Auto safety ratings to include collision prevention systems (Update), auto safety ratings.#Auto #safety #ratings

Auto safety ratings to include collision prevention systems (Update) The government on Tuesday announced plans to update its safety rating system for new cars and trucks to include whether the vehicle has technology to avoid crashes, in addition to how well it protects occupants in accidents.

YahooNews By Keith Griffin No one ever plans to be in a car accident, but if one happens, we want to be safe. In fact, a 2012 survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center found that 65 percent of car buyers said safety was the most important thing to them when deciding which car to buy. There’s just one problem: How do you tell if a car is safe? When researching a new or used car online, there are two important safety ratings to look for: the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s star ratings and the Insurance Institute for …
