Comparing NHTSA & IIHS Ratings to Real-World Experience

April 09, 2012

TORRANCE, CA – Fleet professionals wondering just how accurate vehicle safety ratings are from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) will have the opportunity to find out next month at the Fleet Safety Conference in Schaumburg, Ill.

A panel discussion, “Comparing NHTSA and IIHS Safety Ratings to Real-World Experience,” will take place May 23 from 10:30-11:15 a.m. and will feature representatives from both agencies. Dan Smith, NHTSA’s senior associate administrator for vehicle safety, and Joe Nolan, chief administrative officer/vice president of vehicle research for IIHS, will be on-site to discuss actual dollar loss and injury experience using real-world fleet data versus NHTSA and IIHS rating systems.

The session is just one of 18 designed specifically to help fleets attain the highest level of safety in their operations.

The Fleet Safety Conference — sponsored by the American Automotive Leasing Association (AALA) and endorsed by the Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA), the American Automotive Leasing Association (AALA), the National Safety Council (NSC), and the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) — is produced by Bobit Business Media and will be held May 22-23 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center.
Among the highlights of the event will be presentation of the first-ever Fleet Safety Award, which will recognize the top fleet safety professional who has shown exceptional leadership, innovation, and measurable results in enhancing the safety of their employees, those traveling with them, and everyone else who shares the road with them.
