Air Bags Save Lives, But May Also Cause Injuries
However, as many already know, airbags themselves can cause injuries. Keep in mind, its purpose is not necessarily to prevent injury, but to prevent serious injury or death by cushioning a blow that could be far worse if the air bag was not involved.
The statistics find that airbags DO, in fact, save lives:
- Frontal airbags can reduce fatalities in frontal crashes by nearly 30%.
- The airbags that protect the head can reduce the risk of death in a side crash by 37%.
Be sure to never de-activate your airbags, because they could be the difference between minor injuries and death.
