Why safe vehicles matter

Safer Vehicles can save lives:

  • By preventing a crash.
  • By absorbing and reducing the forces of impact in a crash.

Cars built from 2006 onwards are better at protecting drivers and passengers in frontal, rear and offset crashes because of their crumple zones and stronger compartments. If every vehicle could be upgraded to the safest in its class, serious trauma could be reduced by a third.
