During the past decade, the number of high-tech safety features on vehicles has skyrocketed. Beginning in May 2018, all new vehicles sold in the U.S. must have backup cameras. That feature alone makes backing up much safer, especially when children and pedestrians are nearby.

But that feature is just one of many that new vehicles tout. Other features include lane departure warnings, crash avoidance systems, blind spot warnings, and more. Some vehicles are even capable of driving themselves on highways and interstates, complete with automatic braking and acceleration in response to changing traffic patterns and the movements of other vehicles.

When combined with standard safety features like seatbelts, airbags, and safer vehicle designs, there’s never been a better or safer time to be on the road in Middle Tennessee. However, it’s important to not become too reliant on those safety features or get complacent while you’re driving. Right now, the best way to avoid a crash still revolves around being focused, aware, and cautious behind the wheel.

In addition, high-tech features can sometimes pose a risk in and of themselves by distracting drivers. The addition of backup cameras in particular means that all vehicles now have some degree of “infotainment” systems and touchscreens, which can be highly distracting while driving. Remember to keep your focus on the task at hand and not on your GPS, radio, or text messages.

At Ponce Law, we understand the challenges drivers face in our high-tech society, but when their negligence causes crashes, we hold them accountable. Contact our Nashville car accident lawyers if you or someone you love was hurt in a crash that wasn’t your fault.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
