Cars are designed to mitigate the chance of driver and passenger injury, even in the case of serious wrecks. However, if a car is not designed properly or if it is constructed improperly, then it may fail to keep drivers and passengers safe.
For instance, most car roofs are designed to be heavy and thick. This design helps prevent the roof from crumpling in case of an accident. However, if the roof is thin and light, it may crush drivers and passengers when accidents occur.
Although government research has proven the extra safety of thick roofs, many car manufacturers still make cars with thin roofs to save on costs.
