Tesla recently released two new security features earlier this month. Twice as traffic withdrawal and emergency deviation, the active safety systems are designed to prevent the driver from accidentally leaving the lanes. These new features seem quite undervalued on paper, but as some members of the Tesla community now find out, Lane Departure Avoidance and Emergency Lane Departure Avoidance may well be among the best active security systems Tesla has introduced to date.
Lane Deviation Deviations and Emergency Deviations Avoidance is mainly extensions of Lane Departure Warning, a security feature that has long been activated on Tesla's vehicles and other popular cars from vintage car manufacturers. The new features work by monitoring and sending a series of alerts if a vehicle is about to leave the roadway. In the event that an unintentional lane is close (for example, a car moving to switch lanes without a turn signal), the active safety feature activates and steers the car back to its original lane.
The reception from Tesla owners, as indicated by activity in social media and in electronic forums, suggests that the two new security features are welcomed positively by society. Owners have given particular praise to the features of the ability to immediately take a vehicle back in the middle of its path, as it reduces the chances of the driver meeting an accident. These were demonstrated by several Tesla owners, some of whom provided video accounts of the active security features in action.

Statistics collected by the electric car manufacturer point to fewer accidents that occur on the road when Autopilot is engaged, and part of this is due to the driver's ability to be in the roadway. These new features are all but make sure Tesla drivers get the same security benefits even when Autopilot is disabled.
Independent lane exits represent a remarkable number of deaths on the road, according to researchers from Unfallforschung der Versicherer (German insurance company accident research). In a study published in 2015, the German researchers discovered that up to 10% of deaths in car accidents involve unintentional lanes. The researchers further concluded that while a significant number of these events were due to distracted driving, over 30% of crashes involving accidental path changes could be attributed to the driver's health problems.
Lane Departure Warning systems have been hailed as one of the most remarkable active safety features introduced for vehicles, ranked up with the seat belt as a system that has the potential to really save lives on the road. Tesla's newly added features combined classic Lane Departure Warning with a flow of Autopilot, resulting in an active security system that is likely to prevent a significant number of crashes involving unintentional path changes. What's even better is that these features were rolled out to the company's vehicles through an over-the-air update, which is completely free for Tesla owners.
