OF THE SEVENTY-NINTH
GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF IOWA
Section 1. NEW SECTION. 321.71A NONOPERATIVE AIR BAGS.
A person shall not install or reinstall for compensation, distribute, or sell a nonoperative air bag that is part of an inflatable restraint system for a motor vehicle if the person knows that the air bag is nonoperative. A violation of this section is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by confinement for up to one year and a fine of at least five hundred dollars but not more than five thousand dollars.
For purposes of this section, "nonoperative air bag" includes an air bag that has been previously deployed, is nonfunctional, or is otherwise defective. "Nonoperative air bag" also includes anything that is inserted, or is intended to be inserted, in place of an airbag, which would prohibit an inflatable restraint system from functioning properly.
