For Safety On The Road, Bigger Might Just Be Better

    Posted by Ben Davidson about 5 months ago
    No one likes the idea of driving a dangerous car. When you buy your cars, it’s very likely that safety is your number one consideration. But, there’s a factor which a lot of people seem to forget; size. Cars are getting bigger, and with this change, it’s becoming less safe to drive something small. Along with this, though, bigger cars can be a lot more dangerous for other people. So, you need to find a balance between safety brains and brawn in your vehicle. To help you in choosing this for yourself, this post will be going through two of the best cars to be driving in an accident, as well as the other tools you can use to help you.

        •    2017 Land Rover Discovery?

    Larger cars are much better at dealing with impacts than smaller ones, thanks to their size. But, of course, along with this, it can also increase the chance that other people will be hurt. For this reason, you need to look for a car which has a good safety rating for both the people outside and inside of it. The 2017 Discovery offers this, providing you with a host of safety features, including automatic braking, airbags everywhere, and cameras to help you see around the car. This car is at the top of Euro NCAP’s list for 2017’s safest large SUVs.

        •    2017 Vauxhall/Opel Insignia?

    Though this manufacturer goes by two names, both offer the same level of quality and comfort. When it comes to the Insignia, this is especially true. This is the brand’s flagship car, offering families the chance to move in style. Like all of their cars, this Opel has everything a safety conscious driver could ever need, including automatic braking, very cleverly designed crumple zones, and an active bonnet to protect pedestrians. With the car’s sleek design and attractive looks, it’s easy to see why this motor is such a popular choice.

    Along with choosing the right car, it can also pay to make sure that you have the right set of tools to keep you safe on the road. So, to help you out, find some of the best services and resources to make your driving career a lot safer below;

        •    Having good insurance for your car will ensure that you don’t have to worry about damage to your shiny new car. Instead, all of your expensive safety features will be protected by your cover.?
        •    In 2005, over 200,000 personal injury claims relating to auto accidents were made in the US. As more cars join the roads, this number is getting higher. If you find yourself in this spot, you can call 1-800-VICTIM2 to help you. But, it’s worth knowing about the lawyers around you, before you hit the road.?
        •    Advanced driving courses can be found in most cities and towns, offering to improve the driving of experienced and new road users alike. The safest drivers know when it’s best to be taught.?

    Ultimately, the roads are getting safer. Despite more vehicles being on the road, safety standards can go up thanks to modern technology. Over the next few years, it will become more and more common for cars to be driving themselves. At this point, safety won’t be a problem at all.
