What are Airbags?
Car airbags are safety devices that are designed to inflate rapidly in the event of a collision or other impact. Airbags are typically located in the dashboard, steering wheel, and other areas of the vehicle and are designed to help protect passengers from injury during a crash.
When a collision occurs, sensors in the vehicle detect the impact and send a signal to the airbag system. The airbags then rapidly inflate, filling the space between the passenger and the hard surfaces in the vehicle, such as the dashboard, steering wheel, and side panels. This helps to prevent or reduce injuries caused by the passenger's impact with these hard surfaces.
Most modern vehicles are equipped with front airbags for the driver and front passenger, and some vehicles also have side airbags, curtain airbags, and knee airbags. The type and number of airbags present in a vehicle can vary depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
