  1. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com November 15, 2012 The National Transportation Safety Board announced their 2013 Most Wanted safety list which is used to "increase awareness of, and support for, the most critical changes needed to reduce transportation accidents and save lives." On this year's list, the NTSB put "Collision-Avoidance" technologies to be standard on all new vehicles. What the NTSB means by "Collision-Avoidance" technologies are features like rear-end collision warning, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and advanced braking systems. Most of these features are either standard or optional on luxury vehicles or high-trim models. The NTSB wants to see these features on new models. The NTSB cites data from NHTSA which says forward collision warning can prevent 879 fatal car crashes annually and lane departure warning can prevent 247 fatal crashes annually. "What they are recommending is a safety system for cars where you have a multitude of things that cooperate together to dramatically improve safety in a vehicle," said Clarence Ditlow, executive director of the Center for Auto Safety. Automakers aren't happy with this suggestion, saying that adding this equipment to their vehicle could add thousands to the base price. The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers say collision warning systems could add between $1,000 to $3,000 per vehicle, while collision warning systems that activate the brakes cost around $3,500 per vehicle. The NTSB shot back to the claims of the Alliance saying that "many of the safety features rely on the same electronic sensors and computers." "Some of this technology can be done for literally just a few dollars. I don't think we're talking about adding thousands of dollars to a car," said NTSB board member Robert Sumwalt.
