Women More Likely To Be Injured In Traffic Accidents

Female engineers should have more clout when it comes to the design and safety of all products used by both genders. Shame on the auto industry for this oversight.

Women who wear seat belts are 47% more likely to be injured in a car accident compared with men who wear seat belts, according to a study by the American Journal of Public Health.

That dramatic difference has to do with the way car safety systems are designed, at least in older models, according to ABC News. On average, women are shorter and lighter than men, so the likelihood of injury from air bags increases. Other factors, such as differences in seating posture, also increase the likelihood of injury for women.
