Some of the new safety features being made available in cars appear to be doing what they're supposed to do: prevent crashes.

FOX News Radio's Jennifer Keiper reports:

Front-end collision warning systems will do the braking for you and adaptive headlights help guide drivers around a corner.

David Zuby, with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tells FOX News Radio that Mercedes Benz and Volo have been pushing the technology for awhile now.

(Zuby) "But we are increasingly seeing it on more and more less expensive cars. I think both Ford and Chrysler offer systems that are like the ones that we studied in this report."

Zuby says the study by two groups supported by the insurance industry shows that systems that brake themselves reduce accidents by 14%. The adaptive headlights, as much as 10%. But systems that let you know when you're drifting out of a lane haven't been as effective.
