Dr. Janet Bahouth will contrasts actual crashes and injury outcomes for restrained versus non-belted occupants. The presentation includes background information on crash dynamics, how both seat belts and car seats are designed to protect us in a crash, and the energy exchange that causes specific injuries. Actual crash scene investigations will demonstrate injury patterns in different seating positions.
