Many Vehicles Qualify For An Automatic Restraints Auto Discount
During the Fabulous Fifties, car manufacturers built solid steel autos with heavily chromed bumpers that could withstand a forty mile per hour crash with little or no damage. The passengers however were still built of flesh and blood and while the cars survived unscathed in accidents, the occupants were subject to lethal levels of “Shake, Rattle and Roll”.
While safety belts were patented in 1885, American auto manufactureres didn’t introduce an auto seat belt until the 1949 Nash. It wasn’t until 6 years later that the more modern three point design, The “Griswold Restraint”, was patented and was made standard equipment in the 1959 Volvo.
Since then a number of automatic restraint designs have become available, including lap and shoulder belt combinations, front airbags and side cushions and automatically tightening seat belts.
Many auto policies reward policy holders when they purchase new cars with these enhanced safety features. The discounts that are available can range from 0% to 20 %, depending on the company and the policy plan. The dollars saved are so significant that some car buying decisions are made based on the safety discounts available.

To take advantage of all those discounts speak with your local insurance agent.
