I can undestand how you see it Madnoel.

because someone has not needed a reminder in 20 years of motoring does not really make sense, I have not needed airbags in my lifetime of motoring or ABS or seat belt tensioners, or crumple zones, and the many other passive and active safety systems fitted to the cars of today.... But their is no way I would switch them off or disable them in any way.... If I ever have the misfortune to require them I want them all to be fully functioning and able to deploy without any hindrance. .. They save lives and I feel if you are not using them you are putting not only yourself but other people at risk.

How many times have we read in the press about lives being lost because smoke alarms in houses have had the batterys removed or the alarms removed completely.

I along with Madnoel will not be offering any assistance to another Member who wishes to disable any passive or active safety device.
