Let’s dispel some of the myths about airbags by providing the facts about them.
There have been many recent reports on a few unfortunate accidents involving airbags and children. Although air bags have saved thousands of lives, the media has chosen to amplify the few negative accidents that have occurred.
Automotive manufacturers have made airbag systems very smart. There are a number of criteria that must be met before an airbag system will deploy. It is virtually impossible to deploy an airbag system in anything short of a serious front end impact. Airbags are, of course, designed to decrease injury to the driver as much as possible.
After thousands of accidents and thousands of airbag deployments, there have been only a few unfortunate situations involving small children in the front passenger seat. A word of advice would be to never, ever seat small children in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an airbag. Always buckle them up in the back. We have repaired several vehicles with deployed airbags and the vehicle owners all agree that they would have surely been seriously injured without the airbag deployment. If you have any concerns or questions about airbags, we openly invite you to stop by. We have deployed airbags and information on all makes and models of vehicle airbags. Furthermore, we love to show and tell.
Airbags may not be the perfect answer to America’s road fatalities, but at present there isn´t another automobile safety device which can compare to the combination of seatbelts and airbags. Drive safely, buckle up and always place small children in the back seat. Rest assured that if you are ever in an unfortunate accident situation an airbag may just be the thing that saves your life.There have been many recent reports on a few unfortunate accidents involving airbags and children.
