Automotive airbag system has augmented occupant safety through the incorporation of increasingly sophisticatedfeatures. An airbag is an automotive safety restraint system consisting of a cushion, designed to inflate rapidly duringcollision. It absorbs the shock and reduces the number the casualty rate. The success of this safety system heavilydepends on its correct implementation and timing of its inflation.The objective of this study is to present front air bag defects and its adverse effects on the occupants. It is importantto understand how failures occur and which mechanism is responsible for injuries. This study shows the importanceof using the seat belts alongwith airbag to provide adequate safety to the occupants.
