If you've ever driven around India (or at least Mumbai where I was for 10 weeks on and off), you don't really get up that much speed to be involved in may serious accidents. It's not the glued body I'd be worried about, but the 4000psi pressurized tank! Curiously, they don't discuss the horn, which is used more frequently than turn signals. An air-horn driven off the compressed propulsion air would be awesome!
