The importance of vehicle safety as a critical and global public health problem is discussed. Crashworthiness principles are enumerated and reviewed as relevant to this problem. Injury biomechanics in rollover and rear impact cases are considered next. Pertinent vehicle safety standards are discussed. The importance and feasibility of improved roof structure, seatbacks and windows is examined. Some selected pertinent case studies are reviewed and finally conclusions are drawn.
