• Effect of Subaru EyeSight on pedestrian-related bodily injury liability claim frequencies May 2018

    This HLDI bulletin examines the effects of Subaru EyeSight on pedestrian-related bodily injury (BI) liability claim frequencies. This analysis found that Subaru vehicles equipped with EyeSight reduced pedestrian-related claim frequency by 35 percent compared with Subaru vehicles without EyeSight. When the vehicle series are modeled individually, all the series show reductions ranging from 18 to 57%, although only the Legacy and Outback are statistically significant.

  • Pedestrian-related bodily injury liability claim frequencies, hybrids versus their conventional counterparts September 2011

    Hybrid vehicles generate little noise when operating under battery power making them harder for pedestrians to detect. The purpose of this study is to determine if the injury-only bodily injury claim frequency for hybrids differs from the nonhybrid versions of the same vehicles. The injury-only bodily injury claim frequency for hybrids was estimated to be 19.6 percent higher than that for their nonhybrid counterparts. (Vol. 28, No. 12 | September 2011)
