Last week, we discussed the problems with the Takata airbags that have been installed in millions of Honda, Toyota, BMW, General Motors and other car manufacturer's vehicles.

Four individuals have died in explosions traced to these airbag explosions in car accidents.

Airbags have been a great help in reducing vehicles fatalities. Thousands of lives have been saved since airbags became standard on most vehicles. The airbag is triggered when a sensor detects extreme deceleration. This causes an explosive charge to fill the airbag in milliseconds, and it inflates and surrounds the vehicle's occupants and prevents them from violently jerking forward.
