How Technology Is Preventing Nashville Car Accidents

by Staff Blogger | September 8th, 2014

There’s almost an endless list of causes to motor vehicle collisions. One of the most common causes for a Nashville car accident is faulty equipment, with one in six cars and trucks in the city currently under recall.

This figure leaves many local Middle Tennesseans wondering what they can do to ensure their vehicle is safe and is free of faulty equipment. An article from News Channel 5 investigates points out most vehicles under recall do not get repaired because the owner is simply unaware of the problem. But now there are two new ways to stay abreast on the latest vehicle recalls.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has created a new search on their website. Just enter the Vehicle Information Number (VIN) of your vehicle to see if there are any associated recalls.

Carfax has also created a smartphone app that alerts motor vehicle owners to recalls. Just enter your car or truck’s license plate to see if there are any open recalls on your vehicle. The app will also alert users to future recalls on their vehicles.

While technology can be handy to raise awareness of problems with vehicles, accidents can still happen. That’s why it’s important to speak with a Nashville personal injury lawyer if you’ve been injured in an auto accident.
