Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)


Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) — a nonprofit research and communications organization funded by automobile insurers. The IIHS focuses on the factors that do and do not work in preventing motor vehicle crashes in the first place and reducing injuries in the crashes that still occur. The Institute's research concerns the countermeasures aimed at all three factors in motor vehicle crashes (human, vehicular, and environmental) and on interventions that can occur before, during, and after an automobile accident to reduce losses. An affiliated organization is the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI).
