    Car Safety Guide – What is the safest executive car?

    Car safety is a top priority for drivers as it is impossible to predict what will happen on the road. Whiplash and head injuries are common in car accidents but NCAP conduct tests on many vehicles to determine what kind of protection they have put in place in anticipation of a crash. NCAP test for the protection provided in the event of a side-on crash, in the event of a crash into a pole or tree and into another vehicle to give consumers an idea of how safe the car is. They also conduct whiplash tests to determine how well the seat protects against this type of injury. According to NCAP, the safest executive car is the BMW 5 Series which has a total of six airbags and stability control included in the standard model. There are other optional safety features including headlamps which clearly identify pedestrians and adaptive cruise control among others. The car scored highly in the Safety Assist category which enables drivers to control their speed and it also scored high for adult and child safety. Although this car is top in its category, accidents still have the potential to happen on the road so it pays to stay aware of your surroundings.

    Potential road accidents and injuries

    Crashes and collisions can occur due to other drivers or even due to careless pedestrians so keeping to the speed limit will ensure that you can brake quickly should something unusual occur. If another driver collides into the rear of your vehicle, you may sustain a whiplash injury although this may not be too severe with the protection provided within the BMW 5 Series. If you do sustain any kind of injury due to a crash that was someone else’s fault, then you may be entitled to some compensation to help you financially. Accident Advice Helpline can assist with this where there is evidence of negligence.
