices installed, but the common safety devices are seat belts, airbags, head protection, traction control, and the Antilock Brake System (ABS).

Seat belts: One safety device that prevents fatal injuries during car accidents is the seat belt. Mandated by state laws, seatbelts should be installed in the front and rear seats of the car to keep passengers from colliding with the dashboard, steering wheel, or windshield during accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 40 to 60 percent of lives can be saved if people would buckle up when they drive.

Airbags: These safety devices greatly reduce impact, and prevent the front passengers from hitting the dashboard, windshield and steering wheel. Although airbags can greatly reduce injuries, there are cases when airbags alone cannot prevent serious injuries from occurring. For instance, not wearing a seatbelt when an airbag deploys may cause severe head and upper torso injuries. Children below 12 are also not advised to be seated at the front since the impact can cause fatal injuries when an airbag deploys.

Head protection: Dealerships of

may offer vehicles with head injury protection or head restraints. Head injury protection consists of protective foam built in the trim of the car to prevent front passengers from hitting the upper interior or roof. Head restraints, on the other hand, are installed in the front and rear seats to prevent head and neck injuries during a car collision. Head restraints come in two types: manual and dynamic.

Traction control: When the car accelerates in an excessive amount of speed, traction control stabilizes the movement, and keeps the car from losing contact with the pavement. This device automatically applies friction on the wheels, provides a braking force, and adjusts the engine's power output. Some

dealers offer vehicles with this device, along with an antilock brake system, to ensure the safety of their buyers.

Antilock Brake System (ABS): When a driver loses control of his car, the ABS prevents the wheels from locking and allows the driver to maintain control. Most
used cars Blinkington Ontario
dealers offer, such as SUVs and vans, are equipped with ABS. There are two types of ABS: four-wheel ABS and two-wheel ABS. Four-wheel ABS are designed to control the movement of all four wheels of a car, while the two-wheel ABS only controls the rear wheels. ABS also features brake assist, which applies braking force and activates the ABS more quickly.
