Safety is one of the most important requirements for a car. The safety of particular vehicle can determine both the safety of life of the driver, passengers and pedestrians and the general road safety.
The modern system of car safety includes active and passive parts. The active part helps to prevent a risk of accident, while the passive one allows reducing the severity of effects of traffic accidents and preserve the passengers’ healthy and life.
The passive safety depends on the specific features of car construction: the structure of bumper, the level of stringency of cabin, the level of damage safety of saloon materials, the presence of active headrests, seat belts and airbags. The work of each element of passive safety system separately is inefficient; they are interconnected and complement each other (for example, the airbags are used only together with the seat belts.
