A.B. 10116 relies on unsubstantiated claims that grille guards obstruct airbag sensors, rendering the airbags useless in an accident.
Huh?! Airbags ARE useless.. in and out of an accident!

airbags save lives! my new freestyle has 8 of them.

most all newer cars do not have crash sensors in the grill anymore anyway, most are in the middle of the car/truck mounted to the floor.

OBSTRUCT the sensors? You can't obstruct the sensors. They respond to intensity of impact for crying out loud.

I guess the bars must REDUCE the intensity of the impact then? If it were so, it would be a GOOD thing.

I'd sue the state for the cost of the brush guard then. If they want to make them illegal there will have to be an alloted amount of time to remove them at very least, so you could probably get away with claiming you didnt know about the ban for a while
