Airbags

Airbags were never designed to replace seat belts. That is why an airbag is called a 'supplemental restraint'. When the airbag deploys the seat belt helps protect the occupant by providing body support and preventing occupant ejection. The airbag creates a cushion between the occupant and the steering wheel, dashboard, windshield or other surfaces. Airbags are designed to protect the head, neck and chest.
