/Why Are Car Seats Crash Tests Only Up To 40mph?

All tests on products are only tested to that speed because 99.4% of injuries and deaths in road accidents occur within city limits. The crash test is done from 40mph to 0mph and the impact is one tenth of a second. This covers potential injuries for all other crashes that don’t stop so suddenly. A test at 70mph to 0mph in less than a second would not be survival even if all safety features were in place and working efficiently.
