Side Air Bags Save Lives

According to emergency medical experts, installing side air bags in all cars could prevent more than 2,000 deaths or cases of serious brain injury. People in cars hit from the side were more than twice as likely to suffer traumatic brain injuries than people hit head-on or from behind. Currently, new car buyers pay about $400 extra for optional side air bags.
