Airbag Alarmist

September 11, 2007

While reaching across the front seat to place your briefcase or other object on the passenger seat, be aware that your cell phone, metal belt buckle, eye glasses or pacemaker could send a signal to the airbag and cause it to inflate. This would cause horrific damage to your ribs and probably kill you.

It’s also a danger to have a passenger put their feet on the dash, as the airbag might go off for no reason and instantly snap them in two at the waist and propel them into the back seat.
