- Align the top of the head restraint with the top of your head (or as high as possible if it won’t reach the top of your head)
- Make sure that the head restraint is as close as possible to the back of your head – this limits the head’s motion before contacting the head restraint.
Never forget to adjust your head restraint and lock it into place whether you’re a driver or passenger!
Find out how your vehicle’s head restraint and seat tested at www.iihs.org. If you are shopping for a new vehicle, get the safest one you can afford; vehicles with head restraints and seats that have tested well have been shown to reduce the likelihood and duration of neck injury.
