OUSTON, TX — Emergency Safety Solutions (ESS) today announced that in the third quarter of 2019, the company has documented and validated a new safety case – a previously unidentified root cause of preventable, but often fatal, roadway accidents. After identifying this safety case, which results in 2 to 4 deaths each day in the United States, ESS developed new technology that can be integrated into passenger and commercial vehicles to prevent future accidents. ESS has also secured global intellectual property for this solution.
ESS has submitted this safety case, which was conducted by an independent analysis firm, to the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), and along with it, a regulatory interpretation request for the solution the company has developed.
“The Emergency Safety Solutions team, in its analysis of roadway fatality data published by NHTSA and other global government agencies, has identified a safety problem that caused 6,500 to 10,000 roadway deaths in the United States over the past decade,” said Stephen Powers, Chief Operating Officer. “Our team has worked diligently to develop a simple, cost-effective solution to this safety case, and we look forward to working with USDOT, NHTSA and auto manufacturers to integrate this solution into all new vehicles to prevent the continuation of these unnecessary tragedies.”
Emergency Safety Solutions will continue to provide updates on this safety case as new information becomes available.
