But I find the anti-lock brakes to be a little too intrusive, and they make braking and turning in parking lots in the snow less accurate. They are perhaps more helpful in a "slam on stop" driving in a straight line.
I'm not wild about air bags either. I drove cars without air bags (and wrecked two of them) but my seatbelts did their job fine and I wasn't injured.
Congress has mandated too many things on cars, it adds weight and complexity, hurts fuel mileage.
