How Car Safety Features Work to Keep You Safe


Part of driving a vehicle in California is making sure that, in the event of a collision, you and your passengers are protected. Advanced safety features aim to help your visibility and reaction time to avoid collisions and keep you and your family safe on the road. At Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM , we are committed to educating you about the best safety features out there and we’ll show you how they work in our cars when you go out for a test drive.

Safety Features and How They Work

One standard safety feature that may come to mind is an airbag system. Airbags protect you from getting injured in the event of a crash by deploying the bags if the car detects a collision. Many cars now offer occupant sensing airbags to ensure that they aren’t used if someone isn’t sitting in a given seat.

Other standard features include anti-lock brakes that prevent the brakes from locking when you press down the brake pedal and visibility systems, like blind-spot monitoring, that allow you to better see when a car or object gets too close.

Safety Features in Our Cars


The car brands we offer provide many of these safety features and more. The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee incorporates the ParkSense® system that features rear parking sensors and a blind spot monitoring system to help with visibility.

Our Los Angeles Dodge dealers understand the importance of protecting you and your family with the latest safety features. That’s why, we’ll put you behind the wheel of a new Jeep SUV or RAM truck and talk you through your financing options. It’s always a key idea to keep safety at the top of your priority list when shopping for a new car.
