"Surviving a Car Crash":

There are few things Americans love more than their cars. The problem: our cars don’t always love us back. Every year in the U.S., car crashes take tens of thousands of lives and injure many more, costing us nearly $100 billion in medical care and lost wages. But now, innovations in medicine, psychology, engineering, and even the military are increasing survival rates. Surviving a Car Crash explores the technology that could reduce the biggest risk facing drivers today - themselves.
