On Switzerland's roads is becoming safer. At least the new Figures from the Federal office for roads (Astra), which were published this week show. The long-term Trend is clear: There are fewer deaths and less serious injuries.
The streets. also a safer place because of the Sensors and cameras that are now installed in almost every car So-called driver assistance systems brakes autonomously if a car gets too close to the vehicle in front. Or they automatically block a wheel, to keep the track – for example, if the car threatens to slide out of a curve. A study by the insurance group Axa revealed that there are Volvo XC60 with series regular emergency brake assistant compared to similar models without this tool, a third less rear-end collisions.
But of all things, when Parking the technical tools do nothing. "We have not been able to demonstrate that thanks to the Parking sensors fewer accidents when Parking and Maneuvering can be caused," says Bettina Zahnd, head of the Axa accident research. "Parking AIDS don't work per se – they are a big disappointment."
The Maneuver often is the pages torn
How many parkieru there are cases in Switzerland, in fact, not covered. The Astra registered only accidents that were reported to the police. 2018, or roughly 6500. In addition, however, tens of thousands of minor accidents, scratches and dents. Solely by the insurance group Allianz Suisse these cases are exploding: From 2009 to 2016, the collisions have An at - or Ausparkieren to nearly 27'000 tripled.
The accident researchers at the Allianz for the increase in the parkieru cases, especially the widening of the cars to be responsible. Also, the narrow side window in the SUV played a role – the view of A when - and Ausparkieren worse.
the accident researcher Zahnd leave, sees another reason: Many parkieru cases happened outside of the sensor's range, she says. This means that There are Sensors in the rear and the front of the car when Manoeuvring, the driver tear but in General, the pages. Moreover, the drivers often leave the technology. So there are, according to Zahnd always re-Arm, specify in the accident logs, you would have heard the warning sound – you would have to leave the Park but want it on their supposedly better sense.
The accident researcher hopes that soon more technology will be installed in the cars. This could lead to a reduction in accidents. Possible solutions are, according to Zahnd Sensors that cover the space around the vehicle. Or "Parking AIDS, the brake intervention and the vehicle".
