ABSTRACT
The article focuses on air bags, a bag of nylon, plastic, in a passenger restraint system that inflates instantly within an automobile at the impact of a collision, to protect riders from being thrown forward. Air bags have already saved hundreds of lives, and how, by installing them in all cars, we could prevent 10,000 highway deaths and more than 100,000 serious injuries every year. In July 1984, the U.S. Department of Transportation instituted a requirement that such automatic front-seat-occupant restraints as air bags or automatic safety belts be installed in every new passenger car by the year 1990.
