I never paid much attention to things like safety ratings until after the wreck I had yesterday. Safety engineering matters. Fortunately, I walked away from this disaster after a high speed head-on collision. I was banged up and bruised, but nothing broken and no internal injuries. The two occupants of the other vehicle were taken by ambulance to the local trauma center and were admitted with some broken bones and other injuries, but I'm told they will recover.
Do you know the safety rating of your vehicle?
