BC Drivers: Learn About Airbags for Ford Vehicles

May 25,2022

While many newer mechanisms inside Ford vehicles are designed for comfort and convenience, some are absolutely necessary in order to drive on the streets legally. Airbags are arguably one of the most important elements inside any model, and they are installed to provide cushioning in the event of an accident. 

It wasn’t until 1998 that airbags were made mandatory in Canada and the United States. Now, automobiles are produced with many different styles of airbags including multistage front, side-mounted, curtain, knee blockers, and more. 

They work when an impact occurs which triggers the balloons to deploy and rapidly inflate. Their purpose is to reduce the impact on the human body and minimize the riders’ chances of coming into contact with hard surfaces inside the cabin. 

Cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs also now come with airbag deactivation. This is a sensor that can detect if a passenger is sitting in the front seat. If no prescience is detected – meaning significant weight is not placed on the seat – the airbags on that side will become inactive. They will not deploy in the event of a crash.
