Child safety is the priority of all parents, regardless of whether the child is still in the crib or behind the wheel. Parents never stop worrying about the child's well-being and safety. Parental care is intensively increased when children start driving. Safe driving is important both for their safety and for the safety of other drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.
The problem is that you as a parent cannot be there with them all the time to remind them what they should or should not do on the road. Fortunately, the latest car innovations include important accessories and gadgets that help to make the drive more safely.
Down below is a list of all important safety features and accessories for cars that will help protect your children and participants in traffic:
Dashboard and backing/parking camera
The reverse camera is located at the rear of the vehicle and provides information from the surroundings that are behind the vehicle. Usually it turns on when we drive backwards and serves to help with parking.
Both cameras are an indispensable part of additional security equipment when choosing a vehicle for a young or inexperienced driver.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
The ESC is one of the safety features for cars that can help your teenager avoid a collision. It automatically brakes tires when it detects loss of control from the driver's side. This computer-assisted brake technology is available in many new car models.
Airbags, like safety belts, are the most basic but essential safety feature of vehicles. They help to protect passengers in the event of an accident by reducing hard impacts that can cause head and chest damage.
GPS trackers and navigation tools
GPS technology as a navigation tool can lead you to the point where you are headed. GPS trackers and navigation tools are essential if your teenager goes by car to an unknown destination. Physical maps are in the past, because they are clumsy and the driver needs to stop to look at them closely. The GPS device without disturbing the driver leads to the desired goal.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
ABS is a safety anti-lock braking system used in aircraft and on land vehicles, such as cars, motorcycles, trucks and buses. ABS works in such a way as to prevent wheel locking during braking, thereby maintaining traction contact with the surface of the road. ABS belongs to compulsory equipment in newer vehicle models, however, it is necessary to take into account the fact that older vehicles do not have ABS .
With the above safety accessories you can almost assure that your teenager or a young driver will drive safely.
