Head restraints in four out of five sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks do not provide adequate protection from neck injuries during rear end crashes, a new report from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says. "The institute's evaluations show seats and head restraints in many models wouldn't do a good job of protecting most people in typical rear impact in everyday commuter traffic," said Adrian Lund, president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
