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.

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.

My last new vehicle kept lighting up the airbag light, so I kept taking it back to the dealer.  Something about the holder the bag sits in was not right, and the mechanics couldn't get it right.  Anyway, after a few times, some genius decides just to disconnect the relay so the dashboard light stays off.  He gets the whole thing put back together, and drives it out of the bay for me to drive off.  Just as he brakes in front of me, it deploys.  His manager was not happy.

My solution is to not try driving through other solid objects. I've never really understood why people do this. I guess people get bored.

That snowbank looked so fluffy and inviting.

I once activated my front impact collision detection system, just to watch a man die.
