BUMPERS: EFFECTIVE, BUT HOW COST BENEFICIAL
The major factors influencing the cost-benefit relationship of improved bumper systems are discussed. Evidence is presented which demonstrates that energy-absorbing bumper designs have proved effective in reducing the frequency of crash damage, especially damage from low-speed crashes. Although the improved bumper systems are proving effective, the maximum potential cost savings are not yet being realized by consumers.
