As a car owner, most of us get pretty carried away when it comes to buying accessories to decorate and personalise our vehicles.
Recently, a short video began circulating online, raising awareness that perhaps some car accessories can contribute to accidents.

- Carpets of the wrong size
When an ill-fitting carpet is placed in the footwell of a car, it can be difficult to hit the gas and brakes…leading to accidents.
- Dashboard covers
They can stand in the way of airbags being deployed!
- Set belt clips
This accessory can not only contribute to drivers and front-seat passengers being thrown out the windshield, it can also stop you from getting your insurance claims.
- Steering wheel stickers
Sure, it looks pretty, but please consider that it can harm the driver when the airbag is deployed.
