Western Australia has one of the worst road toll rates in the country. With a staggering 154 road deaths already reported by June, marking a 16.9% increase from the previous year, we're confronted with the highest road toll since 2010. The stark reality is that the majority of these tragedies, approximately 75%, are caused by driver error, rendering them preventable.
Government-backed programs and policies only work to a certain extent. It’s still the drivers’ responsibility to do their part to ensure their safety and the well-being of their passengers. There are a lot of things drivers can do to avoid car-related accidents and injuries. One example is driving a vehicle with better safety features, like the new Mazda 3.
Mazda 3 Safety Features: A Closer Look
Built upon Mazda's renowned SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture, the new Mazda 3 sedan combines robust passive safety features with advanced active safety technology, creating a driving experience where safety isn't an option; it's a given.
Decked with an array of top-tier safety features including:
Anti-lock brakes (ABS)
Stability Control, Seven airbags
Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)
Lane Departure Warning and Lane-Keep Assist System (LDW/LAS)
Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)
Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC),
The Mazda 3 is designed to aid drivers and significantly reduce the risk of fatal crashes.
Traction Control System: Enhancing Vehicle Control
The Mazda 3 is equipped with an intelligent Traction Control System, an important piece of its Dynamic Stability Control feature. This innovative system optimises grip and stability, improving handling on different road surfaces and various driving conditions. This feature complements the Anti-lock Braking System, offering drivers improved control and stability, particularly in challenging driving scenarios.
Smart Brake Support: Mitigating Collision Risks
Adding to the Smart City Brake Support feature, Mazda has also equipped the Mazda 3 with the Smart Brake Support system. This ingenious system is designed to work at a wider range of speeds, using radar to detect vehicles, and even pedestrians, on the road ahead. Should a potential risk be detected, the system issues a warning and, if necessary, can apply the brakes automatically to prevent or mitigate a collision.
Parking Made Easy with Rear Parking Sensors
Navigating through tight spaces and crowded parking lots can be daunting. That's where the rear parking sensors in the Mazda 3 come in. These sensors help drivers gauge the distance between the vehicle and potential obstacles, making parking a breeze. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert system complements this feature, alerting the driver of approaching vehicles when reversing out of parking spots.
High Beam Control: Optimum Visibility for Safe Night Driving
To enhance visibility during night driving, the Mazda 3 features High Beam Control. This technology automatically switches between high and low beams depending on the presence of other vehicles and the surrounding lighting conditions, ensuring optimum illumination without blinding other drivers.
Head Restraints: Prioritizing Passive Safety
Understanding the importance of passive safety features, Mazda has designed adjustable head restraints for the Mazda 3, aiming to prevent whiplash injuries during an accident. Combined with the multiple airbags, these head restraints significantly enhance the safety quotient of the vehicle.
Brake Assist: Maximizing Safety in Emergencies
To further aid drivers during emergencies, Mazda has incorporated the Brake Assist system in the new Mazda 3. This system recognizes panic braking scenarios and increases the braking force to minimize the stopping distance, reducing the potential of a collision.
Adaptive Cruise Control: The Future of Safe Distance Driving
Mazda's cutting-edge Adaptive Cruise Control technology, which comes as a part of Mazda Radar Cruise Control, takes cruise control to the next level. This feature maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically adjusting the speed, making long drives safer and more comfortable.
Taking Safety to Blind Spots
Complementing the Blind Spot Monitoring system, the Mazda 3 also features the Lane Departure Warning System. Together, these features keep a watchful eye on the blind spots and the vehicle's position within its lane. If the system detects the car veering from its lane or a vehicle in the blind spot, it alerts the driver, making every journey safer.
