NTSB Releases Rear Seat Protection Workshop Report
The workshop was held on April 26, 2016.
The NTSB has issued a report on the Rear Seat Safety in Passenger Vehicles workshop that held on April 26, 2016. The report provides a summary of the discussions held during breakout sessions.
The workshop brought experts together from the safety and health community to discuss short- and long-term steps that could improve safety for rear-seated passengers. Recent studies have shown that the protection offered to rear seated passengers has not advanced as quickly as protection for front seat occupants.
Other topics discussed include advanced technologies, seat designs, seat belt technologies, and more.
