I’m not sure how many people realize women in the U.S. are not accurately represented in crash tests of motor vehicles.
Don’t believe me? Go here, here, here, or here. Even Business Insider and Consumer Reports have something to say about this travesty. In fact, Consumer Reports states that “Women are 17% more likely to be killed in a car crash than a male occupant of the same age,” and that a seatbelt wearing female is 73% more likely to be injured.
Now, come the groveling. I am begging you to please take five minutes and leave a comment on the NTSB website asking them to rectify this situation. You can cite any of the article above or refer to the “Verity” website, where they even offer some examples you can adapt to suit your style.
It’s not an exaggeration to say this action could help save lives.
So, please, please, please, please(!) take a few minutes to remember the women in your life. Click the link. Leave a comment.
