General Motors introduced in its 1967 passenger cars an innovation in the concept of vehicle safety called the “energy-absorbing steering column.” A statistical study of its performance has been conducted on 3000 1968 General Motors passenger cars which were involved in accidents. This field accident study is then compared with raw accident data obtained from ACIR. Various other aspects of the performance of the column are investigated in this summary of field accident experience.
