Abstract: Statistical analysis of the UK in-depth accident database has been used to establish the characteristics of the 'small driver' at increased risk of injury. Drivers less than 160 cm in height are shown to have a significantly higher than average probability of AIS 2+ head and AIS 2+ pelvis and lower extremity injury. Subject trials have been used to establish the seating preferences of small stature drivers together with a comparison group drawn from the population as a whole.
