Car safety has come a long way in recent times. Almost since the car was invented, people have been striving to make travel on the road as safe as possible and we’ve progressed with leaps and bounds, year after year, decade after decade.
Here at First4Lawyers.com, we take a brief look at just how car safety has changed over the last 100 years and, indeed, how it looks set to change over the next few years.
This car safety infographic outlines what we saw in the 20th century, from rear view mirrors to crash test dummies, and what we’re already seeing in the 21st century, from automated braking systems to make-up for dummies. We also take a look at Google’s driverless car – the future of safety on the road – and the current safest car in the world, the Volvo V40, which received a full five star rating in its Euro NCAP safety tests.
Modern car manufacturers are constantly striving to minimise road traffic accidents by eliminating human error out on the road, so we thought it fitting to highlight their efforts in this inquisitive yet, by no means, comprehensive infographic.
We owe thanks to the road safety charity, Brake, for providing some of the statistics presented below:
