Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of accidents on the road, whether it is simply the mind wandering or looking a phone while driving. On average, 8 people die and over 1,000 are injured each day as a result of human error or forgetfulness, so Nissan is implementing several new features on upcoming models to combat distracted driving. There are even features to help prevent parents from leaving their kid inside a hot car. Look for these features on 2018 vehicles at Cardinale Nissan, your number one source for new and used cars in Monterey.
Rear Door Alert
Leaving kids or pets in the car during warm months can be extremely dangerous, and the Rear Door Alert system will help remind parents with a sound or car horn. By checking and remembering if a rear car door was opened before a trip started, this feature will alert drivers if the rear door hasn’t been opened again once the trip ends. The feature will first be available on the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, a safe and family friendly car that combines luxury and practicality.
Highway Safety Features
Anytime you travel at high speeds, the consequences of distracted driving will be more severe and more likely to happen as traffic can change in an instant. Many drivers often consult their phone for directions, but Nissan’s advanced navigation display can both find the fastest route and be displayed between your speedometer and tachometer. This allows you to get directions and return your eyes to the road faster than ever. Other features such as Lane Keep Assist and Blind Spot Warning keep you wary of your car’s position relative to other vehicles.
Cars like the Nissan Maxima and Nissan Pathfinder help keep families and drivers safer, so visit Cardinale Nissan today to find a vehicle that fits your budget and lifestyle.
