verlaagde voorbumper, beschermbalk, (heel misschien spoiler)
Explanation:
constructie aan vrachtautos en bussen die moet voorkomen dat met name personenvoertuigen, maar misschien ook voetgangers en fietsers bij een botsing onder het zware voertuig zouden terechtkomen.


Internet reference:
In case of a head-on collision between a passenger car and a heavy vehicle, the underrun protection device helps decrease the risk of the passenger car sliding underneath the heavy vehicle. It also functions as an energy-absorption device to reduce damage to the passenger car.
Outline:
The front underrun protection device is fixed to the front of a heavy-duty truck's frame at the same height as the bumper of a passenger car. In the event of a collision, the front structure of the passenger car can absorb shock effectively.

* This device was designed to function in head-on collisions with bonnet type passenger cars; it may not function effectively in a collision with a different type of vehicle, or at excessive speeds.
