Airbag For Road Safety : The central government is considering making it mandatory for auto companies to have at least six airbags in eight-seat vehicles from October. Giving this information, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said that this step is being taken for the safety of the passengers in the vehicles.
Earlier this year, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways had said in a statement that it has been decided to amend the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 for the safety of vehicle passengers, so as to enhance safety in vehicles. On the question of making at least six airbags mandatory for eight-seat vehicles, Gadkari said – there is an effort.
What is an airbag?
Let us tell you that airbags are installed in different parts of the car, such as doors, steering wheel and dashboard. It is shaped like a bag made of cotton coated with silicone, in which air can be filled at the time of need.
How does an airbag work?
When the car collides with something and an accident occurs, it swells open. At that time nitrogen gas is filled in it. At the time of an accident, when a car collides with something, then the airbag of the car opens according to the speed of the collision.
How does an airbag save the lives of passengers?
When the car collides with something, the accelerometer circuit is activated and sends an electrical current, from which the sensor in front gives a signal to the airbag. Then in less than a second, the airbag inflates at a speed of 300 kilometers per hour and comes in front of the people in the car and saves them from getting hurt.
