Drivers Expect Apple and Google to Improve Car Safety [INFOGRAPHIC]

Drivers Expect Apple and Google to Improve Car Safety [INFOGRAPHIC]

Seriously.  I am a bit surprised myself at this one, but according to car safety review site CarSafetyRules.com who surveyed 1,000 UK drivers – found that consumers have more faith in tech firms like Apple and Google than car brands like Volvo or Mercedes to improve vehicular protection.

47.2% said smartphones have made drivers more distracted.

35.4% assume pedestrians don’t pay as much attention.

21% named Apple as the brand most likely to develop technologies to improve road safety, followed by Google at 19.8%,  Volvo at 19.7%

When broken down by sex, Apple top the charts with 26% women, and 17% men who expect them to improve car safety.

 

Most respondents chose crash prevention braking and pre-crash alerts as the most attractive safety technologies, with apps that warn cars of dangers ranked fifth, followed by an auto-pilot system.
