New Delhi: A message is going viral on the social media that says that the rod of the head rest of a car’s seat is kept pointed so that window panes of car could be broken in case of emergency.
It is being claimed that apart from making the rods of headrest pointed, the window panes are manufactured in such a way that they could be easily broken from inside. The message says it is unfortunate that most car owners don’t know about it.
ABP News viewer Satyam Mishra sent us this post for investigation. When we talked to auto expert Ranjoy Mukherjee he said headrest of many cars can’t be taken out. However, he said it is true that headrests are made pointed so that window panes can be broken from inside. He, however, said it was not true that window panes are easier to break from inside.
According to the central motor vehicles rules, it is not mandatory to make detachable headrests. Infact, no such rule exists in any country of the world.
This message is false.
