  1. Truck Tool Boxes

Having a trusty truck toolbox lying inside your vehicle is a true mark of a responsible driver. It’s more like a first-aid kit for your car. It is always much better for you to have enough storage for those tools that you’ll need in case your car suddenly stops in the middle of nowhere while traveling.

Most of the vehicular accidents, especially those resulting in unfortunate fatalities were all caused by human error. Fortunately, several auto-technologies were developed to limit or even mitigate human errors through some features that make the car responsive to potential dangers.

Notable examples include the following:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control – Enables the vehicle to sense upcoming obstacles on the road and automatically adjusts the car’s speed to maintain a safe following distance.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) – As the name suggests, ABS allows the braking system to work as efficiently as possible for situations like emergency brakes.
  • Adaptive Headlights – Helps the driver to get better visibility on the road at night, especially on dark and curved terrains.


  1. Drowsy Driving Alert Systems

Getting sleepy while driving is also one of the major causes of car crashes every year. In fact, it could even be more dangerous than drunk driving. Whatever the reason might be, drowsing driver alert systems are there to prevent drivers from falling asleep as well as enhances attentiveness to the driving tasks.


  1. In-Car Coffee Machine

The last one on this list might be a bit shocking to some but having a built-in coffee machine on your car saves you a lot of troubles. Coffee stimulates your brain to be more active hence improving your focus while on the road. Second is that it helps you conserve more time so that you don’t have to stop over a convenience store just to grab a cup of joe. However, always remember to drink in moderation.
