“Deathproof” Cars

Each year in the U.S., there are over 37,000 deaths from car accidents. This is a sad truth that is the result of careless driving and failed safety features in vehicles. But the car engineers at Volvo are looking to change that.

 

Volvo is touting a “deathproof” car on the market by 2020, according to CNN. This car will be the safest vehicle that Volvo has ever offered. It will feature all of the latest and greatest safety features such as adaptive cruise control, auto lane-keeping assist, collision avoidance, pedestrian detection and large-animal detection.

 

Of course, Volvo cannot guarantee that these vehicles will be death proof. Even the unsinkable Titanic met its match, but the idea of a “deathproof” car will definitely pique the interest of cautious drivers everywhere. But the concept isn’t all that new.

 

According to data provided by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there are already nine cars that have led to no fatalities in the past four years. One of those cars is in fact a Volvo but the list also includes the Kia Sorento and the Subaru Legacy.

 

As autonomous vehicle technology advances, more safety features are being rolled out to keep the driver and passengers safe.
