Safety Features in Modern Cars
If you intend to buy a car, one of
the item to ensure is what type of safety features is available inside
the car. Unlike in the past where safety features of a car is just
referring to simple things such as clear visibility. It now include more
advanced systems such as anti lock braking system and electronic
Below are some of the Safety Features available in the modern cars now :
Anti Lock Braking System (ABS) is one of most important safety features
in a car. This system allows the driver to have greater control over the
steering wheel when an accident occur. It prevents the wheels from
locking and skidding when performing an emergency brake on a
slippery road. It can helps to shorten the stopping distance. Brake
Assist may not be so common among the cars but it works well with ABS.
It monitors the drivers braking habits and if during an emergency
braking, it will applys a much greater force on the brake than the
driver does so that it will helps to stop the vehicle in time.
Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) is another system that ofetn
works with ABS. It works by providing hydraulic pressure to the front
and rear wheels so that allowing greater control over the steering and
stopping the vehicle. It prevents the rear wheels from lock up during
the emergency brake.
Traction Control is to prevent the tyres from skidding while driving. It
oversees the speed of four tyres and when it detect one tyre is turning
much faster than the other three, it will slow down that fast moving
tyre so that it can regain traction.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is to help the driver in control of
the vehicle when an extreme concerning is detected. The computer
controlled technology allows individual brakes on a single wheel to
reduce the potential of skidding. It also helps to prevent the car from
overturning when the vehicle crashes on an object while driving in a
