Older Airbags Pose More Danger To Children

Apr 4, 2005 | AP

Children wearing safety belts who are exposed to older air bags in frontal crashes face a higher risk of serious injury than those with newer versions of the air bags, according to a study published in the April edition of the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.

The study found that children wearing seat belts in the right front seat had a nearly 15 percent risk of serious injury from an older air bag.

Children in a similar situation exposed to second-generation air bags or ones built after new regulations in 1997 had a nearly 10 percent risk of serious injury.

Air bags have been credited with saving more than 15,000 lives since the Department of Transportation required all vehicles to have driver's side air bags or automatic seat belts by 1989.
