AIR BAG SAFETY

 

Here is a safety note from the Illinois State Police about air bags. Air bags are excellent safety devices, if used in conjunction with seatbelts. Air bags inflate in 1/20 of a second and deflate as quickly. Also, if you are a passenger, do not put your feet on the dashboard. Airbags deploy at 200 mph and this means that your feet will come back at you at 200mph.
