Car/Pedestrian Safety Feature Fails

Automakers have gone full speed ahead on advertising them, but new safety features designed to keep cars from hitting pedestrians, may leave some drivers in the danger zone! A recent study by Triple A shows the pedestrian detection systems in four different car models didn’t perform as well as expected. On the models tested, Chevy Malibu, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Tesla Model 3 the pedestrian detection systems were generally ineffective at 30 miles per hour, and completely ineffective at night! Triple A’s warning: while these systems have the potential to save lives, drivers should not rely too much on sensors and software to prevent accidents.
