Driver assistance technologies, when used properly, have the potential to keep drivers, passengers, and pedestrians safe. As car developers and manufacturers continue to outfit the newest vehicles with the newest safety features, some of the most common focus on forward collisions prevention, lane and side assist, maintaining safe distances, and backing up and parking.

In regard to backing up and parking, backup cameras help prevent back-over crashes—protecting some of the most vulnerable people, including children and senior citizens. Essentially, backup cameras help drivers see behind their vehicles. This, however, doesn’t mean back-over accidents have stopped. Let’s take a look at to what extent backup cameras have improved vehicle safety.

When you’re traveling with your little one in the car you want them to be as safe as possible, so you strap them into a car seat in the back seat. You might have a front-facing car seat for your one-year-old, but if you’re in the state of Missouri, that could soon be against the law.

While front-facing car seats allow you to more easily see your child in the rear-view mirror while driving, it might not be the safest mode of transportation for them, depending on your child’s size and age. Staying up-to-date on the state’s car seat laws is the best way to ensure your child is safe.
