All new cars will be packed with significantly more life-saving safety equipment than ever before within three years - if Europe's lawmakers get their own way. The European Commission is pushing for the mandatory fitment of 11 pieces of technology designed to prevent or mitigate accidents - and save an estimated 7,300 lives in the next decade. These include autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assistance and fatigue monitoring systems, all of which could feature on every new car from 2021 under proposals. The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS) said the new ruling would be a 'free lunch' for the UK Government, reducing road casualties and saving billions of pounds without requiring any investment.
