The National Safety Council and the University of Iowa have teamed up to create a campaign called My Car Does What.
 
MyCarDoesWhat.org is a national campaign to help educate drivers on new vehicle safety technologies designed to help prevent crashes.  These technologies range from increasing the stability and control of cars to providing warnings about crash threats to automatically intervening to avoid or reduce the severity of a crash.
 
In the past few years, it has been recognized that the world of driving safety has started to change rapidly around us.  New car safety technologies are being added to cars faster than any earlier generation.  Even features that have been around for years are getting smarter and changing into new features entirely.  Some can now even take over our cars to help us avoid crashes.
·         But how do safety features work?
·         When should they be used?
·         Do I have them in my car?
·         How can I find answers to these questions?
·         MyCarDoesWhat.org is a great place to start.
