    Are there any car classified sites that allow a shopper to add safety systems into the search experience? I can't find one.

    User Story: My job is going well and we've just had our 1st child. I want to protect my family with the best system I can find. Where can I go to help me reduce and focus my consideration set?
    User Story: My elderly father is still driving, but I see he's less aware than he used to be. He needs a new car with the best safety system made.


    A list of safety systems from Consumer Reports:
    1. Automatic emergency braking (AEB): Brakes are automatically applied to prevent a collision or reduce collision speed.
    2. Forward-collision warning (FCW): Visual and/or audible warning intended alert the driver and prevent a collision.
    3. Blind-spot warning (BSW): Visual and/or audible notification of vehicle in blind spot. The system may provide an additional warning if you use your turn signal when there is a car next to you in another lane.
    4. Rear cross-traffic warning: Visual, audible, or haptic notification of object or vehicle out of rear camera range, but could be moving into it.
    5. Rear automatic emergency braking (Rear AEB): Brakes are automatically applied to prevent backing into something behind the vehicle. This could be triggered by the rear cross-traffic system, or other sensors on the vehicle.
    6. Lane-departure warning (LDW): Visual, audible, or haptic warning to alert the driver when they are crossing lane markings.
    7. Lane-keeping assist (LKA): Automatic corrective steering input or braking provided by the vehicle when crossing lane markings.
    8. Lane-centering assist: Continuous active steering to stay in between lanes (active steer, autosteer, etc.)
    9. Adaptive cruise control: Adaptive cruise uses lasers, radar, cameras, or a combination of these systems to keep a constant distance between you and the car ahead, automatically maintaining a safe following distance. If highway traffic slows, some systems will bring the car to a complete stop and automatically come back to speed when traffic gets going again, allowing the driver to do little more than pay attention and steer.
