Stronger Femurs Proposed for Crash Test Dummies

WASHINGTON (CN) - The Highway Traffic Safety Administration has proposed changes in design to the "six-year-old child" crash test dummy "to improve the durability of the dummy's femurs."

Changes would be made to the design to keep the legs from snapping off at the pelvis, and the new femur would be made of steel instead of aluminum bronze.

The same problem had occurred in the "10-year-old child" dummy.
