Active Safety




Active safety refers to the features of your vehicle intended to help to prevent collision, as opposed to passive safety features intended to minimize collision consequences. Active safety measures mainly affect handling and braking. In the past active safety features were limited to things like better brakes, better tires, stiffer suspension, or sharper steering. In recent years new “smart” safety systems have been introduced on many cars. ABS brakes, traction control, and electronic stability control are some of the electronic miracles that assist modern drivers today.

However, those "electronic nannies" are thought to be more harm than good by some experts (myself included). There are two major flaws to "electronic nannies" that I see. First is that those devices never can consider all variables driver considers, thus acting sometimes against driver decisions and interfering with his actions. This is the last thing experienced driver wants from his car. Secondly, such devices significantly reduce driver’s alertness to the road situation, thus exposing unsuspecting driver to a greater danger if "electronic nannies" fail to perform when pushed over the limit.
