DwD 0228: Why Race Cars Don’t have Airbags or Steering Wheel Locks
On this issue of Dominating with Dawson, we go over why most of our racing series require the steering wheel lock to be removed from the vehicle and why airbags are not used in race cars. Apparently, the police were in the area during our discussion, apologies for the sirens.
Neither of these will help you on track in a race car and both can actually hurt you if left in place.
