ARLINGTON, Va. — Statistical analyses, surveys and behavioral experiments may not be as splashy as crash tests, but they make up a key pillar of highway safety. A new web video introduces viewers to the IIHS research department and its wide-ranging work.
"Inside IIHS: Research" features interviews with Institute researchers, who explain how they use crash databases and experiments to study roadway features, driver behavior and vehicle safety features. This work helps improve highway safety by influencing policy and informing consumers.
The video is available on the IIHS YouTube channel and is part of the "Inside IIHS" series. Previous installments have focused on various aspects of crash testing, such as dummies and vehicle prep, as well as the Institute's booster seat rating program and its work on the problem of truck underride.
