|Should dummy's waistlines increase because ours do?|
78% more likely to die in a vehicle crash. Why? Because cars are made for people who are in the "suggested" weight range. That means a car "fits" an obese person differently, and doesn't necessarily protect an overweight person the way it's built to protect a regular size person.
The answer? An obese crash test dummy, according to the company that makes the majority of dummies.
