Safety is defined as freedom from risk. If we avoid, reduce or eliminate risk we are safer.
It is important to realize that safety is relative. Eliminating all risk, would be extremely difficult and very expensive. When something is called safe, this usually means that it is safe within certain reasonable limits and parameters.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safety)
美国公路安全保险协会（Insurance Institute for Highway Safety）测试类型最丰富是世界安全标准中最严格的，也是北美各保险公司依据的标准，除了基本的测试之外，IIHS还时常会进行一些特殊的碰撞，比如会进行车辆的对撞来评测安全性能，以及128km/h的时速撞向不可移动固体墙，但这也遭到了部分厂商的不满。正面碰撞测试,速度为64.4km/h； 侧面碰撞测试速度为49.8km/h
1. 两车迎头对撞， 实际车速为两车速之和超过100KM/H。 车辆安全测试标准Euro NCAP 车辆测试速度 侧撞40KM/h，前撞64KM/H。从以下罗列新闻可看出：Unibody很大概率车毁人亡，Body-on-frame 型truck 人员基本安全。Head On Collisions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVoSp1SjrCw
2. 在高速公路上出爆胎事故，可能引起火烧车。原因是高速出车祸车体严重变形造成油箱破裂而Body-on-frame 型truck基本能预防此类油箱破裂事故，因为底盘的frame根本不会变形。Frame rails 最弱的C-shaped thickness from 1/8" to 3/16" 前几年我曾见过美国大雪暴后高速公路上车祸照片两辆 truck trailer 分别撞向一辆皮卡两侧， 皮卡上部完全变形司机只受擦伤。
