Our Bronx area Nissan dealer has a tool for you when you feel “legit” done with driving for the day. The brand has come up with a “Driver Attention Alert” that helps detect erratic driving caused by drowsiness and inattention. If you are on a long road trip flying solo, we’re sure this will come in handy. Everyone needs a break from driving once and a while and this technology takes it up a notch to let you know just when you’ve hit your limits. Safety should always be taken into account not just for you, but for others around you.
According to a November 2014 study done by the AAA, 37 percent of drivers report having fallen asleep while driving at some point in their lives, with 11 percent having done so in the past year. That is a scary statistic to come to terms with on the road. In addition to that, AAA says that one-in-five fatal crashes are a result of drowsy driving. This new technology will do its best to prevent those statistics from rising.
The all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima, coming out this summer, is going to be featuring this new alert system as an option. Right now, the 2015 Nissan Murano is making it available too. The system will adapt to the individual driver and input patterns using steering angle sensors to establish a baseline. It is still the driver’s ability to remain alert at all times, but the technology in place is meant to warn and inform the driver of a potential lack of driver attention or drowsiness.
