I know for many decades now that there have been people claiming that air bags kill more people than they safe. But I can tell you from first-hand experience that is not the case. On Friday evening I was making a left hand turn when a lady with her baby and dog in the car ran a red light and the whole front end and drivers side of the car were completely smashed. The air bags went off to help protect me from the impact. I was told that if the air bags did not go off, I would have died. Thankfully the baby, dog and woman are fine. The woman sustained minor injuries, as did I.
