Before you jump to any conclusions, the reason women are more likely to be hurt in car accidents is not because they are in more accidents, but rather because of the way cars are currently designed. The study found that car safety features do not protect women as well as men. Specifically, the study found that seatbelts do not always fit women as well as men and that women tend to sit closer to airbags than men. Thus, when women are involved in an accident they may be more likely to suffer injuries.
