Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Recommends Increased Vehicle Roof Strength

Starting in 2010, car makers that want the insurance industry’s highest safety ratings will have to increase roof strength on their vehicles to a 4.0 strength to weight ratio. This new insurance industry standard significantly exceeds the current government standard of 1.5. It also significantly exceeds the proposed new government standard of 2.5. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety estimates using the 4.0 strength to weight ratio could reduce injuries in rollover accidents by 40-50{5fdd16ef34b61066f424b5cd5cbf7bb2334bf24e56c2c2df8c6fb533c216f4ff}.
