Police Cruiser Rear Collision. The CVPI performance in standard testing and assessments was contrasted to the CVPI’s real world performance in which a series of highly publicized crashes resulted in punctures of the fuel tank and burn injuries and burn deaths and to police officers. Evaluations of real world crashes reveal vehicle defects that were addressed in part by Ford through a variety of remedial design related mechanism including service bulletins, retrofits, design changes and accessory safety equipment. High-speed 50% offset 75 mph car-to-car crash tests, test and analysis at crash severity well in excess of government safety standards, are conducted to validate and evaluate potential remedies of the vehicle’s defects. Standardized testing used in assessing fuel system performance of the Ford CVPI police car was identified as an incomplete indicator of the fuel system’s actual crash performance.
