According to Australia's National Road and Motorists Association (NRMA) Insurance company, automakers are neglecting women by not making “common sense” security devices standard on their vehicles, especially on less expensive models.
Some suggested devices include:
  • Lights stay on as one leaves the car.
  • The ability to turn on the car’s headlights remotely.
  • Doors that lock automatically as one starts to drive off.

Of course, not all drivers (or Autoblog staffers) are crazy about auto-locking doors, and some fail to grasp why the article is gender-specific, as safety is concept generaly valued by all, regardless of chromosomal makeup. In the meantime, hopefully the first “female” crash test dummy will illustrate that the automakers are definitely interested in security and safety for the fairer sex.
