Why Airbags Are Important

We all know that airbags are important to have in any vehicle. There are so many reasons why we need them to keep us safe in the event of an accident. 1.3 million people die in car accidents every single year and even more than that are injured or severely injured. An airbag that is installed and maintained properly can potentially save your life if you were to get into an accident.


An SRS is the long name for what an airbag really is; supplementary Restraint System. It is designed so that if you are in a collision with something, it will come out and create a cushion for you as quickly as possible, preventing this like slamming your head against the steering wheel or even flying out the window. Although airbags have saved millions of lives since they were first put into vehicles in the mid-1970’s, they do not guarantee the safety of you or anyone else in your vehicle. This is why it is important to not only be careful and pay attention whenever you are on the road, but to also take good care of your car. If you get it serviced and check up on regularly, it will make sure that everything is working properly and if you are in an accident, that everything works its best to keep you alive.
