Coming from the first carmaker to bring you seatbelts (not including the makers of the Flintstones sweet ride), Ford announced the first automotive inflatable seatbelts,which is basically a mash-up of a traditional seatbelt and an airbag.
Ford claims this will help reduce head, neck, and chest injuries for back seat drivers. We are in support of anything that will prevent us from smashing into the TV’s now found on the back of many headrests. No word yet on when they will offer an optional popcorn filled airbag-seatbelt.
On a side note, we are all for full-time deployment, as it would make long road trips a little more comfortable.
