Nowadays,mostly cars are featured with airbags as a safety feature. Car manufacturer have started delivering airbags option in affordable cars. Some people like to buy car for airbags due to security reasons. If you have a car with airbags then you should take care of some things. Let’s know what these special things:
Do not Impose Bullbar on the car
The sensors that detect collision in cars with airbags are fitted forward. Before the car crash, these sensors open airbags. If there is a bullbar at the front of car then the sensor will not be able to work properly. Due to this, opening of airbags can take time and it can be risky for people who are in the vehicle.
Do not put the foot on the dashboard
We should not have legs on the dashboard. Sometimes, airbags are opened only on a minor collision. In such a situation, if passenger has legs on the dashboard, he/she may be seriously hurt. Many times the cases of passengers’ foot breaks have also surfaced when airbags are opened.
Do not sit near the steering
Drivers side airbags are mounted in the steering wheel. Some people sit near the steering wheel and drive around. In this case, the driver can hurt if the airbag opens. So drive away from the steering wheel a little.
You must wear seat belt
Always use seat-belt while driving. In many cars the airbags are tested with seat belts. In such a case, if the car driver do not wear seat belts, then the airbags do not open. So always wear a seat-belt and travel.
Don’t cover the seats by seat covers
Side airbags are being given in many modern cars. You should take special care for these airbags. Most of the cars are provided inside the side airbag seats and their covers are designed to open easily. Seat covers can cause trouble opening the airbag. So do not place seat covers.
Do not keep accessories on the dashboard
It may be dangerous to keep a photo frame, watch or other things on the dashboard. Airbags open very fast, breaking the dashboard. In such a situation, if there is anything on the dashboard, it will go towards the passengers very fast. In such cases, the possibility of injury to the passengers becomes very high.
