Two years ago, automaker Lexus said it is working on an idea of a future car that will never have an accident.
The company was using an advanced driving simulator to enable its engineers to design technology that will help make driving safer.
Today, on the 30th anniversary of the mandatory seatbelt law, experts express similar views while expecting completely crash-proof cars by 2020.

Thirty years ago, seatbelts became mandatory for drivers and front seat passengers in the UK. Now auto market analysts inform that auto-piloted, self-driving, crash-proof cars could be on our roads by 2020.
Such cars will feature City Safety, a system that uses a sensor to warn the driver of an impending frontal collision before eventually performing an emergency stop on the driver’s behalf.
Moreover, collision avoidance technology is already being tested by carmaker Volvo. The company hopes to start rolling out this technology in the next few years.
