Default Inverted emergency egress with the scissor doors...

Has anyone considered how to egress if the car is inverted? I recall seen an article of two people burnt to death because they couldn't get out of an overturned Murci. Being a pilot, I'm always considering and want to be prepared for the worst case scenario. I have an emergency seat belt cutter and hammer.

I apologize in advance for posting such a macabre subject, but it's something that's been bugging me since getting the car.

I keep a glass breaker / seat belt cutter in the center.

Glass breaker - good idea, I should get one.

With tinted side windows, how much more difficulty will it be to break the glass? The glass thickness on our cars is insanely deep.

And adding to this discussion, what worries more is no side airbags. The difference in injuries with and without side airbags is immense. I was in a severe accident at age 18 w/o side air bags in a Taurus that was T-boned. Still suffer daily because of it.

At least if the car burns, you will have a minute or two of roasting and then you're gone. Better than being left alive and with terrible injuries in my book.

I've thought about that, but given the height of these cars, most bumpers are going to smash you in the head anyway, where side airbags are meant more to protect your head from hitting the window, not the bumper of the other vehicle coming through your window. I always find it amazing when I haven't driven for a while and then see how lower I am than everyone else.

I've thought about that, some people have mentioned keeping something more substantial in the car but I figure I'll be fairly motivated to get that window out of the way with the breaker I have if the car is on fire. I don't drive it that much anyway so I'll just roll the dice lol.

Anyone have a fire extinguisher in the car? If so where do you mount it?

I have an F-4 canopy breaker tool to hack out of the windshield and a fire extinguisher behind the drivers seat, if I can't get to them, I'm probably already dead. Number comes up, your done

I rolled my Murci yesterday. Opened the window and climbed out. Nothing to it.

kinda scary.
Maybe open the door before impact like your supposed to in an airplane

On a serious note, having that window hammer is prob the best thing you can have in any car. Im not sure how much use the fire extinguisher would be after a crash like that.
