Saw this woman on the M621 this morning. Can't believe how close to the steering wheel she is sat. If her air bag goes off it will take her head off!

Driving while sitting that close to the wheel is indeed dangerous, she'll hit the wheel at the same time as the bag fires so she'll get a double crack in the chest.

Not good or safe.

I sit as far back as I can and recline the seat so I'm not sat bolt upright, so uncomfortable.

Cars with movable steering wheels and pedals should be standard, or maybe create a "short" package optional extra which gives the option for the steering wheel and pedals to move closer - otherwise its an accident waiting to happen!
