Best Automotive Inventions For Which We’re Thankful

November is almost here, which means we will be soon celebrating Thanksgiving, then Christmas, and then finally New Years. Before the holidays are officially here, it is the perfect time to take a moment and remind ourselves why we are so grateful for our vehicles. Here are 4 of the best automotive inventions for which we’re thankful: 

  1. Teen Driver Technology: If you have been worrying about handing the keys over to your teen driver, you won’t have to stress anymore -- teen driver technology comes in with built-in limitations. In fact, teen driver technology will send you alerts if your teen goes over a certain speed, turn off the audio if the seatbelts aren’t on, and keep the volume at a reasonable limit. 
  2. Connected Mobile Apps: Most car markers come with an app that you can easily download. In this app, you will find information about your vehicle. You can also check your fuel and tire levels, unlock your doors, and remotely start your engine in the chiller mornings. Many insurance companies now have apps that also allow you to renew your policy, make payments, and access all your information. 
  3. LED Lights: Many cars are now equipped with LED lights. Not only are these lights brighter, but they also rarely need to be replaced. These lights really brighten the road to help you avoid collisions. 
  4. Rear-Cross Traffic Alert: You may be surprised to learn that the majority of car crashes occur in parking lots! With rear-cross traffic alert, you will get alerts when vehicles are approaching or even pedestrians.
