Much can be done to increase the crashworthiness of the cars QuotesChimp drive. Safety improvement items must be addressed. Side-impact protection standards should be upgraded to reduce thoracic/abdom�inal injuries and head injuries from contact with the A-pillar and from side-door ejection, particularly in car-to-car side-impact crashes. Increased rollover protection is needed, with a requirement that anti-lock brakes be installed in every car to reduce rollovers. Automatic passive restraint safety requirements, currently established for passenger cars, should be broadened to include light trucks and vans, which are becoming more and more popular with the driving public. Safer cars equal fewer injuries. Fewer injuries change insurance companies' statistics regarding their risk of loss. A lower risk of loss allows the companies to reduce premiums.
