Believe it or not, winter is right around the corner. If you are from a part of the country that experiences a harsh winter, you know that this dangerous time can wear out your vehicle. From heavy snow fall to black ice to below zero temperatures, roads in the winter season are riddled with danger. Each year, thousands of drivers end up stranded due to hazardous roads or malfunctioning vehicles, anywhere from short periods of time, to even days. Aside from the typical dangers of being on the road, there is also an increasing danger of hypothermia. Most drivers are not adequately prepared to be stranded, but you can take measures to ensure safety in the event you are stranded in your vehicle during a storm.
First, you should try to keep your vehicle fueled as much as possible in the winter time, especially when taking a long trip. In the event you are stranded, that gas in your tank might be all you have to keep warm for hours, if not days. You can also create a winter emergency kit to leave in your vehicle. Aside from the usual first aid kit, you should include emergency flares, flashlights, a radio, extra batteries, and ice scraper and a bag of sand to help with traction. You will also need to pack items to keep you warm if you are stranded for a length period of time, including: warm blankets, extra gloves, a ski mask to protect your face, extra warm clothing and boots. Make sure the clothing you choose is made of materials that insulate well, such as fleece. Finally, if you have an old cell phone that you no longer use, charge it and keep it in your car. Even if the phone is not connected to any provider, you will still be able to call 911 on it. Alternatively, you can keep a fully charged battery pack and charging cable for your phone.
Part of preparing for the winter season is ensuring your car is safe to drive. If your SRS airbag module has deployed, you likely need to have it repaired or replaced before the winter season. When the airbag module deploys, it became useless and now prevents airbags from deploying in an accident. Thus, there is a great risk to driving a vehicle with the SRS airbag module deployed. Whether you have been in a car accident or purchased a car from an auction, the airbag module should be repaired as soon as possible. While many manufactures and repair shops will suggest you replace the deployed SRS airbag module, Safety Restore repair it for a fraction of the cost, saving you upwards of $1,000! Do not risk driving in the winter season with a SRS airbag module deployed – contact Safety Restore today and get it taken care of before the first snow fall!
Airbags on a car are an important safety tool like seat belts. With over six million car accidents a year in the United States, you have likely already seen or experienced an airbag being deployed. The process begins when the collision sensor sends data to the airbag module, and the airbag deploys and fills with a gas. This process takes place in only seconds, protecting whoever is sitting by the airbag.
Airbags have been around in some form for over 50 years. Patents for basic airbags can be found as early as the 1950s; however, these systems lacked the crucial sensor component. There were also failures in design, such as trying to use compressed air for airbags, which did not inflate fast enough. In 1968, Allen Breed invented and patented a safety sensor system that would lead to the technology necessary to deploy airbags. This system was the world’s first electromechanical airbag system for vehicles.
Ford car company manufactured vehicles with airbags in 1971 experimentally, and General Motors followed suit. In 1973, the first the Oldsmobile Toronado became the first vehicle with airbags manufactured for the general public. In 1974, car manufacturers were required to provide either seat belts or airbags in vehicles, despite lobbying against the requirement by both Ford and GM. However, by the 1980s, most car manufactures not only accepted that airbags were necessary, but sought to improve safety on vehicles. In 1981, for example, Mercedes-Benz created a pretension seat belt that would lock and hold the passenger at impact before deploying the airbag. This was an integration of airbags and seat belts as a system instead of two separate parts, which has become standard on all vehicles.
Today, vehicle safety is continuing to improve. Most cars now have a collision sensor, which sends a signal to the airbag module causing the airbag to deploy. After the SRS airbag module deployed, the airbag module will need to be replaced to reset. If your SRS air bag module deployed, Safety Restore can help by resetting it. When theSRS module deploys, crash data and hard codes get stored which renders it useless. Using only OEM technology, Safety Restore can erase these hard codes restore any airbag module that has been deployed. Safety Restore’s process of SRS airbag module resetting can save you upwards of $1,000.00. If your SRS airbag module deployed, do not delay resetting it any longer – it could save your life!
