NHTSA Says Passengers Safer Inside in a Rollover

The New York Times - December 3, 2011

The Nation­al High­way Traf­fic Safe­ty Admin­is­tra­tion issued a safe­ty stan­dard intend­ed to pre­vent occu­pants from being eject­ed through the side win­dows in acci­dents and requires automak­ers to incor­po­rate tech­nol­o­gy designed to pro­tect both belt­ed and unbelt­ed pas­sen­gers. It is esti­mat­ed the safe­ty tech­nol­o­gy will cost $31 per vehi­cle, save 373 lives, and pre­vent 476 seri­ous injuries annu­al­ly. Large-vol­ume automak­ers must install ejec­tion-mit­i­ga­tion pro­vi­sions in 25 per­cent of their vehi­cles start­ing in 2013.
