Do You Have Automatic Braking?

Major automakers recently announced that they will install automatic braking systems in U.S. vehicles by September 2022.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) helped reach this voluntary agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Institute has said that as many as 20% of crashes could be prevented by this new technology. That’s 5 million crashes every year.

In 2012, rear-end crashes killed 1,705 Americans and injured 54,7000. About 87% of those deaths and injuries may have been prevented by automatic braking technology. The technology causes a car to brake to avoid a rear-end collision.
