Two sites which should have some good info...

First, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (a division of the DOT) has information on its site about buying a safer car. www.nhtsa.gov/cars/testin...2/toc.html Their home page can be found at www.nhtsa.gov/ .

Also, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is an independend agency which researcheds vehicle safety. They have info on ABS & airbags here. www.iihs.org/safety_facts/safety.htm Their main home page can be found at www.iihs.org/ .

Both sites also contain crash test data. Some consumer sites like Edmunds.com may also have good articles about safety features on vehicles.

Hmmm. Well...

For aerodinamics you might try an auto racing site or two. Otherwise, you may just have to take what you know about aerodinamics and infer how it would interact with a vehicle.

What do you mean by "crash reports"? If you're looking for statistics from actual vehicle crashes (BTW, safety advocates avoid the term "accident"), try the NHTSA site I listed above. I know it has at least some data; in fact, I think it has an interactive database with crash data. There are other sites with information compiled, but unfortunately, I don't have them bookmarked. A well worded internet search should turn up more, however. If you want information on a local level, try your County Sherrif's office, Highway Patrol or state DOT.

No ideas on crumple zones. Sorry.
