I think that most Americans believe headrests are for comfort, not safety, "head rest." They do not know it prevents whiplash and neither do the dealers. It sounds similar to the deception of American politics. A society that does not care to be informed!
Oh dear...

I just got back from Orlando/Cape Canaveral: loads of headrests, and loads of diversity of character - but very, very few MBs!

I think your observation is off-beam; there coul dbe a very interesting topic around what societies choose to be told, and how it's different in each country and even region: but sadly, to many people will take offence and oppose what they see as a slight.

************************************************** ************************************************** ******

Funny enough, one of my customer, from US (Americans are Brasilians too) came today in his well kept W123 with headrests removed, front and rear. >> Don't like that thay block the rear view and it is not illigal here in Africa << he said. Mentioning of this topic and replies, he simply said that could not care less and he was willing to take the risk of injury for the sake of more classic look on his Merc.
