Evaluating Safety Features and Testing the Safety of Vehicles 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) annually conducts safety tests on a variety of vehicles. It assigns a star rating to vehicles based on the results of crash tests. The NHTSA’s highest safety rating is a 5-star rating. On its website, you can view the 2021 vehicles tested by the NHTSA.

Among the areas that the NHTSA tests to determine a vehicle’s crashworthiness are, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Frontal-impact crashes, such as a head-on crash with another vehicle or a fixed object
  • Side impact collisions, such as a sideswipe with another vehicle or a stationary object, are the most common type of accident.
  • Rollover resistance tests rank the likelihood that a vehicle will roll over in a collision or accident.

These tests determine how vehicles perform in a collision. They also provide information about the various injuries drivers and passengers might sustain, including injuries to the back, chest , brain , abdomen, and neck.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) also compiles a list of vehicles ranked by their fatality and crash statistics . The IIHS examines crash statistics to identify any recurring patterns. Patterns may indicate that a vehicle’s flaw or defect contributes to the severity of a collision.

How Well Does Driver Assistance Technology Work?

The NHTSA and other organisations also evaluate the effectiveness of various driver assistance features in preventing or reducing the likelihood of a collision.

You may wish to investigate the following driver assistance features before purchasing a new vehicle:

  • Adaptive lighting
  • Reverse cross-traffic warning
  • Lane departure warning
  • Pedestrian automatic emergency braking
  • Back-up cameras
  • Forward collision warning
  • Rear automatic braking
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Automatic emergency braking

Beginning on May 1, 2018, rearview cameras are standard on all new vehicle models. However, many of the additional safety features are not included.

What Should You Do After a Car Accident in New York City?

To report the accident, dial 911. The emergency operator will provide you with further instructions. If you or someone else has been injured, call for emergency medical services.

If possible, use your cell phone or another electronic device to take photographs and video of the accident scene. Ask eyewitnesses for their names and contact information if there are any. If your case goes to trial, eyewitness testimony may be persuasive.

You should seek medical care for your injuries. Do not provide an insurance company with a written or recorded statement before consulting with an attorney. Even though New York is a no-fault auto insurance state, you may still be able to file a lawsuit against the other driver if you suffered severe injuries. A car accident attorney can advise you on the next steps to take to protect your legal rights.
