Vehicle safety features

Did you know?

How safe are our roads?

1995 data
43,900 deaths
5 deaths and 260 disabling injuries per hour
The # of deaths & # deaths/mile jumps in June, and peaks in August.

Friday (especially evening/night hours) has more fatal accidents than any other day

Driving injuries - on or off the job

The most hazardous environment
For most of us, whether on or off the job, it is on the road.
We face it daily.
A recent report from another AlliedSignal site:
A manager was beginning a business trip
Was driving from his house to the airport on the freeway
Was shaving and looking into the rearview mirror
Saw (in peripheral vision) something cut in front of him
Reacted by steering to the right, driving off the freeway and hitting a tree

Result was a broken hip

Unsafe acts behind the wheel

Shaving
Putting on make-up
Reading a map
Reaching behind you to spank kids
Not using a seatbelt

Driving under the influence

Driving at an unsafe speed
Failing to stop or yield
Unsafe passing of another vehicle
Tailgating
Not using blinkers
Others?

 
Driving under the influence (DUI)

Alcohol was involved in 41% of all traffic fatalities in ‘94
Sobering facts:
About 2 in every 5 Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related traffic accident at some time in their lives
Remember the one-one rule: one drink per hour (Your body takes about an hour to rid itself of each 1/2 ounce of alcohol)
Progress in this arena:
A social stigma has been building against drinking & driving

Many social drinkers are being more responsible

“Road rage”
Road rage is driving under the influence of too much anger. 
Provoked by:
Feeling endangered by someone else’s driving (another driver cuts you off or tailgates you).
Resentment at being forced to slow down
Righteous indignation at someone who breaks traffic rules
Anger at someone taking out their road rage on you
uTherapy for road rage:

Take a deep breath and just let it go!    

Unsafe conditions

Poor visibility
Night time driving (Fatality rates/mile are 4 times higher at night.)
Dust storms
Rain storms
Windshield wipers not effective
Poor road conditions
Slippery surfaces from weather

Road not properly maintained
Improper vehicle maintenance
Inadequate brakes
Worn tread on tires
Hoses, belts
Inadequate acceleration
Headlight(s) out
Other? 
Vehicle safety features
Daytime running lights
(Headlights that are on whenever vehicle is running)
Lap/shoulder safety belts
Reduce risk of moderate-to-fatal injuries by approximately 50%.
Air bags for driver & passenger
Combined with lap/shoulder belts, they reduce risk of fatality by another 10%.
Side impact airbags

Ability to disengage airbags
Child safety seats
Note:  Children in child seats should not be placed in the front seat of cars
Anti-lock brakes
Safety cages built into the vehicle framework
If buying a new car, ask about side-impact collision data.
Other?
Did you know?

When driving on a road that is new to you:
You eyes tend to scan the road from left to right which is an excellent driving habit.
We tend not to scan when in familiar territory.
uHow closely can you safely follow another car?
We tend to follow based on how much of the road we can see
»A long hood causes us to follow at a greater distance (since you have to look over the hood to see the street).
»Drivers with shorter hoods tend to follow more closely
Use the 2 or 4 second rule
»Good driving conditions, keep a 2 second distance behind

»Poor driving conditions, keep a 4 second distance behind
