Research shows that most fatal accidents involved front passengers who did not use the safety belt and did not have an airbag.

RANTAU PANJANG: All vehicles, except four-wheel drives, will be required to be fitted with airbags from next year, Transport Minister Kong Cho Ha said today.

He said the measure was to reduce risks of death in road accidents.

The government was particularly concerned with fatal accidents due to inadequate safety equipment, he told reporters here after launching the road safety campaign in conjunction with the coming Chinese New Year.

He cited research done by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety which found that most fatal accidents involved front passengers who did not use the safety belt and did not have an airbag.

Kong said his ministry would ensure that vehicles manufactured in the country and the national car were equipped with safety airbags before the new regulation was enforced.

He said there would be no problem with imported vehicles as most of them came equipped with safety bags.
