Heavy keys may cause an accident

TUCSON- It's a warning that affects everyone who owns a pair of these car keys.

Apparently, the more keys and key chains you have, the higher your chances are of getting into an accident.

According to AAA of Arizona, hundreds of thousands of vehicles have been recalled in recent months for faulty ignition switches.

One reason for all of the recalls now, is because today's ignition switch modules are made of plastic and require more complicated electronics because of smart keys and advances in technology. In the past, ignition switches were constructed of metal and were fairly basic.

According to Eddie Paz from AAA there is a way to avoid trouble.

"Only have whatever keys you need," Paz said. "Just the one key and maybe the key fob. And you don't have to worry about the key getting dislodge and the vehicle turning off on you."
