It used to be that bells and whistles that made cars safer were only for the high rollers. No more. Today's NY Times highlights what Detroit and others are offering drivers in new cars to make them safer and easier to drive. Among the toys are: cameras that see behind you and steering that can help prevent or correct a skid. Pretty cool, huh?
What's key here is that the automotive industry recognizes that the needs of drivers is changing. People want to stay mobile as long as possible and "smarter" cars can help them do just that.
