Avoid whiplash

1 August 2006

RoSPA advises that a properly adjusted head restraint will help to protect you against whiplash, and potentially save you from a long-term injury. Whether you are a driver or a passenger you must always ensure that your head restraint is adjusted properly:

  • Ensure that the top of the head restraint is as high as the top of your head
  • Position the head restraint as close to the rear of your head as possible.
