Australia Introduces Airbags On The Outside Of Cars

by | 22nd, December 2010

FANTASTIC travel news from Ashes-starved Australia, from where Tim Blair reports that Sydney cyclists are to get their own traffic lights and, in a bid to prevent injuries, cars will come with airbags on the outside. Yeah, the bag will inflate just, er, before the collision.

Can’t fail:

Under a proposal from the powerful State Government StaySafe committee, cyclists would have their own green traffic signals to get a head start over vehicles – similar to lights currently in use for government buses.

Other plans to protect cyclists include putting airbags on the outside of cars to reduce the severity of collisions with cyclists

Or suffocate them…
