Excerpt from Low Speed Car-to-Bus Test Impacts (slightly abridged):

INTRODUCTION
Low speed rear-end impacts resulting in minimal damage to the involved vehicles are common occurrences on our roadways. Claims, and/or litigation, involving neck and back injuries often result from these collisions. A surprising number of claims of injury result from impacts involving transit buses. Many transit bus collisions involve multiple claimants, who frequently claim whiplash-type injuries. 

Because of the large number of often suspicious claims, the need for low speed car-to-bus collision data became apparent. The impact severities and the kinematics of the occupants involved in crash tests could be recorded and studied. This would help give the reconstructionist information needed to evaluate the injury potential from real-world accidents.
