I have voted against it for following reasons,
It's the car manufacture's fault (crime in true words), it's the money spinning attitude. They provide not so important comfort features (powerwindows, electrical mirrors, ice remote lock etc) in mid varient s at buyers cost. They provide safety features (abs
airbags) only in top end (costlier than mid) models thus they compel the safety concerned buyer to purchase the comfort features , even if he is intrested only in safety features.(if you want life and limb safe)
Also they disallow the low end (devoid of safety and many comfort features) varient to upgrade with abs
airbags. If kaput air bag of a bad accident car can be replaced by the service centre , then why the hell a brand new low end varient car is not upgradable?
Policy makers are just watching on the dirty bussiness, not bothered for life and limb of major segment of tax payers (car buyers)
If seat belts, head lamp adjusment device is compulsory even in low end varient,
why airbags abs
are not compulsory in a mid varient in lieu of comfort features? IMO
airbags and ABS
should be made available as optional safty accsesories across all varients
including base varient right from nano to bentley by law
. Owner should be allowed to choose no. of PAB as per his financial condition at various stages.
Life is the cheap and cheapest thing in our country . The population is already exploded.We car buyers pay so many types of taxes (income, vat, exise prof....)including car regn. and tolls on the basis of which the the nation building ( roads, railways, bridges, midday meals ...)takes place. But the rulers know that the car buyers are the people who think and then vote. And they don't want such type of voters ,hence they are least bothered about our safty becoz they know if one tax paying car traveler dies
he will be replaced by some body else , such is the growth of population . So the rulers keep on pampering the pathetic attitude of automakers towards common car buyer's safty.
It is high time that car buyers should for a pressure group.
And I am sad to find that we are discussing this in a country where even head restraints are not coumpulsory OE fitments.

If airbag is engaged becuase of any above reason then that would be the pain for vehicle owners each time.
"People who involve most of the driving in highways should make sure that they have Airbags and ABS EBD
equipped in their vehicles for safety".
It is unlikely and hypothetical for airbags to go operational for reason mentioned above in city and if in case of accident if they go operational what pain and what is the problem?Still If you are worried about it you can use the air bag on off button before you take off.
And who told you that cars plying on city roads doesn't ply on highways.and vice versa?
