We had the opportunity to speak with Wayne Powell, VP of electronic systems for Toyota North America. Wayne explained the Toyota Safety Sense Systems and the goal of no accidents that drives Toyota’s efforts.

The Safety sense system includes collision avoidance, automatic high beam headlamps, lane keeping and warning, active distance keeping cruise control and pedestrian warning. combined they help make us safer drivers and help older drivers continue to safely drive.

The best thing about the system is that it is included at no extra cost on most of Toyota’s lineup, not just offered as an option on the high end models.
