Vehicle safety features are so important that if everyone drove a five-star safety rated vehicle, road trauma could be reduced by up to half.

In this lesson, students are introduced to different types of vehicle safety features. They explore how safety features can help avoid crashes or protect road users who are involved in a crash, and then consider which features they’d like to see in vehicles of the future, and why.
