Talk about a wake up call, America.

Crash test dummies are starting to pack on the pounds to better reflect the obesity in America.

The robotic-like devices are swelling from an average 167-pound dummy to a staggering 270-pound fake man. Current seat belts and air bags aren’t designed for overweight people.

Wow, is all I can say. We need to take a serious look at our health for so many reasons and this one just added to the list.

Can you imagine being more at risk to die in a car accident simply because you're overweight and therefore not sitting in car seats properly?
