Brake assist technology increases pressure on brakes when drivers panic, shortening stopping distances and improving safety. It works in conjunction with other security systems and is mandated in new EU vehicles.

Brake assist is technology designed to work when a driver hits the brakes in a panic. Studies have shown that when people brake in a panic, they often fail to apply enough pressure to the brakes. Brake assist increases the pressure on the brakes, shortens stopping distances and improves safety. This security system is designed to work in conjunction with many other security systems in a car to make driving safer in a wide variety of conditions.

Brake assist systems don’t work all the time; For the most part, the car allows the driver to decide when and how hard to brake. However, if the driver takes a foot off the accelerator and steps on the brake pedal, the car will read this as panic braking and engage the brake assist systems. Some cars with collision avoidance systems will actually prime the braking system and even initiate braking automatically to avoid a collision.

There are several issues that brake assist systems need to address. The first is the issue of slow reaction times. People are often slow to react when they spot hazards, braking too late to avoid an accident. The second is not enough pressure; With a brake assist system, the brake is fully applied even when someone’s foot isn’t applying enough pressure. The system is usually combined with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) for added safety.

Brake assist alone will not save people from accidents or prevent accidents. But it can help reduce the incidence of accidents and reduce the severity of accidents. Someone with brake assist, for example, could hit the rear of a car stuck in traffic instead of hitting it. This would mean that the risk of injury is greatly reduced, making the roads a safer place. Damage to the car could also be reduced by minimizing the force of the impact.

The European Union has mandated the installation of brake assist systems in new vehicles, in the belief that it increases safety for drivers and on the roads in general. Brake assist can also entitle people to break your insurance, and is recognized by the insurance company as a passive safety system that will reduce liability. People who pay high rates for auto insurance should definitely ask about discounts for passive restraint systems, as insurance agents don’t always mention such discounts when a policy is first written.
