#2 Use dummies with endomorphic, 'large' women as standard, keeping the mass and joint strength the same as the earlier dummies, and this problem goes away forever.

#5 Ah, poor babies. Did you know that the greatest fatalities in auto accidents occur in the front passenger seat? Maybe all you have to do is move to another location in the car, preferably before impact.
