Unless you are driving a vehicle produced before 1998, you have airbags installed in your automobile. Front-facing airbags were made mandatory in 1998, and side airbags became compulsory in 2009. Airbags were created to protect drivers and passengers from serious injury during a car crash.
While airbags can’t prevent every type of injury, they’ve likely saved millions of people from head injuries and fractures caused by the impact of hitting your head on a steering wheel, windshield, or other hard objects.
Why do airbags hurt? Despite their many benefits, airbags can hurt when activated. Many individuals complain of bruises or facial pain after an airbag deploys. However, the government believes that the benefits of airbags outweigh their risks, and they remain an essential part of every new automobile.
