Airbags were created/invented by a person who thought people would not wear seat belts. Do a Google search and you will be able to confirm this. Sadly this person died relatively recently due to a car accident and unfortunately was not wearing a seat belt.
As I wear my seat belt, if I owned a car that had reached that 10 year limit, I'd consider removing the airbags or their activation control.
I believe it is also impossible to confirm if an airbag has indeed ever saved anybodies life, but we know that early ones injured or killed young children ... but yes the driver is actually the one responsible for causing the accident in the first place.
Many have said that the driver should have a sharp spike pointing at him/her from the centre of the steering wheel if they really wanted to improve road safety. Making cars "feel" overly safe does not improve road safety, it makes drivers blasé ... unfortunately.
Just my opinion.
