Takata, one of the world’s largest airbag suppliers, is settling for $1 billion after pleading guilty to distributing defective and fatal airbags. Even with a minor fender-bender, these airbags can explode and fire bits of shrapnel into the cabin. These airbags have been the cause of at least 17 known deaths worldwide. These airbags are incredibly dangerous, and what’s worse, is that millions of cars have had their airbags recalled, but many people don’t know!
