[Update: I Do Retract My Original Version Of This: My research is based upon a very limited understanding of the Authors that I have read. Im certain that my assessment that side impacts do not save lives, is not entirely true. In fact, I am drawing those conclusions from only 7 papers. Again, Im certain that I missed much, but my goal is to keep people alive. If it helps even .00001% of the population, it is worth it 100%. I apologize for that comment.] Paul Whitehorn


The first patent for an airbag system in the U.S. was issued to J.W. Hetrick on August 18, 1953. It wasn’t until 1970 when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tried to make laws surrounding restraints and airbags. There were several messy court battles spanning almost two decades with the Nixon and Regan administration, which prevented airbag safety laws. It wasn’t until 1995 that congress finally passed a bill requiring airbags.

Purchase-Dent-Protection-No

Should You Purchase That Dent Or Ding Shield Program?



Hello, I'm a Paintless Dent Repair technician and I've "closed out" thousands of repairs, from all of the major dent and ding policies. Notice that I didn't say, fulfilled, I said: "closed out". That is because over 80% of those making claims are being denied for two main reasons.


  • One, it's not in the tech's best interest to fix the dent (No fiscal motivation to repair or deal with the paperwork).
  • Two, the guard plan, does not cover the damage, even for small dent repairs. Don't purchase a product that you don't need, from a third party that doesn't fix dents, for something you cant use if they did. Here are several major carriers to avoid:

No, You Are Not Painting Over Your Dent Cheaper

Not-Getting-Painted-Cheaper"Perhaps your value structure needs some serious retooling. Perhaps what you want is blinding you to what else could be. Perhaps you are holding on to your desires, in the present, so tightly that you cannot see anything else—even what you truly need." Jordan Peterson


Attempting to compare a repaint to a paintless dent repairs value is no contest, it's not even the same sport. Repainting a vehicle is never cheaper than getting a paintless dent repair, even if the body shop quote is cheaper. Luxury items, like getting a minor dent repaired on a car by highly skilled artisans, don’t fall into the typical commodity category either, because there are varying skill levels with very different results. Like hiring a portrait painter, you can get a cheap stick figure drawn in pencil or a detailed oil painting — the prices will differ. So when looking for a paintless dent repair, choosing the right person for the repair is more important than a price point.
