On 74’s question as to whether airbags would have been added without govt.mandates, I don’t know. It seems the auto industry is usually kicking and screaming and buying Congressman to delay implementation of mandates all the time. Govt does go way overboard on most regulatory fronts, but we’re glad they did this one. If her head was hurtling into the windshield at the same time the hood of the car was coming through the windshield, she would have died. If windshields weren’t made of safety glass she’d of been hit with a lot more glass than she was. The hospital had to vacuum glass out of her hair and she had glass in her clothes.
