Blow-up belts, which will be available from next year, inflate in less than 40 milliseconds
Inflatable rear seatbelts are to be fitted in cars in Britain for the first time.
The blow-up belts, which combine the restraint of a seatbelt with the protective cushioning of an airbag, will be available from next year.
Ford said the seatbelts would inflate almost instantly in an accident to protect the fragile bones and vulnerable organs of a young child or grandparent sat in the back of its family cars.
