The Future of These Buick Cars Safety Features

futureIn our recent assignments on behalf of your Buick Car Dealership in Thunder Bay, we have taken time to find facts surrounding some of the latest in safety feature available on your new Buick cars and GMC trucks in Canada.  One that is the most intriguing are the style features that bring you the ability to be warned of danger you may otherwise miss.  Even more interesting and devoted to safety, are the versions of those features that take it another step and actually correct part of the safety issue for you.

So, what’s the Point of Lane Departure Warning And Lane-Keeping Assist?  This is the next segment of our discussion and we want to tell you what we think and what the experts are saying about these Buick Cars in Thunder Bay ON and what the advantages are to having these features on their new cars. “According to the National Highway Transportation Administration, about 70 percentof all single-vehicle highway fatalities in the United States occur in run-off-road accidents. Since run-off-the-road accidents occur when a vehicle leaves its lane and drives off the roadway, lane departure warning systems have the potential to help prevent many fatal accidents.”

Some of the specific results are really only in theory at this point, since enough time has not gone by in the presence of these features so that we can gather reliable stats as a result of their use.  Theoretically, though, lane departure warning has a tremendous potential. “In fact, AAA says that lane departure warning could totally eliminate almost 50 percent of all head-on collisions.”  As stated above, however, real-world test data hasn’t lived up to that potential just yet. We think that is probably simply due to an insufficient number of Buick cars in Canada, along with all other vehicles actually possessing the features as of yet.  We think in the near future that this reality will change and that it will become much easier to measure the effectiveness of such safety features in new Buick cars in Canada.
