Be warned

People make mistakes when they’re driving, which is why you should buy the safest vehicle within your budget.

Many fatal and serious injury crashes in Tasmania are head-on or single vehicle run-off-road crashes, where a vehicle has run off the road into the path of another vehicle, or hit a tree or pole. A driver may be distracted or inattentive, tired, or stray too far beyond the marked lane which can cause a tragedy.

The Australian New Car Assessment Program’s latest campaign, that includes real-life dashcam footage, shows how Lane Support Systems can save lives by warning a driver when she or he is leaving a lane without indicating.

LSS can reduce head-on and single-vehicle crashes by 30%. Check out the safety of your car or one you’re thinking of buying.
