Project Description

In 2012, ACC engaged with MUARC to calculate the crash worthiness and aggressivity rates (the Total Secondary Safety Index) of the New Zealand light passenger fleet. As a result of this work, ACC introduced a new method of applying levy costs, based on the risk presented by different vehicle makes and models. This method requires ongoing update of underlying crash data and the calculations carried out to determine ratings.
