BUMPER CROP

This article reviews the history of the 5 mph bumpers and reviews the Department of Transportation's decision to roll the standard back to 2.5 mph. Opinions of insurance companies, automobile manufacturers, and the general public are stated. At this time, consumers will have a chance to choose between the two types of bumpers because some manufacturers have elected to go with the new 2.5 mph bumper, while others have stayed with 5 mph.
