What does it mean to be a Top Safety Pick+?

Over half of consumers searching for a new vehicle cite safety as one of the important factors in their search. There are two entities which regulate the vehicle safety arena in the US, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which administers the Top Safety Pick+ designation(s).
