What Bergen's Auto Body Clients Say ...

"Bergen’s is an “A” One Business in Regina Saskatchewan. I needed body work done due to a person hitting my vehicle in a parking lot. While the vehicle was in their shop, I asked them to replace the front windshield also. During the time my vehicle was in their shop, they supplied me with updates as to the progress of the repairs, which I greatly appreciated. Their work is top notch; in my opinion, the BEST in Regina! They not only returned my vehicle with the body work completed and my car looking fabulous, but they returned my vehicle in immaculate condition. Washed, and not a spec of dust. The Bergen’s guarantee superb workmanship, and they deliver! Thank You!" - Patricia Knapp- Google

"Wow!! These guys are AWESOME! Did an SGI claim through them, they kept me up to date the entire time, I got texts every step along the way of the repair and they finished it sooner than I anticipated. But wow it looks amazing inside and outside of the car! I was letting my brother use my car and it was starting to get stinky in there and they even cleaned the interior. I am so happy, my expectations have really been exceeded!" - Sarah S - Google

Bergens AutoBody Trusted Regina Auto Body Tip On Collision Avoidance Technology

Bergens Auto Body is a Regina family collision repair and auto body shop and from the moment you call you will be treated like family! They are proud to have an amazing 80 Years Auto Body Experience, and they have been serving Regina Auto Body needs for over 30 Years....they have a loyal customer base that simply wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

Collision- avoidance is advanced technology available on an ever-growing range of vehicles.

Could you ever have imagined a time in your life when your car would be able to “see” other vehicles or pedestrians?  This amazing technology is now readily available, and that means many new cars and trucks can now anticipate collisions, and automatically apply the brakes or take corrective steering actions!!

Some of these capabilities, such as forward-collision warning systems, have been around for a few years, mostly on high-end luxury cars. Others, like steering assist, are just getting added. We are happy to share that collision-avoidance systems are getting better and are spreading to mainstream cars.

Radar, Cameras and Lasers Utilized in Collision Avoidance Systems

These cutting-edge active safety systems rely on a number of sensors, cameras, lasers, and short- and long-range radar. They monitor what is going on around the vehicle—vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and even road signs—as well as the vehicle itself. Inputs are processed by computers, which then prompt some action from the car or the driver. Those actions may start with attention-grabbers, such as a beep, a flashing dashboard icon, a tug from the seatbelt, or a vibration in the seat or steering wheel. If the driver doesn’t respond, the more advanced systems then apply partial or full braking force. If a warning system emits too many inappropriate alerts, however, then there is an increasing temptation to switch it off.

“In the end, these systems can do a lot of good in preventing crashes from happening in the first place. But it’s still very important for drivers to realize that no matter how much collision-avoidance technology is on your vehicle it never reduces the need to stay alert at all time.” Jon Bergen
