Mr. Right: I've often suggested that if NTSB wants to improve driver safety, they need to start with the attitude of the driver.  Surrounding the driver with airbags is exactly the wrong thing to do.  it makes the driver feel invincible so he will take risks that someone less secure would not take.  If NTSB really wants drivers to practice safe, defensive driving; the airbag system should be replaced with a large, stainless steel spike that, in the event of a head-on collision, would be deployed through the driver's chest.


Only for at fault drivers though.  I'd be okay with a system where if the onboard GPS detects you are speeding or following too closely at the moment the accident occurred, then the airbags don't deploy, and the seatbelt cam disengages.

quatchi: Accidents would be a lot more fun if airbags looked like a pair of giant boobies when they inflate rather than just a boring, plain old bag.

/Why doesn't Detroit think about these things the way I do?

Haven't we been going back and forth on the "are airbags safe" issue for a really long time?  Seems like we've had this discussion before more than once.

/airbags are still a hell of a lot better than no airbags
