Using experience, industry expertise, logic and energy, we develop new strategies and technologies to help prevent future accidents.
Low Visibility Roadway Emergencies
Every day, people are injured or killed in easily preventable tragedies involving disabled vehicles, and the numbers continue to climb. Recent studies (2017-2018) show a nearly 10% annual increase in these types of accidents with a nearly 40% increase in fatalities of pedestrians attending to disabled vehicles. Today, more than 200 preventable crashes involving disabled or stationary vehicles happen every day in the U.S. alone.
Preventable tragedies involving disabled vehicles include scenarios like:
- A moving vehicle strikes a non-moving, disabled vehicle on or adjacent to the roadway, often leading to multiple car pile-ups.
- A pedestrian is struck while attending to a disabled vehicle on or adjacent to the roadway.
- A vehicle runs off the roadway, strikes a fixed object, and the accident goes unnoticed by passersby for hours or days while trapped vehicle occupants expire.
These accidents occur when drivers do not notice disabled vehicles in time to safely react.
