Why are these safety features becoming mandatory in all cars? I am not opposing it but why do we need these safety features in our cars nowadays, except ABS
?. If accidents are the only reason then why is the government not making the traffic rules strict and they could also reduce the illegal licensing for less or unfit people for driving. And if these two are done then we don't need ABS
as we will not be using the Brakes all of a sudden and we won't be in need of Airbags as the crash frequency will be reduced and even though the crash happens then the solid quality of the car will help the passengers.
I am not saying that we don't need safety features and other features but why can't the government make the traffic rules strict and heavy spot fine for those who violate the rules (this might act as a revenue for the government) and we honest drivers can drive more relaxed on roads without expecting any mistakes or crash.
In those days (father or grandfather days) they didn't have these features, the number of vehicles increased from those days to now is high but they didn't have even a power steering or an air conditioner in their cars but still they were more comfortable mainly because of the build quality of the cars on those days when considering safety aspects.
