Toyota says it will stop selling its car-safety tech in 2020

Toyota announced Wednesday that it will not sell the Toyota Safety Connect program, which it has touted as a way to save billions of dollars on recalls.

The company announced the decision after a three-year study into how the technology could be better used.

The program allowed automakers to avoid buying new recalls from other companies, which typically lead to fewer recalls.

Toyota is the only automaker to stop selling the program, though others have followed suit, including Ford and General Motors.

Toyota will continue to sell safety-related products and services, including software and service kits.
