Police Officer Shares A Car Safety Feature That The Majority Of People Are Unaware Of

When we buy a car, we think about a lot of things. We think about the model, color, interior, features we need, and all of the flashiness we’d like to see ourselves in. However, we also can’t forget the most important thing: our safety while driving. There’s a reason that car manufacturers continually work and conduct research to make sure they are always on the cutting edge of the latest and greatest safety features.

Although we can’t control how crazy the other folks on the road may be, we can all make sure we are driving a car with best-in-class safety features.

However, the latest and greatest safety features happen to tend to be very high-tech in nature and many people simply don’t know how to use them. Therefore, many of us may be driving around in a car that offers safety features we aren’t even aware exist! Like they always say: if you don’t use it, you lose it!

Fortunately, police officers are becoming aware of this fact. Our boys in blue are there to protect and serve. A lot of them are going above-and-beyond to protect us while we are inside our own vehicles. The more they can help us use features, the fewer accidents that there will be on the street, keeping us all a little safer.


One officer from the Indiana State Police Department loves his job so much that he wanted to make sure people in his community and beyond were taking full advantage of the safety features in their car.

Officer John Perrine decided to use a simple video recording on his own phone to spread the word about a feature that many people don’t even know about.

Officer Perrine starts the video off with a very simple question. He asks people what they would think about learning there’s a feature that can prevent both crashes and horrible road rage. He tells people how this simple safety feature can literally save lives and limit the number of unnecessary accidents.

He goes on, speaking into his camera phone the entire time, to show folks where they can find this feature when they are at the wheel.

Ironically, the video goes on to show him pointing to a simple stick: the turn signal.

He then tells people that they may have to put down their coffee, but the simple act of signaling can truly save lives.
