Anyone concerned about laminated side glass, undeployed/deployed airbags, and anything else related to what happens after your vehicle is in an accident, check out <A HREF="http://www.extrication.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.extrication.com</A> Very interesting stuff, quoting one section, "It has been documented, that there are incidents<BR>where catastrophic failures of the driver's airbag occurred, resulting in<BR>the fragmentation of the inflator units. Video tapes of actual incidents<BR>show how the airbag assembly, in part or in whole became projectiles. Some<BR>units were propelled through the roofs of the vehicles.<BR>In one incident, inflator fragments tore a gapping<BR>3-5 inch whole through the metal roof of one vehicle during an actual<BR>vehicle fire. At one incident, an arson squad was called in to<BR>investigate, the IC thought that a hole in the roof might have been caused<BR>by an bomb."<P>
