If you’ve been staying home for the past few months during quarantine, your driving skills might be as rusty as your brake rotors. Thankfully, Nissan and its safety systems are ready to help.

“You use a lot of reflex memory when you operate a vehicle so if you have been off the roads for a while, now is a good time to understand how these features can truly improve the overall driving experience,” explained Chris Reed, Nissan North America’s senior vice president of Research and Development at the Nissan Technical Center. According to Reed, the automaker’s many helpful tech tools can mitigate driving errors and make the road a safer place for everyone.
