Auto Safety Features Are There for a Reason
If you’ve purchased a car in the last few years, you’ve probably noticed several new features designed to help protect you on the roadway. And thanks to that advanced engineering and technology, today’s cars are safer than ever. (Having the right auto insurance can protect you on the road, too.)
However, a national survey by Erie Insurance found that not everyone is taking advantage of these new safety features.
According to the survey, which asked 500 U.S. licensed drivers (ages 18 and older with vehicles made in 2016 and after), if they are intentionally turning off or disabling these safety features that could ultimately help them avoid crashes.
So, which features are drivers toggling off – and why?
