Road accidents are almost entirely fatal. You will rarely find cases of car collision where the driver and passenger experienced minimal injuries. This is why you need to secure your family and yourself by buying a car that has all the necessary safety features. Do not compromise these and buy a cheap car that doesn’t even have airbags that prevent you from hitting hard surfaces during a collision. Take time searching for safety features when inspecting the car you want to buy.

Seatbelts are a common car safety device. However, some people find them useless or even annoying when they do not unlock. But during a collision, seatbelts are your heroes. They prevent you from hitting the steering wheel, windshield, or dashboard. Aside from airbags, seatbelts reduce the impact of collision. You might still incur some injuries but these will not be fatal compared to when you are not wearing seatbelts.

Airbags work the same way as the seatbelt. However, there are some issues regarding the function of airbags. When airbags inflate, they exert force to strongly push the driver and the passenger back to their seats, which may lead to head and back injuries. With the seatbelts safely girdled, the impact of the airbag’s release is lessened, as well as the potential injuries you might incur from the collision.

Although not ideal for all types of car, a four-wheel drive is the safest configuration of vehicles. Unlike a two-wheel drive car with only the front or rear tires exerting friction on the road to prevent slipping, a four-wheel drive car enables a driver to control all the wheels to resist slipping and to stay on track. Branded cars like Ford in Indianapolis have models with four-wheel drive configurations, which are safer to drive during the rainy season.

The tires’ behavior on different types of surfaces can be controlled using an electronic stability control. This feature prevents over-steering or under-steering by automatically applying the brake on a single wheel. Aside from being equipped with a four-wheel drive to improve traction, sports utility vehicles like Ford Escape Indianapolis has to offer are often equipped with electronic stability control.

Neck injury is a common collision injury. When a car hits another car on the rear or on the front, the driver or passenger will most likely experience adverse head movement that might result in neck injury. With head restrain built-in on seats of cars that Ford dealerships Indianapolis has offer, this can be prevented.
