Driver Assistance Systems
Driver safety aids such as lane departure and forward collision warning systems are helpful features that aren't yet widely available in new cars, and you'll typically find them in higher trims or in costly safety packages. If you want those features in your current car, here's one possible solution. The Safe Drive Systems RD 140 has both these features, but it isn't cheap. The pricing isn't listed on the site, but Consumer Reports says the basic system with collision warning costs about $1,100 installed and $1,700 for the top-of-the-line version with lane departure warning. Still, this tech upgrade is less expensive than buying a new car.
