Starting Today, All Cars In Europe Can Call The Police Themselves

After a road accident, most people won’t have a cool enough head to do everything exactly right. They may forget which number to call for an emergency, or they may wait too long to call it. The accident may have been so severe that they are unable to call for help themselves, either because they are unconscious or trapped.

But starting today, drivers in Europe won’t have to worry about that scenario because new cars will be equipped with a technology called eCall, through which vehicles will call the police themselves after a road accident.
