TRB

January 28, 2021 | 4:00 p.m. ET

There is evidence that the rear seat has lost some of its safety advantage relative to the front seat. While the front seat has seen improvements in engineering, behavioral, legislative and enforcement arenas, such improvements have been slower to diffuse to adult and vulnerable elderly rear-seated passengers. This session provides an update on the latest evolving science of adult rear-seat occupant protection and a forum for discussion of the gaps and next steps in improving rear-seat motor vehicle safety.
