If you pay attention to the news, you've probably seen some scary headlines: car and plane crashes, trains going off the tracks, and more. But the truth is, these kinds of accidents are rare. Engineers have designed features that make vehicles as safe as possible. Antilock brakes, the global positioning system, and sonar navigation equipment are just a few of the improvements that help people travel more safely. Learn more about how the technology in vehicles works to keep us safe.
