What makes a safety feature active rather than passive?
The distinction between active and passive safety features comes in how they keep you safe. While both active and passive features have the end goal of preventing injuries, the two categories tackle this goal in different ways. Active safety features aim to prevent and diminish the impact of a car accident, while passive safety features create barriers between passengers and possible sources of injury.
Active safety features are technology features that respond to the environment. So, they take an active role in keeping you safe. Passive safety features may include technology and may also respond to the environment, but they don’t prevent car crashes. An example of a passive safety feature is an airbag. Airbags are technology, and they do respond to the environment by deploying in a crash, but they prevent injuries rather than preventing the car accident.
If you are still confused about the distinction, it is easiest to remember that active safety features are more recent developments. Passive safety features have been around for longer and include all of the traditional safety features you think of on a vehicle. Think of airbags, seat belts, and the frame of your vehicle.
