Roadway improvements have been shown to reduce crashes.
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)
