Referencing a previously shared post about the fairly recent practice of car manufacturers moving to laminated glass and a passenger accident-containment imperative, and ignoring possible self-rescue or rescuer-favoured toughened glass is concerning.
This from a C-NET study: (https://lnkd.in/gmBgRSq)
And this from Technology Org:(https://lnkd.in/gZeWFD7)
Both seem to indicate it’s seen by legislators as more acceptable to trap live passengers, involved in less critical accidents, than those ejected in more serious roll-over incidents. As contemplated by the latter article above, I’m not entirely sure passenger ejection isn’t mostly a seat-belt problem.
Run-away battery fires in EV or PHEV accidents are now more of a threat, even without an accident.
