It may be worth it if you drive in a large city everyday where accidents are a regular occurrence.

Now your car can answer messages for you, block calls while your driving and show you your texts on your dash so you have your hands free. This can save a lot of lives and injuries for those who can’t put their phones down. Try these new features and apps to save you from crashing and causing problems for yourself.
Add a crash pack to your car. Place a bag with a pen, paper, registration, and tips to remember in an accident into your glove box so you can record information if you are ever hit. Having a tip sheet helps a lot because when you are flustered you don’t remember everything. Always remember to take photos of the vehicles and the area to ensure it is all documented especially if the first responders do not need to arrive you will be the only one recording information besides the other party.
