Newly available research shows massive crash reduction is possible

22 August 2017

The recently updated evidence available on The Road Safety Observatory  shows the significant effect of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.  New research shows that when comparing similar vehicles between 2010 and 2014, those equipped with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) had a reduced involvement in rear end collisions by 27%. (Cicchino, 2017).

A further study study found a 38% overall reduction in rear-end crashes for vehicles fitted with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB ), when compared to a comparison sample of similar vehicles.
