  • The Dangers Of Airbags

    Airbags alone cannot save someone’s life. Yes they can be very beneficial, but for airbags to work properly the occupant needs to be wearing their seat belt for their body to be in the right place for the airbag to do any good. If it is not a direct collision the airbags might not go off. At least that happened for me anyways: I rolled my car on its side so the airbags never deployed. Think about it: if a person is driving at a speed of fifty-five miles per hour and suddenly lose control of the vehicle or needs to swerve to avoid a deer on the road, their body is still going fifty-five miles per hour. Without the seatbelt holding their body in the seat they could fly forward and get ejected from the car.

    casualties, there were still 390 total fatalities alone in Iowa in 2010 (NHTSA). Furthermore, airbags are one of the most essential elements in auto safety because they help protect the occupants in the event of a crash.

  • What Is The Power Of Seat Belts?

    ensuring a safe transportation environment for the people. Politically, it is part of the government. The NHTSA has been reluctant in deciding whether or not to include seat belts in the public transportation system, especially when it comes to school buses.

School buses are at the core of this debate because they pose as a double-sided figure for both the NHTSA and the rest of the stakeholders. For this reason, the NHTSA has…
