The authors briefly describe the lesions sustained by 38 patients admitted to a neurosurgical service between 1970 and 1984. All patients had fractures of the pedicles of c-2. 35 of these patients sustained their injuries in car accidents, three-quarters of which were frontal collisions. 28 of these 35 patients were wearing safety belts, but had no head rest. The remaining 7 were not wearing safety belts. These numbers indicate that the wearing of safety belts without head rests lends itself to this type of injury (TRRL)
