Real-world benefits of crash avoidance technologies

18 January 2021

The US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) with The Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), have published a series of studies to highlight the real-world benefits of crash avoidance technologies and the effects of crash avoidance features by comparing rates of police-reported crashes and insurance claims for vehicles with and without the technologies. These can be seen at:

  • The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries and property damage — from motor vehicle crashes.
  • The Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) shares and supports this mission through scientific studies of insurance data representing the human and economic losses resulting from the ownership and operation of different types of vehicles and by publishing insurance loss results by vehicle make and model.
