Coleman Jr. announced yesterday he will try to get automakers to install air bags and other passive restraint devices on selected 1979 and 1980 model cars, but will not at this time require them on all new cars.' He said he is convinced air bags could save many lives and prevent numerous injuries, but he said the majority of the public opposes the devices. The demonstration program he proposed is intended to overcome that opposition. Coleman proposed at least two automakers market air bags or other passive devices on at least 250,000 total cars of various sizes in the model year that starts on Sept. 1, 1978, and that they market an additional 250,000 cars with passive devices in the 1980 model year. He said the air bags would be sold, if the demonstration goes as planned, at less than $100 for both driver and front seat passenger protection and for less than $50 for driver only protection. Those figures are what the government estimates the devices would cost if all cars were equipped with air bags.
