Deaths Occurring as Airbags Don't Inflate

Many car companies advertise their cars have the best air bags that can save your life in an accident, well an investigation by The Kansas City Star has found that many more people have been killed in accidents in which airbags didn’t deploy at all. Between 2001 and 2006, at least 1,400 people died in front-end crashes in which the airbags didn’t inflate. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data reveal that even though overall traffic deaths have declined, the number of deaths in accidents in which airbags didn’t deploy has grown significantly since 2001.
