Headrest rule calls for better positioning

A new federal rule requires automakers to position head restraints higher and closer to the head, according to an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety report.

The group had been asking for the change for years, arguing that many headrests are too low and positioned too far behind occupants to provide adequate support when a vehicle is rear-ended in an accident.
