Shock Absorbing Seats/Occupant Fuselage

Automobile seats to be constructed on rails, and equipped with shock absorbers that respond to front or rear impact, by sliding backwards or forwards into a shock absorbing mechanism. This design will significantly reduce the effects of harmful impact inertia by providing both mobility, and shock absorption.

The same concept may be applied to the complete occupant fuselage surrounding the drivers and passengers, inside the main vehicle's structure.
