These technologies may only be available on certain vehicle models. They may be standard or you might need to request the option. The manufacturer may have different names for the technology. Be sure to check with the manufacturer for further information.
Some manufacturers use several warning systems to help with crash avoidance. So it is important that drivers get to know and understand the various systems in their vehicles.
Remember, even though vehicles may have many new advanced driver assistance systems, you still have to drive safely, pay attention and follow the rules of the road.
