Defective Parts and Vehicles
DALLAS, TX, June 20, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Vehicle safety is important to everyone who drives. The safety of your vehicle does not only concern you or your family, but every other driver on the road as well. Keeping your vehicle well maintained, and obeying traffic laws are definite ways to help avoid auto accidents, but car accidents still occur at an alarming rate in this country.

Even if you take the best care of your car to ensure its safety, defective automobile parts can be unexpected and unavoidable, leading to catastrophic auto accidents.

Defective Tires
Tires that are poorly designed or manufactured can lead to a loss of tread, tire blowouts, or even tire explosions. According to the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety, pieces of blow out tires are the most common road debris. The tires on a vehicle can mean the difference between a safe ride and an accident. Blowouts, or a severe loss of tire pressure, can make it almost impossible to control a vehicle, and almost always result in disastrous accidents.

Defective Brakes
The brake systems in today's vehicles are very complicated. There are a number of ways in which brakes can be defective including:
- Hydraulic lines not connected correctly
- Rotor failures
- Brake pad failures
- Brakes overheating
- Defective brake/shift interlock

The brake/shift interlock is the mechanism that does not allow you to shift out of park into another gear without placing your foot on the brake first. The malfunction of this mechanism can lead to involuntary acceleration.

Defective Airbags
Airbags are a wonderful safety feature that have prevented the severe injury of many drivers and passengers involved in auto accidents. They too, however, can be defective and dangerous as well. Airbags can be defective in many ways, including:
- Deploy when they should not
- Deploy with too much force, resulting in injury
- Deploy with not enough force
- Do not deploy when they should

Technology today has provided vehicles with a number of safety features, but when those parts are defective, they can cause harm, rather than prevent it.
