A combined forward collision and lane departure warning system available on the Honda Accord is reducing insurance claims, a new Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) analysis shows. The results are even better than expected based on previous studies of such technology on luxury vehicles, the HLDI stated.

In the first real-world study of a crash avoidance system on a high-volume, non-luxury vehicle, Honda’s system was found to reduce insurance claims for damage to other vehicles by 14 percent. It cut claims for injuries to occupants of the equipped vehicles by 27 percent and claims for injuries to other road users by 40 percent.

"This was our first opportunity to study advanced crash avoidance technology on a high-volume vehicle, and the results are impressive," said HLDI Vice President Matt Moore. "This is a warning system only, but the claim frequency reductions are similar to what we saw earlier for systems with automatic braking."

Previous analyses of forward collision warning without autobrake showed more modest claim reductions. Lane departure warning was associated with increases in claims in earlier studies, though none that were statistically significant, according to the HLDI.
