What is the definition of car safety?

What does car safety entail? I know that car safety is important when you purchase a vehicle, but I'm not sure what it actually means.

“Car safety is an all-encompassing term that defines everything that helps you avoid accidents or mitigate damage in the event of an accident.
Components of car safety include:
  • Advanced safety features such as lane-keep assist or adaptive cruise control
  • Air bags
  • Anti-lock brakes
  • Seat belts
In addition to car safety, you can also have supplemental products that can keep you safe such as car insurance or medical payments. Although these technically aren’t car safety items in themselves, they are part of the all-encompassing process to keep you and your vehicle safe.
