To be completely honest here, does anyone really utilize headrests? My head never ever rests on the head-rest mainly because I have gelled hair and what not. The spouse doesn't either because she's constantly worried about messing up her hair, unless it's late and shes tired and not going anywhere haha.
it's a requirement for safety
anyone who has been rear ended can attest to this
just the fact that car makers still include them regardless of what typical of vehicle it is, tells you at lot.
