    I thought that's what seatbelts were for?

    Searched the article for any mention of the word belt... results were zero.

    Even with laminated safety glass, non seat belt wearers still get ejected through windshields.


    Then they're talking about adding yet another BOMB right above your head... as if one in your steering wheel, seat back, and legs aren't enough?

    But then again, are seat belts even designed to restrain during a rollover? If not, maybe that's the regulation they oughta think about addressing.

    Ummm maybe that's there fault for buying a sun roof.

    Seat belts do help in a roll over so I'm sure there is much more to that story. 18 yr old driver says it all

    I actually love having a window on the roof. Could be much larger as far as I'm concerned. Gives the interior more of an "airy" feeling... less claustrophobic or "cagey". Quite nice...
