Safety

Global Automakers' members are developing the next generation of safety technologies and introducing innovations such as lane-departure warning systems, collision mitigation systems, and active front head restraints. Our members lead the industry in helping reduce the risk of accidental injuries to children by voluntarily installing push-down/pull-up power window switches and brake-transmission shift interlocks, in advance of federal regulations.

In addition to advancing vehicle technologies, Global Automakers are dedicated to addressing safety problems associated with driver behavior. We support restrictions on the use of hand-held electronic devices for phone calls and text messaging by drivers while operating motor vehicles. Our member companies are taking a comprehensive approach to automotive safety addressing both protection and prevention.
