Does the airbag in your car actually work?

In order to make a quick buck, dishonest people knowingly install faulty or counterfeit airbags that will not inflate in the event of an accident. The spread of this crime leaves families who have paid for the real protection of airbags with less money and at additional risk.  This session, I sponsored legislation that unanimously passed the House and the Senate that makes it a class C felony to knowingly sell or install these counterfeit, nonfunctional airbags.

This legislation will now become law with the governor’s signature.
