More than 30 million U.S. drivers unaware dangerous airbag threat


More than 30 million U.S. drivers have vehicles that contain a potentially deadly threat. The danger includes airbag inflators that in rare cases, can explode in a collision and spew shrapnel. Few of them know it. And because of a dispute between federal safety regulators and an airbag parts manufacturer, they aren’t likely to find out anytime soon.

But ARC is refusing to do so, setting up a possible court fight with the agency.
