What kinds of technology help you avoid crashes?

The summer is here, and you may be planning to travel often. Maybe you've scheduled some fun vacation dates or plan to seek out adventure on the open road. Whatever you're doing, it's a good idea to avoid getting into a car accident.

There are many ways to avoid a crash, and these three features will help you stay safe when you pick out a rental vehicle. Enjoy your drive, and if you are hit, know that you have a right to pursue a claim.

1. Choose a vehicle with lane-departure warning

Know when you're out of line with lane-departure warning. This new technology alerts you if you go out of your lane while driving. These alerts usually work best on highways, so try them for a long summer drive.

2. Adaptive cruise control (ACC) for better control

Don't you hate having to slow down suddenly for a dangerous driver ahead of you? Fortunately, adaptive cruise control can help. While you're traveling on the highway at a standard speed, adaptive cruise control will make sure to adjust for anything that enters your lane. Did a driver slide into the space in front of you? ACC helps you back off without needing you to adjust your speed manually.

3. Blind-spot warning

Particularly in the cases of motorcyclists, drivers' blind spots can be extremely dangerous. Blind-spot warnings helps you detect vehicles you can't see, so you can prevent a crash.

These pieces of technology can help keep you safe this summer. If someone else strikes you despite your attempts to stay safe, you can file a claim.
