Here at Prestige Car Audio & Marine in Metairie, we take driver safety very seriously. Whenever new technology hits the market that can help with collision avoidance, we immediately start investigating it. New model vehicles themselves do a better job of protecting us in an accident compared to years ago, but they don’t make us safer drivers. Blind spot systems and forward collision alert systems from Prestige can help make you a safer driver and avoid what could be a life-altering accident.
Blind Spot Systems Alert You to Vehicles Beside You
While attempting to change lanes, you sometimes hear a horn honk, alerting you that someone is in your blind spot. You may have looked intently in your mirrors and over your shoulder, but sometimes you just don’t see that vehicle. That’s where the blind spot sensors from Prestige can help. We hide two radar-based sensors strategically in the rear of your vehicle that pick up on people in your blind spot. If another vehicle comes into that area, a visual indicator begins blinking on that side. If the problem is someone on your left, the left indicator flashes. If someone is on your right, the right one begins flashing. If you engage your turn signal, you now get an audible indicator as well, giving you a second line of defense for avoiding an accident.
Forward Collision Alert Systems Keep You Focused on the Road Ahead
During your travels, you might be engaged in a lively conversation with the person beside you or with one of your kids in the back seat. As you become slightly distracted, you unwittingly edge closer and closer to the vehicle in front of you, or maybe you start to drift out of your lane. Our forward collision warning systems will instantly sound an alert, so you know to put more distance between you and the vehicle ahead or to center your vehicle back in your lane.
Let’s say you’re driving and don’t realize the person in front of you just slammed on their brakes to avoid hitting something in front of them. Your forward collision warning system jumps into action, alerting you to hit the brakes.
Another great feature is pedestrian detection. When you are driving in town and someone on the curb begins to enter the street, you get a warning, allowing you to take action and potentially avoid a traumatic incident.
