Summary
Most drivers are likely to be in more than one crash in their lifetime. No one expects to be in a car accident. But every year on our highways, thousands of people are killed and millions more injured. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the car you're in will have a lot to do with your survival. We see crash test footage and witness the results. We learn what experts look for in designs to make cars safer. We monitor crash dummies to measure severity of head, chest and upper leg injury. The less damage in "the survival zone":...the less chance of severe injury or death. Experts talk about airbags, antilock brakes, seatbelts, children's car seats, and safer tires. Throughout the video, experts discuss government guidelines and manufacturer standards for building safer cars. But they also clearly indicate that consumers must make good choices by finding and using current safety information. Staying Alive provides a critical look at a very timely subject...give your students the safety edge!
