Effects of late airbag deploymentOctober 20, 2018
Todd Tracy’s law firm has demonstrated what the consequences of an accident could be if the airbags do not open on time. The company has posted on its YouTube channel test recordings that mimic normal and late pillow firing.
Late actuation of airbags can cause serious injuries or even death. Moreover, the delay is even of a few hundredths of a second. In 2012, the American organization NHTSA conducted separate tests of non-original pillows, during which it became clear that counterfeit airbegi often do not open completely, or even explode.
Honda also showed the importance of quick and timely airbag deployment. To do this, the company dropped a watermelon onto the airbag, which remained intact in the event of timely disclosure and was completely broken down with a delay of seven hundredths of a second.
