ISA saves lives - New Report

2 August 2011

A recently published research report from the Centre for Automotive Safety Research in Adelaide Australia has shown that  if state government fleets in Australia were fitted with advisory Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) there was the potential to reduce casualty crashes  by 20%. It was estimated that this would eliminate 171 casualty crashes involving state government vehicles per year and save $31.6 million in crash costs per year. 

Of the four ISA devices considered the navaid device that included ISA functionality was found to be the most cost effective.

A copy of the report and further research reports are available here.
