STEER CLEAR OF DANGER

Airbags are amongst the most common safety features in modern vehicles. Although airbags have saved thousands of lives, they can pose a safety risk, especially when a malfunction occurs.

Airbags inflate in fractions of a second due to a chemical reaction that forcefully expands the bag when the onboard computer detects a crash. Occasionally, airbag sensors may not properly identify a crash and the airbags may not deploy, denying occupants the necessary cushion to reduce injuries. Airbag failures can also occur from an accidental inflation which can be caused by overly sensitive sensors resulting in the vehicle being difficult to maneuver.
