Wellness/Prevention: Visibility Enhancement Systems May Not Improve Driver Safety.

While it’s logical that technological advances to improve roadway visibility should always reduce a driver’s risk of hitting an unseen obstacle, new research published in the Journal of Safety Research claims otherwise. In the study, drivers in cars equipped with a Visibility Enhancement System were more confident, less stressed, drove faster, and had nearly twice as many collisions with unexpected obstacles than drivers in cars without such technology. Journal of Safety Research, June 2014 Quote: “One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.” ~ Lewis Carroll
