Rear Crash Prevention Ratings Aim To Cut Parking Lot Collisions

 Friday, March 9, 2018


Bolstered by IIHS and HLDI research showing that park-assist systems reduce backing crashes, the Institute has launched a program to rate the performance of rear autobrake, which is designed to prevent or mitigate the kinds of everyday low-speed backing crashes that happen in parking lots and garages. Parking crashes usually don’t result in serious injuries, but repair costs can quickly mount, along with the hassle of going without the family vehicle while waiting for the body shop to finish work. The Institute’s new ratings will help consumers shopping for a new vehicle identify the ones with technology that can help avoid the annoyance of these everyday mishaps.
