Q Is it true that airbags won’t deploy if you don’t wear your seatbelt?
I heard someone say this and I’m wondering how true it is that in case of accident the airbag won't deploy if you are not wearing your seatbelt. How true is this?

No, that's not true... However, that's the reason why you need to wear a seat belt. Without a seat belt, airbags will still deploy, but the airbag deployment can kill you if you aren't wearing a seatbelt.

Never heard that one. I don't think they're connected in any way.

Completely 100% false. Wearing your seat-belt has nothing to do with the air bag function.

When airbags were a new thing, there was always a sticker on the airbag in a new car that said airbags are designed to work with seatbelts, and not to just trust the airbag alone. I think it was there because people would think that if they had an airbag they won't need to fasten their seatbelt. So I can see how people would get the idea that the airbag won't go off without your seatbelt fastened. But that's not how it is.

The driver airbags deploy no matter what. Not sure about the passenger, but most of them deploy based on the weight in the seat. The seat belt might be a factor, but I don't think so especially in modern cars.
