This is a type of car safety device. The purpose of an airbag is to protect the occupants of a vehicle in the case of a crash. In case of the accident, when the system detects collision, some gas fills the airbag, rapidly inflating it to cushion the blow for the car's occupants. This device prevents persons, who are sitting in front, from different head and chest injures.
This protection system immediately activates during a side impact crash and deploy atop the door rails above the side windows. Curtain airbags reduce the risk of head injury in a crash, without them there is little to protect your head from hitting the side of the car or being impacted by objects that you have collided with.
Curtain airbags are side airbags that protect the head.They work by cushioning between the driver or the passenger and the window. They stay in place to protect the head when the car rolls over.
The occupancy sensor detects whether a passenger is in the seat and also determines by height and weight whether a child or an adult is sitting in the seat. The system decides whether or not to allow the airbag to deploy in the event of an accident.
Traction control (Also known as ASR) - is a system that is designed to prevent the driving wheels from slippage, regardless of the degree of acceleration pedal pressure and the road surface.
This device consists of several height-adjustable loop attachment points for selecting the desired seatbelt position. They allow the seat belts to be optimally adjusted to suit the height of the passenger and their seating habits.
The seatbelt pretensioner ensures that the person's body is securely fastened in the seat and in the event of an accident prevents the driver or passenger moving forwards in relation to the movement of the vehicle. This effect is achieved by winding and tightening the seat belt tighter.

The purpose of the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) is to alert you when tire pressure is too low . If the light is illuminated, your tires may be mechanically damaged or be in poor condition.
It is a system that is activated by pressing a button called "autopilot". Once started, the assistant automatically searches for a free space on the side of the roadway indicated by the turn signal. In some models of cars, the computer can automatically park or pull the vehicle out of the parking lot onto the roadway without the driver's involvement.
This is a set of materials and tools used for giving emergency treatment to a sick or injured person.
Knee airbags, which deploy from a car's lower dashboard, are meant to distribute impact forces on an occupant's legs in the case of an accident, thereby reducing leg injuries. Designed to control movement of the lower body, these airbags may also reduce impact forces on the abdomen and chest.
Tail lights are used to alert other drivers about the presence of a vehicle on the road and the change in its traffic pattern. LED tail lights give off much brighter light compared to traditional OEM factory lights. This type of illumination provides two to three times more brightness than standard lights.
It is a mechanism that designed to alert the driver when a car begins to move out of its lane on highways and freeways.

The cornering lamp function is activated when turning. Depending on the steering angle, the fog lights swivel left or right.
The headlights have lamps that swivel in the direction the vehicle is traveling. When the driver turns the steering wheel to the left or right, or when sensors detect a bend in the road, the headlights turn in that direction to better illuminate what's in the car's path.
This is a system, which is an electrically driven rotary pump that sprays water or cleaning fluid at high pressure onto the outside of the headlight glass. This means safer driving in rain or snow.
An airbag is a vehicle occupant-restraint system using a bag designed to inflate extremely quickly, then quickly deflate during a collision. It uses many sensors all over the car, which detect sudden rates of deceleration which suggest an impact has occurred. These systems are linked to a small explosive device, which ignites to produce a sudden release of nitrogen gas.
The emergency services are the public organizations whose job is to take quick action to deal with emergencies when they occur, especially the fire brigade, the police, and the ambulance service.
This is a system that allows you to contact emergency services in critical situation. You can also contact an assistant to help you find a route or other necessary service.

It might be excessive to argue the importance of road safety. Automobile accident figures and media alerts picturing the events do not allow one to forget about it. Nonetheless, what is 2008 MINI Cooper S safety rating? How would it be examined and exactly how harmless is a particular trim?
To begin with, the government and international solutions of qualification of auto safety (New Car Assessment Programs) is really a fairly new organization operating since mid-1990s. In total, you can find nine systems worldwide. Eight of them review automobiles - as well as your ride too – from a five-degree method, where by five stars are the most trusted vehicle and everything near one star is the most hazardous automobile. In this article our company offers details on the safety rating of the 2008 MINI Cooper S for numerous trims. Traditionally, you are able to locate these details with a sticker label within the driver’s area door frame as well as a backup version of it on the windshield.
One of the most extreme 2008 MINI Cooper S safety exams entail all imaginable crash situations, namely: full frontal crash test, offset (partly frontal) impact crash test, rear impact (aka whiplash) crash test, side barrier crash test (this sort of effect can take place every time a car becomes struck by another motor vehicle at a crossroad), side pole crash test (an automobile glides from the street and receives a a peripheral impact on a post), flip over crash test, and – finally – the pedestrian protection test. The safety of the car owner, mature passengers, and children within the back seats – will also be taken into account separately when deriving the overall safety report. Following the enumeration of all feasible accidents, we’d better transform our point of view on the superfluity of warnings and one more time ask you to drive safely and select only secure automobiles.
