Making the roads a safer place

The U.S. Department of Transportation is determined to create a safer driving experience.  In an effort to prevent accidents, they recently granted the University of Michigan $14.9 million to test the use of short-range radio in vehicles.

Short-range radio waves will allow cars to communicate with each other and traffic signals. How will short-range radios keep you safer on the road? If you and another driver on a crash course towards each other, both drivers will be alerted. If testing goes well, you may see this safe technology in a car near you within the next ten years.
