U.S. automakers join together to prevent auto crashes

Nearly all U.S. vehicles will be equiped with automatic emergency braking systems by September 2022. Major automakers plan to announce they have agreed on this decision. 

Adding the technology could prevent thousands of crashes a year. The final agreement on this decision includes automakers representing more than 99 percent of U.S. light vehicle sales. Among those joining the deal are Toyota Motor Corp., General Motors, Ford Motor Co., Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Honda Motor Co. and Volkswagen AG .

Automatic emergency braking includes systems designed to prevent crashes in which drivers do not apply the brakes or fail to apply enough braking power to avoid a collision. Automakers will get slightly longer to add the technology to some vehicles with technical challenges, including some cars with manual transmissions. 

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a group that helped reach the voluntary agreement with automakers, has said as many as 20 percent of crashes could be prevented by the technology. That's 5 million crashes every year -- 20 percent reduction means 1 million less. The numbers are really impressive. However it could take at least eight years to get legally binding rules in place.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
