    That is stupid. That must be a state rule there, but still I think it should be the owners choice not the states. I find signs on the road more distracting than a dvd player.

    Maybe haha

    I still find it stupid. I am pretty sure the people have to sign some-sort of form so it should be the people paying not the company.

    As if a dvd player wont protect you in a crash ...

    If it's so crazily illegal to remove airbags like that - aren't some momo, tenoz R etc. stearing wheels illegal too?

    Actually it's a good thing. Just imaging over the years some of the car speopl ehave gotten done by WCC crash, and the peopel due forn head injury and whatever. ALL the blame woul goto WCC, and that would suck!

    So it's actually good.

    Anywya WTF is wrong with putting a DVD Player in the center console, ot the rear view mirror haha (I think it's Redman ro someone who has that).

    An updated California law that took effect last January also bans most video functions in the front seat, including DVD players, with the exception of technology such as navigation systems.
    SO WTF, IF I HIT SOMEONE CUZ IM CHECKIN OUT WHERE IM GOIN, THATS OK?! THATS ONE HELL OF A DOUBLE STANDARD!

    Yes they are, cars with airbags are designed to work with them , if you got in an accident and you have removed your airbag, you will be in alot of crap with not only your insurance company but the law as well.

    If you want the airbag removed than YOU should be the one with the ticket not the shop that was only doing what was requested.
    I install steering wheels all the time into cars with airbags, the customer HAS to sign a waiver saying it was his choice and the car is now not street legal.
    i have also put screens in steering wheels and DVD players where airbags used to be, but in all these cases it was at the owners request and the waiver was signed.

    Regardless of the fine I doubt the guys from WCC really care. I bet they've made a killing off "Pimp My Ride", and this fine is probably just a bump in the road.

    because in canada our public health care has to pay for your injuries, and the injuries of the person you might hit. I agree with this. there is no need for an entertainment screen for the driver. no need.

    I think its pretty obvious that watching a movie while you drive is retarded, and that removing your airbags is retarded to.

    I don't want to pay for your hospital stay when you collapse your lungs on your steering wheel.

    I agree west coast shouldn't be fined though, but the owners of the car instead.

    I can understand where they are coming from for sure. But people are going to go it regardless. Just like everything else out there that is illegal (ie. pot).
    If people like it...they're going to do it.
