Car crashes into buildings are surprisingly common. According to Rob Reiter, the co-founder of the Storefront Safety Council, on average, about 60 vehicles will crash into a commercial building in the United States every day. These crashes result in about 4,000 injuries annually, including about 500 deaths.
For the most part, fatalities or injuries caused by these crashes are preventable. Business owners should take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of their customers and their workers by installing appropriate protective devices, such as concrete bollards, wheel stops, fences, planters and curbs.
