Low-speed vehicle crash tests
IIHS news release • May 20, 2010
ARLINGTON, VA - Low-speed vehicles and minitrucks shouldn't share busy
public roads with regular traffic
More states are allowing a relatively new breed of vehicle on public roads,
but crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show why the
mix of low-speed vehicles (LSVs) or minitrucks and regular traffic is a
deadly combination. LSVs are designed for tooling around residential
neighborhoods, and minitrucks are for hauling cargo off-road. While these
vehicles have a lot of appeal as a way to reduce emissions and cut fuel
use, they don't have to meet the basic safety standards that cars and
pickups do, and they aren't designed to protect their occupants in crashes.

SUVs and pickups pose less risk to people in crashes
IIHS news release • September 28, 2011
Effort to make SUVs, pickups less deadly to car occupants in crashes is
ARLINGTON, VA - Today's SUVs and pickups pose far less risk to people in
cars and minivans than previous generations, a new study from the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety shows. Until recently, SUVs and pickups were
more likely than cars or minivans of the same weight to be involved in
crashes that killed occupants of other cars or minivans. That's no longer
the case for SUVs, and for pickups the higher risk is much less pronounced
than it had been.

Army jeep crash test
An army jeep (M 151 - MUTT) we all see in a movies, crash and disintegrate
very nicely. And amazingly it still land on all four wheels. Famous "flying
hand" is drivers left arm. Though it looks ok but actualy its just a
dangling sleeve and the hand itself fly off at first roll.

Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS
When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the
results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States
thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64
percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as
lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with
trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per
million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a
private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly,"
said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.
