Ford Motor Company has been researching two new designs for seat belts and this could result in reducing injuries and deaths as a result of motor vehicle crashes. One possibility for a safety belt is a design that has four points, which would incorporate a lap belt and suspenders. This design is in lieu of the there-point seat belt that motorists are familiar with. The other safety belt that Ford is looking into has an airbag incorporated into it. There are still some technical challenges that need to be worked through for these safety belts to be useable.
In my opinion, this work by Ford makes sense. Hopefully, this work will result in enhanced safety features for cars. In recent research by Ford, many customers indicated that they were more comfortable and felt safer in four-point safety belts, than three-point belts. American citizens have become increasingly concerned with safety issues and expect the federal government and the automakers to do their part.
