How to prevent air bag injuries

The NHTSA recommends all children and rear-facing car seats to be in the backseat. The adults in the risk category should move the seats back at least 10 inches from their breastbone to the air bag.

Another option is to have an air bag switch installed. However, the NHTSA must give you a written authorization in order for the service shop install the switch. Your situation must meet one of the following criteria:

  • You have no back-seats and must place rear-facing infant seat in the front
  • Your driver's seat does not move to give you the 10 inches between the driver and the air bag.
  • You have no choice but to have a child 12 or under in the front
  • You have a medical condition that puts you at risk of injury if the air bag deploys
If you have more question or concerns about air bag safety, you may contact your local service shop or the NHTSA.
