Abstract [en]
Injuries received by occupants of the vehicle involved in tree and pole crashes are frequently more severe than in other types of collisions. Vehicles manufactured for Australian roads are required to satisfy safety requirements as specified by Australian Design Rules (ADRs) formulated by the Australian Government. Despite the serious injury outcomes of pole and tree crashes, there is currently no ADR extending to crashes with fixed roadside objects. This study demonstrates that the higher the impact speed the more serious the injury outcomes, and that seat belt use and front airbags provides good protection for occupants in a tree and pole collisions. Recommendations have been made for improved vehicle design and to development of a specific ADR covering car-to-pole crashes. Furthermore, it is recommended that an ADR specific to car-to-pole crashes be introduced.
