The celebrity first said she would release a new song this Friday, but then later said she would first talk about the accident that nearly took her life.
Rethabile described the condition of the automobile following the collision and the damage to her face in a video that was uploaded.
Although the singer is renowned for being secretive, she does share her experiences.
“Don’t punish yourself; instead, give yourself an opportunity to recover and begin to hope again! Because you are more than your shortcomings, they do not define who you are. Trust your skills and allow hope to grow within of you. Future attempts at this will be better! NEW SONG AND COMPLETE STORY COMING ON THE 28TH OF OCTOBER,” she penned.
By 2050, Mercedes-Benz hopes to eradicate accidents involving its vehicles.
By 2050, Mercedes-Benz hopes to have eliminated all collisions involving its vehicles. That sounds ambitious, even though it’s a very distant goal. Nevertheless, the German automaker today announced plans to do just that. Its mission, called “Vision Zero,” states that it seeks to have no traffic fatalities by the midpoint of this century. By halving the 2020 figures by 2030, the corporation also intends to lower the number of individuals killed or badly injured in auto accidents.
How can Mercedes reduce and ultimately stop accidents involving its vehicles? In a press statement, the company’s head of vehicle safety, Paul Dick, stated that “highly automated and autonomous driving would be a crucial contributor.” Of course, a vehicle’s safety features are just one of many contributing factors. Mercedes acknowledges this and the significance of infrastructure, stating that collaboration between federal governments, international organizations, urban planners, and municipal road commissions will be necessary. Have we mentioned how audacious this idea is?
A Safety History
Mercedes-Benz isn’t as closely associated with safety as, say, the Volvo brand. However, it has been developing cutting-edge passive and active safety technologies for decades in its automobiles. After a “moose test” went awry in the late 1990s, Mercedes started standardizing electronic stability control on all of its models, which spread throughout the sector. The business later unveiled Pre-Safe, an anticipatory protection system, at the start of the 2000s, which led to features that assisted lower personal injury after a crash.
Additionally, Mercedes has a long history of using cutting-edge braking control systems. The introduction of anti-lock brakes in 1978 and the addition of traction control in 1985 are among the milestones. In 1996, the business also released a brake-assist system that automatically sensed an emergency and provided maximum braking force. It introduced Distronic adaptive cruise control a few years later. In order to further enhance the responsiveness of its control system, Mercedes plans to release new central software in 2023. Automated emergency braking was first added to Mercedes models in 2009.
The Path to a Future Free of Accidents
Mercedes-Benz faces a challenging future with an ETA of 2050 and a goal of an accident-free future. It is now working on a few initiatives in an effort to lessen accidents and save lives.
One is that the business claims it has been and will continue to evaluate real-world accidents since 1969. Mercedes can work on creating new safety systems to combat accidents by having a deeper grasp of the crash anatomy and how they could have been avoided. The business has more recently begun looking at car data to find potential risk factors and even warn drivers of hazards before they happen.
Mercedes still has a long way to go before the road is completely paved and accident-free. Nevertheless, it has demonstrated a commitment to cutting-edge safety features and appears committed to its objective, which in all honesty began decades ago. We’ll simply have to wait a few more decades to find out if it’s still feasible or not to get into an accident in a Mercedes.
