Talking Cars #227: Why Women Are More Likely to Get Hurt in Crashes

Main theme: Four decades of studies show that female vehicle occupants are more likely to be hurt or killed in a crash. We discuss why and what should be done.


Driven this week: 2020 Lincoln Corsair


Audience questions:


  • My front seatback is very close to the child car seat I have installed in the back. Is that a problem?
  • Why is BMW charging for Apple CarPlay? Will more automakers follow suit?
  • I have a terrible commute and need a comfortable, fuel-efficient car that's good for my back.
  • Help! We’ve got a kid on the way, and $10,000 to spend on a new car.
