To prevent accidents anywhere, whether in your own parking garage or elsewhere, always consider your health and safety as top priority. There are some safety measures available that will minimize getting injured in a car accident. As long as they are properly used, they will reduce the risk of injury to your life and limbs.
For example, the seat belts and the concept of the airbag have been invented years ago. The wearing of seat belts for all car passengers have become a law and non-compliance merits a penalty. Since 1998, all new cars sold in the U.S. have been required to have airbags installed on both driver and passenger sides. For light trucks, the requirement came in 1999. Statistics show that airbags, properly used and installed reduce the risk of a frontal crash by about 30%. Today, cars have even more than six to eight airbags inside.
In the future, an ordinance will be out which requires all cars to have air bags.
