In recent years in different industrial countries (e.g., the United States, Germany, France, United Kingdom, and Sweden), crash research studies were performed to identify dangerous crash situations, driver errors, and causal factors in an effort to formulate effective crash countermeasures. Most of these studies were carried out from technical, biomechanical, and/ or medical perspectives.
