The National Safety Council has partnered with the University of Iowa to launch a new website,, to help educate the driving public about new automotive safety technologies. includes educational videos and other information about a variety of safety technologies, including backup cameras, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking systems. The goal of the website is to teach drivers how to most effectively use these safety technologies.

"The fact is that safety technologies save lives, yet many drivers don’t know what they are or how to use them,” said Deborah Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “Knowledge is power. puts motorists in the driver's seat to make our roads safer.”

“These technologies increase safety and assist drivers by preventing or lessening the severity of crashes,” added Daniel McGehee, director of the Transportation and Vehicle Safety Research Program at the University of Iowa Public Policy Center. MyCarDoesWhat is designed to raise awareness of the technologies and how they can be used to keep us all safer on the roads.”
