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.
