Are women more at risk in Car CRASHES?

The anatomy of women is different than men hence the effect of seatbelts is different.

The dummies historically were a medium size males for most research and design.

Note here that the focus on prevention is POST-CRASH, which is the other end of the spectrum of DRIVER TRAINING which is PRE CRASH. POST-CRASH prevention is big money.

This problem has changed over the years and a variety of different dummies are now used in crash prevention research.

There are THREE collisions in a single-car crash. Do you know what they are?

Do you know what coup and contrecoup refer to in a car crash?
