Modern Vehicle Safety

steves-car-accident

My friend Steve was broadsided today by a guy who ran the red light in front of our facility.  Just a few years ago Steve’s head would have shattered the driver side window, and maybe shredded his brain in the process.

But today Steve walked away with a just an air bag brush burn on his forehead.  His Acura (with those well-designed door pillars) was still driveable.  The other driver bulls-eyed Steve’s car right between the wheels.  The sun was out, the roads were dry.  The guy simply wasn’t paying attention.  Maybe he was texting or something.

I will never buy another car without front and side air bags.
