Have airbags on the mind. And long before the Takata fiasco there where many people injured or killed by them. I would like to know why certain pressurized gas containers are required to have a pressure relief system or valve, as well as a fairly high strength container, where an airbag inflater can be made from almost a tin can thick steel with no relief system to protect from over pressure. I also curious why such dangerous pressure vessel is allowed to be so many inches from your face, eyes etc. while you are driving a vehicle? Weren't the first airbags deployed by CO2 gas cartridges, located away from the driver?
