Innovative combined side & rear guard promises better underride protection

One of our Underride Research funding goals is to cover the costs of crash testing at IIHS ($25,000) of an innovative underride prevention system designed by Aaron Kiefer, a forensic engineer (he does crash reconstructions) here in North Carolina. Jerry and I went to see his prototype a few weeks ago. Very cool. It combines side & rear guard protection.

See his Public Comment on the Advanced Notice of Proposed Rule Making (ANPRM) for underride protection on Single Unit Trucks posted today on the Federal Register:  http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=NHTSA-2015-0070-0013
