On Monday, February 3 the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) announced plans to further develop technology that will improve the safety of drivers.
The new proposed technology is called vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technology. It will allow for direct communication between cars which could decrease car accidents by 80 percent and improve traffic flow.
NHTSA said several car makers are already designing their cars to include the technology. The NHTSA will likely push a regulatory proposal to require new cars have V2V technology in the near future.

Chrysler hasn’t yet enforced a recall for 1.56 million Jeep vehicles that could pose a fire hazard to drivers and passengers.
Chrysler announced the recall last June after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigated some complaints over the affected Jeeps. Neither Chrysler, nor Jeep commented on the delayed enforcement of the recall.
In order to improve the safety of the vehicle, a trailer hitch will be installed to protect the gas tank from damage and fire. Owners of the affected vehicles were told in a letter last December that Chrysler is currently in the process of producing the parts needed for repairs.
