(Los Angeles Times) – Looking to curb rear-end collisions, federal safety regulators announced plans Thursday to add two new features to a list of recommended safety technologies.

The move by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is also the first step in potentially mandating the braking features on all vehicles in the future.

“I want this department, the entire automotive industry and other innovators to keep raising the bar on safety like we are doing now,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, who oversees the Department of Transportation and NHTSA.

Both features relate to automatic emergency braking and are already available on numerous vehicles — many of them from luxury brands.
