How effective is accident detection?

There are some limits to the technology used: it is not intended as a replacement for a separate emergency call, but instead serves as an additional safeguard and a further means of facilitating rescue. If, in the event of an accident requiring emergency service support, you notice that no event message has been sent or a voice connection to the emergency service control centre is not established, you should immediately notify the responsible local emergency services yourself using the pan-EU emergency call number 112.
