Reducing Pedestrian Injury: A Safety Feature of New Lexus
For those of our readers who plan to purchase a new car in 2012, and who are concerned about Florida’s high rate of pedestrian fatalities and injuries, another vehicle designed with features to reduce serious injuries to pedestrians in the case of a collision is the Lexus CT200h.
The new CT 200h front-end design features to help reduce pedestrian injury in the event of an impact include a bumper that is structured to help minimize leg injury to pedestrians in certain situations. Impact-absorbing materials have been installed in the front bumper and under the radiator support to lessen the risk that a pedestrian’s legs will slide under the vehicle.
The hood is designed with an impact-absorbing cavity to maximize the impact distance, and the cowl and cowl louvers are structured with an energy-absorbing and easily crushable open cross-section to absorb impacts from above. This is intended help to reduce head injury in some types of pedestrian collisions.
Once again, we applaud the efforts of auto manufacturers who are doing their part to make walking safer for pedestrians, and credit our readers who take pedestrians into consideration when purchasing a new vehicle.
