About two acres of brush were

IT'S ONE OF THE MOST COMMON ACCIDENTS

PROTECT OUR NECKS AND HEADS IN REAR END
CRASHES.



IN FACT... MOST PEOPLE DON'T EVEN THINK
OF HEAD RESTRAINTS WHEN THEY'RE

BUYING A NEW CAR...



SOT:(Chris Yendell, Car Enthusiast:)


"Whether that one sticks in my mind

or not, probably not as much as
airbags, side airbags and what the
crash

rating is."

22 MODELS TESTED BY THE INSURANCE
INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY GOT a

GOOD RATING -- BUT 53 MODELS RANKED
MARGINAL OR POOR.



SOT:(Adrian Lund, Insurance Institute


For Highway Safety:) "it hasn't

been that high a priority to protect
people's necks against whiplash

injury.




(graphic)

AMONG THE CARMAKERS THAT MADE THE
GRADE: VOLVO, AUDI, FORD AND NISSAN



POOR RATINGS WENT TO: TOYOTA, HONDA,
PONTIAC AND BMW.



sot (Adrian Lund:) "The thing is, it's


not all that complicated or all

that expensive. A well designed seat --
like in the Ford 500, doesn't

cost any more to make than a seat that
doesn't provide protection."

(10:58:02)



(STANDUP/clare leka/nyc)

THE INSTITUE SAYS A HEAD RESTRAINT
SHOULD EXTEND AT LEAST AS HIGH AS THE

TOP OF THE EARS... AND BE PLACED CLOSE
TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD SO IT CAN

SUPPORT IT WHEN A CRASH OCCURS.



(super:VIDEO FROM: THE INSURANCE
INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY)

IF THAT SUPPORT ISN'T IN THE RIGHT
PLACE... YOUR BODY WILL BE THROWN

FORWARD, AND YOUR HEAD WILL LAG
BEHIND... CAUSING WHIPLASH.




AMERICANS REPORT SOME 2 MILLION NECK
INURIES FROM ACCIDENTS EACH YEAR.



THE INSTITUTE EXPECTS MORE CARMAKERS TO
START OFFERING BETTER

PROTECTION... BUT THE GOVERNMENT ISN'T
WAITING -- REQUIRING BETTER

POSTIONING OF HEAD RESTRAINTS IN ALL
CARS BY 2009.
