In 1997, a modeling study conducted by the NHTSA found that rear end crash driver warning systems were effective in 42 percent of rear end crashes in the "lead vehicle decelerating" scenario, and effective in 75 percent of rear end crashes in the "lead vehicle not moving" scenario. Overall, researchers estimated that rear end crash driver warning systems would be 51 percent effective.
