yes the most damage done is via the sides
the front and back have those special zones and have more space for impact than the side

I agree w/lovebird

I'd prefer side airbags, rather than front airbags. My seatbelt will do more to stop me hitting the dashboard or steering wheel than an airbag would. The side of the skull is the most fragile part, and the most easily damaged in a side impact car accident.

Yes, because not all accidents are head-on, and when your head hits that side window in a high speed side impact crash, you're almost guaranteed a concussion or a fractured skull.

No, they are starting to find more and more evidence that side impacts hurt more people then they help. I mean, how many exploding bags of air can surround a person safely?

#6 ssdss - I don't buy that, and it's contrary to everything I've ever read.

no, air bags are bad enough as it is
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/8/04 - 7:15:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, they're lifesavers more often than killers.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/8/04 - 7:16:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
I guess people who don't want them should be given the option to not have them, but whatever
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/8/04 - 9:03:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I hate airbags. I know someone who was killed from one.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/20/04 - 10:45:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes- I thought they were though
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 12/22/04 - 2:38:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I believe that airbags save lives. I think all cars should have them.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/9/05 - 9:51:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Airbags have killed people.

So have side impact collisions! I've heard many arguments against automotive safty devices--some people even still believe that seatbelts cause more harm than good! the fact remains that airbags save a great deal more people than they kill.

I don't think any airbags should be mandated. If people want them, they should buy them as an option.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/3/05 - 2:02:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, this could save alot more people.
