and bad repairs being some of the things that have been
The problems were identified by the authorities and were
subject to stricter regulations and the situation has
certainly improved. Also, following discussions with the
BSCDA, the use of fuel cells incorporating bladders and foam

item, there will always be drivers who will spend their
money on other things, rather than on something that is the
best at preventing a fire in the first place.
