    if youve ever been in an accident with a car the just has a drivers airbag, youll never drive a car again that doesnt protect the passenger too. those things make a world of difference, but the safest route is to never run head on into anything anyway of course.

    That was a paid for health and safety advertisement from trader FM.

    Wow I havent been here in a while. Since now my install has all its plans worked out, wouldnt it have been better to mount the screen on the dash infront of the driver so it can flip and down. You should still be able to see (not sure on your car because its lower then a SUV) so you could have you cake and eat it too. A screen and a airbag.

    I thought of the old auto car (Chrysler?) that put the shift buttons on the wheel. The soon stopped that though - people changing gears whilst cornering would hit R etc.
    But that was a much slower generation.... at the time.
    Though I have heard of a few drivers un-muting their sound and being thankful for armoralled seats.

    And instead of sliprings - maybe some dual-wireless system or at least video-distribution one way (buttons can be serialized, but serial wireless is easy(?))...?

    As to air-bags.... I've converted my steering-shaft (from the radiator panel) to a collapsible shaft - that's enough safety for me! (I'd prefer my wheel anyhow to having impaled ignition keys from an Alpined X5!)


    And a Post-Edit PS - ZX1Cruizer - thanks for the Oma link!
    It's informative in that it shows why I don't want an airbag for my driving (nor ABS etc).
    It's informative for any other selfish ****s around the place....
    It makes me realise when I spectate such events, I don't necessarily have to stress or ponder jumping in said car & .... !**$&%$#!
    It also makes me realise why you NEVER pick on older people. It has NOTHING to do with THEIR frailty - it's all about ours!

    Well I have mixed feelings on air bags, I think wearing your seatbelt properly can do enough. ABS though, My Dodge Shadow didnt have ABS and now its totaled, lol. I have been in a few situations where ABS saved me. I do not believe in traction control and all that computer controlled cr@p. I wonder if ABS on cars is now computer controlled?
