You'd think it would be common sense, but...
I'm *astounded* at some of the unsafe installations I've seen,
including some real doozy's in the pages of QST. Usually they involve
someone placing a device or the cabling in the deployment path of the
airbags. I recall one picture I saw on the web where a guy had actually
glued the mount for his GPS to the dashboard - and the "SRS" logo was
visible right underneath it.
