According to a new study, women are more likely to end up with serious injuries after a car accident because safety features are designed more with men in mind.

Researchers found the odds of serious injury for female drivers wearing seat belts were 47 percent higher than those of men.

They say that the positioning of head restraints fails to take into account how women’s necks are different in size and strength.

Women also face a higher risk of injuries to the lower parts of their bodies because of their shorter height.
