Let me share some facts. First, cars are, and will always be expensive. Second, driving poses additional responsibilities to the owner/driver. Hopefully, this article would help you protect you and your car from any unwanted car-related instances.
1. Car alarms and sensors.
Yes, car alarms. While some of the car owners take this feature for granted, we will tell you why you shouldn’t. We get it! It can be annoying to go out of your way turning off the alarm every time it goes off unintentionally or getting a massive headache by just listening to its deafening sound for quite some time. But these things that we are complaining of–these makes thieves flee. Just as much as you hate being around a car with a blazing alarm, thieves feel the same way too.
2. Car tracking device & anti-theft systems.
This is ONE of the most important security features any car should have. No joke! Aside from being extremely helpful when navigating through unfamiliar places, having a GPS vehicle tracking device will give you a better shot at recovering your car if stolen. Your service provider can track down its location, disable it (rendering it useless) to allow it be recovered quickly.
3. Forward collision systems (FCS)
Despite the numerous warning and reminder of car-related injuries/fatalities, some of us just can’t take their hands off their phone while driving. If you can relate to this, it is worth checking if your car supports Forward Collision Systems or FCS. Basically, its radar determines if the gap is closing on the vehicle in front of you and takes control of the car to reduce the severity of the impact.
4. Active Breaking System
Having a great car braking support can save you from serious injuries, even from death. No exaggeration, just pointing out reality. Depending on the type of braking system your car has, it can warn you of the impending collisions, or assist the driver use the maximum braking capacity of the car and apply brakes independently of the driver in critical situations.
5. Other advanced security features such as Cyber-security
As the automotive industry has added more digital control systems and embedded computers, this places the owner vulnerable to potentially dangerous hacking. High-end cars nowadays rely on computerized control for collision prevention and intelligence cruise control, that if hacked, it’s as if you’re a passenger on the driver’s seat, holding on to a wheel that is being controlled by someone else.
