What is the scenario with rear-end crashes?

In a typical circumstance, rear-end crashes are considered a minority in crashes but then also, they sum up nearly to 300,000 out of 2 million rear-end crashes being reported, the striking vehicle was a passenger vehicle.

As per IIHS (The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) report (2018), out of 7000,000 recorded crashes, 4% of the vehicle involved are striking vehicles, and they are turning; a struck vehicle was turning, lanes changing and not a passenger vehicle. Snowy or icy the roads were and had a speed limit of 70mph (ca. 113 km/h) or greater.

The non-passenger vehicle that is more reliably detected got the potentiality to make a strong impact by AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) systems. As per a report published by Teoh (2018) based on the statistics observed during the 2011-2015 U.S. crash, prevention systems for the front crashes were estimated to prevent motorcycle crashed up to 13% which perfectly worked.

The deaths recorded in 2017 for U.S. passenger vehicles were twelve percent with large trucks crashes. As per the IIHS report, out of 5 accidents, 1 is recorded when the rear-end of the large truck was struck by a passenger vehicle. Mostly, the accidents are prevented with guards where the under-ride rear is stronger whereas large trucks that can be detected reliably by AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) can prevent crashes occurring from the rear under-ride crash and thereby the burden on the under ride guard is lessened.
