Okee dokee, Henry Atkins! lol

Have you been around the block enough to see the irony of a man who fears nothing being worried about a .7% chance of receiving a fatal airbag injury?

I'm assuming you made up that ".7% chance" because that too darn high for me. That's like 1 out of every 143.

EDIT: Just looked it up and it appears to be .07% which is 1 out of 1430. That's a little better. Especially when you factor in the chance of getting in an serious accident, which is something like 470 to 1(in a lifetime). So now we talking 470 x 1430 = 672,100 to 1.

Why would I make it up? They dud a study of the unused air bags that were donated. Toyota was 3 something %. I just wouldnt want the responsibility of suggesting to people to disable a safety device that could save their life.

It's your guys' choice, I just thought people might want the numbers so they can make up their own mind. Take care either way!

Not sure if you looked back at my edit.
But first, the reason I questioned if you made it up was simply based on the fact that I thought it sounded a bit on the high side.
Then when I looked it up I found it was .07% I felt was a little more reasonable.
But I agree you have to look at the odds and make up your own mind.

My bad. I was under the impression you didn't need seatbelts or clean drinking water to survive. LOL

What you all are forgetting is that some of these airbag deployments are happening without the need for an accident. They just go off, so I think sticks has a valid enough point. Frankly I'd rather have mine unplugged also.

I enjoy suggesting a sharpened steel spike in the place of the airbag...the number of accidents would go down.

From cnn...

Not everyone thinks this is a good idea, since only a small percentage of the defective airbags are likely to explode in a crash. More people could be killed due to disabled airbags than by the defective airbags, said the Center for Auto Safety's executive director Clarence Ditlow.
"You save more lives by leaving the airbags in place than you would lose lives by the airbag exploding," Ditlow said. Even if a driver is wearing a seatbelt, he said, airbags can provide life-saving protection in a crash.



4 deaths out of 8 million cars. But I guess an oldtimer drinking from his garden hose is smarter than the executiver director of the Center of Auto Safety, huh? lol

Apparently you've reached a ripe old age by not thinking, so probably best not to start now.

While are bags have been proven to save lives during crashes at higher rates of speed, its the accidents at 30kmh that would normally just ring your bell that could be enough to deploy a potential deadly airbag!

So while deactivating an airbag could be fatal to you during a high speed crash it might just avoid a potential disaster from an other wise walk away fender bender.

Something to think about....

The real issue is the Federal mandate that since seat belts aren't mandatory in all 50 states, airbags have to be powerful enough to act as a primary safety device. Ie: designed as if you won't be wearing a seat belt.

The result is that they explode more than twice as violently than the ones in cars in Europe and Japan do.

Note:
New Hampshire Primary for children only No law for adults.

That's the one holdout that's making the airbag charges more powerful than they need to be. IF the faulty airbags exploded with 1/2 or 1/3 the power, I doubt if anyone would have died.

I get what your saying, but you have to agree that people have been doing just fine before airbags were ever put in a car. Ive had as many vehicles that didn't have airbags as those that have. I've also never had one deploy. Been in a few pretty serious accidents and walked away from them all.

Most recently I was in a rental Impala and got hit from the rear on the freeway spun around a few times and had an 18 wheeler take off the entire passenger side of the car. Not a single airbag deployed and I walked away with only a bit of whiplash.

My mom got in an accident in a older 90's Chevy passenger car where she hit a different car at about 20 mph and the airbag burned her arm, broke her wrist, and hit her in the face fracturing/cracking about 4 of her teeth.

So personally I don't see the draw. I believe in seat belts, not so much airbags.

I'm more interested in the radiator hose replacement to save my "water pump" from early death. Did the repair myself, now I will wait on this recall to "work itself out".
