Insurance Institute Video Describes Steps to Airbag Safety

This Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) video is called "Kids and Airbags." In describing the video, IIHS points out that airbags have been effective in saving lives and preventing injuries. They stress the benefits of airbags; however, they warn that "airbags also are causing some adverse side effects including some serious injuries and deaths." Since the greatest risk is to infants in rear-facing restraints and to unrestrained children, IIHS has used crash-test footage to prepare a video demonstration of correct infant and child restraint. According to an IIHS advertisement, "By following a few simple precautions in the video, adults can ensure optimum protection for everyone."

Copies of the video are available for $10 each (includes shipping and handling) from:
