The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration is telling owners of certain models to stop driving them.
The vehicles in question are two models of trucks -- many of which are in Houston.
Federal officials say repairs for the defective airbags are not being done fast enough on the 2006 Ford Ranger and the 2006 Mazda B-series trucks.
