Safety bodies such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration constantly upgrade their rating, forcing automotive producers to make cars safer in order to receive the top score and it is now time for the NHTSA to introduce a new move of this kind.
The Administration is currently looking to introduce a reward system for safety avoidance technology, as Wards Automotive reports. It seems that the NHTSA hasn’t offered any details about the technologies that will be rewarded or the way in which this will happen.

One important connection leads to vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication systems, which the NHTSA considers could reduce fatalities by from 33,000 per year to 20,000, with the administration currently testing this together with multiple automotive producers, trying to find a way to make this work in the real world.
