KSLA News 12 Editorial: July 10th-Air Bags Recalled

Recently, a number of car manufacturers issued recalls because the air bags installed in some cars may not work.

That's a scary thought because there is really no way for us to know if they will work or not until they're needed. And it's a reminder of the importance of wearing seat belts. 

Edwin Christian from Scottsville, Texas sent me an email making that very point. he writes: "Seat belts save lives and are reliable! Too many people are dying on our nations highways and byways because they don't take the time to buckle up.  If you think the air bag will save you without your seat belt, think again!"

Just a couple of weeks ago, a woman died in a car crash in the ArkLaTex. Police said she wasn't wearing a seat belt. It could have made a difference if she had.  

I'm James Smith.

    Driving impaired is not just irresponsible, it's selfish. And today with cell phones and Uber, it is too easy to find another way. Drunken driving also just isn't worth the risk to you, your passengers or others on the road. Just don't do it.
