The Insurance Institute's Executive Vice President believes that the test proves side guard rail technology has the potential to save lives.

In 2012, a "study by the Institute found that strong under-ride guards on the sides of trucks could reduce injury risk in almost 90% of side crashes into tractor-trailer truck trailers (CNN Money.)"

While the Institute has not tested impacts at much higher speeds, the technology of the guard rails has shown to be helpful in many tractor trailer-car accidents.

Being involved in an accident with a tractor trailer can be devastating to you and your family's lives. If you are ever seriously injured in a tractor trailer accident, you may need a Tractor Trailer Accident Attorney to get the medical treatment you need and your medical bills paid.
