Who is THUMS?
THUMS - or Total HUman Model For Safety - could be one of the smartest crash test dummies ever. He can't talk, but he can tell you a whole lot about what happens during a vehicle crash. That's because THUMS has a bone structure, ligaments and tendons, which help Toyota's researchers analyze, in detail, the impact to vital organs such as the heart, lungs and liver during a simulated crash.
THE THUMS DIFFERENCE
Thanks to THUMS's vital organs, Toyota has been able to re-create and study situations that are closer to real-world conditions. The result is enhanced safety in Toyota's cars to give you and your passengers peace of mind.
Every 1km/h reduction = 2% reduction in average crashes.
High beam, low risk
Always set to high beams when driving in rural areas and on open highways. Dim them when you are within 60 meters behind a vehicle or within 150 meters of an oncoming vehicle to prevent blinding its driver. You too must avoid being blinded by the approaching headlights - do not stare at them directly, look toward the left edge of your lane until they have passed.
Talk At Your Own Risk
Hands-free does not mean distraction-free. Research shows the phone call itself is the main distraction and a hands-free set does not significantly lower the risk of an accident.
Dangers Of Technology
Did you know that new technology is posing a significant danger on our roads? 1 in 8 drivers (12%) has used the Internet, social media, or other mobile phone apps at the wheel, half of those on a regular basis.
Vehicle Safety Checklist
Did you know that 3 in 10 (28%) don’t know how to check the brakes, while 1 in 5 (20%) don't know how to check tires? Having your brakes and tires in good order is essential for safety.
The Gender Gap
More than three-quarters (77%) of all road traffic accidents occur among men. Young males under the age of 25 years are almost 3 times more likely to be killed in a car crash than young females. We can prevent this by practicing safe driving habits. Guys and gals, let’s drive safely!
The only thing that should be speeding is your airbag. Deployed at speeds of up to 200mph in 0.2 seconds, the airbag provides protection between you and the steering wheel, dashboard or windshield.
Don't Kiss My Rear
A rear-end collision is the most common type of vehicular crash. Over 85% of rear-end collisions are caused by a combination of inattentive drivers and an insufficient following distance. Always stay focused on the road and keep a safe distance from the car ahead.
S Is For Safety
Keeping your child safe during a car ride is easy as ABC. Just put your child in a child safety seat. This can reduce the risk of fatality by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers aged 1 to 4 years.
Stay In Your Lane
You are 3 times more likely to get into an accident every time you change lanes. Always signal early, check your mirror and blind spot to change lane safely.
Mind Your Head
Helmets are estimated to reduce the likelihood of fatalities in a motorcycle crash by 37%. It may mess up your hair, but it can also save your life.
Text & Crash
Text while you're driving and you're 20 times more likely to be involved in a crash. Now ask yourself this: Is that message worth it?
Ride With Extreme Caution
Motorcyclists suffer from the highest rate of accidents and casualties. Compared to car passengers, they are 35 times more likely to be involved in a road traffic accident. Always ride with care and practise safe riding habits.
Cyclists Beware Too
Even if your two-wheeler doesn't have an engine, you should still wear a helmet. Why? Cyclists made up 9% of all road user casualties.
Almost 24% of collisions due to inappropriate speed result in fatalities. So don't just watch the road. Watch your speed too.
Drive In Good Health
Medical conditions contribute to 2% of all reported crashes, so it's important to stay healthy for a safe drive.
17% of road accidents on major trunk roads that result in injury or fatalities are sleep-related. Let this fact open your eyes to the danger of driving when you are tired.
Don't Leave It To Chance
The fatality rate for drivers and front seat passengers who do not buckle up is 85%. The odds are against you. Why take the risk? Fasten your seatbelt now.
Texting Blinds You
Every time you text while driving, you take your eyes off the road for an average of 5 seconds. If you're traveling at 55mph, that's equivalent to driving the entire length of a football field, blindfolded.
