Since then, there have been astronomical leaps in vehicle safety technologies, making it safer than ever to drive a car in the Chesapeake, VA region. Here at Hall | MileOne Autogroup, both the new and pre-owned cars found at our dealerships are packed to the brim these advanced safety features. Here are three of the most essential safety features to consider when you’re car shopping.

Adaptive Cruise Control: Found in a large amount of the new vehicles in our dealership group, adaptive cruise control uses sensors and radar to lock onto the car ahead and maintain a safe distance by automatically applying the throttle when acceleration is required and the brakes when traffic starts to slow down. This safety features is especially handy on long highway road trips or when driving in heavy congestion in the city.

Lane Departure Warning: Lane departure warning is a new feature that sounds a warning or buzzes your car’s seat or steering wheel when it detects that you are crossing the white lines or unintentionally leaving your lane. The related feature Lane Keep Assist gently steers you back into your lane when you drift out of it.

Rearview Camera: The rearview camera is mostly found on the dashboard or integrated with the rearview mirror. It serves two main purposes, with the first one being to give the driver a clear view of what is behind them and the second behind to prevent pedestrians, children, and animals from being backed into.
