Reversing safety has been brought into the headlines in Great Britain following the deaths of two people in separate reversing accidents. Official statistics suggest that less than 2% of road accidents involve reversing. Various sources, however, have shown the true extent of reversing accidents. The Association of British Insurance figures suggest that about 17% of accidents involve reversing. The University of Huddersfield and Brake has developed a reversing safety audit for managers involved in vehicle reversing. Further reading on reversing safety is recommended.
