There is no actual connection to the car's electrical system, in the Breed
SRA-40 the inertial trigger is integral to the air-bag package within the
steering wheel.

I'm pondering this half with my engineer's hat (is possible/this going to be
dangerous?) and half with my psychologists hat --

"everyone knows that car's with airbags are safer, and this car now has an
airbag, so therefore it is safer"

For the latter, all I really need is a convincing pillow on the
with a nice "airbag" or "Restraint-system" logo. Whether it is functional is
immaterial. Have any of you tested your air-bags to see if the actually work?
Then why are you convinced they will?

Indeed, and at less than 12 dollars for both?  With a proper harness you and
an air-bag are unlikely to meet each other anyway.
