Keep Your Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Calibrated For A Smoother And Safer Driving Experience

A vehicle's ability to automate tasks is becoming more and more common these days, with some cars even offering something akin to a fully-automated driving experience. But even a "standard" car today uses some level of ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance System ranging from your windshield wipers turning on when it rains to a computer automatically adjusting your vehicle if you start to drift out of your lane.

This technology can make your driving experience safer and more convenient, but tech like this can also use an occasional tune-up just like the rest of your car. Sensors can become dirty over time, or they might get jostled a bit every time you go over a pothole. For best results, it's a good idea to take your vehicle in for ADAS calibration maybe once a year or so, or as soon as you start noticing a problem.

You Can't Afford Even One Mistake With Something Like Lane Assist or Emergency Braking

If you have sensors on your car that help you stay in the correct lane when cruising on the highway or a sensor that will automatically brake for you if a kid walks out in front of your car while you are moving slowly down a residential street, one time when either of these systems fail to work properly is one time too many. Some assistance systems can offer a high level of safety and convenience, but it could actually make you a bit less safe if you just expect them to work and then they suddenly don't get the job done. Regular calibration is key to maximizing your safety out on the road.

Enjoy Peace of Mind Out on the Road Following Your Calibration

If you've noticed issues with your lane assist or another automated feature that uses sensors around your vehicle, you might feel uneasy about leaving that feature turned on. By getting your driving systems properly calibrated, you'll have more peace of mind about leaving the systems turned on and you'll be able to relax a bit more as you go down the road instead of tensing up when a car passes by you or cuts in front of you because you're not sure if your systems are going to respond properly or not.

Turn to a Professional to Fine Tune Your Automated Comfort and Safety Systems While on the Road

Make regular ADAS calibration a part of your ongoing car maintenance just like how you get an oil change every so often or get your tires rotated. These systems are just as important to your day-to-day driving in some cases as your more traditional car parts, so it's important to keep them fine-tuned and calibrated like every other part of your car.
