There are many people that die each year from automobile accidents. In 2020 alone, approximately 30,000 people died in vehicular accidents. This may seem unusual because of all the safety standards that we have today. However, you would be surprised to know that while more safety features have been added, our safety tests have remained about the same over the years. In this video, you will learn why this might be a bad thing.
If you have been in a minor auto accident recently, take your vehicle to a trusted auto repair expert.
For many years, crash tests were simply done using a standardized dummy. Now, companies are starting to use virtual crash test simulations for more accurate and less costly tests. However, for many years, it has not been like this. Further, these tests may not be as accurate as you may think. The standard in the industry has always testing the average American adult male and how their dummy results to different crashes. However, there is really no appropriate dummy to represent females. Further, people come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. A standardized dummy is good for drawing comparisons between cars, but it severely limits applicable results. If you are not an adult male who has an average height and body size, you are not necessarily being accurately represented.
