Four Safety Features to Help You Drive in Traffic with Less Stress

Drive in traffic with less stress

In Newfoundland and Labrador, we are fortunate to not have traffic jams like the ones you see in cities like Toronto or New York City! That being said, driving to and from work in St. John's, Corner Brook, or other communities, or driving to the cabin on a long weekend requires drivers to be especially alert, and can sometimes create stressful driving experiences.

Ford features, like the four listed below, provide innovative radar technology that supports the driver in making safe decisions, to help avoid possible accidents and make potentially stressful drives more enjoyable.

Adapting to the road ahead of you.

Your vehicle has an available feature that helps you maintain a safe, consistent distance from the vehicle in front of you. Adaptive Cruise Control does everything that normal cruise control does, and more.

When you accelerate to your desired speed and set cruise control in place, its adaptive radar technology constantly scans for slower vehicles in front of you. Upon detection, it will automatically adjust your speed to maintain a safe gap.

You have the ability to choose the length of the gap you'd like your vehicle to maintain, to match your driving style and level of comfort. Once traffic clears, your vehicle will return to your previously set speed.

Extra support with blind spot detection.

Many Ford vehicles have a feature that is designed to alert you when a vehicle is approaching your blind spot, or approaching from the side, when you are backing up. BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) turns on when you start driving and remains active, even if you aren't moving.

A light will come on in the top corresponding corner of your side mirror, and will stay on until the vehicle is no longer in your blind spot.

Cross-Traffic Alert warns you of moving cars coming from either side as you are backing up or out of a parking spot. It will give you three kinds of warnings, in order to catch your attention. A light will turn on in the corresponding top corner of your mirror, a chime will ring, and a message will appear in your vehicle's message centre.

While extreme weather conditions may block your sensors, your vehicle has the ability to detect and warn you when it isn't active. Talk about intuitive!
