Los Angeles Times - November 20, 2011

At the Los Ange­les Auto Show a num­ber of car­mak­ers high­light­ed new safe­ty fea­tures focus­ing on pre­vent­ing acci­dents rather than mere­ly sur­viv­ing them. New fea­tures unveiled includ­ed lane-depar­ture and blind-spot warn­ing tech­nol­o­gy on the Ford Explor­er and a vir­tu­al bumper fea­ture on the Cadil­lac XTS. The addi­tion­al fea­tures are need­ed to act on the safe­ty warn­ings when a dri­ver fails to do so.
