[prMac.com] Vitebsk, Belarus - Macsoftex has announced Crash Test 1.0, their video collection of crash tests popular cars for iPhone and iPod touch. Road traffic accidents kill more than one million people a year, injuring another thirty-eight million (5 million of them seriously). The death toll on the world's roadways makes driving the number one cause of death and injury for young people ages 15 to 44.
How safe is that new or used vehicle you're thinking of purchasing? With the introduction of airbags and crash-testing, the number of people killed and injured by motor vehicles has decreased in many countries. International NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) ratings provide a useful basis for comparing vehicle safety. Let's see what international safety information is currently available.
In the United States - the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) provides safety information for a large number of vehicles through their New Car Assessment Program (US-NCAP), using an outdated crash-testing procedure and featuring only vehicles built after 1994. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) does its own testing for the insurance industry, but data is only available for a few late-model vehicles.
In Europe - the FIA crashtests Europe's most popular models for the European NCAP, but tests only a small number of vehicles each year. Pedestrians and bicyclists are much more vulnerable than vehicle occupants when a crash occurs.
Germany's Auto Motor und Sport magazine sponsors crash-tests of a small number of European cars but permits only subscribers to access the information.
In Australia - the NRMA tests vehicles for the Australian NCAP (ANCAP) and has recently adopted the Euro-NCAP testing procedures (they formerly used NHTSA test procedures).
In Japan - the National Organization for Automotive Safety & Victims' Aid (OSA) sponsors Japanese NCAP tests (full-frontal, frontal offset, and side impact) on the most popular Japanese home-market vehicles.
