New car technology keeps arising with new innovations and safer tech, but is it more confusing for people to use? You wouldn’t think it would be more confusing for people, but it is. Automated safe technology integrated into cars are causing confusing reactions to people because the cars itself aren’t quite automated, but some of the features are.
Since it’s the beginning of automated car technology, drivers need to be aware of the features before they hop into the vehicle, or else the confusion will linger even more. Features such as automatic emergency braking and the warning systems for cars merging into another highway lane are the common ones. This can also be a problem when leasing, buying or renting a new vehicle because you may not be familiar with the technology.
The technology is meant to help the driver be more aware of their surroundings when on the road and limit distractions, but it seems as though there is not enough education, especially for the older generations. There needs to be prior education and training when buying, leasing, or renting a new car, so that the driver can stay safe on the road if they are not accustomed to the car.
Before Getting into a New Car
As a driver, it’s important to learn the automated features of the new cars before stepping into them for the ride. If you are at a dealership, you should always be talking to the salesman or tech person about the features and how they work. Let them show you all the new safety features, so that when you are out on the road, you’ll be able to react.
