This study applies NASS/CDS, GES and FARS data to examine occupant exposure plus injury and fatality rates for belted occupants in frontal crashes by seating position, age and gender. The NASS data was used to examine the distributions by crash severity. The GES data showed that when two elderly occupants (age 65+) were present, the female occupied the right front passenger position 73% of the time. A paired comparison analysis using FARS data showed that, for elderly occupants (age 65+), the fatality risk for elderly right front passengers is 42% higher than for elderly drivers. The NASS/CDS analysis found 74% of the seriously injured vulnerable passengers with MAIS 3+ injuries were in crashes less severe than 26 mph. This group of injured occupants was made up of 43% aged 50 and older and 42% younger females. The injury rates for the older (age 50+) right front passengers were 1.8 times the rates for the elderly drivers. These results suggest the need for more benign safety systems for the right front passenger that are appropriate for the lower injury tolerance of the predominant occupants of that seating position.
