Crash Test 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air VS. 2009 Chevrolet Malibu (Frontal Offset) IIHS 50th Anniversary
In the 50 years since US insurers organized the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, car crashworthiness has improved. Demonstrating this was a
crash test conducted on Sept. 9 between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009
Chevrolet Malibu. In a real-world collision similar to this test, occupants
of the new model would fare much better than in the vintage Chevy.
"It was night and day, the difference in occupant protection," says
Institute president Adrian Lund. What this test shows is that automakers
don't build cars like they used to. They build them better."
The crash test was conducted at an event to celebrate the contributions of
auto insurers to highway safety progress over 50 years. Beginning with the
Institute's 1959 founding, insurers have maintained the resolve,
articulated in the 1950s, to "conduct, sponsor, and encourage programs
designed to aid in the conservation and preservation of life and property
from the hazards of highway accidents."
A decade after the Institute was founded, insurers directed this
organization to begin collecting data on crashes and the cost of repairing
vehicles damaged in crashes. To lead this work and the Institute's expanded
research program, insurers named a new president, William Haddon Jr., who
already was a pioneer in the field of highway safety. In welcoming Dr.
Haddon, Thomas Morrill of State Farm said "the ability to bring unbiased
scientific data to the table is extremely valuable." This scientific
approach, ushered in by Dr. Haddon, is a hallmark of Institute work. It's
why the Institute launched the Highway Loss Data Institute in 1972 — to
collect and analyze insurance loss results to provide consumers with
Another Institute milestone was the 1992 opening of the Vehicle Research
Center. Since then, the Institute has conducted much of the research that
has contributed to safer vehicles on US roads. At the anniversary event,
current Institute chairman Gregory Ostergren of American National Property
and Casualty summed up a commitment to continue what fellow insurers began
in 1959: "On this golden anniversary of the Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety, we celebrate this organization's accomplishments toward safer
drivers, vehicles, and roadways. We salute the vision of the Institute's
founders and proudly continue their commitment to highway safety."
