But they are supplemental systems only -- so they work m safety belts. not instead of them. Every air bag system ever offered for sale has required the use of safety belts. Even if you're in a vehicle that has air bags. you still have to

buckle up to get the most protection. That’s true not

only in frontal collisions. but especially in side and other collisions.
