Accident

In 09/2009 I had a accident with my 2007 Ford Edge, 35 mph rear end collision. I was amazed how little damage was visible. No leaking fluids, All head lights and fog lights were intact. I was able to drive the car home myself. The Car in front of me was Towed from the scene. I had my seat belt on, although my Air bags never deployed. That was a lease, 2months later, I bought a new 2010 Ford Edge of my own. All Drivers were reported to be OK at the scene by Paramedics, no one needed medical care, that was good. I Consider the Ford Edge a VERY Safe Car, well built and fun to drive. I will recommend a Ford Edge to anyone interested in a SAFE & WELL BUILT CAR.

I am a paramedic and have worked in the emergency medical services for over twenty years and have seen a lot of great changes in the safety aspects of car design. As you already know, driver distraction is becoming or may already be the number one cause of vehicle accidents. Because of this I have wondered what could be done to increase driver's incentive to maintain proper control of their vehicles and minimize driver distractions. In emergency vehicle driving courses we are taught to drive two handed with a 10 and 2 o'clock hand positioning at all times. This is to ensure that we have adequate control over the vehicle as well as to reduce injuries should there be an airbag deployment from a collision. Some insurance companies offer devices to monitor safe driving activities in order to give the customer an option to drive safer and possibly save on their insurance premiums.I was curious as to why couldn't automobile manufacturers incorporate something similar to what the insurance companies are doing into the steering wheel of an automobile. A device similar to what you find on exercise equipment handles that reads a person's heart rate. Flat stainless steel sensors positioned at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel that could read when the person was driving with two hands on the wheel. As an added desirable benefit, the vehicle would obtain greater gas mileage if the driver maintained this hand positioning. Of course audible alarms or messages could also be incorporated to be activated when the driver removes their hands from these positions. I am not an engineer, but think that with the computer technology that is already incorporated into automobiles these days, that something of this nature would be easily accomplished and if it saved lives it would be a great safety option to be placed on vehicles.
