National Transportation Safety Board Accident Investigations and Recommendations on Technologies to Prevent Rear-End Collisions 2001-01-3243

Rear-end collisions account for over 1.7 million crashes1 that occur on U.S. highways each year, and the number is growing. In the past 2 years, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigated nine rear-end collisions in which 21 people died and 182 were injured. Technology exists today that could have saved these lives. Since 1995, the NTSB has recommended the testing and use of collision warning systems (CWS) to prevent or alleviate the severity of rear-end collisions. This report will describe the accidents that NTSB investigated in 1999 and 2000, how technology can help drivers prevent such accidents, and NTSB's position on these technologies that can save lives.
