Even if the local manufacturers start offering Airbags it will be VERY HARD to change the driving habits of our population. We will have to start using seatbelts, mothers WILL have to seat and tie their infants to a car seat. Infants and toddlers will have to understand that they cannot sit in their parents lap anymore because the airbag if deployed will probably kill them. Everyone will have to get their cars insured because repairing the air bag system would alone cost big money.
Right now we are surrounded with drivers who think they are in US or DXB because they keep driving on the wrong side of the road.
All the imported car owners, please don't make your children sit in the front seat EVER.
