Getting Rear-Ended Is Going To Be A Thing Of The Past

Safety Technology

This is a great piece of news for the future of driving!

Getting rear-ended really sucks. Luckily, a large group of automakers has agreed to include automatic emergency braking on all of their models by 2022. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration confirmed that an agreement was signed by automakers to include this feature by September 1, 2022. The long list includes: Audi, BMW, FCA, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia, Maserati, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.

By signing this agreement, the NHTSA no longer has to impose regulations on emergency braking systems that would have taken an extra three years to impose. During that time, an estimated 28,000 preventable crashes with around 12,000 injuries would have occurred. This agreement is a great concession to safety on our roads and one that we are happy to see. You may not love the idea of autonomous cars, but not getting rear-ended ever again is pretty nice.
