Earlier this week, Honda was honored as a Highway Safety Hero by the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety for Advancing Pedestrian Safety. Honda was the only automaker that received the award along with 26 current and former members of congress, eights state officials and 14 citizen activists for efforts to save lives, prevent injuries and make roads safer, according to a press release published by Honda.
As part of its commitment to keeping drivers safe, Honda has led the U.S. in safety and driver technologies including features that aim to reduce injuries in a collision, such as collapsible hood hinges and breakaway windshield wiper pivots.
Additionally, Honda has become the leader in adding rearview cameras. More than 94 percent of Honda and Acura models sold in the U.S. in 2013 were equipped with standard rearview cameras. No other brand has as many models equipped with standard rearview cameras for the 2014 model year and by the 2015 model year.
