The "idea" of fully autonomous vehicles is very popular right now. Consumers are being bombarded with articles about the latest driverless vehicles and autonomous delivery trucks to hit the roads for testing.

Newer vehicles are more likely to include the latest life-saving safety technology. If you're currently in the market to buy a new vehicle here are some safety features that you might want to make sure that it has.

Stop at red lights or face the consequences

Have you noticed that more drivers than ever are not respecting common traffic laws these days? Perhaps people don't mean to break the law.

Does your vehicle make a difference in a crash?

Personal injuries can run the gamut from minor to severe when you crash. The vehicle you're in at the time of the crash makes a significant difference in how dangerous a crash is for you.

What are the top 3 causes of car crashes?

Car accident causes vary depending on what part of the country you're in, the time of year and local trends.

Countless deadly Takata airbags remain on the road

We've been hearing about the tragedies, injuries and deaths caused by Takata airbags for a decade. So far, 22 people have died and countless people have been injured in relatively minor accidents that result in these dangerous airbags exploding and sending bullet-like metal projectiles into vehicle compartments.

How many drivers are asleep at the wheel?

Have you ever been driving your car at night and noticed yourself drifting off to sleep? Even at the slightest sign of sleepiness, you should immediately pull off to the side of the road, take a brief nap or drink a cup of coffee. If this isn't enough to resolve your sleep-deprived situation, it's best to save your driving activities for another day rather than to risk your life and the lives of others because you were too tired to stay awake behind the wheel.

Rusty steering bolts trigger massive Tesla recall

American consumers should never assume that the products they purchase are fully safe. Although product safety laws exist to protect consumers – and give them legal recourse in the event they are harmed by defective goods – there are numerous yet-to-be-discovered dangerous products available for purchase right now. Unfortunately, people usually have to get hurt before such products are identified and taken off the market, but that's not what happened in a recent Tesla recall.
