In his experience, he contacted Toyota on the issue, in which their response was; “The parts to replace the inflator are not yet available.” When he asked…

    wheel, more specifically the airbag. An airbag is like a really cool balloon, instead of someone blowing it up, or inflating it with a helium tank; an explosion takes care of that. The idea is that the explosion fills the balloon with nitrogen and a wave of concussion, but only for the moment of a crash then the airbag generally deflates. For the most part, airbags are a great safety feature. A nose broken by a balloon beats hitting the steering wheel face first at 30 miles per hour. I, by the…

    however, passing a law to make the wearing of seat belts mandatory and punishable by law is a glaring infringement upon our civil liberties. In 1985 seat-belt laws began passing through State Legislature despite a long history of public resistance to such laws. The facts behind how this came to be are quite fascinating. Automakers were bitterly opposed to a law passed requiring them to install passive-restraints (airbags) in all new vehicles by 1990. Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Doyle…

    unprotected sex, eat junk food, not exercise, refuse medical treatment, all of which, statistically, have a very high chance of killing us. In other words, being a free adult entitles us to be responsible for our own actions, except when it comes to driving a car without a seat belt. Not only are seat belt laws a violation of our freedom, and an additional source of revenue for the government, at our expense, but is it actually safer to wear them than not?
