Did you know the 50’s brought huge leaps in car safety technologies with the introduction of the airbag and three point seatbelt. The three point seatbelt was one of the most effective car safety features ever created. Safety features have been saving lives for years and there is no difference in this new era of automation.

Why did you choose a 5-Star Safety Ratings? Perhaps, to drive safer for yourself and others on the road? The 5-Star Safety Ratings program evaluates how vehicles perform in crash tests. NHTSA conducts frontal, side and rollover tests because these types account for the majority of crashes on America’s roadways. 

Driver assistance technologies not only keep drivers and passengers safe, but they keep other drivers and pedestrians safe as well. Driver assistance technologies such as Automatic Emergency Breaking or Lane Keeping Assist were created to reduce collisions. As these technologies advance to become more reactive to human error while driving, drivers must understand how the systems communicate with them.

FeaturesFirst Auto is helping consumers break through the confusion with information about how these technologies work, as well as safety-related performance information. Some systems are designed to warn you if you’re at risk of a crash, while others are designed to take action to actively avoid a crash. It’s important to understand the difference.

FeaturesFirst Auto believes that appropriate consumer training on the safe and efficient use of driver assistance technologies is critical to the safety of the drivers, passengers, and other roadway users on the roadway. In order for the community of travel to see the safety benefits of driver assistance technologies, driver understanding of what the technology is, what it is doing and what will happen next must improve! 

Our mission is to bring order to the chaos and fear consumers feel about autonomous vehicle technologies by simplifying information, bridging driver understanding gaps, and effectively introducing positive experiences in the rapidly emerging automotive markets in the United States to promote safer cars, together with safer road users.

The FeaturesFirst Auto app takes the consumer on the journey of understanding driver assistance technologies through an interactive learning experience that empowers and educates the consumer to become a “smart” driver. Join the community to empower yourself to drive safe and informed in this new era of automation!
