No crash test dummy represents average women. What’s that mean for safety?

Women get in fewer car accidents than men. But when they do, they’re up to 73% more likely to be injured and 28% more likely to die, according to new data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

One reason for that might be there is no crash test dummy that represents the average female body used in car safety testing, despite women making up more than half of all licensed U.S. drivers.
