Please remember your Airbag

According to Wikipedia, the now ubiquitous airbag can be traced back to a 1941 patent on the use of air bladders for protection during collisions. Nowadays, cars in many parts of the world are required to have them, both for the driver and the passenger. An article I read today reminded me of an exchange I had years ago with a dear friend about accessory placement in our cars… Both things clicked in my head.
