Collision Avoidance Systems Can Help Police


May 04, 2020

USA- The safety of police officers when they are on the road is a major concern for law enforcement professionals, according to STATETECHMAGAZINE.COM. Traffic accidents are one of the main causes of on-duty police fatalities. In 2018, 31 percent of officers killed on duty died in vehicle-related incidents, including car crashes or motorcycle accidents.*

New safety features that help drivers avoid collisions may be able to greatly reduce the risk of these tragic events. When officers are driving to emergencies, a crash can prevent them from responding to the situation. Police radios, radar detection, computers, and phones are all being used to relay as much information as possible about emergency situations. More collisions are occurring because officers are distracted, often by their own technology. Some are saying that while technology is creating the problem, it can also be the solution. 

Driver assistance systems are making the operation of motor vehicles safer. These features can prevent drivers from drifting into other lanes, detect people or cars in a blind spot, and control the distance between the car and other vehicles to help prevent crashes. 

About 800 police vehicles in Polk County are using technology that alerts officers of risks and the need for drivers to focus completely on the road. After installing the added safety features, there has been a drop in rear-end collisions.
