Air Bags Ford 2013
I Am An Official For A Large Police Agency. It Was Brought To My Attention A Serious Safety Concern Regarding The 2013 ford Interceptor Sedans. The Partitions That Are Being Installed That Separate The Officer From A Prisoner Have A Flaw. But The Flaw Was Developed With The Insight Of The air Bag Manufactured By ford. ford Developed The Interceptor For The Sole Purpose Of Being The New Police Car For America, Possibly The World. When ford Developed The Interceptor, Their Designers Failed To Recognize One Simple Fact. That Police Make Arrests And The Arrestee Would Be Placed In The Rear Of The Vehicle For Transport To Wherever. With That Fact, A Designer Should Have Realized That The Partition Needed To Separate The Prisoner From The Officer Should Be Just That, Separating Any Physical Contact From The Prisoner. It Appears Thats Not Possible With The Way ford Developed The Side Curtain airbags. ford Failed To Realize This Issue In Development And Created A One Piece Side Curtain airbag Making It Impossible To Safety Separate The Prisoner From The Officer. With This Fact It Appears That The Manufacturers Are Designing Partitions That Leave A 4″ X 12″ X 6″ Hole At Head And Neck Level Of An Officer Sitting/driving In The Vehicle. This Area Has Been Fabricated With A Flimsy Piece Of Plastic Leaving The Officer Vulnerable To Possible Injury Or Death From A Prisoner Pushing By The Flimsy Plastic Making Contact With The Officer. The Plastic Was Designed With The Theory The air Bag Could Push It Out Of The Way For Full Deployment. This Is A Design Flaw As ford Should Have Developed A Two Piece Curtain air Bag, Thus Allowing A Prisoner To Be Secured And For airbag Deployment Should An Accident Occur. I Find This Is A Major Issue In Officer Safety And A Major Issue As ford Developed This Vehicle With The Specific Use As A Law Enforcement Vehicle. *tr
