One of the most common collision types identified for commercial vehicles on the Strategic Road Network (SRN) is frontal shunt collisions, where the front of the HGV or LGV impacts the rear of another vehicle. This project aims to understand the root causes of these collisions (Phase 1 –Wallbank et. al., 2021) and identify countermeasures or interventions which could help to prevent them in the future (Phase 2 –this report). The report presents a number of potential countermeasures to the causes identified in Phase 1 and makes recommendations for which ones Highways England should pursue further.
