The AP (12/15) reported that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety "named a record 115 vehicles as ‘top safety picks’ Monday, including the new versions of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry." This list "includes 18 new recipients on top of the 97 who qualified for the award last year and had it carry over to the 2012 model year."
CNNMoney (12/15, Valdes) noted that in order "to earn a Top Safety Pick Award, a vehicle must earn top marks from the Institute for front and side impact protection, rollover protection and whiplash protection."
When purchasing a vehicle, please do so with safety in mind first. And remember, never drive distracted.
