The Notion of Safety-
so much attention to safety is based around protecting the people within the vehicle

yet there is far less concern for how the exterior of the vehicle will impact pedestrians or cyclists
in the case of the collision
the crumple resistant side panels and all the various airbags will do nothing for person on the outside who may be a victim of a Blackberry weilding car driver
Martino at
The Bike Diary posted this editorial about trucks and mandatory guard rails
Japan's technology leads the way in pedestrian concerns
Honda's G-Control Technology also takes the human element into consideration

exterior airbags to protect pedestrians

honestly...
these adaptations would be less vital if people could be injected with a dose of common sense and a tad bit of empathy
