SAFEPROOFING OUR CONVERTIBLE CARS
People are envious of this often familiar scene in the movies: driving around in a flashy convertible to impress everyone and to make them envious of him. Convertible cars are, in a class by themselves and are quite popular. While some may say that these vehicles are just flashy and are tailor-made for those who like to live on the fast lane or live dangerously, this is a clear misconception as these cars have proven to be even safer to drive around than any other ordinary car.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with owning a convertible as the demand for it is quite high nowadays. It may very well be every man’s dream to own one, and though we know it to be quite expensive, there are financing institutions who are more than willing to help us out on this matter. However, what stops people from going on with their dream of driving around in a convertible is that if it is safe to do so? After all, they often see in the movies, and even on television, that majority of the convertibles end up being crashed or being a total wreck.
Who says our convertible has to end like those in the movies? With smart safe proofing, it can easily be prevented. These luxury cars are built with their lightweight design, and the dangers of a roll-over happening in the even an unfortunate accident occurs is somewhat lessened. Being lowered and too close to the ground, the probability of a roll-over occurring is very minimal. Nevertheless, leading automotive manufacturers have now equipped their latest models with safety devices to erase the conception that luxury cars sacrifice elegance and style for security. For one, almost all convertibles have a roll bar to protect its passengers in the remote event a roll-over happens.
Luxury car or not, the decision on whether to safe proof our convertible lies on us. We can have the usual airbags and sensors installed, just like any other vehicle. Ultimately, the decision will still be ours because we will be the ones who will be driving it. The only question to be asked is how bad do we want to be kept safe in our convertibles whenever we go out and drive into the sunset. A convertible is just like any other car and we can do whatever we want with it. Who says that we cannot drive in elegance and style and be safe too?
