Car companies may not make engines the way they used to - but they're making cars safer and more crash-proof per pound than ever before.  And that is a good thing when it comes to your Auto Insurance rate.  From materials to GPS technology to microchips, innovation has made a wide variety of potentially life-saving technologies cost-effective and affordable for the car buyer. Car safety devices and features can be separated into two categories: Passive devices (seat belts and airbags), and active devices, which proactively help drivers avoid accidents, not just survive them.

Inattention, driving under the influence of alcohol and excessive speeding.  These are all actions that can greatly affect your premium.  Such drivers ultimately cause accidents, occasionally ending the lives of innocent people. In addition to the expenses and punishments stemming from legal trouble, reckless drivers also end up experiencing higher auto insurance rates. Other penalties will involve license suspensions, taking classes through the DMV and fees. Auto insurance following such a reinstatement is much more expensive than traditional rates.

Numerous factors contribute to the longer average life spans of today's world, and car safety is one of the major factors. New advances in safety features has resulted in less people die in accidents today than they did several decades ago. Cars that drive automatically may seem futuristic, but so did many of today's features several decades ago. Car safety technology is advancing rapidly. The following points provide some examples. Adaptive Cruise Control In the past, cruise control was simply about setting a desired speed. However, a driver not paying attention could still slam into the back of another vehicle. With new technology, there are sensors installed in many vehicles' cruise control features to warn the driver or apply the brakes when they get too close. If a collision is sensed, the brakes will be applied hard. The seat belts will also tighten. Granted, this is not an invitation for drivers to give in to distractions, but it could prevent such mistakes from costing motorists their lives. Tire P ... [...]

While liability coverage alone satisfies the state's legal minimum requirements, it will not be enough to compensate for most accidents. In most cases, owners of new vehicles have unpaid loans to think about, so repairs are almost impossible to pay for. Spare parts are often expensive if they are available at all. As soon as a new car leaves lot, its value depreciates considerably. For this reason, the majority of vehicle owners feel safer with insurance that covers accidents, theft and natural disasters.

While not being the most upstanding citizens in the world, thieves have excellent organizational skills. Discriminating thieves will not just break into any random car. When they make the effort to steal, they make sure it is worth their time and the risk of getting caught. In many cases, they may be after the vehicle itself instead of the contents of it.
