U.S. fatality rate for SUV crashes down by 64 percent
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.

But in crashes involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to prevent potentially deadly underride.

Volvo Crash Test Center.mpg
Volvos crash-test laboratory now 10 years new [img]http://www.cleanmpg.com/photos/data/2/AmericanFlag.jpg[/img] [url=cleanmpg.com]We are continuously taking new steps towards our vision that nobody should die or suffer serious injuries in a new Volvo car by the year 2020.[/url] [fimg=left][/fimg]Wayne Gerdes - [url=cleanmpg.com]CleanMPG[/url] - May 8, 2010 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 safest cars. "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.





Weak federal standard allows deadly car-into-truck crashes
IIHS news release • March 1, 2011 Underride guards on big rigs often fail in crashes; Institute petitions government for new standard ARLINGTON, VA — New crash tests and analysis by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety demonstrate that underride guards on tractor-trailers can fail in relatively low-speed crashes — with deadly consequences. The Institute is petitioning the federal government to require stronger underride guards that will remain in place during a crash and to mandate guards for more large trucks and trailers.

2012 Volkswagen (Passat) CC IIHS Narrow/Small Overlap Frontal Offset (Marginal Rating)
Structure-Head/Neck-Chest-Lower Leg-Restraints M-G-A-G-P Test details: The Volkswagen CC was introduced in the 2009 model year. The car is a variant of older (2006-10) models of the Volkswagen Passat sedan with a lower roofline, frameless side windows, and a higher price. Structure — Maximum intrusion in the driver's footwell area was 24 cm measured at the lower hinge pillar. Maximum intrusion in the instrument panel area was 17 cm. Restraints/dummy kinematics — The dummy's head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the left side, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward side structure and resulting in little airbag cushioning for the chest. This occurred, in part, because the steering column moved 19 cm to the right as the dummy moved to the left. Additionally, the seat belt allowed excessive forward excursion of the dummy's head and torso. Neither the side curtain nor side torso airbags deployed, leaving the dummy's head and chest vulnerable to contacts with side structure and outside objects. The driver door hinges were torn off and the latch opened, resulting in the door detaching from the vehicle, which shouldn't happen because the driver could be partly or completely ejected from the vehicle. Injury measures — Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the left thigh would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low.
