Yes, your older car can have some of the latest and greatest safety technology, provided you're willing to spend the time and money. Today's cars have some truly amazing tech that can save lives -- but only as long as it is installed in your vehicle.
In fact, some of these technologies are so helpful that the National Transportation Safety Board wants to see items like backup cameras, blind spot detection, emergency assistance calls, lane departure warnings, and forward collision avoidance systems to be standard on all cars, not just high-end vehicles. It's happening, too. As of now, all 2018 vehicles sold in the United States will have standard backup cameras, and most new vehicles will have automatic braking systems by 2022.
