Safety Feature Frustrations

Today’s cars have more gizmos and gadgets than at anytime in the past. Included in these are features and functions intended to keep passengers safe. Unfortunately, some of these features are becoming quite the nuisance for some drivers – so much so that they are actually being disabled. The “advanced driver assistance systems” in many new cars present drivers with so many alerts that the annoyance is unbearable for some. In a recent survey, 23% of respondents said that functions such as lane-keeping and centering were “bothersome”. If you find yourself becoming more and more annoyed by your car’s technology, we strongly urge you not to disable any safety systems. The result could be devastating.
