How Can Collisions Damage Safety Systems?

One of the most common types of safety system damage during a collision occurs to the sensors and cameras outside your vehicle. Many of the modern safety systems we rely on use radar and LIDAR sensors to alert us to obstacles, and they are often located in areas prone to collisions. Even your car’s backup camera is easily damaged if your car is rear-ended.

In many cases, these sensors and cameras can be adjusted or easily recalibrated, but the systems themselves can be pretty sensitive. Even if you don’t have any other damage to your vehicle, it’s a good idea to inspect your safety systems after a collision.

Why Might My Safety Systems Need Repairs?

Collisions and external damage from inclement weather conditions are the primary reasons your vehicle’s safety systems may need repairs, but there are others. Because the safety systems in our vehicles are so interconnected with other in-vehicle technologies, even repairs can cause problems if they’re not performed correctly.

For instance, if your windshield is replaced due to damage, you may need to have your vehicle’s safety systems recalibrated. Most headlights also rely on sensors and must be recalibrated after repairs.
