That's an amazing statistic. I wonder how they came to that and if it is accurate. My father doesn't trust air bags for some reason. He considered taking his out. It was in 1997 when that controversy came about.

But you still can't beat Physics 101! Even now in 2004!

Hmmmm. Yes, it's another example of our gov't watching out for us!

So that's 15,000 lives "saved" in 20 years, or 750 per year. Less the 2000-4000 souls who die each year because they drive small, cute, fuel efficient, environmentally sensitive cars. (Not including the small number who are actually killed by the deploying airbags.)

Or a net loss of "only" 1,250-3,250 additional motorists dying annually.
