Injury Proof Car?? Damn!!

Volvo is already world renown for being one of the safest cars, but now they are taking it to the next level by promising to create a car that will be “injury proof” for passengers in an “almost any” accident by 2020. The Swedish automaker is saying they will fit the car with radar, sonar and other technology to prevent and mitigate crashes. In the event of a crash, when most drivers freeze, the car would steer and brake on its own. Cutting pre-impact speed by even 10 mph would cut the death rate in half, so self-braking systems are key to reducing traffic fatalities.
