    Safety Systems with Engine Off

    Just sat in my car waiting for the wife and had a very near miss. Some idiot in a land rover who wasn't paying attention almost ploughed into the back of me. This made me wonder whether sat here without the engine or full electrics on would mean that if I was hit none of the air bags etc...

    Safety rating and Reliability of R129 vs R107 vs W208

    As I (constantly) pine for an SL... my main concerns often relate to reliability and safety. My w208 scores highly on both of these, in my mind, and i have doubts over the old SL's. Reliability I guess is a question for any of you current owners. Is it more of an issue for the R107, or are...

    It Official AMG SLS Safety car for F1

    See it at MB Video Mercedes-Benz TV The F800 is stunning but the rear looks like a Mondeo or Jaguar XF. Does it makes sense to have an electric diesel E300? The noisier diesel engine to tell pedestrians a car is approaching from a quieter electric engine.:dk:

    Safety Camera Bike's

    These use little men, equiped with Tripods to catch motorists. What do we think - are these really promoting safety, especially when used on a nice large 3 lane motorway, rather than using a van which drivers may have a better chance of seeing. Just to clarify, yes I am bitter - M180 fast...

    Euro NCAP the organisation which rates car safety using their star system is to introduce a new safety rating system for NEW models tested in 2009.

    How far can safety camera vans see

    Okay I'll admit it. I got a little bit carried away on the M9 near dunblane and in the very far distance >1mile I saw a safety camera van parked up in the bridge (on the pavement). I assume that if I could see it, its radar (or whatever) would see me. I slowed down pretty quickly but would it...
