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.

Ford revives classic '64-'66 Mustang - offered as a body shell
Ford has revived the 1964-1966 Mustang.
It's not as simple as walking into a dealership and ordering the classic
Ford Mustang but you can
buy a new body-shell of the first-generation model (the convertible too)
and begin to 'restore' it yourself using Ford-approved classic parts.
Prices for the 1965 Ford Mustang body shell start at $15,000.
The new shell uses modern steel and welding techniques that makes it
actually stronger and more durable than the original.
Once you have the body shell you'll need the powertrain, suspension,
brakes, electrical system and interior trim to build the car, which you can
take from an existing first-generation Mustang or can purchase from
The '64-'66 Ford Mustang is
the most ubiquitous of all classic models. It is the most insured classic
car by Hagerty Insurance, the U.S.'s largest insurer of collectable

New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.

Volvos crash-test laboratory now 10 years new

that nobody should die or suffer serious injuries in a new Volvo car by the

At Volvo, the ability to replicate road accidents contributes to
world-class crash safety.
Volvo's crash-test laboratory in Torslanda turns 10 this year - and the
almost 3,000 full-scale tests that have been carried out during the
high-tech facility's first decade have helped give Volvo owners some of the
"We can replicate most of the incident and accident scenarios that take
place out on the roads. By analyzing these and then testing new safety
technology in the crash-test laboratory, we can improve the safety level in
our cars so that they become even safer in real-life traffic conditions,"
says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo.
When the new safety center was inaugurated by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf
in early 2000, it was one of the most advanced in the car industry - a
position it has retained over the years thanks to the continuous
implementation of new equipment and new test methods.
The latest technology infusion is in the form of a set of digital
high-speed cameras that can take 200,000 frames per second.
