Cars are safer now than they’ve ever been. With stock safety features at an all-time high, the auto industry is continually making strides to keep drivers and their passengers safe. If you’re looking for additional safety features, you can ask about car dealership add-ons. At AVENEW, we want to make sure you stay as safe as possible when you’re driving, so we have five ways add-ons like Pulse Protects will keep you safe.
Get your attention
It’s not unusual to be driving along and lose focus on the road ahead. Whether it’s because of something going on in your vehicle or on the side of the road, distracted driving is a real hazard. Fortunately, there are safety features you can get added to your vehicle to help with this. Features like blind-spot monitors, following distance sensors, and rear traffic alerts will let you know if there are vehicles to your side, front, and back.
Get a distracted driver’s attention
There are certain things on the road that are out of your control and the attention other drivers pay to their surroundings is one of them. However, this doesn’t mean that getting their attention is out of your hands. Every vehicle does, after all, come installed with a horn. Your efforts don’t have to stop with a noisy horn because it’s not effective to honk your horn every time you’re going to come to a stop or quickly slow down in traffic. This is both ineffective to those behind and incredibly rude to those in front of you. Add-ons like Pulse Protects alerts drivers to your rear by flashing your third brake light as a way to grab their attention.
Protect you from broken glass
You can get glass protection and tint from a dealership that will keep you safe in an accident. Broken glass poses a major threat to the safety of anyone in a vehicle no matter how major or minor a car crash is. By tinting your windows or have a protective adhesive applied, you’re protecting yourself and those in your vehicle from shattered glasses exploding into the cabin of your vehicle. These products keep windows will keep shattered glass contained within the adhesive in order to keep you and your passengers safe.
Protect your car from rocks
It’s a scary moment when a rock is flying toward your windshield. No matter how big or small, there are a number of things that will go through your mind from the potential for a major rock chip to a shattered windshield. Protective films will not only keep your windshield from breaking, but they will also deflect rocks away without causing any damage to the glass.
Helping you find your way
Most vehicles come standard with some kind of navigation system. Although, if you’re buying a car that doesn’t come with an in-dash system, you can upgrade to have the dealership install one. Navigation systems are not only helpful in getting you to your destination in a timely manner, but they also keep you safe. If you’re trying to drive in an unfamiliar area without the help of a navigation system, you’re going to be distracted by looking at street signs, landmarks, and could potentially turn the wrong way down a one-way street. Your navigation system will go a long way to getting you to where you need to be safe.
