The study, based on the City Safe system fitted as standard on 2010-2012 model-year Volvos on US roads, also found that the rate of injuries to occupants was reduced by 47% and that rear-end crashes involving third-party injuries dropped by 48%.

The study concluded that "City Safety appears to be highly effective at reducing rear-end crashes and associated injuries reported to police, even on roadways with speed limits higher than the system's operating range."
