Driver assistance technology which can help prevent car crashes has been featured in a series of new safety videos.

Launched by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the films feature Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained and discuss the potential lifesaving benefits of several advanced driver assistance systems which are available in many new vehicles.

“Understanding what advanced driver assistance technologies can and cannot do for the driver is critical to everyone’s safety,” said Dr Steven Cliff, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Acting Administrator.

Through his YouTube channel Engineering Explained, Jason Fenske uses his background as a mechanical engineer to help consumers learn about cars and how they work.
