Honda Improves Crash Safety

From the the Detroit News article:

"It's a critical issue for automakers such as Honda Motor Co., which makes mostly small and mid-size cars that are plying U.S. highways alongside ever-larger SUVs and pickups.

To address such safety concerns, Honda has begun fitting protective frames under the hood to prevent larger vehicles from ramming the engine into the passenger compartment during a head-on collision."
