Safety Comes Standard
There is a lot to consider when making a vehicle. Not only must it look great it has to be fuel efficient and comfortable. There is so much about people and how they will interact with the vehicle that one has to consider. Something engineers cannot ignore is the fact that people make mistakes. Unfortunately a mistake in a car can be dangerous. Safety is a top priority in the automotive industry. As a result there are organizations committed to ensuring that car manufacturers meet a safety standard. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) is one such organization.
