Recalled vehicles and repairs: What you need to know

American consumers can usually trust that the cars they purchase will be free of serious problems, but that's not always the case. Sometimes, automobiles are plagued by potentially dangerous and life-threatening defects. When this occurs, auto manufacturers need to repair and replace the defects or face the threat of being financially liable in the event that their defects cause injury or death to others.

Car accidents are a leading global killer

Car accidents aren't only a major safety concern for people in Pennsylvania. Around the world, traffic collisions are the leading cause of death for children and young people between the ages of 5 and 29, according to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO). Not only do car crashes disproportionately take the lives of young people, they are the eighth leading overall cause of death on a global level. The WHO released these statistics as part of its 2018 Global Status Report on Road Safety, which noted that 1.35 million people were killed in 2016 in traffic incidents, outstripping the death tolls associated with tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.

External airbags could make car crashes less dangerous

For many people in Philadelphia, improving vehicle safety is a top priority. Car accidents can cause devastating injuries and even take lives, so using technology to make deadly crashes less likely could be highly beneficial. One company is working to develop external airbags that, unlike traditional airbags, sit on the outside of a vehicle. According to tests, external airbags could make crash injuries 40 percent less severe for people in equipped cars.

Driving tips for Pennsylvania winters
