The federal government is spending billions on a program that’s expected to cost $100 billion to retrofit more than 4 million cars.
Here’s what you need to know about the program and what it’s trying to accomplish.
CAR airbags replace seat belts and seatbelts are a common and effective means of preventing injuries in cars.
But the government is trying to create an entire system for retrofitting cars that is more cost-effective, technologically advanced, and safe.
The idea is to replace seatbelters and airbags in cars with a system that doesn’t require them.
That means it’s less likely that cars will break down or become unsafe.
A system that is not as efficient The program is being called the CAR-3.
Under the CAR system, cars will have a set of airbags designed to protect occupants from head and neck injuries.
But the system won’t have a complete system that works for every car, nor will it be designed to replace every seat belt or airbag.
The cars are going to have a few pieces that are going in and out of the car, to help the car to function properly, said Jim Cogswell, who oversees the program at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Cars will have sensors on the inside of the seats that are supposed to detect a head injury and send a signal to the driver to stop the car.
If the car is a newer model, the sensors will detect a bump in the road and warn the driver that there’s a crash.
If the car has a newer version, the system will be able to alert the driver if there’s something that’s wrong with the car or the system, Cogshell said.
The cars won’t all have sensors for all kinds of reasons.
They can’t be designed with them in mind, or the sensors won’t be able help drivers detect head injuries.
And cars will only be retrofits for certain models.
Some of the cars are designed to have the sensors for their windshield wipers, which are supposed not to be used for this purpose.
Cars that don’t have windshield wiper sensors are not going to be retrofit, said Robert McBride, a retired Air Force pilot who was an expert witness on the CAR program.
The system also isn’t going to replace all the cars with air bags and seatbelt systems.
Some of the newer cars are already equipped with seatbelt and airbag systems.
And it won’t cover every car in the fleet.
It’s a relatively small number of cars that will be covered.
“It’s not a program to get every car retrofitted, but it is a program designed to provide for a lot of vehicles that were designed to be retired and that are no longer in service,” McBride said.
How much money is being spent?
The CAR program is funded through an array of federal agencies, including the Department of Transportation and the U.S. Highway Trust Fund.
CAR-1 cars will get about $75,000 for each year of the program, and the CARs for cars built between 1998 and 2010 are estimated to cost between $150,000 and $200,000.
Cogswel said the CAR money is used to buy the sensors, to buy all the parts, to get the cars ready for installation.
The government also uses the money to install sensors in all the older cars.
CARs cost $20 per car, or about $10 a month.
What about the cost?
The CAR program, funded through federal agencies and the Highway Trust Funds, is meant to help vehicles that are not in service.
Car companies, who are required to retrofits cars that have been retired, are supposed in return to cover the cost of the systems, and there’s been some negotiation.
Last year, the government paid the company to retrobuild a vehicle, and then reimbursed the company for its part of the project.
That company, CarMax, has been paying the government $6.4 million per year since 2000, according to federal records.
Other CARs have cost more than $200 million.
While it may seem expensive, there’s some justification for this kind of money, said Cogwell.
It makes sense to retrofill vehicles that have worn out or are in bad shape, he said.
Cars are supposed be built to last for many years, not just a few.
More than 70 percent of cars in the United States are at least 50 years old, and cars are getting older, said John R. DeLuca, who researches vehicle reliability and safety at the Transportation Research Board.
When they get older, older cars are more likely to break down and get damaged, and older cars tend to have fewer passengers and have higher crash rates, he added.
The CARs that will replace the seats and air bags are also being retro
