Backing Car Accident Statistics
A reversing car accident occurs every 1.6 minutes in this country. In the U.S., every year, over 300,000 backing accidents are reported, and that doesn’t include the unreported accidents. Every year, more than 400 people die because of backing accidents (most of them young children.) Drivers must pay over 1.3 billion dollars a year for the damages. Most of these accidents could have been prevented by even the simplest of backing safety systems!
Kids and Cars, a nonprofit organization for increasing child auto safety, reports that in 2017, 91 children died from being backed into. The majority (82%) of these deaths were small children under age four. This age group, though only a tiny 6% of the whole U.S. population makes up 30% of all the non-occupant victims of backing accidents. Also, the number of children killed in reversing accidents increased 57% from 2016 to 2017. Why the dramatic increase? Most likely, it’s due to the large blind spots of SUVs, vans, and pickups, which have been increasing in popularity. Blind spots are areas the driver cannot see easily from her position.
Rear Blind Spots: Be Aware!
Most backing over accidents happen because a child or object is obscured from the driver’s view by the vehicle’s blind spot. The longer and taller the vehicle is, the bigger the blind spot may be, making it more difficult to see children or objects behind the vehicle.
We did our own investigation to demonstrate that principle. We measured the blind spots for several different types of vehicles: sedan, minivan, SUV, and pickup truck. Using a 28-inch road cone, and placing it at different distances behind different autos, we measured and compared the blind spots of these vehicles. Here is what we found:
- Honda Accord Sedan: Blind spot is roughly 12 feet for an average-height driver (5’8″). For a shorter driver (5’1″), it would be closer to 17 feet.
- Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan: Blind spot is 13 feet for the average-height driver, 23 feet for a shorter driver.
- Toyota Sequoia SUV: Blind spot is 14.5 feet for an average-height driver, 24.5 feet for a shorter driver.
- Chevrolet Avalanche Pickup: Blind spot is 30 feet for an average driver, 51 feet for a shorter driver. That’s a lot of obscured area!
As you can see, as the bottom of the rear window rises, the car length increases, or the driver’s height decreases, the length of the blind spot increases. Don’t risk your own financial security and the lives of small children! Invest in a backing safety system today!
