Now that's a worthwhile addition to a car.......even more so in the UK right now.

#2 i think they have it in closed in the door, now unless your door has a rust hole and fills up then i dont think you will have to worry about it.

definitely something that should be added to all cars regardless where you live.

#2 My guess is that it sensors how much water it is....kinda like watches..some are water resistand..but not water proof. So heavy rain wont trigger it, but drowning will. And it can be connected to the it wont trigger when nobody is inside.
I like the idea =)

Why not invent something that the car does not drown?

I'd trust a regular hammer more than this device, cars are getting too digitalized. :| Nice feat though, but I wouldn't want it.

That thing fails on so many levels , why not just have it break the electric window cable and the window will just drop down ?

Also its a cop car ....who cares.

#8, #9 and others... guys, this is an extra safety measure. It is better than nothing. You can still have a hammer ready but if you can't reach it you'd be grateful to have this

Yes, because people drive into water all the time...what a waste of time. It is my opinion that if you drive into the water, then you deserve your fate!

When you consider a) how much this will add to the cost of a car, and b) how few car drivers ever find themselves and their car submerged in water, then it's obvious that this gadget will be a spectacular failure.

Ok, thieves: forget your hammers, bucket of water is sufficient now... :D

Well it was a brilliant idé, but i think the water lvl to turn on the switch should be higher, it seemed a little bit to low. But well, im not a pro on this so, but still :) Great idé anyway!

#9 Electric window cable? I'm intrigued. If it breaks, the window does what??? Police, gardai whatever. Yo Mericans call them cops. Irish don't.

Maybe they could incorporate it with a unit that releases the seatbelt lock too, people might panic and forget to release themselves from their seat.......
