Fat crash test dummies that weigh 19 stone rolled out to represent the expanding waistlines of drivers - Mirror Online

Obese crash test dummies are being used to represent the expanding waistlines of drivers .

The dummies are designed based on a 273-pound person - or 19 stone - compared to the normal crash test dummies weighing 170 pounds - or 12 stone.

In 1980, the average adult obesity rate in the United States was 15%.

Today obesity has increased considerably to nearly 40% of the adult population.
