Each year the National Highway Traffic Safety Administ- ration's (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program crash tests vehicles and provides a one-to-five-star rating on each vehicle's crash protec- tion. A five-star rating indi- cates the best protection, one star the least. The number of stars represents how well vehicles protect belted drivers and front-seat pas- sen'ers during a frontal and side collision. 1997 New Car Safety Features Manufacturers provide buyers the most complete information about safety equipment on their vehicles. Here are some safety fea- tures that are especially important: Air bags. Air bags inflate instantly in frontal crashes to prevent occu- pants from hitting the dash- board, steering wheel or windshield at speeds as slow as 9 mph. Air bags do not elimi- nate the need for safety bolts, and they offer no pro- tection in rollovers, rear or side impacts. Safety belts help keep you in place should a collision occur. Air bags and ehil- of a vehicle equipped with a front passenger air bag unless the air bag is off. Safety Belt Systems. Safety bolt systems are your best protection in a crash. They prevent you from col- liding with the dashboard or windshield and hold you inside the vehicle. Children who have out- grown safety seats and booster seats are better protected by lap/shoulder belts than by lap belts alone. Most younger chil- dren who have outgrown their convertible child seat at about 40 lbs. still need a booster child safety seat to help the shoulder/lap belt fit properly. Booster seats with shields can be used with the lap portion of a shoulder belt or with only a lap belt if available. If several children are riding in back, and there are shoulder belts there, let the older ones use the shoulder belts. Put the child riding in the car seat in the middle where there is only a lap bolt. Results for current mod- els are released throughout the year. For the latest crash-test data, or data on used cars since 1979, call the NHTSA Auto Safety Hotline at 1-800-424-9393. A fax-on-demand system will fax the information to dren: Warning--Children callers when they enter can be killed or seriously their fax number. An elec- injured by an air bag.
