Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport and Highways, has stated that the government will require automakers to include a minimum of six airbags in vehicles that can accommodate up to eight passengers.
Speaking at the “Intel India’s Safety Pioneers Conference 2022,” Mr. Gadkari claimed that five lakh incidents result in an estimated 1.5 lakh fatalities each year. A vehicle’s airbag is an occupant restraint system that intervenes between the driver and the dashboard during an accident to shield the driver from severe injury. We require collaboration from all interested parties, including the auto sector, according to Mr. Gadkari. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways announced in January that it had been determined to improve safety measures for motor vehicle occupants against lateral impact.
