Safety Tech

Innovations that help consumers prevent driving accidents

Implications - More brands and designers are creating devices that help drivers drive more safely and avoid road accidents. Ranging from steering wheels that warn drivers of potential hazards to iPhone docks that keep a person's hands free, these safety innovations contribute to better overall driving, something that is undeniably necessary when considering the incredible number of car-related accidents and deaths that occur each year. According to the United States Census Bureau, there were 10.8 million motor vehicle accidents in 2009 alone. This staggering number is reason enough for consumers to embrace innovations that will help them get from Point A to Point B safely.
